The Fad, a three-piece power-pop group often dressed in Star
Trek-type shirts, was around Philly early- to mid-'80s. The band
members were Tyler students: Frank Mamlin (previously Der Mond);
Russ Fama (previously Metrix); and Dave Martin (previously No Milk).
The band played all the usual places -- Grendel's, Dobb's,
Khyber, East Side, Ripley's, etc. They opened for the Stray Cats at
the Halloran Ballroom ROUND 1982. You might recognize the logo as it
was stenciled all over South Street. The valentines are from
East Side, 2/14/82.
