Biography

West Lafeyette (1996 – 1999)

There are 2 bands that have used the name Dow Jones and Industrials.

1. A West Lafeyette, Indiana punk band from the late 1970s and early 1980s.
2. A third wave ska band from Saugus, Massachusetts formed in 1996 and disbanded in 1999.

1. Dow Jones and the Industrials were a band from West Lafeyette, Indiana from the late 1970’s until about 1981. During this time, they released a split LP with Gizmos, entitled “Hoosier Hysteria”, and a self-titled 7” EP. A Track of theirs, “Ladies With Appliances”, was also featured on the “Red Snerts” compilation.

Originally, the band consisted of Greg Horn on guitar and vocals, Chris Clark on bass and vocals, Tim North on drums, and Brad Garton (otherwise known as “Mr. Science”) on keyboards. The use of a keyboard, and the band’s flirtation with sounds, meant that Dow Jones and the Industrials hinted towards the sound of bands that would follow them.

In 1980, they released two records. Firstly, the split LP “Hoosier Hysteria”. This was released on Gulcher Records, and also featured the Gizmos. Secondly, they released a self-titled 7” EP on Hardly Music Records.

In 1981, the band’s track “Ladies With Appliances” was featured on the Red Snerts compilation released by Gulcher Records. By this time, Chris Clark had left, to be replaced by Jenny Sweeny on bass. Brad Garton had also left the group. He appeared as “Mr. Science” on the compilation, contributing a track entitled “Mr. Science”.
