Three guys released the first EP ( Iridescent). We had a blast and met a lot of people. Two guys continue to play. We are about having fun at the end of the day. It is about inclusion verses exclusion.

Bill and I grew up in DC. We played in a band called the Young Caucasians in the eighties. When we were weekend warriors. We released indie rock, though some called it punk, not sure why. And we mostly paid for the indie pressings by playing the DC Go Go circuit. Oh they were so tolerant and welcoming of us. After a year, we no longer sucked and could do stadiums with them like at North Carolina A&T with Trouble, UTFO, The Real Roxanne and Shannon…. And us go-go white boys. Bless them. And in rock clubs we would play for The Ramones, The Ventures, The Tubes, 10,000 Maniacs, They Might Be Giants, Living Colour and more Bill can likely add some names. Bit of a Blur really. LOL The Reagan Inaugural we were in freezing non insulated Chevy van driving to Boston where we could record with Eban Kelly who produced New Kids on the Block. Sadly he made us sound like that, which did not really work ….for anyone.

We were part of the dc scene where every musician was a messenger. Oh, the name is a tribute to the Washington School of Color and Light. As we are from DC, we wanted to pay homage to something SO DC that was not political. Art is cool…and the name Horace and Dickey's was taken. So Color School it was. Our bass player came up with the name. But he rejoined one of his old punk bands. Which is OK because we kind of want to dance more and include more styles from all around this wonderful City. Come dance with us?? Hope you enjoy our new single.
