The Cookies commenced in 1979
The group featured Ken Custer (guitar), Tom Van Dyke (bass) and Diamond Jim Tansley (drums).
With the help of manager Joe Harris and producer Frank "Rat Bastard" Falestra
the band quickly made a name for themselves in the South Florida music scene.
In 1981 Ken Custer left the band and soon after Michael "Twee" Tansley fulfilled the guitar duties.
In 1983 the band moved to Los Angeles and shortly after had suspended their live performances.
After a long hiatus, in the late 90's the original lineup Ken, Tom and
Jim got back together in Los Angeles and recorded about 18 songs.
Twee also contributed some guitar and vocal tracks to this project.
The band members still keep in touch and are looking forward to the day when they will record again.
