Autumn 1988

Jeff Manino joins ATTAXE.

We placed an ad in "The Recycler" for a new bassist to replace Gary Sebourn. After a few months of searching (I remember bassists were few and far between at this time) Jeff Manino answered the ad, auditioned and joined ATTAXE. Jeff was a good bassist, though his style was quite reserved. We immediately started working to learn the the songs and start gigging again, however I don't recall any gigs with Jeff while Rob was vocalist. Writing was very slow at this time - lots of riffs were happening but not a lot of lyric ideas to form songs. The songs that would become "Cost of Life" and "Passive" were written but lyrics never fully developed.
