Considered a cold case by Numero standards, the band at the center of 2013’s “Punk Break on a Funk Tape” mystery has been identified! Using the crowd-sourcing platform that is the “Twin Cities Music Scene ’70’s-’80’s” page on Facebook, a Minneapolis native named Dave Chisholm chimed in with the answer to our riddle:

Ha! I can answer this, I helped record it with Bob at the church on 28th. “A Sacred Version” was the name of the band (a project really). Caleb Palmiter playing a right handed guitar left handed and these two weird English guys who were around for a year or so, Bob and Steve. Steve did not play anything, he was a Malcolm Mclaren wanna be. Bob (Vox) was a pure and dangerous sociopath. How funny to see it turn up in a Quiet Storm graveyard.

Ivan Daniel had the second best perspective on this project:

Steve Mattacott and Bob Beard from Plymouth. (uk). They came over to visit Theresa Downing and I and stayed on causing trouble. Yeah, Dave. Bobby was a bit of a psycho. real “sexy beast” fellow. They were old school skinheads who then decided they were the “punk elite” (no shit, their term!!) Ha!!

Thanks again Minneapolis!
