Haunting Souls / Scorched Earth @ Canal Street Tavern 5/8/1992
Haunting Souls were a long running Dayton band fronted by the ever entertaining Jamy Holliday. There's no way I can recall the lineup at this show since HS had about 20 people pass through the band during their existence. However, they always put on a great show and the one constant was Jamy. Here's a link to an interview with Jamy back in 1994 from a back issue of Mutant Renegade Zine
The other band on the bill, Scorched Earth, was also known as Scorched Earth Policy and gained a decent following during their two years in existence. Their members wandered off into other bands such as Workhorse and Nostromo but not before sharing their heavy Soundgardenesque sound around town.
One of the oddest things about this flyer is the mention of it being a Spookycore Production. I've traded mail many times with Spooky and even got a great mix tape from him but can't recall ever meeting him. Of course that was all back in the 90's, I have no idea what has become of him now.
