MCRB - Your Lucky Number is _.
Latent Chaos - Rarities.
Band-O-Fun - The Extended Family.
Atomic Butterfly.
I also have a Shindigs(1991) and a Ya Ya's (1987)tape from Worst Layflat..

I believe I have the Bored Cops on vinyl. Tom 'Buster' Esterline had alot of material on video and cassette. Of course I have a couple of the Lizard Kings' tape

It would be nice to hear the classic W. Laf cassettes again. If anyone would care to rip them, I'm sure they'd be a welcome addition here.

About the Gum wall
Bored Cops, Bedspins, etc.

I can't seem to find any of these in my huge box 'o ancient cassettes.

Also, does anyone have the Strontium90 self-released cassette?
I still get the song "Lime Jello Fantasies" stuck in my head from time to time although I haven't heard it in years...

I keep trying to contact someone at Kroger to offer The Suadetones up to do the "Krogering" jingle... but no luck yet!

I want to wake up in the city and never ever sleep!

I'm glad I could help. Seriously, your version of "Krogering" goes through my head everytime I go into a Kroger, see a Kroger or see an add for Kroger. You know how often that happens when you live in the city that spawned Kroger and has Kroger's like Seatle has Starbuck's. For the best of everything including the ...including the...dare I go any further. It changed my life and prescription drug regement.

Thanks to this blog I've been forced (well not really) to dig through a bunch of The Suadetones memories... I put a blog up on my page with some detail about our 20+ "career"...

Zip Lock and The Body Bags! That was the band!

I visited the NoBar with some other band from Purdue as a innocent by-stander. The old band may have been a morph of Zip Lock and the Body Bags from Michigan City, IN. Tim Malot played drums (Keith Moon/ Mitch Mitchel/ Bill Bruford-esque) and Rick Ringo on guitar. We had a friend from high school that he played with (Scott Konzelmann aka Chop Shop), but he was in Boston. Tim was a scary-good drummer. He use to play Billy Cobham stuff. He had only one kick drum and would use the floor tom to mimic the double bass drum sound.

I remember Mitch had some freinds come to Muncie who were his old band (?) He played with them, they did a bunch of covers, The Oveture from Tommy, maybe? Really great stuff. I just remebered that Mitch was a guitar major who just happened to play bass. Of course I may be wrong about some of this.

Well the tree is complicated. I grew up with Mitch-bitchin. He lived 6 houses from me. We went from grade school to nearly high school together. He hung around with the wrong crowd (my hand is raised) and was sent to another school (went to his graduation with some of the bad crowd - a few stories there). Mitch is fanatastic piano player. Here's another branch-turned root. I lived next to Jeff Weiss my first year at Purdue.
