Misc. stuff

I heard from Madelyn Boudreaux via email. I didn't know her back in the day, but we knew a lot of the same people. Anyway, she has some pics of the Zen Bastards and some other stuff that she's going to try to scan. She also might have some old recordings that she can dig up, including one by the Rocking Shapes, which would be very cool to hear. She's living in Utah and she's got a site: madelyn.utahunderground.net . Here are two pics from her site of a 1988 Zen Bastards show (the one that was at that big old white house on Main Street in the garage). I think Dana and Kelly's band opened up? Maybe somebody will recognize somebody.

She was talking about The Armpit, which was a barn with a big smilie face painted on it by Abbeville somewhere. I mistakenly was thinking of a different place. Does anybody know the name of the little bar that was in the industial park toward Scott where Zen Bastards played?

Speaking of Zen Bastards, check out this photo of Donny S. and Mirielle sporting the dual ZB shirts at a school dance. Awwwww! (Donny is probably going to kick my ass)

The Wild Side 

Steve Wilkerson (one of the original Rinky Dink owners) has a new musical project called Pierhead Jump that you can check out here.

Here's a shot of the skateboard that supposedly inspired the club's name:

Does anybody know how to get hold of Cheryl Palmer (Mary Cheryl)? She was always taking photos of bands back in the day, and I'm sure she's probably still got tons.
