Miché and the Anglos - "One of Those Things"
If you were stuck in little old Geneseo, NY in 1985 without a driver's license, one of the few very cool things you might be able to put on your social calendar was being able to see a Miché and the Anglos show. Heck, my first real date (with that cool punkish girl that I met at all-county orchestra) was at a show at the SUNY Geneseo student union ballroom. The band consisted of Miché Fambro (vocals & guitar), Fred Mentner (guitar), Dave Brick (keyboards), Craig Moffitt (bass & sax) and James Conner (drums). They played all over the Rochester and upstate area from at about 1979 through 1988. They released a self-titled EP in 1985, and a full LP (video clip available here) around 1987. (The mp3 of 'One of Those Things' comes from the EP.) Miché also worked part-time at world-famous Buzzo Music in Geneseo, corrupting the youth with his recommendations of weird LPs by Mick Karn, and these gloomy bands on some label called 4AD. In the late 80s, Miché ran a small label called SLIDD records, that released solid recordings by 'The Paper Train', '3 Boxes', and a number of other upstate acts. He is still recording, releasing under the SLIDD label, and lives in Ithaca, NY. Rolling Stone gave his solo release, 'The Chapel Session', a glowing review in 1998.
