the Polar Dunes
the Polar Dunes was a short-lived PopRock combo that KMD lent guitar and vocals to and included Michael Oakley and Leanna Fugate (ex-members of Atlanta bands the Silent Kids and Georgia Fireflies) and Jennifer Kraft Leavey (of recently reunited Atlanta band Catfight!).
Luigi features Brian Fletcher, Scott Rowe and Johnny McConnell -and sometimes Jeff Holt. They created two critically acclaimed full-length CDs and could potentially do another - the band went their separate ways with a handful of new material as yet unrecorded.
KMD as Queenie Wheatstraw, drummer for the Telepathics
the Telepathics was a trio that performed Gories covers. Members included Shonali Bhowmik as Precious Wheatstraw (guitar/vocals) and Brandon Smith as Cognac (guitar/lead vocals)
Ultrababyfat, first known as Babyfat, was built on the songwriting of KMD and childhood friend, Shonali Bhowmik. Over the years the band featured an ever-changing rhythm section that included bassists Laurie Garner, Joy Howard, Leigh Jeffries, David Chase and Jeff Holt. Drummers that have played with KMD and Shonali include Mauricio Carey, Dan Anoff, Rodny Uberroth, Jody Bilinski, Brian Fletcher and Jeff Sullivan. Pictured here is the line-up that included Britta Phillips on bass and Shane Sanders on drums.
