was a basic lean rock'n'roll trio from Chicago. Roots - but not retro. Pure, but not purist. A grand tradition of not following tradition.
Steve Gerlach was the lead guitarist and singer, best known for heading the Phantom Helmsmen and Cane Corso, lead guitarist for The Bad Examples in addition to being tour-guitarist-for-hire for artists as diverse as Tommy Keene and Garrison Starr. Bass player L.T. Swisher comes from the Amarillo Kings and drummer John Carpender played with Gerlach in the Phantom Helmsmen. Ten rock'n'roll songs with vocals including covers of The Kinks' "Got My Feet On The Ground" and Ray Charles' "Leave My Woman Alone."
Getting Away With Murder was the sole album for this combo with Gerlach's hi-test playing showcased on every fast-moving cut. There's a lot of history in his playing but this is no scholarly sound- a distinctive voice adding to the Gibson & Strat vocabulary. Songs from the album hwere used in the films "The Last Road" and "Puddle Cruiser" and continue to get airplay wherever fine rock'n'roll is broadcast.
