Over the past 40 years, the Freelance Vandals have been one of the most legendary bands on the Long Island music scene.  Formed in Dayton, Ohio in 1974, the band migrated to the Long Island area in 1976.  They remained active on the club and concert circuit until 1984.  Over the next  three decades the Freelance Vandals would reunite for sporadic shows; eventually disbanding for good when their drummer, Billy Cairns passed away in 2008.  During the height of the band's popularity, they opened shows for such artists as NRBQ, Dr. John and John Hiatt and received positive reviews in such publications as Variety, The New York Times and Newsday.  Mind Smoke Records is honored to be involved in the release of the band's various archival recordings.
