Background:

“Anyone who had the opportunity to see the Unknowns play had an unforgettable experience,” says San Diego musician and historian Ray Brandes on the cheunderground website. “Crisp, staccato drumming and the dripping-wet reverberation of Mosrite guitars through Fender amplifiers was punctuated by the yips and howls of the legendary melodramatic lead singer, Bruce Joyner, who sang from a chair or aided by a cane, looking every bit like a down-home Barnabas Collins in search of fresh blood.”

The band was scheduled to perform a reunion gig at the Casbah in January, 2010, but a scheduling conflict scuttled the show. The first time the definitive lineup played San Diego in three decades finally happened September 3, 2011, at the Casbah.
