Background:

Mid-1990s pop rockers Bruce Joyner & the Tinglers featured singer Joyner (Sensational Big M.R. and His All-Bitchin' All-Stud All-Stars, the Unknowns) alongside Joel Kmak (Farmers, Penetrators), Chris Sullivan (Sensational Big M.R. and His All-Bitchin' All-Stud All-Stars, Penetrators, Farmers) and Chris Davies (Penetrators, Shards). Among their songs was a pop ditty called "Really Comin' Down With Something," which included David Fleminger on piano.

An album was recorded with a limited release. "We cut it in Hollywood at the Control Room and it came out on the New Rose label out of Paris," remembers Sullivan. "Did ok in Europe! Didn't work U.S. radio."
