Portland's Busiest Defunct Band.

Yeah I know.. This will be our second show this year so its not like we are playing "farewell shows" every month..

Huh?
Yeah not sure why they are playing the east end.. Its the only show they have booked or so their Facebook says..Not sure how good its gonna be though. It looks like they are down to one "standell".. A few years they were playing with 3 of the 4.. So we will see..

I stand corrected. I guess 3 of the 4 of this line up played with them in the 60's.. Not sure on what records though if any..
The Standells Facebook
" Paul Downing is one of the best guitarists around, and a great vocalist as well. John Fleck is also a terrific bassist and songwriter. Both were part of the 60's Standells"

Poking around the internets I found that:
- John Fleck was pictured on the "Try Me" LP (although no mention of him playing on any of the album)
- Paul Downing was a member of the band when Larry tried to reform them in 1970, without any of the other original guys.
- and Greg Burnham is a drum teacher. He appears to have no connection to the band until they listed him on their Facebook page.

Anyone know what the cover for the show is?

So the type-o in the paper (standelles?) really was just a type-o? That's good news.
