PHOTO HINTS: Molly (Kaman) d'Eath
is roping pics into albums called '80s' People;' and '80's Flyers.' Please add your pics under the PHOTOS
tab first instead of inline in threads or comment windows so we can rope 'em all into that!
started his blog thing on March 28,
just over 150 people have showed up to this impromptu whatever it is. Steven Pratt,
who drummed for Indy hardcore band Poison Center
, is starting his own HC era memoir. Stephen Lee Canner
, of Too Cool
is bringing us tales of the seamy underbelly of glam when glam was a bad word. John Barge
has been wracking his mind to bring us news of Rock for No Reason
. Others, notably Burd
, Dave Fortney
, and Phil Reavis

All of us together on here have wasted an estimated man-year of work and our wives, husbands and children are still worrying about us. Keep up the good work!

Here's some ideas for more topics:
WQAX, Second Story, housemates, specific bands that aren't on the site, specific bands that ARE on the site (I'm looking at you, April, James, Joby, and Clark), street dances; Gulcher, Schoolkids Records, and the first wave of punk bands; the last days of the South Side of the Square; The Allen Building, The Runcible Spoon; 'zines and papers (Tussin Up, Boredom, Micky's Pink Butthole, Blow It Off, The Ryder, etc)...
