Purveyors of scruffy power pop from NEW YORK, Accelerators formed around vocalist Gerald Duncan and drummer Doug Whelchel, adding guitarist Brad Grain and bassist Mike Johns good after the reality. The group’s 1983 debut, Keep My Center, was made by Don Dixon (who caused R.E.M. and Let’s Energetic) and highlighted electric guitar by Mitch Easter; while much less lively than R.E.M.’s modern materials, Accelerators’ mature make of rock and roll & roll demonstrated them in great form. Shifting to Profile for the follow-up four years following the reality, the music group released a self-titled record, once again with Dixon on-board, but also for only two slashes. Another four-year lack preceded 1991’s Desire Train, and it had been the band’s last.
