I love the Sex Cark Five and wondered what had become of them. Their albums were all like greatest hits collections. They created a blueprint for writing catchy songs I can think of half a dozen bands off the top of my head that essentially copped the sc5's formula and became sensations.

Was James Butler of the band SC5 also a lawyer who graduated from Huntsville High School?.

I'd love to have the last three sc5 albums: Crimson Panzer, RembrandtX and Monster Session on vinyl.

I enjoyed Matt Wake's story about the Sex Clark Five. Alabama has never had a bonifide indie rock superstar. Maybe it's sc5's time.

I always thought it was cool that SC5 recorded sessions for John Peel and had a cult following in distant lands.

Excellent update about Sex Clark Five. Strum and Drum was kind of a break through indie-rock album IMO.
