The band moved to New York, making their debut at CBGB in 1984, and evolved into the ever-changing Leisure Class, launching a musical and visual assault on the comfort and sanity of those poor unfortunate souls who wandered into the East Village bars and performance spaces of the late 1980's and early 1990's. Their performances featured, at various times, legendary writer Herbert Huncke, a custom-built two-story prison set, impaled goat's heads, and Abraham Lincoln.
