Although Michael Quercio, The Three O’Clock’s singer, came up with the term “Paisley Underground” to refer to the Los Angeles music scene that included bands such as Rain Parade, The Bangles, The Dream Syndicate and Green On Red, his band’s story is not nearly as well known as that of their contemporaries.

Formed in 1981 as The Salvation Army, their first recordings bore a clear psych-pop/garage influence and overtones of their home city’s punk legacy. After changing their name due to legal reasons, the band released the “Baroque Howdown” EP in 1982, where they started to shift towards a more polished pop sound, without abandoning their Nuggets origins. “Sixteen Tambourines”, from 1983, was the culmination of that evolution, helped by Earl Mankey’s production.
