First Sixty Wrong Sausages practice
Sixty Wrong Sausages was the first band to unite Rivers, Pat and Jason Cropper [the original other guitar player before Brian Bell]. The band was the brainchild of Pat Wilson and Patrick Finn, who rounded out the foursome. The band played a combo of Patrick Finn songs, Pat Wilson songs, and Rivers songs. All 3 of them switched off on lead vocals depending on which song it was. Rivers played the drums when Pat Wilson came up to lead on a song.
Stylisticly, the band was a bit confusing, but there were some killer tunes. From the near-metal/grunge assault of "Answer Man" and "Burn My Bridges", to the frenetic salsa-funk of "Sherrif Wong" and "Crayon Man" to the straight Pixies-like "Workplace", to the amalgamated freakouts of "Tennis Ball" and "Been Gi", there was something for everyone, but only for those who could handle a lot of curve balls.
60 Wrong Sausages had decided to record a demo first, then practice and play shows. This wasnt the usual formula, and it met with mixed results. The demo was called "The Cholesterol E.P.", but it was never distributed.
