Jim Cummins was a veteran of the same Langley/Surrey/White Rock scene that spawned the Shmorgs and Monitors. An aspiring fine artist, he also designed gig flyers for the Mount Lehman Grease Band (which included Art Bergmann) in the mid-1970s. By 1977/78 he was devouring the new punk records coming out of New York and London along with his pals Art Bergmann of the Shmorgs and John Armstrong of the Monitors.
