MYSTERY PHOTO: Still They Haunt Us III: Are You Ready to Rock?!

Or, more accurately, are you ready to identify another mystery photo from the Library of Congress?!

Like our other mystery stills (see links below), this particular shot was found within a much, much larger collection of film, TV and music stills that the LC acquired about seven years ago.  We have no other information besides that and, nope, there’s nothing on the back.

We assume that this was (is) a band of some sort.  They might be U.S. in origin or they might not.  So who are they–either individually or collectively?

We hope someone out there can tell us.  So please let us know your thoughts.  Please help us solve this mystery!  THANKS!

From the National Film Registry: “Nanook of the North” Released 100 Years Ago

  One hundred years ago this month, the film “Nanook of the North” premiered at New York City’s Capitol Theatre.  It has been watched and discussed ever since, as a complicated combination of art and ethnography, docudrama and reenactment, exploitation and cooperation.

PBS Goes for Laughs: “The Steven Banks Show” of 1994

With the exception of some carefully chosen British imports, you might not normally associate public television with broad-based comedy.  But, in 1994, America’s own PBS did something that they’ve never done since:  they produced and aired a 30-minute sitcom. The program, “The Steven Banks Show,” ran for 13 episodes in 1994.  Five episodes of the […]
