Formed in Seattle in 1979, after the breakup of The Telepaths, who's lineup included future Blackouts [a=Erich Werner (2)], [a=Mike Davidson], and [a=William Rieflin].

The Blackouts' lineup included lead singer/guitarist [a=Erich Werner (2)], bassist [a=Mike Davidson], synth/sax player [a=Roland Barker] and drummer [a=William Rieflin]. Shortly after their second release, the "[r=580973] EP", [a=Mike Davidson] was replaced by [a=Paul Barker], Roland's brother.

Playing their final Seattle show in August 1982, the Blackouts headed for Boston. There they met [a=Ministry]'s [a=Al Jourgensen] who produced their last release, the "[r=194274] EP". Another move, this time to San Francisco, in 1984, was followed by the Blackouts' disintegration in June 1985. By 1986, Paul, Bill and Roland had all joined [a=Ministry].

The remaining Blackout, [a=Erich Werner (2)], eventually found his way to The [a=Toiling Midgets] in 1992 which broke up in June 1997.

Lights out.
