Broken Up - Confirmed: Jan. 6, 2016 (Archived)
Our manager at the time billed us as two bands. As the Mysterians, we dressed up in long monk-type robes with pointed hoods to cover our faces. The Viscounts would play the first set and then disappear and then reappear as the Mysterians. Also some of us would switch instruments to throw off the audiance.
We almost got caught one nite when some other rival band members caught on. We had to make a quick get away down a fire escape as the audiance then discovered the hoax and were going to do the band in! I think we only played 3 gigs as the Mysterians.
Terry Coan, March 2003
The Viscounts were formed circa 1958 by Terry Coan, Gene Gillott, Steve Bonar, and Earl Davies. The name "Viscounts" is credited to Earl Davies (Guitar). We were a weekend garage band that played rhythm and blues based rock and roll. We played all the local clubs, high schools, and community centres around the lower mainland until 1967.
