As we grow older, we tend to remember the funniest times of our life, if the most productive. This popped into my head today and got a round belly laugh going. It was mentioned on the Flipside Memorial Facebook page and with an interview I had with Razorcake fanzine.
One of their first online podcasts. I want to share the story again. The privilege of getting older is you can recite stories again and again…
This image is from Flipside Fanzine. An SST advertisement. A lot of people ask me why I did this? Defile a Raymond Pettibon image. A mustache on nun face of an album cover …?
Slip It In …. sorry guys kind of deserve what you got! At the time waiting to publish an issue sometimes out of boredom I had moments of inspiration!! I was feeling humorous … who knows what was on my mind at the time. I never heard one complaint from Raymond at all.
Henry Lawrence Garfield was offended.
SST put out a flyer stating all the people and organizations that they were against. The last on the list being LAPD and HUD! (does anyone have that in their nostalgia flyer stash?) I could never figure it out, was it me they were hating, or the character played by Paul Newman in the film Hud?
I do remember a Santa Monica show with Charged GBH. I had pee yellow hair that ran all over my shirt from going crazy before the bands. Anyway, Henry was looking for me to kick my ass. I weighed about 125 lbs. back then and stood about 5’ 4”. Luckily, I was in GBH’s backstage room and they blocked Henry’s defense movement.
