For fans of rock'n'roll from the 1970s & '80s (proto punk, pub rock, glam, power pop, new wave, Killed by Death-era punk rock, hardcore, swamp rock, psychobilly, the '80s garage/surf revival, paisley underground, shoegazer, etc.).
"My first "official" show I ever went to was in 1990, and it was Teenage Fanclub with Superchunk as the opening. The best show ever was seeing Fugazi on my birthday. Nothing too mind-blowing, but I'll always remember those…"
"I'm 34, and I didn't even know how to use the internet until about 6 years ago, when I moved to Poland with my wife. Until then, I never downloaded anything. If I liked something/wanted something, I bought it at the record…"
I'm an American living in Warsaw, Poland. I'm married and have a 3-year-old son named Mieszko, who's my greatest joy in life, and who loves Rock 'n' Roll!!! Other than that I have nothing interesting to say.
