Uniontown, Ohio 1965-8.
The Interns were formed by students at Green High School in the small community of Uniontown just south of Akron. The band name centered around lead singer Joe Shamp, whose father was a physician. In late '67 the Interns recorded two songs at Akron Recording, "I've Got Something To Say" and "The Trip". When the records came back, one of the tracks had been mixed out of sync on "I've Got Something To Say". So, a second pressing was ordered, and to go with it, a picture sleeve was made by the band themselves. The 45 got airplay on WAKR and sold out of the first 500 copies, so another 500 were pressed and sold. Only a couple hundred picture sleeves were issued. The 45 was the Interns only recording, but it's a great one. A flubbed drum shot can be heard on "The Trip" where Craig Gay hits a mike stand with a stick. The band broke up in mid '68 as the last member graduated high school.
