About This Gig

From show writeup on Strange Reaction (defunct):

By this time my Mom was pretty lenient with me going to shows, as long as an adult was taking me (I was only 16 at the time), and it didn’t affect my school work, or anything else. So, a friend of mine Randy Clark, who was 26 at the time, offered to take me. Randy was the guitarist for a local alternative/punk band called Weasel Music. He also played in my band Cold War. We did a two-song demo with the tracks “Ritchie Dagger’s Eye’s,” and “Ronny the Clown.” His band mate Chris Wahl played drums on the demo. Wahl was also a member of the Flesh Eaters at this time. I can’t remember the bass players name, but he was real good guy.

Anyway, Randy gets to my place around 7:30 pm – 7:45 pm, comes in says “Hi” to the family, and we leave for the Country Club. The place is packed outside, the parking lot behind the Country Club is completely full, and so we park across the street behind a bank. Once we get in we find a table to sit at, and we watch as the Mau Mau’s set up. I think there may have been a band that we missed prior to the Mau Mau’s, but I’m not sure who it was.
