Jack Oblivian & the Tennessee Tearjerkers

After the Oblivians disbanded and after pursuing a brief solo career, Jack Yarber teamed up with Scott Bomar to form the Tearjearkers. As Bomar became more and more involved with film scoring, Yarber began to take a more active role in the band, ultimately taking over as lead songwriter after Bomar's departure. With Yarber in control of the group, the band was rechristened the Tennessee Tearjerkers.

Loveslug were formed in 1987 by Tony Leeuwenburgh, who, in the first part of the '80s, made a name for himself with punk band the Nitwitz and hardcore band B.G.K. Frank Sloos was a former member of party punk band Outrageous, and Mike de Veer used to play in hardcore band Funeral Oration and '60s garage band Plainfield. For Brenzev, Loveslug is his first band. Loveslug were influenced by the likes of Radio Birdman, the Stooges, Ramones, Ted Nugent and MC5. They are considered a strong influence on the european punk/rock n' roll scene which emerged in the mid-90's and later. In 1994, Loveslug came to an unfortunate end due to De Veer's condition of diabetes. Sloos later joined the Kliek and the Treble Spankers, while Leeuwenburgh reformed the Nitwitz.

King Sound Quartet

Mick Collins – vocals, guitar
Tim Kerr – guitar
Alex Cuervo – bass
Stephanie Friedman – drums

Founded in 1996, the King Sound Quartet began as four very different personalities coming together to make music with soul. Not wanting to limit themselves to one particular niche, the KSQ drew on 60’s soul, R&B, garage rock, hardcore punk, and free-jazz (see their 20-minute version of Sun Ra’s "Space Is The Place"). They are recognized as a super group of underground no-counts. Under the guidance of Young Lion Conspirator Tim Kerr (formerly of the Big Boys, POISON 13!!, and currently of the Lord High Fixers), the band cranked out some incredibly inspired music that resulted in their vinyl-only LP on In The Red and an excellent single on Estrus. After the initial recording sessions, everybody went back to his or her usual bands and day jobs - no live shows were ever performed. In the year 2000 a second album was planned with Matt Verta-Ray (Speedball Baby) joining the fold as an additional guitarist. This session failed due to differences too vast to list here, and, unfortunately, served as the final nail (and all the dirt) on the KSQ coffin.

The Zyklon Bees - Seven Mean Runs (2005)

The Zyklon Bees are actually Brimstone Howl before they changed their name due to the controversy it attracted. Seven Mean Runs is their only release under the Zyklon Bees name, and it was also re-released later under the name Brimstone Howl.

Tex and the Horseheads

Usually lumped in the same stylistic pen as bands like the Gun Club, Tex and the Horseheads were a Los Angeles-based cowpunk band fronted by the proto-Courtney Love-esque singer Texacala Jones. Getting their start amidst the burgeoning paisley scene of L.A. in the early '80s, Tex and the Horseheads would only record two studio full-lengths and one live record before calling it a day prior to the end of the decade. Their first, a self-titled affair released on Enigma in 1984, was followed by the John Doe (of X and the Knitters fame) produced Life's so Cool in 1985. Tot Ziens, a live document released by Enigma Holland in 1985 showed the band in rather ranting, albeit poorly recorded, form, and that was to be the end of their output. Jones and bassist Mike Martt would regroup a few more times for reunion shows, and Jones appearing with other bands and getting small parts in independent films, but for all intents and purposes, Tex and the Horseheads' career was as short as most of the rather self-destructive bands which spawned from the scene they came up in.
