FLASHBACK (LATE 70s)
Poof! AUSTIN, TX---a while ago...fresh music...Talking Heads, Blondie, Fripp & Eno...The Iranian Revolution, Jim Jones & his cynanide-laced Kool Aid---The Rockin' ReCords..."Goin' on a holiday, Guyana holiday." Chant: "Drink beer, watch bands."...& repeat. You're an Artist too at Raul's. New wave manager; Wet magazine...Huns/Norvells...happening show at avant-garde hangout, Festival Theater--Oak Lawn part of Dallas. Will Clay wails on the sax...new day...bright threads, bouncin` superballs, Boy Problems' flick...Neil X has a New Wave radio show on KUT...Punks get airplay!...Bert Crews joins the Huns, sings "The Ballad Of The Green Beret"; tosses vinyl LPs to crowd at Raul's. Tows! Snakes lair at Conans, No Quarter! ...Pinball, Pool, & Beer, chant it, Hole In The Wall--70s forward!!!!!! ContempoCulture, Sluggo, Xiphoid Process--ephemera for a new revolution...The Captain & Skylab...a twin release of Urban Buccaneer & King of the Grizzlies! They stock 'em at Inner Sanctum!...Timeless shows at the Armadillo; trippin' out to Devo--2001 towering monoliths!...Lester Bangs, cough syrup, anecdotes from the Big Apple...jammin' & stacks of punky vinyl...Lester calls the Dakota & gnaws on Double Fantasy!...Takin' a bath at the Suds Plant, PIL's Metal Box wafting volume..."You been careering..." Penning Pirate bits & passing the peace pipe...Hordes of friends once, all night automatic pilot keg parties...chattin' licks & sippin' Micks 'til the crack a dawn!...Another Raw Deal...musicians, celebrities, & wretches...Dancin' up a storm (with Gail) to the Gator Family...Do you remember Duke's Royal Coach Inn?...Sneakin' in tallboys to the premiere of Meatloaf's Roadie! ...Killer Punk flyers...Johnny Rat's got 'em all!...Premiere of Speed of Light--Genius of Brian Hansen--Who has copies of those Radio Free Europe records?...Gang Of Four at Club Foot (November 1980)--Reagan era begins! My 1980 Xmas trip to San Francisco...John Lennon just assassinated!...New Mecca West Coast...Fade....Reflect on those times...jot down some memories...Search your closets & attics for fanzines, pics, & music...COLLECT & PRESERVE ! ...
