Guitarists Steve Rockey, Alan Webber or bassist Rod McMahon. Lead singer “Frantic”, a/k/a William Kuchon, took care of the craziness. music, fast and rockin’, at times with nontraditional guitar interactions of feedback/wah wah/distortion mixed with driving bass runs and an atomic bomb relentless backbeat. They broke up in 1977.

    The Punks formed in the early 70s in Detroit. Youre thinking of some newer band that probably sucks.

    This band is from Olympia Washington and is signed to Kill Rock Stars records, not form detroit! The Band Bio is all wrong.
