Avatar 🗿 9:23pm Motobro:

Yes indeed.
I also, somewhere have a couple of WFMU pens (swag) that have moving characters; one pen is of the Skynrd plane crashing.
I have another with Stiv Bators crossing the street and the cab is the moving feature.
Yes, WFMU swag…
  9:23pm Androu B.:

There was a once popular nightclub in Trenton, NJ, called City Gardens that constantly booked hardcore acts. There were certain acts that became so popular with the hardcore crowds that they were booked constantly on a monthly basis. The Dictators was among those acts. I have "punkcards", basically promo flyers printed on color postcards, from the 90's, announcing shows headlined by a host of hardcore "elite". The club was also lucky enough to book some of alt-rock's emerging stars like Soundgarden, Faith No More, RHCP, and Nirvana.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm medson:

@Harry Yeah. Funny story he was also skimming money off of the merch that tour as well. Blamed the rookie. Typical Mike Sin.
Avatar 9:24pm Harry Parmenter:

wow that is some good stuff, AB. And the swag??!!!
Avatar 9:24pm Soulstealer007:

Amazing Androu
  9:24pm Jay Levine:

My brothers were at the show where these guys opened for the Dictators.

Avatar 🗿 9:26pm Motobro:

I remember City Gardens.
  9:27pm Androu B.:


I heard mention of it on another chatboard. Will eventually get a chance to go back to it in the archives.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm medson:

@Harry It was all live recordings from the sound board at City Gardens. Ex employee who ran the board was the DJ on the Drop In yesterday.
  9:32pm Androu B.:

There's a whole bunch of those KBFH records kicking around on Discogs.

999 at the Fast Lane is Assbury, circa 1982. On stage for the encore, homicide and my girlfriend (all banged up fell into the drum kit) they loved it and kept on going.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm medson:

JT was a big loss. Would like to see what he’d be playing/creating today if he made it out alive.

Made it home! Hey Mom, Clark, Androu!
Avatar 🗿 9:53pm Motobro:

David, 40 years ago I’d have to play with wires hooked up to my boom box to get the signal. I lived about 45 miles away from PRB, but 1 mile to FMU transmitter.
Used to park right next to the FMU transmitter in my windowless race van, and listen and make out with my girl at the time.
Avatar 9:54pm Soulstealer007:

Thank you Harry.....This was a GREAT show!!!
