Rocking Syracuse New York from 1987 - 1990, PAGAN LOVE started as a glimmer in the eye of VOX, after writing what turned out to be really shitty tunes while bored running sound for shows in Cleveland. But after he found the two John's (Haas and Moore) and original drummer and songwriter Steve Sochia, the Pagans started to develop a sound that, at certain instances, didn't suck. Given their first break by Scott Sterling of The Lost Horizon (something I'm sure he regrets to this day), The Pagans started to sing their joke songs to anyone who would listen. Sochia left a few months later and The Pagans recruited Tony Bonghi, a masterful and fast drummer. Their sound jelled into a juggernaut powerhouse, successfully hiding the fact that their front man couldn't sing or play a note, and that his songs basically sucked. Thank God the rest of the band started writing! They all went their separate ways in 1990, before they killed each other. It's a wonder anyone remembers them at all.
