Synopsis

Album Description
Flushed from Fayetteville, North Carolina-where they thought they could remain comfortably obscure-by our release of their only album, the Runners have recently re-surfaced. Issued in ultra-limited quantity by B.T. Puppy in 1970-and now changing hands for sums more familiar to NASDAQ-this is an other-worldly blend of sweet female blotter acid harmonies, hypnotic Farfisa and high-octane fuzz guitar histrionics.

Bow street runners
michael dees | Galax, VA | 01/20/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! Really surprised to see the album on sale again after all these years. I am one of the original band members and did a good bit of the back-up vocals for this album. Haven't seen the other band members since moving from Fayetteville,NC (where the album was recorded) some twenty odd years ago. If you guys are still out there and reading this, call me in Galax, VA. I'm the only Dees in the phone book. Would love to see you guys one more time. Peace to all! The 70's are still alive!"

"first--hi mike dees.second, i'm one of the two guitar players on the record. there was only a vox tone bender fuzz tone on 2 of the songs. Watch and Another Face. the rest was just an amp turned on 10. the organ was not A FARFISA BUT A HAMMOND M-100 WITH PROBLEMS. we were young and poor musicians then.still are actually. 2 of the musicians on the record have passed away in the past couple years. frank hardwick-bass, and steve darling 2cd guitar. all that's left is george graham-drums who's still in fayetteville,n.c., randy smith organ on two songs and me. oh yeah mike dees also. that's all. there's a new bow street runners record out there. recorded in 1997.don't know how to buy one. thru some studio in nc."

"Wow, pretty cool finding this review of the Bow Street Runners album/CD. Used to have this album back in the day as I grew up in Fayetteville and remember seeing these guys play at Roland's and the Electric Coffeehouse quite a bit and doing free Sunday afternoon concerts at Rowan Street Park. Didn't know anybody in band except for Steve Struthers, who I didn't know all that well. Used to hang out quite a bit with some guys in a band called Valley (James Kinlaw, Charlie May, Mike Eason, ect). If anybody from the Bow Street Runners or Fayetteville people/musicians reads this give me a shout and we'll talk about the old days in Fayetteville. Lots of good music and bands back then."
