Crucial DBC - What's Next

Crucial DBC formed in the early 80s in California and released four cassettes. This is one of them. I know they had another one called "Dread Rock" and I don't know what the other two are called or what years any of them were released.
The band was lead by Norman Jones who teamed up with Dave Wakeling in General Public and later The New Radicals.

A ton of thanks to Michael who contributed this!!

Actually, they formed in Ohio (Rockerstown, aka Bowling Green), and used to play Milton's.

I've seen them there and in California, and they are awesome.

"Universal Melody" was always a favorite, and ""Guatemala"" as well. I still have a glossy of Norm from back in the day.

I am so glad to see a web presence from these guys. Keep on keeping on. We love you. We thank you.

I am the trombone player, an original member of the group. We did indeed form in Ohio in late 84, moving to Cali in late 86. Our first release, made in Ohio, was Bloodsucker. Then in Cali we made, Haunted World, Dread Rock and What's Next. Good music, good times! Thanks for remembering!

To the trombone player: are you guys still together? Are you available for private events? Is there a contact number or website?

I have digitized a copy of Bloodsucker from an original 80s tape if you want it. Great BG band that used to play Howard's Club H!

Hi Gentlemen,

I would LOVE a copy of Bloodsucker, too! Saw the band at Mother's Junction in Kent, Ohio back in the Reagan years and we bought the tape then. I haven't seen it in years. If you have the ability to make CDs, make two for me. Contact me at rzaynor@gmail.com Thanks!
