    • That's very cool. Chicago is a big city , too , they tell me . As far as DJ nights go , there's been one "Cramps Night" and maybe two "Ramones Nights" (Barring the Sire - sponsored one where The DJ refused to play any Ramones.) since I moved here , and Dee Dee was still in The Ramones , and Lux's death was only a rumor (Started by Joey Ramone.).

      Retraction : There was one Lux Memorial night , when there should have been several , and one Joey Ramone Memorial night , hosted by Don Hedeker and myself. AGAIN , SHOULD HAVE BEEN SEVERAL. But , over 25+ years , that is'nt much. I did see a Hallowe'en Cramps tribute band , once ,  but , The  Dyes and Matt McVader are MUCH better..... One club did a "Cramps night" in about 89 or 90 , all the DJ did was cue up a copy of "Psychedelic Jungle" , play a song , then play a song from The Dolls' second album. Repeat. Repeat.  I love both those album , even tho' most people don't seem to even like "Too Much , Too Soon", but ,I could have stayed home and did that.   I played on a Ramones tribute night , a benefit for the Leukemia/Lymphoma association. I can NOT put down anyone who played , for doing that , all were  good , but , most of them did the same seven songs , when I was knocking myself out learning lesser known Ramones songs , and songs associated with them.  It was fun , and for a good cause. Still , I went on first , and no one but the five people in the room , then , thought it mattered to show up on time. IT WAS'NT MY EGO. i WANTED TO ENTERTAIN PEOPLE.

    • Thanks John!
      We played the Cramps Tribute last year and had a blast!  We are stoked to be on the bill again this year!
      There is also an annual Ramones tribute thas is also very cool!  The challenge here is too many bands want to play it!

    • First time ever in NY! FINALLY! Anyone in NY who loves wild & crazy lo-fi Garage Punk might wanna mark their calender for this! This is their first (and probably only) time playin' in this part of the States! Taken from their Facebook event page:


      What the fuck? Who unplugged the freezer and defrosted these cretins? Ex-Texas garage punk ding dongs The Ka-Nives make a rare appearance. This ape doesn't lace up it's sneakers very often...and NEVER anywhere north of, I dunno....Cleveland? So beer up and get down!

      The Ka-Nives

      Also appearing are the home-team nice-niks: THE DIRT BIKES!

      Late take your time and come well lubricated. 


      And here's the actual event page!

    • Although this may sound like the cast from a really ****'d up tv series ... it's far from it.

      It's the line-up for a wonderfully ****'d up Rock-n-Roll show at Live Wire Lounge in Chicago!

      Saturday Feb. 8th ... THE HAMBURGLARS turn Live Wire into our personal playland to celebrate the release
      of our new 10" record.  We'll be joined by those garagerock fiends THE GOBLINS as well as a special re-union
      of the original line-up of THE LARROQUETTES!

      There'll be prizes & surprises along with a heap of artery clogging rock-n-roll!

      Live Wire - 3394 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago IL

      OOPS ! Large caps , lo siento mucho.  I got an e-mail from a friend , who's in a pretty well known band (In our fucked - up circles.), and his other band was playing , here.....  I asked him if he were sure the venue was in Chicago and not the suburbs (It's name was the same as a distant South Suburb.).

      I WAS'NT ABLE  to go , anyway , because I had to meet my Girlfriend at the airport early the next morning. It turned out the venue WAS in Chicago , and not too hard to get to , had I been free. I looked up their website. It just mentioned the band's name in horrible type. No mention of what kind of music they play , nor their connection to a well known cult band. So , later , he told me no one came. Literally . Clubs CAN make cards and flyers just to let people know they exist. This club was walking distance from at least two record stores , and a five or ten minute drive or bus ride from several others.     Turned out they'd been around six years. Did'nt help that it was Monday , and freezing out , but , that's why it's the club's job to get the word out. 10 people , buying drinks , is still better than none.


      It is nostalgic , on my part , when we , the fans , did'nt have to do all the work , THEN , get hit with a "Service charge" , y'know ?

      I REMEMBER when you could call a club , reach a real person , ask about a show coming up. If they knew what kind of music it was , and they generally did , they'd tell you. Or , if you  got an answering machine , there'd be a recording of the bill , each night, and a rough approximation of what kind of music to expect. If I were 21 , I might go see more of these bands I've never heard of , but , I'm sort of past that. Oftentimes , there's a reason I WOULD'NT HAVE HEARD OF 'EM.


      I contacted The Sonics' website , to see what shows , besides the ones you and I are going to , were coming up. There was no mention of any shows after last November. I left a message about it. I was polite. But , I'm thinking out loud , why does the band's website not have their upcoming gigs listed? They sent me an e-mail , and were also very polite , saying the website is in mid - overhaul , and , for now , upcoming dates are on their Face Book.    I failed to ask , have you seen The Sonics ? H0 - 0 - 0LY FUCK !!!!!! John
