Vocalists
    (1979- )
    Born in Atlanta, Georgia
    Jerry Buckner, keyboards and vocals
    Gary Garcia (July 28, 1948-November 17, 2011), guitar and vocals
    Recorded 'Pac-Man Fever' (1982)
    They were one-hit wonders.
    They followed up with a quickie album of video game themed songs that they wrote and recorded in a month.
    They tried to cash in on another craze in the 90s by turning 'Pac-Man Fever' into 'Pokemon Fever.'
    Despite a lack of apparent demand, they re-recorded their album (2001).
    They did not bother to record any new songs for it. ('Grand Theft Auto Fever,' anyone?)
    They almost had a second hit with 'Merry Christmas in the NFL,' but a threatened lawsuit from Howard Cosell scared off airplay.
    Stephen Spielberg endorsed their song 'ET I Love You,' but Columbia Records refused to release the single because they did not want it competing with Neil Diamond's 'Heartlight.'
    The sound effects for 'Pac-Man Fever' were recorded off a machine in a deli near the studio; if you listen closely, you can hear a customer ordering a sandwich in the background.
