From SD Troubadour:
"After moving to San Diego and becoming a fixture in the local scene, (Jim McInnes) co-founded Land Piranha in 1979. "In retrospect, it seems like we were destined to be an opening act for the Penetrators, because we must have played half our gigs with them!" (the Penetrators, featuring Dan McClain, who would later morph into Country Dick Montana, listed McInnes as a "spiritual advisor" on one of their albums.)
With Jim on bass, Land Piranha "played '60s garage tunes like Paul Revere and the Raiders, the Stooges, and MC5 with a little Cheap Trick and even Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow thrown in." Land Piranha gigged until 1981, often at the Spirit Club, and were featured on a live compilation album titled Who's Listening?
