Before Late Model Humans there was Racy Dates. And before Racy Dates there was S&M.
S&M was me and Rick Myers. Back then he was called Sal Iva so Sal and Mike made S&M. For reasons that escaped our understanding, Mike was S and Sal was M.
In the mid-eighties Racy Dates went into the recording studio for the first time. Joining Sal (drums and lead vocals) and Mike (lead guitar) were Matt Kennon (guitar), Nik Winters (bass) and Nancy Maher (backing vocals and percussion). This was Sal’s songwriting contribution to the session: (I Wanna) Stick It Out With You.
