Fang:Grunge Pioneers

I remember these guys coming into my record store(Universal) on Telegraph Ave in Berkeley in 1980 shoplifting. Sammy was real obnoxious but not as obnoxious as Rob Noxious or Johnny Puke.
Fang was a notorious Berkeley post-punk pre-grunge band from Berkeley that put out 2 Must Have EPs in the 80's(now a must have CD.)
Even Kurt Cobain was a fan and covered this song "Money Will Roll right In."
Sammy was great, I even saw them in Norwalk Connecticut in 1985(?) and they put on a Blistering show.
Too Bad Sammytown got sent to the slammer for killing his girlfriend.
