In case you haven't figured it out by now my main focus for the time being on my blog will be sharing information on bands from my hometown of Seattle, Washington. The music I'm posting was not featured on the "Wheedles Groove" comp. I did with Light In The Attic records. Some of these tunes are hard to find even locally. They have long been over looked year after year and have simply vanished into oblivion. If you have any local music or information about bands don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always searching for records and love to learn and discover new stuff. The group I'm posting today was called Epicentre. The band was formed in 1974 and called it quits in 87'. Members consisted of Stacy Christenson, Dave Raynor, Bernadette Bascom, Rick Johnson, and Ron Foos as pictured above. While very popular and performing around town regularly I only know of one track they released on vinyl called "Get Off The Phone". They entered a local radio station contest in a battle of the bands type contest and were the only entry in the Soul category. Their prize was getting the song released on a vinyl record. You can listen to or download this great slice of modern soul below. Enjoy!
