I was friends with Greg Minter and saw many of the Distant's shows in Tucson in the mid-1980s. They had also been known as The Buddy System. I loved them but they never seemed to draw much of a crowd. I remember being at one bar show which had an audience of three!

Pity the link no longer works. I have been looking to replace this album for years. Just saw Brad play with Loren Dirks in Tucson.
