THIS POST IS FOR MARK, D-DAY WAS A New Wave band from Austin, Texas, regionally popular in the early 80’s.De Lewellen - vocals Stuart Hillyer - guitarDave Fore - drums John Keller - bassGlover Gill - keyboardsWill Fiveash - guitar (replaced Stuart Hillyer)D-Day’s first 45 rpm single “Too Young To Date” was written by David Fore and De Lewellen. It reached as high as #1 on Rodney Bingenheimer’s show on KROQ in Los Angeles. A second single “Right to Know” also got a fair amount of air time on KROQ and on KLBJ in Austin. This led to a record with A&M in 1982 when Glover and Will had joined the band.Note that after the band had been together for a while, Glover Gill joined on keyboards and eventually Will Fiveash replaced Stuart Hillyer on guitar.

Some irate mothers complained to the FCC and the record was banned in California. After a DJ was suspended for playing the record, the 3rd verse was re-recorded to replace "pop my cherry". The altered version was played on the radio but not released to the public.De and John got married and have a Cajun band called ZYDECO RANCHZ. Will is a programmer for Sun. David is a programmer for IBM and plays with The Eggmen. Stuart just finished med school. SOME OF THIS INFO CAME FROM http://www.last.fm/ ,ENJOY!!! . 1. TOO YOUNG TO DATE
Welcome to Shotgun Solution.
I use this Blog to share my passion for records, and underground music. If your not into having your record featured here, or if you just want to contact me, you can do so here.
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records link to see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days..
