City Slang: SRC back at the Bag

Posted By on Sat, Jun 9, 2012 at 7:13 AM

Classic ‘60s Detroit rockers the SRC return to the Magic Bag in Ferndale on June 29 a year after the band’s initial triumphant reunion show.

The lineup of Scott Richardson, Steve Lyman, Glenn Quackenbush and Gary Quackenbush are a year older and wiser, and this show could well prove to even more special.

A statement says, “While the original line up has never reunited, the band has seen a sudden rebirth in popularity since the mid-1980s. Their three albums have been re-released due to popular demand in the United Kingdom and sessions from their final years have been turned into two albums of material that were released in the late 80's and early 90's. SRC's influence spreads wide: In fact in recent years it has surfaced in Detroit News Papers that Peter Gabriel was a very big fan of SRC. In fact, he was once quoted as saying he played their first album so much he wore down the groove. It has also been noted that the popularity SRC saw in the UK was much greater than in the United States.”
