    Good find! I think they had a reunion this past year but sadly, all the great LI bars (OBI, Hammerhedz, My Father's Place, Speaks, etc.) are now gone. HH

    The first time I saw them was at the Morris County Community College in NewJersey. At least I think it was called the Morris CC. That was way back in 1977, when we still wrote in Sanskrit.

    They put on a hell of a show then, and I probably saw them at least another 50 times, mostly at The Place, in Dover, NJ. They had a reunion show at The Chance, in Poughkeepsie in '89 or '90, that was great. The lead guitarist, John Gatto, is as good as anyone I have ever heard. Pepi, the lead singer, still does shows with his son. I have seen them a couple of times. Very good, but not quite the same.
