MICHAEL STANDER - BASS GUITAR
MONKEY PAW 3:17
Editor's note: fairly pedestrian stuff as far as the 80s goes but a nice little 45 nonetheless. Moody pop/rock with catchy hooks and solid direction. Too bad the disc has heavy scratches in the middle of each side and subsequent skips which I tried to fix with weights to no avail. This brother/sister based trio came out of Ann Arbor and both are still active in various projects with Khalid having some minor and minor major success. I could find nothing on the bassist and you probably won't be able to either. Oh yeah, I checked on eBay and some of their stuff is available if you wanted to check them out further.
