First they were “The Units.” Then they were “Fear of Strangers.” A great band that almost made it: Val Haynes, Steve Cohen, Todd Nelson and Al Kash. There’s not much of a trace of them now, even on the Internet where the collective memory doesn’t reach back to the early eighties very well. Their legacy is a single album released by a now defunct label, a photo album by Dave Suarez, and this vintage video I found at youtube. It’s dated but they once OWNED Albany and they helped me get through the first years of the Reagan administration.
