Logo #79: The Turbo A.C.'s
Turbo A.C.'s guitarist and singer Kevin Cole reports, "I drew that on a bar napkin in 1996 when I got the news that the shipment of our first album (Nb. "Damnation Overdrive") wouldn't be delivered in time for our tour - because they were destroyed in a chemical spill at the airport." The band takes their name from a riff on the Turnbull A.C.'s, a gang from the 1979 urban meller "The Warriors," from which Martin Scorsese plucked no small amount of inspiration - beyond the historical - for "Gangs of New York."
