|They are STILL kicking ass!!|
They were simply the best local band of the day in my eyes. They made that night of partying an unforgettable experience! Even the nights when the fucking FDNY would shut the club down while they were still playing
for over crowding... LoL

You can see Paul and his friends listed as the

Too cool right!
from every TT Quick fan out here...
thanx for sharing!!
Nothing but amazing memories!!
Here's some behind-the-scenes info
about the set list and album by Paul Kaufmann.
In his own words...
"My brother and I collected set lists from the TT gigs and this night was no different. And here comes Story #1.
You see the horizontal lines between the various songs
and if you look a your LIVE CD you will see that this follows
the lineup on the CD perfectly EXCEPT:
What TT live recording would be without Hard as Rock?
I mean, what the fuck, of course they would play Hard as Rock on the CD
but if you look at your song list, it is not to be,
BUT THEY PLAYED IT THAT NIGHT,
the set list proves it.
What went wrong?
Well, we sat the guys down before we got the sound board fired up
and reminded them that the songs had to be played in three song sets,
THAT'S WHY THE HORIZONTAL LINES on the set list.
This was because each tape reel can only fit about 3 songs max
on it since it is being advanced so fast for killer sound quality.
Put your CD on and crank it up on Eye of the Storm
and play it to the very end. You will hear the song end and then
the unmistakable sound of Hard As Rock drum intro
firing off at E-Rock's drum kit and then the song fades completely out.
Why no Hard as Rock?
Because they didn't take a break after the Intro
and the first two songs so we could change the tape.
Nope, they charged full steam into Hard as Rock and well,
they played it but no tape, no recording.
We changed the tape and were ready to pick it back up at
Asleep at the Wheel which THANKFULLY we got on tape.
So, Story #2 was my doing.
You see, I LOVE KICKIN' ASS, its a fucking awesome tune but NOWHERE
is there a recording of the song so I was determined to get that down on CD somehow so months before this gig when we were setting everything up,
so the idea of putting it on the live album was put forth and Mark made it happen, VERY COOL!
Man I love the lyrics, that song is just totally TT and I am uber psyched
that we got that down for all to crank! I was told later that the band simply gave the producer what he wanted and that was way cool of TT to lay down that track for us, especially as the intro song."
((( I have to ask Paul why "Throat" isn't on the set list?
Maybe it was always just a given?? )))

Dethslaker / Dreamer
Received a great email
from one of the founding members...
bass player David schwab
and wanted to share the info with you guys!
I just found your blog and was looking though all the newspaper listings and photos. Great stuff!
I was one of the founding members of Dreamer, but left the band (around 1978?) before they got more well known on the scene.
The band was originally called Dethslaker. We started out as a progressive rock band, playing Genesis, Yes, ELP, Gentle Giant, and so on.
The original members included Nic Luciano on guitar, who would later play with the Game and Phantoms Opera. You can also see his name on a lot of the artwork that was in the Aquarian, and he did the logos for Phantoms Opera, White Tiger, and others. Later on he was in the NJ cover band Lost in Place, which are still playing. I played bass with them for about 5 or 6 years.
The original singer in Dreamer was a guy by the name of Barry White. He moved up to Boston and became Barrence Whitfield (and the Savages). He was replaced by Anthony Racioppi, who would later sing with King Flux. Anthony was still playing in Dreamer fairly recently. I see their Facebook page is gone so…
The original keyboard player, who also played in the recent version of Dreamer, was Charlie Stoddard, of Uncle Floyd fame. At one point I quit the band, and they had another bassist (Bill Kreisel), who died in a car crash after a gig! So they asked me to rejoin.
I was the bass player, and Stephen Collins was the original drummer. Steve and I were childhood friends. Steve was unceremoniously kicked out of the band when we wanted a heavier sound, and was replaced by one of our roadies, Nick Ferro.
Around ’78 or so Nick and I wanted to play more punk/new wave type stuff, and we quit the band and formed the band the Jetsonz around 1979. We played around the NJ/NYC area, especially places like the Dirt club. We also opened for for acts like Billy Idol (at the Fast Lane), The Waitresses, Ebn Ozn, Violent Femms, and others.
About 10 years ago I joined a band with Nic Luciano and Charlie Stoddard called “Ironic Twist.” It didn’t last long enough for us to play any gigs!
