Universal Togetherness Band

While passing through the Columbia College cafeteria in the spring of 1979, Chicagoan Andre Gibson spotted an engineering department flyer announcing a search for bands to serve as specimens for aspiring recording majors. With studio time at both Universal Audio and Zenith/db hovering at around $125 per hour, free recording sessions were too good for Gibson's extracurricular group, the Universal Togetherness Band, to miss. Drawing membership, from a few chapters in Gibson's life, Universal Togetherness Band was comprised of identical twins and Illinois State alums Fred and Leslie Misher on bass and guitar, Andre's younger brother Arnold on drums, and fellow Columbia student Paul Hannover blowing the harmonica and tickling the 88s.
