I still love this band…They were really big for a New York minute, now they’ve lost their label and their on Bandcamp. But they still rock.
I started this blog many years ago in 2001, but did it on blogspot. At my peak, I was getting 10K hits a day…But several address/host changes later due to ridiculous shit from the RIAA, I landed here, focusing entirely on music that is not RIAA supported and having under 2K regular readers. But those who do come here, keep coming back and really read my site.
And the best is when “real life” musicians e-mail me to thank me for helping them get attention for a show or a label, or dedicating an album to my site, or mentioning it in liner notes. All that feels great.
I started this blog way back in 2005 at the website http://www.berkeleyplace.blogspot.com. The RIAA came after me for reasons that have been written about extensively on my own sites and in interviews I did with several news organizations. You can find them if you wanna look. Anyway, I deleted the blog. Now some vendor has purchased it. I don’t know the date I started it in 2005, but I do know the first date that I posted at this address: February 4, 2007.
That makes today my birthday. Happy birthday to me!
