FLASHBACK FOTO: Name the Band! Win a Prize!

Flashback Foto

You were soooo close, but, alas, there was no winner last week.

It’s FLASHBACK FOTO Thursday once again, and we went digging, digging, digging through the vast Nippertown archive bunker to unearth yet another fabulous band promo photo from years gone by.

Thanks to the fine folks at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany, we’re giving away a FREE PAIR OF MOVIE PASSES to the 8th commenter who correctly identifies this band. Please keep in mind that all of the weekly Flashback Fotos are of local Nippertown bands of yesteryear, which should help steer you away from guesses like the Chemical Brothers, Cypress Hill or the Crown Heights Affair.

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!
Congratulations to Chris O’Donnell for correctly identifying Conehead Buddha!

    Hey it says ‘be the first to comment’- should it say “SUCKER” after that? (since you’ve got to be the eighth one to win the prize and there is only one entry allowed)

    Well, I guess I’ll be the sacrificial commenter here:

    Oh to be young again! It’s probably not fair if I participate in this contest, so please give the prize to someone else. This is an early photo of Conehead Buddha. Most likely 1996 or ’97 but Im not sure. We took it at some ruins in Leeds NY where our horn siblings (terry and Shannon Lynch) partied (I mean studied) while in high school. Left to right: Chris Kennedy, Pete Bencini, Jim McCuen, Chris Fisher, Shannon Lynch, Terry Lynch.

    Interviewed them on air & partied at their shows!
    Those were the daze!

    I totally love how people said this was Dunbar. I assume they meant it jokingly. But too funny nonetheless.
