Wimp Factor 14 & Crayon

On this day in 1992 Crayon (the band Jeff and I were in before Tullycraft) performed at Play It Again Records in Royal Oak, Michigan. This was the first time we had played outside of the Pacific Northwest. Prior to this show we had only performed in Bellingham, Olympia and Portland (we still hadn’t cracked Seattle yet). The owner of the Play It Again Records gave us $50 – which was very exciting! I don’t think we’d ever made that much money before. This was also the day we first met the amazing Pittsburgh band Wimp Factor 14 – featuring Gary Miklusek on drums. Crayon and Wimp Factor 14 spent the next two weeks playing shows together. Three years later, Gary, Jeff and I would form Tullycraft.

If you are not familiar with Wimp Factor 14, you should be. They were a great band! Here are four songs from their only proper album, Ankle Deep.

Here is a live recording of the song “Sweet” performed at the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle in 2003. It sounds like there was a small but rowdy crowd in attendance for this Wednesday night show. Enjoy.
