Pylon began with Randy Bewley and Michael Lachowski in 1978.
Curtis Crowe overheard the two University of Georgia art students practicing in their room and brought his drums down to join. After trying out several other art student friends for lead vocals, the trio finally found former classmate, Vanessa Briscoe Hay, recruiting her in early 1979. After fulfilling a lifelong dream of Bewley and Lachowski, being written up in Interview Magazine, Pylon decided to keep going as long as it was fun. Over the years, Pylon has opened for bands like The Talking Heads and The B-52s, toured globally, and had their song “Crazy” covered by R.E.M. In 2009, Bewley suffered a heart attack and passed away. The band decided to disband for good, each embarking on various solo and group projects.
