Many here on the "bored" are probably neither old enough nor interested enough nor geographically located in a position where it had any resonance. For those however that are like me and sort of kind of kept tract even just a bit the link below just continues with that crazy story.

    I loved the Palladium and the Lime light. Oh the debauchery of the 80's!

    Perhaps stick to what you know best in the Psychoactive Drug Thread

    From "Booger Sugar" to Big Al. Wow!

    Say hello to Justin Townes Earle. I'm sure he'll tap the glass with you.

    You and I are mature adults. We can enjoy a good time. I do, however, sort of kind of, wish that you not invite our buddy Richard (Pryor) anymore. He can be dangerous.

    Got turned on to that at a couple of early Dead shows. Cannot remember the dates or venues. Strong stuff. A bit too much for my tastes.

    We were big fans of and saw live just about all of those bands you mentioned plus from UK XTC, Gang Of Four, Gen X, Wire, PIL, The Slits, Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Jam, PFurs, The Damned, Graham Parker, Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Siouxsie, Buzzcocks, The Cure, Magazine, Joy Division, US acts Devo, Stray Cats, B-52s, Pere Ubu, X, Modern Lovers, Pretenders (UK&US) and our local NYC based faves Richard Hell, Dolls/David Johansen, James Chance, Bush Tetras, ESG, Liquid Liquid, Dead Boys, Johnny Thunders, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Mink Deville, Tuff Darts, Robert Gordon, Patti Smith, Suicide and of course Blondie, The Cramps, Television, Ramones and Talking Heads.

    Remember another Athens band Pylon?

    It was hard to keep up back then but we tried!
    It was hard to keep up, but a lot of fun to try. Yep, remember Pylon, not Athens based, but The Swimming Pool Cues, Let's Active, Rubber Rodeo and early 10,000 Maniacs spring to mind. We also agree about the Peruvian Marching Powder.
