Brenner and Moore both from

As Kubera said: "We used to be called Skogie
and the FLAMING Pachucos, then we changed personel and called
ourselves Skogie AND the Flaming Pachucos, then we changed
personel again, now we call ourselves simply Skogie.......and
the Flaming Pachucos"
When Dick Rogers, the
multi-intrumentalist and (more or less) 'star' of Skogie & the Flaming Pachucos(v2) departed, the band had to scramble to put together two
sets of material for their next gig.
Most of the material Skogie & the Flaming Pachucos(v2) were performing was dependent on
Dick's instrumental prowess and backing vocals.
Skogie & the Flaming Pachucos(v3) were able to
salvage two Skogie & the Flaming Pachucos(v2) originals (Atomic Dildo #23 and Mighty
Rivers/Chant of the Dying Insects).
Moore taught the band two songs he
had written for An English Sky
(Colonel Arnold's Cross and Pretend That You Love Me),
and in a burst of creativity he composed 7 new vocal based songs (You Don't Even Know My Name, Don't Fall In Love, My Baby Loves Me,
Call Me Crazy, Treat Me Like Dirt, Twelve Days Ago, and Ram It).
They rounded out the set list with 4
Sun Studios 50s rock songs and a 20 minute Beatles medley.
Everything took place at "THE
