Relapse was put together in 1984 when I came back from Holland. It was time to make music and let the sound carry me away! I met guitar player and song writer, Kevin Wells, in Concrete Washington.
I was having a beer in one of the old taverns in town. Keven had a bass player named Steve Dane. After a couple games of pool we want over to Steve's house and jammed. It worked well, the sound was great so we became known as Relapse. We changed bass players when we brought in Dave Lowery . Other than that we played as loud and as often as we could.
The line up was Kevin Wells guitar, vocals; Doc Roc Van Etten drums, vocals; Steve Dane, bass and
Dave Lowery bass. The band broke up in 1987.
Doc and Dave started the band Doc Roc at that time
