I saw the Buzzcocks play live at Toad's Place in New Haven many years ago.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt Fiveash:

Mike, there's yet another, slower version of Memo From Turner that I have on a Beggars Banquet sessions bootleg. It's killin, might be my favorite version.
  10:35pm Motobro:

Mike do you have access to Adam & the ants “Derk Wear White Sox” album? Some great music on there, PlanNine Fail, Car Trouble, The Day I met God...
  10:53pm steveL:

Heaters from Grand Rapids?
  10:54pm steveL:

Sunshine and the Rain: How can they not be the next big thing? Really?! Everything I hear is uniquely flawless, whatever that means.
Avatar 11:01pm herb.nyc:

Los dB's! Am reading Stamey's vg "spy in the house of loud". Also, my first Maxwell's show had Don Dixon headlining, and he sang "Bad reputation". Ted Lyons opened. 1984? 85?
Avatar 11:03pm twinoak170:

Karen Carpenter passed away 2/4/83, 36 years ago.

Van Duren rocks. I have a fanzine single you'd swear was a Big Star outtake.
Avatar 11:16pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

This show is for winners.
  11:17pm Bluesman:

Dig that J-L’Coque tune. Windian Records continues to put out some cool stuff!
