The Audience was a short element of the ‘beach punk’ scene of Huntington Seaside, California, USA, in the first 80s. Featuring Jim ‘Garbage’ Decker (vocals), Jay Decker (bass), Jim Kaa (electric guitar, vocals), Tracy Porterfield (vocals) and Barry ‘Cuda’ Miranda (drums), these were nearly completely divorced in the prevailing hardcore punk ethos. Dressed up in dayglo beachwear, and making use of their very own edition of communal dance (it is recommended that Decker created the ‘slam dance’), the Audience specific in trashy browse punk, comparable to a much less qualified Agent Orange. Their debut record, A World Aside, didn’t build on the early impact, nevertheless, and the Audience had been quickly overtaken by lots of the rings that they had helped impact. When Cuda departed, Dennis Walsh (aka Dennis Racquet) joined in the Flyboys. The Audience broke up quickly afterwards, departing Decker and Porterfield’s ambition to become ‘the Frankie and Annette from the 80s’ unrealized. Different ex-members continued to become listed on Sextet, prior to the Deckers, Kaa and Walsh reunited in 1987 to record another Group album, Big Seafood Stories. They will have continuing to balance Group work with additional tasks, although Jay Decker announced he was departing once and for all in 1997.
