It’s practically impossible to think this is the same guy that was the frontman in DNA.
Found a limited edition CD (500 copies only) of this band in a New York record shop. Never heard of them prior to seeing the CD and info about them on the web’s hard to come by. Figured it’d be a nice souvenir from NY, seeing how the cover’s by Keith Haring.
