In 1987 rising from the ashes of The Dogmatics and Stranglehold. Jerry Lehane and Jim Keough inspired by the Faces, and the Mick Taylor Stones they would put together the boozy, bluesy, rocking punk orchestra, MATWEEDS.
The band consisted of Dave Collins (X-DYS) on drums, Dave Fredette (Titanics,Uppercrust) on lead guitar, Richie McKenzie Hughes (Stranglehold, The Oysters) Frank Schact (Last Stand) on bass, Nate Bowditch (The Cheapskates, Mission Impossible) on Sax, John Goetchius (Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Dogmatics, Cherry Picking Daddies). Contributing to their live shows you had Chris Doherty (Gang Green), Mike County (The Outlets), Chris Erikson, Charlie McAndy, Dana Colley, Malachi Connolly. The Matweeds would proceed to blow the roof off every Northeast club opening up for the likes of The Ramones, SLF, and their pals the Neats. At the urging of their manager Jive King, the Matweeds would record at the legendary Fort Apache in Roxbury under the expert guidance of Paul Koldrie and Sean Slade. What we have here are the never released recordings.
