I count you, Dubar, Dan O' Mahoney and quite a few others.
Timing. 1980-84 was a fun time to be involved with Hardcore. It was brand new and full of so much potential and Mater Dei was a strictly regimented Catholic environment. When you put those two things together and mix in hard headed individuals you create an electric atmosphere. Dubar once shaved a cross in the back of his head and tried to convince the staff that he was simply exercising his right to celebrate religion! Pat Dubar and I wanted to form a band. He knew a guitar player and a bass player that lived in his neighborhood so all we had left to decide was who was going to be the singer and who was going to play drums. Basically we flipped a coin and thankfully he went and bought a P.A. and I bought a drum kit. We played our first show in a warehouse with a bunch of other bands…I didn't know how to play a lick and in fact I didn't even have a foot pedal…we were called "Labeled Dead. From there Pat got the opportunity to join Uniform Choice and I went off with Joe Foster (guitar, Ignite), Joe Navarette (bass) and Rob Lynch (vocals) to form Unity. Pat Dubar and I formed Wishingwell Records and decided to put it out ourselves. At that time the list of possible record labels was pretty much non-existent. We were nervous but confident that we could make it work for not only UC, but for other bands throughout the United States that faced similar road blocks. But back to UC, I got a call from Dubar on a Friday night in my dorm room and he was frantic. Pat and I thought it would be a good idea to put out something else before the UC album and we agreed that a Unity 7" would be the perfect fit. We practiced with Joe Foster and John Lowery (his name was butchered on the jacket sleeve as John Low but he didn't care) and went into Casbah Studios and recorded the whole thing live. This was pretty much my project and I was thankful to Pat for letting me handle it. I had written the lyrics and performed these songs live so it was particularly special to me. I took the cover picture of Pat at a park near his house and the great Gavin Oglesby was kind enough to draw the back cover (my Mother used her calligraphy pen to write the back song titles). Dubar and I convinced him that we had some artists (UC and Unity) that could sell some units and open him up to a new audience of young people. He turned out to be a crook but we never let him manipulate our artistic vision…naive as it was. Pat Dubar and I were equal partners in Wishingwell records. I didn't mind because I thought it would be fun and probably my last collaboration with Dubar and I was pretty much correct on both accounts. Pat Dubar was a powerful front man, Dave was a solid bassist, Victor was as dynamic a hardcore guitarist as I have ever seen and I just loved to go berserk. Outwardly, Pat and I drove the band. I loved making music so when Dubar tossed around the idea of writing some new Unity material and re-mixing the vocals on the old stuff I was up for it. Dubar rolled with it after the song and said, "next time could you please throw dollars? They don't hurt as much." Yes indeed the t-shirts did catch on fire in the back of the camper that Mr. Dubar let us use. Pat moved to New York with Mind Funk and pursued that genre of music and I had graduated from college and moved on.

Neither Brian Baker nor Pat Dubar (also mentioned in your article) can say the same about either of their bands (Baker's Junkyard and Dubar's Mindfunk).Also, Pat Dubar was Uniform Choice's singer.

These two friends of mine named Chris Smith and Jamie Dominguez were really good friends with [Uniform Choice singer] Pat Dubar.
Jamie-his nickname was "Hound"-was Pat Dubar's catcher on the baseball team at Mater Dei High School. Pat was a very successful high school pitcher and went on to play in college. So they introduced me to Pat. I had already heard Minor Threat and some other bands, but then I learned about Uniform Choice because of the Pat connection. Uniform Choice, circa mid-'80s. (Photo: Facebook) Was Pat and the other Uniform Choice guys the first people you met who claimed edge? Pat was a stud baseball player back then. I can't speak for Pat, but he was the kind of guy who wouldn't talk down to you. He was just a great guy. You would have never thought he went to a private school like Mater Dei. I very much looked up to Pat because he was a jock who was straight edge and into hardcore. He was a rebel, going completely against the grain at his school. I looked up to Pat Dubar, Kevin Seconds, and Brad Xavier. Was that just a natural conclusion from being friends with Pat Dubar? Next thing you knew, Pat wanted to put out Insted on Wishingwell. Pat Dubar's brother, Courtney, did all of our shirts.

We wrote the entire demo. [Uniform Choice singer, Wishingwell Records owner] Pat Dubar heard the demo in early 1989 and we made a deal with Wishingwell Records.
The label folded while the record was in the test pressing stage. They shut down and held onto the reels. In the late '90s, Dubar sold our record to Lost & Found in Europe and then claimed the record had been "bootlegged.
