About This Gig
From Bart Mendoza on Che Underground: The Blog: "A classic 1985 flyer for JP’s (previously the Syndicate) with Everybody Violet. The club didn’t last long, but there was no shortage of great shows there — Jimmy was always pretty happy to let you put a bill together! The Fan Club was led by Roddy Bogawa, previously with the Odds. The Nephews, featuring Tim Ellison, are impossibly underrated. I mean, he even had one of his songs covered by Rocket From The Crypt! I believe his most recent gig was something I put together at Lestat’s with Dave Humphries, and if so, I can vouch he’s still an amazing performer. As with the Answers, I would love to see a box set of The Nephews work. (Fully annotated, of course.)"
