The profile above is talking about 2 different bands. I was the drummer of the Portraits with 2 45s on Sidewalk + 2 LP cuts under other names. The band with the 45 on Nike had no connection with us (altho both bands DID originate in Milwaukee). I'm the author of 2 bks on 50s-60s recorded music from WI & the Nike Portraits are included. If interested, the garagehangover site listed DOES have the correct info, as I was the contributor.
