Info: The wrens get a call in 1989 off their first demo asking if they want to open for comeback band - The Fixx. The catch is that they must sell 1000 tickets. The wrens fail to sell even 6 tickets and sadly, the Fixx cancel. The ‘80s draw to a close.
The wrens get a gig as the house band on the on Cape May/Delaware Ferry. The wrens later get fired after performing the Pixies’ “debaser” to the mostly senior citizen crowd. The wrens move to a house in Secaucus, NJ. (The wrens will continue to live together and record at home for the next 10 years) read more from the source...
