Gary Herrewig (4 - Gone Conclusions E.P)

I Picked this up a year or so ago fairly cheap. I knew who Gary Herrewig is and the seller had a sound file that caught my ear so I took a chance. I was happy with my purchase to say the least. Hurt You Too is my favorite song here, but they're all catchy. Goin' Back is a Gerry Goffin and Carole King tune made Popular by Dusty Springfield and the Byrds .
  This is a solo effort from Gary Herrewig who was and I believe still is.. the Guitarist for the long time Powerpop outfit; Fairfax Virginia's Artful Dodger. If you would like to read more about them Check These Pages Out. Gary is joined by long time band mates Steve Brigida (Drums) and Peter Bonta (Keyboards).

Self Released 1985

The Question (Both Ep's)

The Question were an La three piece that were around for most of the Eighties, maybe longer? Other than these two Ep's, they had a couple of tracks on the Warfrat Tales Comp in 1983. I found This Facebook Page that suggests they are or were working on a retrospective but I found no evidence of it ever being released. If you want to read more about the band, I found This Excellent Piece over at the great Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World Website.
