The Original Sins is a punk band, originally coming from the edgy punk music scene of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania which atthe time was in a major decline due to the closing of the once great industrial powerhouse Bethlehem Steel. The band wasstarted by John Terlesky who had been bumping around in various bands including The Creatures of The Golden Dawn whostill play today. JT as he is known wanted to do his own thing and after numerous unsuccessful auditions of musicians whocould not keep up with his erratic guitar and vocal style he was introduced to bassist Ken Bussiere by WMUH college radioDJ Neil Hever. From there he met Dan Mckinney-keys, and Dave Ferrara on drums. The Sins started playing the seedymusic hall called the Funhouse and also the 4GS on the Southside garnering a huge local following. They then released thealbum Big Soul, which was revered throughout the rock and roll underground. After that came the Hardest Way. In 1990the band thought they struck gold as their next album Move was produced by REM's Peter Buck. The expected impact fromthis did not occur as Nirvana happened and record companies foucused their energies on grunge rather than garage.Despite this setback, they have the distinction of producing one of the better record covers in history with their 1991 SelfDestruct album. The band persevered throughout the 1990s, developing a bigger following in New York and Philapdelphiathan in their own hometown. A few more albums were released until Ken Bussiere decided to move to Florida and tourwith oldies acts including Peter Noone. « hide
