HyperActive Youth First Gig Flyer

September 8, 2010

Yes, I found my old collection of flyers – I’m going through them to see if there’s anything worth keeping. My current thinking is that the cool ones will make it onto the web and then hit the recycling bin. This flyer is from the first Hyper-Active Youth gig. This was a pretty exciting show […]

Cannibalized in Autumn: First Gig Flyer

September 4, 2010

I found this flyer of the first and only gig I played with Cannabalized in Autumn. This was one of my first bands and we only played cover songs; songs by the likes of the Ramones, Joy Division and Iggy and the Stooges. We also threw in a cover of Minor Threat and Something I […]

Rock Against Racism

July 15, 2010

RobSlobAnarchy found this flyer for a show we (Speakeasy) did almost 20 years ago – to quote My Dog Popper, “we’re old, we’re fat and we’re slow…” – thanks to Equalizing-X-Distort at CIUT radio for digging this up 🙂 Speaking of My Dog Popper, where can I get a hat like this?

Scream reunion show

January 5, 2010

I thought Christmas was pretty good this year when my brother got me both of the Wool CDs: Budspawn and Box Set. I lost my copies of two of the greatest releases ever. Now, the news gets better as Rob Slob tells me Scream played a reunion show at the Black Cat. You can learn […]

A look at the Speakeasy Calendar

September 23, 2009

I found an old journal that I used for a co-op term in college. Other than the work notes, I kept some notes on what the band was up to. The band was Speakeasy and this was a pretty good time in our lives. You can see how busy we kept: Band practices together Gig […]

The Bad Pixels Help the Beatles in Honor of the Beatles Rock Band

September 12, 2009

In honor of the Beatles Rock Band launch this week, the Bad Pixles would like to offer their Help in making this a successful launch! The Bad Pixels were a lot of fun and now I think I’m repeating the refrain “help me if you can I’m feeling down” as the Bad Pixels are geographically […]

Bokonon: Robo’s Songs

August 28, 2009

Check out these two songs I found on one of the hundreds of audio cassettes I’m wondering what to do with. These are a couple songs that Robo wrote in what I think was the year 1991. We started to record them in my basement but had to move out to the garage to finish […]

The Bad Pixels are Blowing in the Wind

August 26, 2009

Let’s zoom forward about 20 years from Hyper-Active Youth to the Bad Pixels. This was a band we put together at Alias to play at the annual holiday party. For the Bad Pixels, I traded in the bass for some drums – it was pretty fun! We played a bunch of cover songs, one of […]

Hyper-Active Youth: Static (Digitally Remastered)

August 25, 2009

This one is for Les! I dusted out the dust and found the Hyper-Active Youth cassette we called Static. Hyper-Active Youth was one of my first bands and they now have a myspace page: I think this was 1986 and I would be surprised if I have listened to any of this between now […]
