    Testicular Momentum (1987-1992)
    TM began when Andy and Neal Keller one dark and delicious day began to bang on oil drums in the basement of a suburban ranch house. Instant techno-industrial. Over the next decade, the duo recorded numerous tracks, including a live show at the 9:30 Club, nurturing a sound where the Grateful Dead meets Throbbing Gristle with a pinch of the Rollings Stones tossed into the mix just to disturb the holy gatekeepers. Highlights from the era include Testicular Momentum appearing at the Summer of Hate Industrial Festival with Missing Foundation & Jared Hendrickson. TM's last show at the now defunct Bayou Club on the Georgetown waterfront was captured on DVD with Paul Bonomo on guitar. Andy's favorite onstage antics featured getting drunk, sticking the mike up his butt and buying drinks for the entire front row.

    The Flying Shards (1985-1987)
    The Flying Shards were a satirical novelty band, merging a girl punk aesthetic with post-punk attitudes poking fun at the whole underground scene while voicing rapt affection for local genius band stalwarts 9353. Playing local clubs, members included Laura X, Bess Powell, Ken Taylor, Rene Farkass, Andy Corrigan, and Mitch Parker with occasional appearances by Bob Blumstein, Mary Stoffel, and Michael Stone... What was the other girlie girl singer's name? Oh yes, Laura, but what was her LAST name? Were there any other hollow men up there on stage? It's hard to say. There WAS that one night when Rene pounced off the stage grabbing at Gabriel.

    Red Dogma (1983-1984)
    Red Dogma was formed in 1983 in Washington by Thomas Conley, who was part of DC's mbra poetry group, throwing down avant-garde roots in neo-communist laced soil. Its members were Tom, Jenny, Ron, Alfred and Andy. With Jenny on the lead mike, they were a scene favorite at DC SPACE, the now vanquished benchmark club of the 1980s underground scene then located at the corner of 7th & E Streets in northwest DC. Red Dogma was Andy's first real band, but the group folded when Tom Conley & Jenny Greensil married and headed for Australia.
