A weekend in November 1979 with the Colors opening
(this one hung on the CBGBs wall until the bitter end)
A weekend in February 1980 with U.S. Ape, The Drongoes, Ronny and the Jitters, Swinging Madisons (Hey Kristian!) and The Ozones!
The only recording I could find of us covering "Re-Make, Re-Model" by Roxy Music. We loved doing this as an encore...hi energy! And this is a super lowwwww fi recording. I think someone had a cassette recorder in their purse. Or in their drink.
This weekend was craaazy - Lou Reed, Allen Ginsberg RIchard Hell, John Cale, John Giorno, Peter Orlovsky...typical right?
