 Future Dads

Rich Parsons, vocals, guitar (Unnatural Axe)
Richie Kerr, drums (Lonely Boys)
Fritz Ericson, lead guitar, vocals (Freddie and The Victors)
Lee Harrington, bass, vocals
Bob "Moose" Parsons, sax

Under-aged act from Dorchester that gave rise to Band 19. The act participated in the Rumble in 1981 and played the big Channel benefit for the High School Times (2/82). Harrington went on to the Neighborhoods. Leader Parsons had a solo cut on the ABCD (1988) project with Ericson, then went on to front the Condo Pygmies. Tunes worth hearing again include Dorchester Summer, Tree, Gang Busters, and the popular No Surfin in Dorchester Bay. Richie had cut his teeth with Unnatural Axe who had an amicable split by the spring of 1980 (and a huge sendoff to a packed house at the Rat in April). Kid brother, Moose, did time with the Boston City All-Star Band.

The hit No Surfin in Dorchester Bay came out on a 45 rpm under the group name The Gremies.
The Gremies: Rich Parsons, vocals, guitar; Frank Dehler, bass; Jeff Conolly, keyboards; Howie Ferguson, drums; Ralph Fatello, guitar; Bob (Moose) Parsons, sax.
