Wasted Effort (1983)



Richard Dawson - Guitar
Brent Ballantyne - Drums
Erskine Wood - Bass
Mathew Sheridan - Vocals

Another band I know pretty much nothing about, Wasted Effort was around in 1983. As far as I know, they released nothing while they were together and live tapes are all that exist.  Flyers are courtesy of Steve Nordby, thanks Steve!

  1. Mathew Sheridan sang for Wasted Effort, all of us wavo girls thought he was adorable! A preppy punk with a dirty mouth. I saw Wasted Effort play several times at the 3-D Ballroom, once with the Wipers.

  2. Wish I could say the same Diane but I was just a teenage brat with no driver's license living in Junction City in those days.

    IIRC Wasted Effort opened for the Circle Jerks at the WOW Hall about six months before this.

    Erskine worked at "Play it Again Records".

    Richard wanted to start a band with two bass players. I practiced with them once then turned down that gig.

    Brent played with John and me in what would become Johnson Unit.
