With David Provost replacing Johansen in 1983, the band became Wednesday Week (named after the Undertones song), and they released their debut EP later that year. Further lineup changes followed, with Provost being replaced by Heidi Rodewald at the end of 1983, and Tom Alford joining on lead guitar in early 1984. In 1985, David Nolte (of The Last) replaced Alford, giving the band its most stable lineup. The band signed with Enigma Records, releasing the Don Dixon-produced debut album What We Had in 1987. Two songs from the album were featured in the film Slumber Party Massacre II.
Towards the end of 1987 Rodewald left, and another former Urinals member, John Talley-Jones, joined as one of a string of short-lived members before the band split up in 1990. Before splitting up they self-released a second album, No Going Back. After Wednesday Week, the Callan sisters and Nolte (who married Kristi Callan) formed Lucky in 1995 with former Mad Parade bassist Mike Lawrence. Nolte and Kristi Callan also played in David Gray's band. Kristi Callan later formed the band Dime Box, releasing the album Five and Dime Waltz in 2008.
Rodewald later formed Negro Problem with Mark "Stew" Stewart, with whom she created the Tony Award-winning musical Passing Strange. Wednesday Week reformed in 1998, and continued to play occasional live shows. Read more on Last.fm.
