- Enlisting band mates Rob Wise and Brett Rizzo from
his punk rock days (the previous year!), Doug rounded out his new three
piece band. Recording the Album "Buddy Love" in the fall and winter
of 1981 which upon release got high praise from Ira Robbins of Power POP
magazine The Transoceanic Trouser Press. Unfortunately this version
of the band also did not last long and again Doug was left high and dry
without a band in 1983.
