Before Thee Fourgiven, The Unclaimed, and the Excessories, guitar player Rich Coffee played in the legendary Bloomington, Indiana band the Gizmos. Formed in 1975, the Gizmos came from that early punk school, looking more like acid dealing BÖC fans than the stereotypical Ramones/Sex Pistols punkers to follow.
Musically, there are some similarities to Boston bands like DMZ and the Real Kids — but even less polished. Love it or hate it, it's well worth checking out.
