Probably every locale in the United States has one. That is, a local band that is immensely popular with the "hip" kids... a band everyone pins their hopes on and believes that it will put their area "on the map". In the later part of the 80s, orange county had Electric Cool-Aid (also known as ECA), which were one of a few bands poised for the "big time". The ubiquitous bumper sticker could be seen on cars all throughout the county, and was a badge of "coolness". I was DJng at KUCI around the time of their existence, but I came into the ECA party a bit late to know their history. nonetheless, I always felt they had "what it takes" and have always been on the lookout for information about them. Now, thanks to the Internet, and more specifically Facebook, I stumbled upon their page, where Nick Sjobek is offering CDs for voluntary donation.
