BROCAS HELM Celebrating 25th Anniversary

BROCAS HELM, the epic metal cult legend, began celebrating its first 25 years on October 1 at the site where it first unleashed relentless metal mayhem — the club formerly known as Mabuhay Gardens, Club 443. BROCAS HELM strives to bring the revelry to as many of their fans as possible: The October 1 show was only the beginning of a celebration which will culminate in a European tour (details to be announced). Hailing from San Francisco, BROCAS HELM is comprised of original members Jim Schumacher (bass), Bobbie Wright (guitar/vocals), and Jack Hays (drums). The band — formed in 1982 — has also included guitarist John Grey, who played on the first BROCAS HELM demo tape (included as bonus material on the re-release of their first album, "Into Battle", on Eat Metal Records) and guitarist Tom "T-Bone" Behney, who played on "Black Death", BROCAS HELM's second album (1988).
