Mommy- Sacto Active Rock, Sacramento Cable 1993 Go Dog Go Magnolia Thunderfinger

Mommy was Skid Jones & Paul Niklewicz’ band after Go Dog Go, and before Skid started Magnolia Thunderfinger. You MUST watch the interview after the performance. Skid is sitting on a throne with the guys surrounding him. When Lizz asks a question, he sits there and someone offstage (PAUL) answers for him! It is bizarre. Mommy was: G.B.- Guitar, Vocals; Jones- Guitar, volcals; Timm Freeman- Drums; Pawelek Stansilaw Niklewicz- Bass.

Here’s Thornucopia- a Davis band that played in the late ’80s/early ’90s around the area. If my memory serves me correctly, I think they opened the Nirvana Cattle Club show. Johanna later married Guy Kyser from Thin White Rope. They had a band called The Mummydogs together. Thornucopia were: Jed Brewer- Guitar. Nick Frederick- Bass. Johanna Galos- Vocals. Brian Gattridge-Drums. Justin Zimmerman- Guitar. Please tag them if you think they are interested in seeing this. Please subscribe to my youtube channel if you’d like notifications of new posts.

Moist- Sacto Active Rock Community Cable Show- Episode #26 1993 The Skirts

Thanks to a kind benefactor, we now have transfers of about 30 “Sacto Active Rock” episodes straight from the VHS masters that were taped off of cable. I will post these as time allows. Here’s a band that I wish I had seen, but was never able to. Moist was Sunita, Karen and Wendy’s band prior to The Skirts. In fact, you can hear some early Skirts songs/riffs in some of their catalog! SO Awesome to be able to see them.
