In late 1982, Olympia musician and producer Steve Fisk moved to San Francisco to join fellow Northwest ex-pats Pell Mell on keyboards. Pell MellĀ released a C-90 cassette on K in 1986, For Years We Stood Clearly as One Thing. Duckhunt was a collaboration between Steve Fisk and Pell Mell's main creative light, guitarist Bill Owen.
