The Penetrators at Western Audio recording studios in Kearny Mesa, May 15, 1980. "Need good personality art," reads the photo assignment sheet. Standing in the back of the room are Gary Heffern, Chris Sullivan, and Jim Call; Chris Davies and Dan McLain sit in the foreground. At the time of this photo, only Chris Davies earned a living playing an instrument (guitar). Heffern worked for the phone company, Sullivan at a radio station, and Call managed a theater in P.B. (where McLain sold popcorn).
