Like most bands, the Radiators first took shape
in a garage over three decades ago. But by the close of the 80s, the Radiators moved out of the garage onto the New Orleans
music scene, becoming one of the most coveted rock-and-roll groups in the Big Easy. Serving up a gumbo of styles, the Radiators'
eclectic mix of music includes hints of R&B, blues, rock-and-roll and funk. Fledgling members include Camile Baudoin (guitarist/vocalist)
and Ed Volker (keyboardist/vocalist), who started gigging together in the 60s. Eventually, Frank Bua (drummer), Dave Malone
(guitarist) and Reggie Scanlan (bassist) joined the fold. They were initially known as the Rhapsodizers, changing their name
to the Radiators in 1978. They issued their first album, Work Done on Premises, in 1980 under Croaker Records, their own label.
Two years later, Heat Generation arrived, and the Radiators started to turn heads in New Orleans. Glenn Sears (percussionist)
was added to the lineup around the same time. Their live performances became legendary, putting on extensive shows that would
span three hours or more. Their shows were especially welcomed by Tulane University students. Their performances also became
a centerpiece for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. In 1987, after a six-year break, the Radiators inked a deal
with Epic Records. Law of the Fish arrived two years later. The year 1991 brought Total Evaporation, which was followed by
Snafu 10-31-'91. New Dark Ages came out in 1995 and Party On followed a year later. Their eponymous album dropped in 2001
andDreaming Out Loud was released five years later. In the fall of 2010, they announced on their website that they were "finally
calling it quits." The announcement came in lieu of founding member Ed Volker's retirement. A string of performances across
the nation followed, wrapping things up at Tipitina's in New Orleans. They are set to reunite in 2015 at Tipitina's for a
handful of shows.
Although their albums never quite made any lasting imprints on mainstream
music charts, they did, however, make a mark in their native New Orleans. The Radiators' discography includes: Work Done on
Premises (1980); Heat Generation (1981); Law of the Fish (1987); Zig-Zaggin' Through Ghostland (1989); Total Evaporation (1990);

It's not your imagination; they utilizefish and fish-related motifs. "Fish Head Music" is the term they used to describe their
music and their loyal fan base coin themselves as "Fishheads."
Besides fish, they are also correlatedwith masquerade
