well i Hoped you have a very good weekend in Detroit Rock City Me i am doing OK the only good thing i did over the weekend was to i went to the FOURTH ANNUAL LIFE-AFFIRMING ROCK N ROLL GARALE SALE put on every year by Wendy Case of the paybacks, It was a lot smaller this year as in the past but there was a lot of people search for some good rock and rool stuff mostly CD form those Britsh Maginzines also i got A copy of Butch Walker and the Let go out tonights, Southern Culture on the Skids "Liquored up and Lacquered Down, and a CD for Underground Garde Host the one and Only Kim Fowley with his 1994 CD "Bad News from the Underground" also brought a lot of rock buttons and a VHS Copy (sorry it was not the DVD copy of the Classic movie that Started on SNL Wanye World (Not the rehase Wanye World 2) nothing going on this week end, I did listen to the NPR webcast of Sleater-Kinney last DC show on Aug. 3rd to make up the fact there last tour did not stop by in detroit or not in portland for the last S-K show here it was really good as they go out on top, Even Eddie Veter of Peral Jam was the pre-show.

Also on Saturday night i listen to the Cowboys & Indies on CJAM on-line and it was a good show becase they celeabarted the 20th annitversiry of the C86 Compilation tape by the NME, some would say it was the birth of the Britsh indie music scene, band on that comalation at the time was primal scream, might lemon drops, and the wedding present among others it was a good show so if you want to know about the history and the leagcey of the C86 Compilation go to
