First off, it was Diddy-wah-Diddy.

Second, who the hell is Fred Wilson?

The fourth member of the band was yours truly - Andy Bahn

Most of the inspiration for this band comes from Steve Mann. He wrote some fabulous songs, such as Jamaica, Joker, Las Vegas and So Long. I have one recording and it is still pretty good after nineteen years. The lead guitar player tended to make his share of blunders, yet stumbled through the songs somehow. Paul Erickson Drummed and Thumpy Paul Sanders played bass. This band had some potential, but it was never going to sound like Hammerhead. I don't know exactly what it sounded like, but it was very original. Lots of changes in Steve's songs and despite the Attention Deficit disorder of the lead guitar playing, the guitar licks were quite creative as well.



There was a show playing for some fraternity at NDSU. I have no idea how we landed that one. But, since we thought we were worth at least some free beer, and yet were required to buy glasses, we decided it was fair to sneak into their kitchen and steal a 25 lb roll of sausage. And, of course, there was the infamous night in the summer of 1988 at Kirby's. It was hot and we had all stripped down to our boxers. I was concentrating on my leads when I looked up and saw Steve Mann buck naked with his hairy ass facing me and standing at the end of the stage facing the audience. Kirby's son pulled the plug and threw us out telling us we would never play Kirby's again. A couple of name changes later and Floored was on Kirby's stage (we got the plugged pulled as well, but not for being naked and rather for being too F$cking loud. (Andy Bahn)
