I was hoping to generate some AP buzz regarding our upcoming show Saturday 5/3/14. I'm the drummer in the Philadelphia Punk band Thorazine that started in the 90s. Our claim to fame, was the pharmaceutical giant Smith Kline Beecham (now Glaxo SmithKline) threatening us with a cease and desist order regarding their trademarked name. The case hit Time/Newsweek,Rolling Stone, etc and from that press, we were signed to a little label in LA (Dionysus/Hell Yeah) and hit the road. We toured the US & Canada, coast to coast 6-7times. Played Lollapalooza in Pittsburgh in '99. Released two full-length CDs and one professional video and generally hadda blast, until we broke up in 2000. But a documentary being made about the diorama that we used for our 1st CD/LP cover, brought us back together. We hadn't spoken, let alone been in the same room with one another until the filming started in Nov of 2013. Now, we're diligently rehearsing for a reunion show (Sat. 5/3) The film crew was hired by Ripley's Believe it or Not (buyers of said diorama) They interviewed us, the family that donated it to Ripley's, and generally film the piece being restored before being placed in their museum in OH. They're also going to film this reunion show, so bits of it will be in the film as well.

Here's the AP tie-in. I'm an African American (drummer 49yrs old), our band is fronted by Jo-Ann. A red-headed Irish-German woman (almost unheard of back then for a hardcore, males-only, punk rock scene) Our bassist Ross is Jewish (gets mistaken for Italian because of his NY accent and 55yrs old) and a 6'3" Long-haired Nordic GOD (guitarist 49yrs old and married to Jo-Ann). We lived together in the same place for 10+yrs. We were known in the West Philly Punk Scene (where we lived) as the Punk Rock Partridge family. We lived together, toured together, you name it. Sunday nights was movie-nite. Used to host Christmas/Holiday dinners etc. When on the road, bands would let us crash in their homes and we offered ours up to them in return. It call came crashing to a halt in 2000, when Jo-Ann & Elliott (vocals&guitar) decided it was time to start a family. Now their kids are older and they're getting the itch. I never lost it! I kept going with other projects, but nothing ever really panned out.

During our hey-day, MTV's real world considered us for a reality show, but alas we were too old. We had all the makings, in that we already lived together (no need to rent a house), were in a band and were multi-racial/cultural. But we were dissed and dismissed without benefit of being kissed, because of our age (do you smell lawsuit?)

OK, bent your ear enough. Is our sordid tale interesting enough to generate a little mention with the AP stamp of approval, or am I totally barking up the wrong tree?

Please feel free to like and/or submit the page to anyone that might remotely be interested. . .

Find out more about Sabatta in this revealing new interview with the UK rockers.

Many will already know Sabatta from their performance at Afropunk in 2009. Since then Yinka, the frontman and creative force behind the band, embarked on a solo project in 2011. This culminated in a number of critically acclaimed releases: the South London- Brooklyn EP in 2012 and the singles, No Brakes and Little Hipster Hipster Girl Lost in 2013.

But now SABATTA is back!

In this exclusive interview, Yinka (guitar) and Mari (drums) talk about how they formed the new Sabatta, the songwriting process and their new EP. Peep!

Watch Sabatta Live

Look out for the new ’KNOW MY NAME ‘ EP out in March!
