The band, which formed in Lyndhurst, New Jersey in 1983, had a devoted cult-following, yet never attained the popularity contemporaries such as R.E.M. achieved.
Sadly, their singer Joe Marques, who exuded the slithering sexuality of Jim Morrison, and later, Michael Hutchense, died in 2003.
I've never tried pedaling in bed before. It looks rather, relaxing.
If you want to know, "how did they do that?," click here. What do you think is the most innovative music video of all time?

Sam Roberts is one of those types. Now on his third album Love at the End of the World, he bears the torch for classic rock and solid songwriting and wants young people to not get their impression of what's good from American Idol. Not that he's completly sounding like Clint Eastwood in Grand Torino....
...think of it as kind of like The Boss schooling the kids on the field for his halftime show appearance last night.
I guess we can all put down our chicken fingers and learn! Check out Sam Roberts' video for "Them Kids," and join me on New Music/Ticket Tuesday tomorrow morning....I'll spin you my favorite track on the new album, "Lions of the Kalahari."
The Newark, Delaware-based jam band visited WTMD (http://www.wtmd.org) for a recent appearance on Baltimore Unsigned, performing the track which originally appeared on the band's debut album "Stumbling Through Blydepoort Canyon."
Mad-Sweet Pangs released the follow-up, "Witness & Wait," in 2008.
