    Originally named Paradox then Dredlox until Mark Vasquez and LL Cool Kevin Horton joined the band and changed again to Dogz. Bassist Jason Newsted joined in 1982. He came to Phoenix with his band GANGSTER from Detroit on their way to California they broke apart while in Phoenix. Kelly saw Ak sing at his high school talent show. Singing "The Goodbye Girl". One Summer they were in the same summer school class. Kelly asked if wanted to try out and it was on. We called him the "2 weeker" since it was his trial period. AK sang Judas Priest better than Rob on his best day back then. Erik A.K. arrival was in 1983. Ed Carlson was to follow in '83. Taken from a local rival band called 'Exodus' (not to be confused with the thrash metal band of 'Bonded by Blood' fame). The band renamed itself Flotsam and Jetsam after writing a song inspired from a chapter of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Two Towers. Hence the unheard song "Flotsam and Jetsam".

    The band made its live debuts in local clubs which would allow them eventually to play with bands such as Megadeth, Armored Saint, Alcatraz, Malice, Exciter, Mercyful Fate, Riot, Autograph. Flotsam and Jetsam released two demo tapes in 1985, "Iron Tears" and "Metal Shock". We created our own video Hammerhead from the Metal Shock demo. We taped it in Jason and Ed's apartment living room. From there we made a live video from the infamous Bootlegger in Phoenix. Those combined with the demos enable us to get on Metal Massacre 7 the precursor for the acclaimed release of "Doomsday for the Deceiver".
