Middle Spunk Creek Boys (1981--)

I joined the Middle Spunk Creek Boys in 1981. That band is still thriving!
For more information than you can stand about them, please visit The Middle Spunk Creek Boys web site.


Buckacre Bluegrass Show (1975 - 1982)

BUCKACRE was a hell of an exciting and entertaining band. Alas, we never recorded.

After we found out about the "Buckacre" country-rock band that recorded with MCA records, we started referring to ourselves as "Buckacre Bluegrass Show."

Basement (1972???)

All of our records were going to be Big Cellars.  Jim Putnam, Bruce Jaeger, Gus Fontaine, Bill Knoble. I'd post the tape itself except (1) The sound of the ancient cassette tape is muddy muddy woof-woof, and... (B) You can still hear enough to make all of us really embarrassed!   Oh, hell--this little fragment ought to scar you for life!  Kemp Owyne
