Wallflowers Phase Two

Detail: Wallflowers Phase Two flyerAnd straight from the metal box, the next installment of the Wallflowers saga, courtesy of vocalist David Rinck. Here’s Mr. Rinck’s commentary on Phase Two of this seminal band:

“The second lineup of The Wallflowers was David Rinck on vocals, Todd Lahman on guitar, Paul Howland on bass, Armando on sax, Arturo Reyes on drums.

There were plenty of them, including a big bash one Halloween with simultaneous concerts at Greenwich Village and 517. This place was central to the SD bands (gigs and recording), yet the only remnant of 517 that seems to exist is our ode to Steve Epeneter, ‘Paradise on 4th Ave.’ ”
