Odessa Steps Sequence
Odessa Steps Sequence (OSS) was comprised of myself, Tim Finefrock and several Franklin & Marshall College students: Paul Barros, Joshua Roberts and Bob Yocum. Josh wrote most of the songs. I think we were aiming at something along the lines of shockabilly, with themes ranging from domestic murderers to child-molester clowns to medical oddities. During one of our several public performances in Lancaster, PA in 1982, the audience started throwing bottles at us and the manager of the club turned off the power to the stage! To this day, area drummer Tommy Leanza says it was the most amazing concert he's ever seen. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?) I do not currently have access to the original recording -- hopefully I'll have it soon.
