When Mark DesJardins left Titan in 1979, he formed a rock band called "Twister" with Steve Higney (vocal), Morrow Scot-Brown (bass), Ian O'Donnell (drums) and Glen Wenham (guitar).  When Steve Higney left, Mark brought his friend Bill Briand, a blues singer/harp player into the band. The band became a blues band so Mark changed the band's name to "The Water Street Blues Band".  They toured the maritimes until Mark left for Toronto in 1980 to join Dana Westall (former Titan bass player) in a band he was in.  

(There's more to the story.)
