I discovered the Testors very late. I think it was in 2002 I first heard them. And was I blown away? Yes I was. Sonny Vincent who sang and played guitar in Testors is still an active rocker. Testors formed in 1976 but it wasn’t until 1980 they got them self togheter(ouiiiii) to release Together.
“1980 TESTORS releases a single titled “Time is Mine/Together” on Bleeker Bob’s “Drive-In” label. TESTORS does shows with the Cramps, Iggy Pop, Steel Tips, Suicide etc.
Following a series of intense episodes that include a fight with Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group) live on New York radio (broadcast live from the new C.B.G.B. theater) and setting a fire onstage that got out of control (sprinklers turn on and the entire club with audience, band and equipment are soaked) Sonny is taken to Wingdale mental hospital upstate in New York for observation and treatment. After three months he is released and begins filmmaking. Along with filmmaking he is active as a multi media installation artist in New York City.“.
There’s also a dubbel disc discography that has some early killer stuff on it. I’ll post that later on.
