Blanks 77 was conceived by vocalist Mike Blank and drummer Chad 10 Seconds during jam sessions at Quincy rock club The Pipeline. Guitarist Renee Wasted was added after he replied to an ad placed in a local music newspaper. Blanks 77 has gone through three bass players since its inception. Original bassist Brendan, who had previously played with the CT-based group, Devastation, was replaced by Geoff, who gave way to T.J. Blank, formerly the lead singer and guitarist for the Broken Heroes
, in 1995.
Blanks 77's debut album, Killer Blanks, was released in Germany in 1995 and in the United States the following year. Their second album, Tanked & Pogoed, followed in 1997. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
