A Bay Area supergroup if their ever was one, THE PATTERN seemed like they were primed for success, but a slew of singles and a seemingly straight-to-the-dollar bin full length and they were gone. Poof. Lucky for you though, young rocker, because the wise amongst us know that the dollar bin is sometimes where you find the gold. Motor City proto punk and new millennium garage rock clashed headfirst into all these young dudes who knew just how to meld their collective experiences into a sound with a serious swagger. Members of THE POTATOMEN, TALK IS POISON, YAPHEY KOTTO, THE MOONEY SUZUKI, PEECHEES, BLACK FORK and countless others in case that helps seal the deal, this is a band that coulda been huge.
