From Maria T. Sciarrino blog:
Red Buckets were based around Boston-born Lou Reedish singer-songwriter Richard Mason. Before he came to Philadelphia, Mason had a Boston-based band called The Insteps, with Philadelphians Cordy Swope (later in Ruin) and Dave Brown (formerly in many bands ranging from The Lyres to Drug Emporium; currently in Clock Strikes Thirteen). He kept changing band members except for his girlfriend Kris Yiengst on bass, who later was one of the 800 members of The Friggs. Before the compilation, they released a 7″ that’s not very good on Burn Potential (the same label as the comp, which was run by Head Cheese/Book of Love singer Sue Ottaviano — I think this plus the Head Cheese 45 and the comp are the whole Burn Potential catalog).
