Album Notes
In 1980, when the legendary Syracuse-based new wave/power pop group The Flashcubes disbanded, three of the four original members (Gary Frenay, Arty Lenin & Tommy Allen) set out on their own with a new sound and a new name; Screen Test.

In their six years together, they opened shows for U2, Bryan Setzer, Graham Parker and Marshall Crenshaw, toured extensively throughout the Northeast, appeared on MTV’s “The Basement Tapes”, and released two singles, three EP’s and a full-length cassette-only LP, SCREEN TEST 1986.

In the years since they broke up, bassist Frenay has become a successful solo act, with three CD’s released nationally and two SAMMY Awards as the area’s best songwriter.

Guitarist Lenin moved to New York City in 1991, touring internationally and recording with ex-CBS Records act, Paul Collins & the Beat, before returning to the CNY area in 1995, where he now performs regularly with Frenay as Frenay & Lenin (who won a 1999 SAMMY Award for ‘Best Acoustic Act’), and as The Neverly Brothers Band and The FabCats.

Drummer Tommy Allen left the CNY area in 1986, first for New York City, then to Malibu, CA in 1991, and finally back to NYC in the late 90’s. He toured internationally with Robin Beck and Paul Young (appearing with Young on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Tonight Show”) and has worked extensively as a record producer for such acts as The Sighs, Kara’s Flowers, Chris Von Sneidern, Will Lee, Mark Hudson, The Raspberries, The Choir and many others.

In the 21st century, they have begun to perform live again at select shows throughout the Northeast

Frenay & Lenin were inducted into the SAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2006, and, with Tommy Allen and Paul Armstrong, as The Flashcubes in 2012.

Also in 2006, a CD of their recordings, Inspired Humans Making Noise, an anthology (1980 - 1986), was released in Japan by Airmail Recordings. That album was rereleased in the US on Northside Records in 2015.
