Album Notes

Name: Don Leady
Weapons: Vintage Fender Telecaster, 1965 Fender Telecaster, 1963 Fender Stratoccester
Past History: LeRoi Brothers, Headhunters, Lou Ann and the Fliptops
Profile: Dangerous only when challenged to a duel, Single-note style is deceptively simple
but deadly. Also plays fiddle.

Name: Denny Freeman
Weapon: Fender Stratocaster
Past History: The Storm, Southern Feeling, Cobras, Lou Ann Barton
Profile: One of Texas’ most dangerous blues pickers, Freeman shows here that he can
rock ‘n’ roll on demand. Versatility, virtuosity, and compositional ability make him
an all-star player.

Name: Mike Buck
Weapons: Dram Kit, Chainsaw
Past History: Countless Ft. Worth bars, Johnny Carroll, Fabulous Thunderbirds,
Juke Jumpers, Five Careless Lovers
Current Whereabouts: LeRoi Brothers
Profile: Scientists think certain jungle rhythms can upset teen psyches, and cite Buck as
living example of same. Depraved taste in music and literature, but one of the steadiest
drummers in Texas.
Name: Evan Johns
Weapons: Fender Telecaster; Sears Silvertone Two-Pickup, Vox Supercontinental
Past History: Various Washington D.C. bar bands, The H-Bombs
Profile: Wild-eyed rack n roll madman who characterizes his attitude to performance as “crash and burn.” Songwriter extraordinaire, capable of nearly anything.

Name: Frankie Camaro
Weapon: Gibson Les Paul Junior
Past History: Qax Pistols, Mars Needs Women, Dino Lee’s White Trash Revue
Profile: Surf musician from Indiana, Cuban Camaro combines trash sensibility with classic twang. Willing to do anything. He is recognized as an up-and-comer in Texas.

Name: Keith Ferguson
Weapon: Fender Precision Bass
Past History: Johnny Winter, Doug Sahm, The Storm, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Tailgators.
Profile: Covered with mysterious tattoos and only speaking English when absolutely
necessary, Ferguson is most dangerous in combination with Buck. Long time association with all forms of classic Texas music has rendered him indispensable in high-quality’ rock n roll situations.
