Biography

RockBoar.com Picture    "Formedin 1967 in Chico, California; they were originally known at the Medallions. The few obscure tracks Afterglow have left us, feature unusual trancelike segments punctuated by spacey organ and unusual guitar and sound effects. Perhaps a hint of early Pink Floyd."[1]

   Afterglow was Tony Tecumseh, guitar and vocals, Klamath Falls, Oregon; Gene Resler, guitar and vocals, Dorris, California; Ron George, bass and Vocals, Mount Shasta, California; Roger Swanson, keyboards and vocals, Mount Shasta, California; and Larry Alexander, drums, Fort Jones, California.

     That fall, Afterglow began recording with producer Leo Lukla at his Golden State Recorders studio, but due to their studies, they were unable to complete an album until late 1967; the resulting eponymous record appeared early the following year on MTA Records.

   The usual tours and promotions never took place, despite the album’s international release. The band didn’t hear anything else much from the producers or the label, MTA Records in New York City. Soon, it was clear; there were no calls, or royalties, coming.

     Afterglow disbanded sometime in 1968.
