Lover's Vengeance

Lover's Vengeance was my last band. It was a spin-off of Brass Monkey w/o bassist Greg Farson. Brass Monkey was a spin-off of Later when we lost lead guitarist Wayne Addleman. In the tradition of the previous groups, we specialized in jazz-influenced rock. We played six gigs between November 4, 1972 (Lambda Chi Alpha triad) and March 2, 1973 (Elk's Club ROTC formal). Chris Taylor and I dreamed up the name, which represented the way in which we sublimated our frustrations from failed relationships into our music.
