St. Louis New Wave Nostalgia
Random Access Posters:
The Welders were one of the very first New Wave bands in St. Louis. They were four cute girls and I remember everyone having big crushes on one or the other of them.
They appeared around the same time as the Cool Jerks, in the late 70s. Unfortunately I never saw them play or heard any of their songs. According to a 1981 copy of Jet Lag (#11), some of their songs included "To Sir With Love", "Debutantes In Bondage", "Icebox" and "Rage to Live".
I knew Jane Welder, the keyboard player a little. She moved to San Francisco with the Strikers in the mid-eighties (1983?).
Jane was one of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen, and very sweet too.
