499. Weber and the Buzztones – Weber and the Buzztones

WEBER AND THE BUZZTONES (1984)

Weber and the Buzztones

This little gem would have ranked significantly higher if there were more than 4 songs. As a result this album (EP) is the shortest on the list. A whole lot of keyboards and with touches of The Cars and Gary Numan. I did get to see them once at the Anaheim Convention Center as part of a Calvary Chapel evangelistic event. Several different members flowed in and out of the band and I admit to having very limited knowledge about them outside of seeing them one other time with Steve Taylor.

Like Steve Taylor the music is quirky, fun and the lyrics dry and funny at times. I had always wished for more, but it was apparently never to be.

      Not sure since so much is programmed. I know I saw him live when they were Steve Taylor. The credits have two different Linn Drum programmers. Really, what I recall is this whole project was centered around Larry Weber

    When I was working with Rick (Long) Mann (your predecessor at Diamante in the PNW)at that CD demo business he started, Chuck came by and visited for some reason. He asked a trivia question which (I Think) was which was the very first band he played in. Rick threw out a wild guess with Weber and the Buzztones and was right. This was 11 years ago so I’m kinda fuzzy…..

    I joined Weber and The Buzztones when Larry Weber and Mike Tuuri(the drummer on the ep) moved to Orange County, CA. from San Francisco around 1982-3. At that time it was the three of us (me handling all keyboard parts). We played around southern california and the bay area. We acquired a second keyboardist (Mike Archambaeu)about a year later. I’m kind-of blown away that there is even a trace of it on the internet. We played some great shows with some great bands. I wish I could have played on the ep. All-in-all, a great experience…..I just wish I could find my copies of it…..probably gone the way of the do-do…..

        Hello Larry, Don’t know if you remember me, Mike Spragge, I was the bass player on the 45 you mentioned. I still have a few copies also. That 45 was recorded at David Denny’s (Steve Miller Band) studio in Danville, CA. The band at that time was Larry weber, Mike Tuuri, drummer, Glen Reposa, keyboard, and me, bass. Do you remember the fun concert at I think Dublin High School? Larry was a really all around talented guy.

      Robert, I have a few

      copies of the 45 and I am looking for pictures of the concert we did in Dublin, CA, at the high school. I can’t remember if Larry Anderson or Doug Jorgenson took the photos. Doug was the staff photographer for the Livermore Independent newspaper. I don’t have any photos of myself in the band and would love to have some. Thanks, Mike Spragge
