The Flakes existed in Seattle in the early 1980s.  They were a regular rotating band at Ruby Chow’s Lounge on Capitol Hill and the Gorilla Room on 1st Avenue.  They played new wave/Punk, Ramones and Dave Edmunds, Jilted John style stuff.  They were also known to take on the identity of the “Del Ridge Boys” and play country music at some Country and Western bars in Kent and DesMoines, Washington.

Brian and Bill’s whereabouts are not known.  Rick is an automobile dealer in Mesa, AZ and plays a solo acoustic guitar act.
