Not only were they regulars at the Grande and Eastown during that particular heyday, often sharing bills and roadies with the Stooges, but they were the first band I recall to use those little umlauts in their name (above the "u") years before Blue Oyster Cult or Motley Crue did the same. (Sorry, I never figured out how to add umlauts on a computer just use your wicked little imaginations...)
