Culture Shock was a melodic metal band in Austin, Texas from 1989 - 1992. ** The footage did not have ANY Jared (except at the very beginning) and I put in the best Mike stuff there was. I might go back in and try to find some pieces that look right from some other parts of the entire show, but I can't guarantee it. ** David Pearson - vox BZ Lewis - Guitar Mike Fuger - Guitar Billy Cain - Bass, vox, marketing (and dude that made this) Jared Thurman - Drums, vox Bruce Barnett - Sound, Magic Power Steve Powers - Lighting, Flyers Tres Ogden - Spot Cat - Storage Room Manager Culture Shock frequently played in Austin at The Backroom and Steamboat (both defunct), and they also played in Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas. In 1990, they won a "Battle of the Bands" at Cheatham Street Warehouse, with judges from the local music industry, including one of the leaders of 93.7 KLBJ, the main hard rock/AOR station in Austin. Their music was available at Waterloo Records, Austin's premiere "record store" at the time. KLBJ featured them on their "Local Licks" program, as well as performed live interviews. Austin Community College had a live, cable "call-in" program they would frequent, CapZeyeZ, run by Dave Prewitt, who is responsible for video capturing many of the bands that played locally. He used a 3-camera shoot and edited on the fly. The Culture Shock footage from this video was shot live at The Backroom, directed, produced, and edited by Dave. Culture Shock released three demos ("EPs"): Culture Shock, Dream Child, and Where Is The Shame. The artwork on their first was done by R. Zane Rutledge, who was drawing a logo on a whiteboard when the band saw it and decided that was the one. This logo is featured on their first EP and was on the kick drums, thanks to Steve Powers, as he worked at a sign shop and created them himself. Steve went on with us and re-designed the logo to be more visible to the audience, based upon the design by Zane. The first Culture Shock T-Shirts had Zane's design and the next featured Steve's. Steve also did the design and art on their second and third EPs. The tragedy of the band was when Mike decided to join the Air Force. The remaining members asked Dave to leave and after a short while, they realized they were burnt out and decided to call it quits and "take a break" which became permanent. Culture Shock continues in our memories. We hope you enjoy the video. If you like this, please visit our Facebook page. Many pictures and flyers are there for your enjoyment!
