Cool website. I found an original copy of Primevil LP in a thrift store a couple of years ago which I didn't expect since I live in the Pacific Northwest. Records can still be found anywhere. Great lp.

In the late 80's I played in Larry Bryant's band. He recorded an album with you in 1976. His albums have been re-released as cd's. I engineered and recorded his second record.

Larry and his wife Linda both passed away in the early 90's while still in their early 50's.

They always had a good word about your work. Please add them to your memorial page.

In trying to find information on a band from my youth I came across this amazing site!
It is such a wealth of information that I was not aware of.
I saw Jack Phelan mentioned (a life long friend) and it brought back memories of seeing him perform with his daughter Susan shortly before his passing...
If anyone can help... I am trying to obtain a copy (either physical or digital) of the Buccaneer release. I saw the show in Indianapolis as well as HAD the album at the time and I am yearning to hear the work again!
Feel free to email me at terrypowerz[at]-remove-yahoo.com
Thank you for keeping the history of possibly the finest musical era of Indy alive!

Primevil Memories
jos229... - Jeff stephenson - 7Sep2007 3:01 PM
Hi, I just located this awesome
site. I remember the guys, the music, the late nights, the great band Primevil. I knew these guys pretty well, I was a roadie with them for a few years in the mid 70's.
My name is listed in the credits simply as Jeff, along with a couple of my good friends that helped also.

We worked for free just to be around such good musicians and to learn as much as I could.

I was with the band at Moe's studio during various sessions when all kinds of erratic events would take place.( Yes there is a fart mixed in on the album as Jay mentioned in his blog.)

I went on to work with Jay at the music store making speaker cabinets that became the Dr. Fong line. I also was involved in some of the thought process and the beginning of the construction of staging for Jay's secret project.

Simply put, we worked hard at touring regionally in the midwest, but Primevil should have been touring nationally.

I was still in school and it was so cool to hear Mike Griffin play Pretty Women on WNAP Radio during shop class and then tell my buddies where the gigs were that weekend.

Greetings to all of the people of the Primevil family. I am very much looking forward to the re-release of "Smokin' Bats At Campton,s". In the meantime I still have (2)copies of the original.

I would like to catch up Jay and anybody else from this era. My e-mail is jos229[at]-remove-sbcglobal

Long Lost Recordings???
specktron... - Jon Dembroski - 14Mar2007 11:22 AM

Jon Dembroski here. I don't know if you remember me. I think I did some recording with you but am not sure. I worked with Jay Wilfong for quite a while, and played in J.D. Redmond's Band, also subbed for John Whittemore at Franklin Place occasionally. That's where I met Jimmy Guilford. I then played with Jimmy at a few other places. Anyways, I have my own studio now and am getting ready to record some new songs with Jimmy. Jimmy said he remembers having done some stuff at 700 west with a group called "Three Way Street". It was for a movie that never happened so I don't know if it was ever released. Group included Mingo Jones (or possibly Jack Phelan), Danny Smith, Errol Grandy, and Jimmy. Produced and paid for by Greg Callahan. Do you still have access to any of that stuff? What we're really after is Errol Grandy's stuff. I have the only known recordings of Errol except for the ones you may have. I am trying to come up with enough material to release something. Any help would be appreciated. Jimmy would also like to talk with you. Thanks,

Jon Dembroski

Jimmy's phone number is still 317-251-1603

Just to say Hi
rasjohns... - Steve Johnson, Bloomington IN - 29Jan2007 11:24 AM
Hi Moe, just ran across your website. I'm a bass player in Bloomington and used to work in Tommy Wills' road bands a lot with your brother John in the '80s. I saw John a while back at Bill Overman's 80th birthday party where we both performed, but he cut out after the first set and I lost him. He used to talk about you all the time when we were on the road. One of my fondest memories was a gig we played in Quincy, Illinois and we had a night off. It was raining all day and we were sitting around the motel watching ESPN2 where these guys were racing these giant three wheeled ATVs which have since been outlawed because so many guys got killed. (But I digress.) John's sitting in his bathrobe at about 2 p.m. smoking cigarettes and drinking beer (totally decadent) and looks up and sez, "Steve, do you realize we're watching grown men ride tricycles in the mud in the name of SPORT!?!" Perfect moment and a quote for the ages.

It got so boring there that Bill Witherington (trombone) came in with a magic marker and started drawing more birds on the paintings in the room 'til soon they looked like the Alfred Hitchcok movie (but I digress once more).

Anyway, good to see your site and maybe we'll run across each other sometime.

An enquiry
raanan78... - Ra'anan Chelled, Israel - 16Jan2007 8:04 AM
Hello dear people of 700 west,

My name is Ra'anan Chelled and I'm a writer from Israel. I am currently in the process of writing a book called "Demons, Fairies & Wailing Guitars" - a book documenting the best 100 obscured rock bands from the years 68-75. I am happy to report that the legendary Zerfas have been chosen to be one of those 100 bands thanks to their immaculate album.
The book is schedueled for a local publishing only (atleast in the meantime) and will be published privately in small quantity. I am doing this out of love for the music and for the opportunity to expose readers to great bands they had no idea existed prior to that.

I have a small request from you: I would like to use the Zerfas album cover to illustrate my book (There will be a few full color pages presenting the albums cover art). I need your permission to do that since you hold the rights for that album.

Bests wishes,
Ra'anan Chelled

Ist session at 700 West
gtrgeoff... - Geoff W. - Oakland CA - 16Feb2006 5:28 PM
My first recording session was 1978, for Charlie Crosby's single. Wow,almost 30 years ago. I remember Mo's glaring at me as I layed down a lousy guitar solo - he was right! Charlie & I came back a week later & re-cut. Best of luck - wonder what happened to Chalie?
