Among the earliest from the Midwest’s hardcore rings, Lansing, MI’s the Repair played ferocious music in a recklessly fast swiftness, literally burning up through the arc of the band from delivery to crash in only 22 months. Comprising guitarist Craig Calvert, vocalist Steve Miller, drummer Jeff Wellman, and bassist Mike Achtenberg, the Repair conceptually started after Steve and Mike captured sets with the Stranglers as well as the Ramones within a couple weeks of each various other at Dooley’s in Lansing. The real band officially produced in 1980 using the entrance of Calvert and Wellman. The Fix’s furious displays produced them favorites in the D.We.Con. hardcore circuit, plus they caught the interest of Touch and Go’s Tesco Vee, who released a Repair 7″ early in 1981, Vengeance/In This City, another 7″, Jan’s Areas, by the end of the entire year. The violently fast hurricane that was the Repair finally performed itself out, nevertheless, in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA on New Year’s Time 1982, when the music group decided to contact it quits. On the Rate of Twisted Idea…, a full-length Compact disc composed of the band’s singles, demos, and a ample group of live monitors (rendering it essentially the comprehensive recorded legacy from the Repair), was released in 2006 by Contact and Go Information.
