The Individuals - West Haven, CT 1982

Brothers III
West Haven, CT
April 23, 1982

audience recording (sound quality VG+; transfer from master tape; as usual, the house sound needs a little time to get adjusted; there’s some crowd noise, but not much for what must've been a club show…)

Repercussion: In the early 1980s, Gene Holder produced the debut EP and subsequent LP by The Individuals (with the latter engineered by Mitch Easter at Mitch’s Drive-In Studio). Later, Gene cut back his involvements with The dB’s (and eventually departed) in order to join The Wygals, which was formed with two members of The Individuals after the latter disbanded. Not long after The Individuals broke up, Glenn Morrow became an early-in-the-game business partner at Bar/None Records — the same label that released The dB’s Falling Off the Sky in 2012. Clear enough for you??

  1. and the Wygals in turn begot Splendora, who I belatedly discovered last year achieved some renown as a non-album track of theirs is a theme song for a MTV show.
