Band Name Origins:

  • These guys were from Sacramento, CA originally. They played locally as City Kidd, and when they changed their name, they got the idea from the streets near the old K&K music store where they bought some of their equipment. In north east Sacramento, many of the streets were named after inventors like Bell, Watt, Howe, Ethan, Fulton, Whitney, Marconi, Edison, Tesla, etc. The music store was on the corner of Cottage and Fulton, and Tesla Way was one block further south on Fulton Ave!

  • Named after the famous scientist, Nikola Tesla. Submitted by: hardrocker

On the back cover of the CD version - it says "The music on this compact digital disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to perserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of it's high resolution, however, the compact disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."
