Brent's T.V. was formed by John Denery, Chris Imlay & Virgil Shaw in 1988. Joined by Brian Keeney and Jon Quittner, they sounded like a pop punk Everly Brothers. The band set forth on a tour of laundromats and released a 7 song EP, "Lumberjack Days" on Lookout Records in 1990, and split soon after. In 1995 Lookout released a compilation of Sweet Baby & Brent's T.V. songs called "Hello Again." They reunited in January 2017 to play a benefit for the 924 Gilman Street Project.
