Narrow Adventure (1981-1983) arose from the ashes of Goat Deity's sisters Kelly and Kristi Callan and Steve Wynn (later of Dream Syndicate). After parting ways with Wynn, the Callans recruited Kjehl Johansen from The Urinals to form Narrow Adventure. The group debuted at the Troubadour opening for The Last and The Direct Hits in September 1981. Narrow Adventure continued until 1983 when producer Vitus Mataré insisted the band change their name before including their two songs, "Anyone Like Me" and "Boy You Got Me Good", on the "WarfRat Tales" compilation. The birth of Wednesday Week coincided with Johansen leaving the band.
