Deception was an obscure rock band hailing from Philadelphia, PA. They were Steve Pocoroba (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars), Mic Newsham (vocals, electric guitars, keyboards), George Metzger (bass guitar), and Bruce Naticchione (drums). Murray Rose Jr. played drums on "Song Keeps Playing". ... se/6481029

The lead vocalist, Mic Newsham, is my dad. I have a vinyl copy. If you’re still interested, we can figure out a way to get you a digital version.
