The Secret Society (rev1)

This is the first incarnation of The Secret Society which had it's first and only performance in early 1987 during Winter Carnival at Shippensburg Area Senior High School. This line up included (from left to right) Scott McConnell (Synthesizers), Matt Norcross (Bass), Dirk Frey (Guitar), and LarryLee Fiber (Vocals and Drums).

The set list for this ill-fated performance included Monster Man (The Suburbs), Pung (an original song), and All of the Law (The Psychedelic Furs). When we began to play our next song (an original song by Dirk Frey), the clock struck 8 o'clock. This is important because, at 8:00pm, a DJ was to begin the dance in the cafeteria. So, as fate would have it, the powers that be "pulled the plug" on our show and we never had a chance to finish our set which also included Bullet The Blue Sky (U2) and Progressions (another original song).

To this date, no audio or video has been obtained from this show but it is known that Shawn Mailey (son of SAJHS gym teacher, Marshall Mailey) did, indeed, videotape the performance. Any help in tracking down this footage would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Long overdue thanks are in order for Zandra Fosbre who took the only photographs that documented this event.
