CRASH-N-BURN - Self-Titled (1988)

CRASH-N-BURN was one of my favorite bands of this era, and I wouldn't know how to describe them completely, but let's try Funky Punky Chunky Rock. They covered a lot of bases. The band members were John Sanders on keyboards and guitar, Amy Sanders on bass, Dean Menta on another guitar, and Parry Wolf on the drums.
Here's a song from the first self-titled tape John sent me! Turn it up!
 CRASH-N-BURN - "The Big Business"

John and I wrote back and forth a few times, and this is a flyer for a "One Dead Cow Show and Rodeo" gig that he wrote me a letter on. I've tried to find some current information on the band or it's members, because I just assumed they'd be pretty famous by now, but instead, I can't find anything, so I guess they must have really just Crashed N' Burned!

 Anyway, I liked CRASH-N-BURN so much that I asked them to give me something for my "Refried Dreams" compilation tape, which they kindly obliged, and I got this extra cool sticker too. Check it out, it's another great song called "Last Night Stand."

  1. Hi Eegah, if that is your real name. Yeah, CnB did crashnburn eventually. Three of us went on to do a funk group called New Power Soul, then two of us went on and did a acid jazz group called Memphis Mystics. I finally moved back to Memphis where I do a soul jazz group called Zazerac. Thanks so much for the props. - John
