Saturdays Roc! Here is something from the vault.
It all started in a local club in Pine Bluff Arkansas where Mojo and Spider played in their first group together, “Zodiac”, in the mid 70s. Spider played lead guitar, and Mojo held the brass section. Sam “Spider” Rice was also the music director for a vocal group called “La Pinch” which included vocalist Gary Pinchom (Pinch). As the 80s approached La Pinch was looking for a new sound. After relocating to the East Coast “The Pinch” was born. FYI – ‘Shot Out’ was a street term they used to describe someone with an excessive drug habit. They had some money stashed away from a Zodiac gig, from earlier years, and picked up a Prophet 5 and Roland drum machine with that “new sound” in mind. In 1981, Shot Out was recorded and mastered at the legendary Power Station studios in NYC. This 7″ has been begging to be collected and played ever since! Enjoy.
