The group formed in high school in January 1964. About six months later they went to Century Custom Recording Service in Eugene and cut two great original instrumentals, “X-Termination” and “Wild Hare”.
You can find both on Youtube, but for some reason slowed down by roughly 10%.
July 1964 Register-Guard article states “the selections are two of ten [original songs] the X-terminators composed by ear, since none of the boys read music for the instruments they play.”
With two of the members going to college in the fall, it’s unlikely the band stayed together much longer.
