Today’s The Daily Create, tdc1990 asked us to remember a favourite band that was about “without something,” like the example Men Without Hats didn’t have hats.
It reminded me of one of my favourite pop-synth bands that I was in of the eighties which was called Stairless Society. Over the course of our career arc, we released several albums which produced zero hit singles or didn’t even get on the charts, but still I thought we had a great concept and of course we had a funky beat.
We had fun touring with that first album, but along the way, some of the bandmates got discouraged, and by the time we re-grouped to cut a second album, we were down to two members, me and one other.
Unfortunately for some bad press that arose just during the release of our second album (an overeager reporter dug into my history and dredged up all the news related to the court cases back in 1963-65), we struggled to get gigs. After a few weeks, it was just me up there on the stage trying to run all the different instruments by myself as well as acting as the face of the band.
By the end of that tour, we (I) decided to give it one more go by releasing a retrospective album, but it went nowhere, and so I moved on to more exciting dreams.
But it was still a fun time!
