  • The PLANETS [New York]
    Biography As far as I know, The Planets were from New York City. Seemed to be a long time Bomp and Trouser favourite, maybe because they remained unsigned for a few years. I read from Bomp that "they have been around since approximately 1972, and even then they were a strongly commercial, Who-influenced powerpop band". According to the valuable America Underground column published in Trouser Press, "circa `77 they has gone through a major shake-up. Lead singer Tally Taliaferrow had left to join The HEAT (see entry) and guitarist Binky Phillips has shifted to the center mike to sing and share guitar duty with new-comer Jeff Lull (once briefly a Planet bass player)". I miss any reference about their releases, but I understand they've never had any record out. Any help ?
