So far this site has been a total riot. Nostalgia extreme.
A couple things: anybody here have any links to John Rans, Jeff Weiss, or any of the No Bar crew? John's son Ian has an insane show on Minneapolis public television called "Drinking With Ian" (check it out on MySpace; it slays me). He also has a site cataloguing the Bob Chaos tapes, including the absolutely essential Latent Chaos chronicles: www.bobchaos.com . I've often talked with Tony Woollard about doing an archeology of the No Bar, but like a bajillion other things we discuss over an iced glass of whiskey, it remains on the "to do" list. The Muncie scene at the end of the '80's was amazing.
What about Dow Jones and the Industrials?
And, what about things happening right now? I'm old and out of the loop, but there are two really interesting current labels in Indiana (Secretly Canadian out of Bloomington, and Family Vineyard out of Lafayette). If anybody could link this site up to folks like those, that would be cool. I've had enough class reunions in my life . . . time to get with the now.
