I left for college in the fall of 1978. Scott Fletcher took over on vocals and they became Safety Patrol, with a guy named Doug Karger on drums. They were really very good and even played CBGBs. At Hampshire College I played drums in a band called Alpo, which was essentially a supergroup of personalities with very little musical skill, featuring Eric Miller, Ken Feinstein, Claudia Keoze, G. Murray Thomas, Tom Hays and I. We had one song called Women Suck Because They Don't and we lasted one rehearsel. We evolved into MX and the Cruise Missiles which featured Tom, Murray and I. While Tom could really play the guiter Murray just banged on the keyboards as he moaned and groaned the lyrics. We had songs such as Bad Acid Rock (which was a classic written by Murray) and Used To Go To Hampshire which Murray completely improvised. The rest of the Tapeworm crew wound up migrating to the Bay Area in California where Jan lived with her family in El Cerrito. They all lived in a house in Emeryville together. I even lived there with them for a couple of months. Scott had an arty band called Sinequan (named after an anti-depressant he had been on) with Kathy and Jamie. Tom and Brian started playing as a duo called Fang. After touring the country, they went their separate ways with Brian heading back to Texas to form Glass Eye with Kathy and Scott Marcus (the second drummer from Safety Patrol) and Tom staying in Berkeley. Glass Eye were around for years and put out many excellent records. Tom turned Fang into a seminal Berkeley hardcore band (they had songs covered by such notables as Metallica, Nirvana, and Green Day) and Tom's record label Boner Records (named after Bonar Street, the street he lived on) was very successful and influential. All the early Melvins records were on Boner and Tom even played bass with them for a while. When I last saw Tom in 1993 he had an excellent band called Star Pimp which had Jamie from Sinequan on drums.
Somehow, because of the sheer energy we captured on vinyl and the incredible obscurity of it all the Tapeworm single has become one of the most sought after collectible records in the world. I don't know about Brian or Tom, but I was a major nerd in High School.
