JJ 180 got its start in 1977 when a group of teenagers came together around the art and music that had influenced them growing up in the 1970’s in Santa Cruz, CA. They were: Polio Ferrari (keyboards), Wally Sound (guitar), Tora Brooks (bass), Walter McKee (guitar) and Caker Calloway (drums). Their music was a hybrid of the then emerging punk sound as well as 1960’s surf, garage and psychedelic music. The band was a keystone of the Santa Cruz punk scene and organized many important early punk & new wave shows in their hometown. After establishing a local following, they released a single and a few songs on compilations. The original line up lasted until 1979, when Walter left the band and they changed their name to “The Realtors.”
A search of the band’s archive has yielded two unreleased gems from their original recording session in March 1978: “Talk Talk,” a cover of the classic Music Machine song and “Classroom” a JJ 180 original featuring the band’s trademark dueling guitar solos and confrontational attitude.
