Wally and the Weirdos

Wally and the Weirdos came into existence on St. Patrick's Day 1979. The original trio was Russ Krauch on guitar and vocals, Mike (Syd) Barton on bass, and Bob Clark on drums. Vocalist Lee Doll joined in 1981 after the original three had played some gigs. The band started to get their act together by 1982 and was a feature in the Baltimore area club scene. They appeared at Sgt Peppers, The Marble Bar, Full Moon Saloon, and Bac of the Vac. The Wildwood A.A. Country Club became the band's home base. Members of the band changed and in 1983 the lineup consisted of Russ, Lee, drummer Tom Heffernan, keyboard player Andy Domingue and Bill Resnicow on bass. This is the classic incarnation of Wally and the Weirdos. These members recorded and released the 45 single, "Psychiatric Help b/w Unemployment Blues". This was the only record release while the band was still together. Wally and the Weirdos were back to the original trio by 1984. Russ, Bob, and Syd closed the final chapter of the Weirdos with a series of shows at Wildwood Country Club, the Marble Bar, and a grand finale at Catonsville Community College.
