As promised, here's the first installment of The Odds story in honor of them playing Ralph's 30th Anniversary on May 9th.
They were formed in the late 70's early 80's by JJ Rassler from DMZ, Boston proto-punk pioneers, and Preston Wayne, from Worcester band Hooker of the late 70's. They were joined by Eddy Levasseur also from Hooker, and Steve Aquino of Crazy Jack and The Automatics. Other members over their most active years in the 80's were Steve "Slay" Cohn, Paul Aquino, Mike Cannon, and Bob Swanson. They won the Battle of the Bands at Sanctuary in the Worcester Center in 1982, and were included in two nationally distributed compilation LPs.
The current line up features Chris "Cah" Lillyman and Dave Kowalcek, who played last year at The Wormtown 30th. This years show promise to be even more exciting than last years.
This is a scan from their Press Kit in 1985.
