In 1982, I joined up with a very talented singer, song writer, guitarist band leader Gene Oliver in his “ALL ORIGINAL MATERIAL” BAND, PLASTIC POLLY. Gene was further along than me in every way. He was confident of his talent, lyrics and musical direction. He was also “weird”, like ME, but more developed. Drummer Dave Gasparri and I developed a good, tight connection. The singer was a good looking guy named Jerry. PLASTIC POLLY was the only benefactor of a Teac 4 track cassette machine that I'd managed to get my hands on and , thankfully, John Dugan, the sax player and my roommate was experienced enough to capture some well rehearsed music…my first recordings. Buried treasure, these cassettes have just recently been found and polished off. Gene Oliver, John Dugan, Dave Gasparri, the singer (a guy that I knew from a friend’s band that had broken up…Jerry) and I also did a live-in-the-studio hyped-to-the-max run-through right before leaving for our first and, sadly only gig. I must say…I was better than I thought I was…this stuff is well played, well written, and has STYLE.
