Philly band started in 1983 by Dan McKay on guitar, bass & synth and Paul Della Pelle (Ruin, Helios Creed, Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine, Nik Turner ) on drums, percussion & vocals as an experimental music performance project. Bassist Clennie “Pop” Lewis was added shortly after then they released this 7″ in 1984. Multi-instrumentalist Doug Hilsinger (Bomb, Gift Horse) on guitar, synth, drums & vocals was added to the group in 1986 to round out the sound and to provide a more dynamic live stage show.
Check out their Reverbnation page, that I stole the band info above from.
WKDU free band bash from October 1985. There were a lot of bands at this show – most of the Video is of Homo Picnic and 5 Story Fall but there is also some of Oblivion, M Fakter, and Ambush Bugs. Apparently more bands where going to play (Dead Milkmen plus others) but the company doing the sound and/or Drexel security pulled the plug. At the end of the 2nd Homo Picnic clip there is a short interview with them. I just realized I forgot to try and figure out the song titles (if anyone knows them please add them in a comment) Also if anyone has the 5 Story Fall demo please let me know it would be great to put those up.
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...Email Me @
