Flashback Foto: Name That Band, Win A Prize!

Flashback Foto

Okay, let’s see how good you really are: a free pair passes to the Spectrum 8 Theatres will go to the 10th commenter who correctly identifies this band.

To make it fair, comments on this post won’t show up until we announce the winner on Monday afternoon. One comment per person, please, and be sure to leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Good luck!

We’re really kinda disappointed, folks. We knew this might be a bit tougher than the previous Flashback Fotos, but nobody got this one right. NOBODY. The correct answer? Cracked Actor, who named themselves after a song on David Bowie’s 1973 album, “Aladdin Sane.” So we’ll try again with another Flashback Foto from the vast Nippertown archives on Thursday. Don’t disappoint us again….

    I am guessing The Dave Clark 5.

    That’s me in the photo on the far right. I was the keyboard player in Cracked Actor and the one who came up with the name! The photo was taken at the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany. Too Funny…

  6. Hooboy. If Mr. Eck couldn’t get this one right, there’s no hope.

    I am indeed embarrassed. Sure looks like Brad Jarvis and Freddie Gianetti, so I was thinking perhaps a later version of Riproc.
