Background:

Puppies featured keyboardist Dane Conover, guitarist James Krieger, and bassist Nino Del Pesco. Krieger and Del Pesco later joined with Country Dick Montana for a band called the Snuggle Bunnies.

In 1981, Conover got a Kim Fowley-inspired record deal with MCA and released one album as Trees in 1982 on MCA Records, Sleep Convention, produced by Earle Mankey.

It was a critical success but a commercial failure, a fact that has been blamed on mismanagement by the label. Conover ended Trees shortly after and began making music with his wife, moving to Northern California. Conover also wrote a popular Beat Farmers song called “Happy Boy,” popularized by the late Country Dick Montana.

As of 2013, Del Pesco was still composing songs as well as writing scripts and plays.
