"Boys With Toys-an Iowa City trio with members Brad Jones, Tommy Meyers, and Joel Carey, power pop/rockabilly, released one LP "Big House" in '85, toured midwest incessantly before adding new members in the late '80's, renaming themselves the Dig Mandrakes and moving to Nashville. Brad still resides there and engineers at Alex The Great studio there."
This is a quote from an e-mail from Kim([mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]) dated November 17th, 2004:
"I saw many of the bands that you have posted info on numerous occasions through those years but there were also some bands that were more popular in the underground scene than those mentioned. Boys with Toys, the Woodies, Bent Scepters, Letters from the Circus, the Hollowmen, 4 Million, the Cause, Red Throb and my favorite was a band called Something Fierce (whose frontman was a professor in the English dept) were some of the bands that were frequently playing in Iowa City during that time.
