This obscure San Francisco '60s band gained a degree of notoriety in the '80s when their punk-garage single "Mr. Pharmacist" was included on one of Rhino's Nuggets compilations and covered by the Fall. Actually, most of the Other Half's material was far less garage than psychedelic, featuring the sustain-laden guitar of Randy Holden, one of the best Jeff Beck-inspired axemen of the '60s. Boasting a just-out-of-the-garage approach to Haight-Ashbury psychedelia, the group cut a little-heard, fairly strong album, as well as a few rare singles, in 1967 and 1968.

The renamed The Entrance Band calls Los Angeles its home, and released its LP sorta-debut, The Entrance Band, via Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace.

Emptifish 1983 - 1987 - By Nick Beat. I'd heard about 'Emptifish' while running an illegal drinking den 'The Trash Cavern Nightclub' in Waverly Road, Southsea. These guys were somehow too hot for the regular concertgoer and I decided to keep a distance from the craziness of their antics. As time progressed the band built up such a strong following including many young and attractive girls, 700-800 turning up at venues that held only 200-300 that eventually they became the talk of the South Coast with their musical hybrid of surf/punk and early "Beatles"...
