Shout outs

Ok, I've been slacking again, but the site has been updated with a bunch of info that various folks have been kind enough to send in.

Ron from Disappointed Parents sent in their myspace page. They're currently looking for a drummer.

John V sent in info on Stephie and The White Sox, The Plague, Sx Tension, Voodoo Parade, and Graveyard Rodeo. Stephie and The White Sox are doing a reunion show June 21st at Hi Ho Lounge along with legendary singer Dave Turgen from The Sluts. He also sent a cool photo of Stephie and he from 2007.

Sean Morrogh sent in info on No More Fun and Master Sleestak and The Power Crystals. Master Sleestak opened for Alice Donut at The Bayou in Lafayette back in 1992. That was an awesome show. No More Fun featured Danny Hall's cousin and skateboard legend George Brown on drums.

Douglas D sent in info on The Backbeats, Apt. B, The Limit, and The Normals. The Backbeats and Apt. B featured Vance Degeneres of The Daily Show fame. The info has been added to the New Orleans band page. Actually, the New Orleans page got so large I had to split it in half. Now there is a page for New Orleans bands A-M and a page for New Orleans bands N-Z.

Danny Dickson sent in info on Star, Nova, The Models, and Human Drama. See the New Orleans pages for info on these bands.

Steve Kerin sent in an awesome photo of Havoc from 1987. That's Mitch Reed to the right, back before he was a local fiddle master. He was a hell of a bass player. He and I both used to take jazz lessons from a weird boat captain dude. Steve also played with Smaug, Megatron Jones, and Black Bayou Construktion, among others. Scott olivier now lives in Austin last I heard. Here is his site.

Skip Bolen sent in info on The Front. The Front featured Carlos Boll of The Skinnies. I also think he owned 'Lectric Eye Records, which was one of the original New Orleans punk labels. I'm not sure if The Front was before or after the Skinnies.

Troy sent in info on Gangster, Hoax, Latem Yvaeh, Paragon, Warlock, Tolerance, and Hostage. I remember seeing Gangster on the roof of The Keg at Mardi Gras. Aw what!

Thanks to Wes Whipp for the info on Strawboss, Jivin Sister Fanny, and Sid's Ride Home.

Mucho gracias to Tim Parrish for the info on Harry Dog and the Fleas, Human Rayz, Lower Chakras, The Irascibles, and several other Baton Rouge bands and clubs. Check out his article "Rockadoozy DIY".

Thanks to Sasha R for info on Sauced. Also, she may have some Zen Bastards photos. We have a few in this gallery.

Gary Attardo sent a ton of info on Star, Lynx, White Tiger, The Models, The Red Rockers, and many other bands. Thanks!

There is a lot more stuff to add,I just haven't gotten to it yet.
