Rosemary's Babies

C.A., Eerie, and Big Ones graduated from Lodi High School in 1982. Post Mortem also went to Lodi High School and graduated in 1980. The band performed live about 6 or 7 times (including one show with The Misfits) before Post Mortem left. He was replaced by the band's roadie, Big Ones, who was with the band for 1 or 2 shows. When the band broke up, both Eerie and C.A. Richie rehearsed with Glenn Danzig as an early incarnation of Samhain. Post Mortem later went on to work with Chris Morance of Mourning Noise in a band called I'm Afraid. Two recordings of Rosemary's Babies shows are owned by band members, one on video, and one on audio tape. There is also an unreleased recording from the summer of 1983 of "Attack Of The Fifty Foot Cowboy" with Eerie on vocals, C.A. on guitar, and Steve Zing on bass and drums.
