Any PA members remember and dig The Bears (Adrian Belew guitar, vocal; Rob Fetters guitar, vocal; Bob Nyswonger bass; and Chris Arduser drums)? Their debut album released in 1987 remains one of my favorite discs of all time. I was lucky enough to see them in concert several times and the energy they displayed onstage filtered into the audience. Everyone was having a blast. I have never seen any band having so much fun. Their other three releases are decent but dont match the debut. If you never saw them live the DVD Live at Club Cafe captures that energy. Also, Fetters, Nyswonger, and Arduser were in the band Psychodots. They also had some cool tunes.

I like em. Quite a talented band. I like how they share the songwriting and singing - Belew is probably the guy that will draw people in, but hes not the star of the show, they all are.
I saw a concert on the Car Caught Fire tour. Very tight.

I have heard of them. They were one of the post 80's KC related bands/projects. Another one was Sunday all over the world. You also had Bruford's earthworks.
