The glorious return of Grandcracker Vance and the Furious MacDads

Back in High School, Rick, Vance, Jones, Martin, and Yrrep Nosemaj decided to form an Aerosmith Cover band named Grandcracker Vance and the Furious MacDads. They smoked a whole jar of oregano and jammed. Rick busted out his Radio Shack tape recorder and captured this amazing rendition of "Walk This Way" for posterity. The song went to number one at KEHS, Eldorado High School's radio station.

Here at last is the demo video we recorded for the then new MTV

Hoppy Easter from Moonpie.

Get it? HOPpy Easter? Because the Easter Bunny prefers the extra hops flavor in an IPA. Also funny because at the time, Vance was a HOP-head  -- that is, he was Hooked On Phonics. In fact, I think that he may have kidnapped this kid in order to pay for his ten word-a-day habit. You can see the desperation in his eyes.
Happy Easter! Get Scared!
(l-r) Me and some kid and Vance, ca. 1975
