Formed by Shawn Baird in the mid '80s after the breakup of BURNIN
BOB & THE BIG BOYS , EB started off with Dominic from the
CAMBODIAN KIDS on vocals. But, shortly after that Craig Hardy took
over singing duties and the band continued on with a new
direction. Recording at Audio Image Recording with Gray Gregson
and at the On Broadway studios in Fresno, they had a unique style,
straddling punk and hard rock they called "Crunch Rock".
Kelly and Craig had both played in Visalia's MY THREE SONS,
a punk band in 1980. Kelly also went on to play drums years later for
the last incarnation of CAPITOL PUNISHMENT '93-'95.
ERRATIK BEHAVIOR stayed together for several years playing a lot of
shows, including some at the Old Town Saloon, (became Cadillac
Club) and the Olympic Tavern, (became Club Fred).
