RANDY AND THE RANDIES, a garage punk band was originally formed in late 1979. They are of the Portland music lineage traced back through Jennifer to FORMICA AND THE BITCHES and the Neo Boys, becoming the strange little brother band to these more famous UNDERGROUND greats.They were privileged to be a part of the early PORTLAND DIY scene, and helped redefine what it meant to be in a band. With instruments provided by FRED & TOODY COLE, the same way many emerging outfits got their start, the band was off and running. Included in Mark Sten's book, ALL AGES: THE RISE AND FALL OF PORTLAND PUNK ROCK, 1977-1981; the band's original cassettes and 8-track recordings were recently remastered by MIKE LASTRA. And, in 2015, Jennifer Lobianco, along with her former band, Neo Boys, were inducted into the OREGON MUSIC HALL OF FAME.
