Replacements at Maxwells circa 84?  Photos by me. I really gotta buy a negative scanner.

It’s your band; you wrote the songs; you get to decide what to call it. We get to decide if we want to show up or not.

In celebration of this auspicious event, I present the very ‘Mats-centric chapter of my first novel, over at Scribd.
