Before there was a band called “It Really IS Rocket Science”, there was a band called the “Lost Girls”. Made up of Tsika, Glycerin, Kpau, and Sashiko – they were music students at university who wanted to go professional. Kpau drummed, Glycerin on lead guitar, Tsika on bass, and Sashiko on keys with her gravel voice handling vocals – they weren’t doing badly but they weren’t breaking even in Los Angeles. As it got rougher, they decided to head to the Pacific Northwest where small punk and metal bands seemed to be more appreciated in the multitude of small clubs.

A few months after that move is where the opening pages of the novel series “It Really IS Rocket Science begins when a rocker-in-exile named Blar encounters one of the band in a Portland, OR snowstorm.

When I was writing the stories, for my own amusement I used RB3 to construct the characters in their various garbs and phases and created some videos. I like to play the videos in a corner of my screen while I write. Here’s one of the Lost Girls band – they’re in Portland just before the story begins.
And yes, it’s raining outside the club.
