hostages, unemployment and
“ I hate Everything Of The Day In Late 70’s” with Ron Schlund joining In on drums, the group forged their own style of experimental blues with electronics...filled with depression, protest, pain, blues and the punk attitude of "not selling out" into a time when we were a square peg in a round hole as we not a Punk Band. Closer would be Pre Wave Experimental Blues with Electronics Band
Myk and John both being huge blues fans, the combination of Myk's fueled blues hollow moan vocal style and Johns guitar style and backing vocals blending Ron's steady beats, group vocals and cowboy hat made a powerful mixture of music like none other.
*In 1980, the Desendants recorded and distributed a single on their own DIY label A-O-M records "Unnational Anthem” bw "Facelift". Desendants were; Myk Cole - Lyrics, Vocals, John Pichler - Guitar, Bass, Ron Schlund, Drums.
