Although their name made them a short-lived entity, punky, psych-influenced garage band the Salvation Army took the majority of their stylistic and musical cues from Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets anthology. Shaped in March 1981 by South Bay, CA teen Michael Quercio, the Salvation Military quickly released an individual for the Minutemen’s New Alliance label, obtained a fresh guitarist (Greggory Louis Gutierrez), and documented a batch of brand-new songs. Following this demonstration was performed on Rodney Bingenheimer’s massively important Rodney for the ROQ radio present, Lisa Fancher agreed upon the Salvation Military to her Frontier Information and released the trio’s self-titled debut in-may 1982. The philanthropic firm, however, got umbrage, as well as the Salvation Military politely transformed their name towards the meaningless but suitably psychedelic the Three O’Clock, changed drummer Troy Howell with ex-Quick drummer Danny Benair, added keyboardist Michael Mariano, and changed themselves in to the leading lighting from the paisley underground, a expression created by Quercio that’s dogged him since. Fancher reissued the Salvation Military album beneath the smart name Befour Three O’Clock following the group misguidedly still left Frontier for IRS, and in 1992 gathered the full record, that pivotal five-song demonstration, and all songs recorded through the classes for the brand new Alliance solitary for a thorough assortment of every Salvation Military studio recording.
