Get Smart! Started playing together while attending the University of Kansas in Lawrence. They honed their Mid-west version of post-punk by playing locally and recording a couple of EP's. They moved to Chicago and became mainstays on the club scene. They released two albums, "Action Reaction"(Fever, 1984) and "Swimming With Sharks" (Restless,1986 ).

Frank Loose - Drums and vocals
Lisa Wertman - Bass guitar and vocals. Went on to play in Dolly Varden, The Nora O'Connor Band and The Honeybees.
