The guy on left is Richard Gottehrer who'd go on to co-found Sire Records, and produce early NYC punk bands like Blondie, Richard Hell & the Voidoids, the Fleshtones, etc. Great guy. As a songwriting team these guys also produced the Angels' My Boyfriends Back, the McCoys' Hang On Sloopy, and dozens of other great records. He's still at it.

Still the first and best version of I Want Candy (Sorry Anabella Lwin).

I didn't know Dave Grohl was in the Strangeloves...

I interviewed Gottehrer's partner Seymour Stein not too long ago, and when I brought up the Strangeloves he seemed glad to encounter someone who actually remembered them.
