The History section of this web site is very sparse, especially the pages from 1980, onward. With time, these pages will be flushed out with lots of photos, and the sparse text will be replaced with, ah, well - it'll be replaced. The text following 1980 comes directly from Joe Nolte. Hopefully someone out there will be "encouraged" to write me with alternate ideas about the events described...
Joe's random thoughts on the other events of the year:
Ed stayed with us long enough to do Poptopia, with Robbie Rist coming in on
drums. After that he split, and we recruited Rev. Missy Buettner (former
bandmate of Steve Tagliere [Gingersol] and Eric Jerde [Emmit Rhodes Poptopia
band]) to play bass. This is the lineup that persists to this day (mid
November 1997) - and a wonderful lineup it is.
We did some more gigs this year, but dire misfortune had begun to descend upon
me, resulting in less and less action.
We did get to play with old friends 20/20 at the Alligator (first time since
the '70's), and had some other cool gigs as well, but it seemed pointless to
do the occasional show if nothing else was strategically associated with it.
