    Well at least one of us, as in Blowfish, made it out to the Neats show at Church on Tuesday Dec 29th...
Blowie says:
A club full of people knew this was too good to miss, even on a freezing Tuesday night. The Neats did not disappoint, they cranked up and sounded perfect. Below is a link to photos and some more details on the night. Also, we are posting our interview with the band back in 1981. It's all about the Neats this week.

    And we have created a whole page (Neats' Show Church ) of commentary and photos for you...CLICK
    Also make sure to read our Neats Interview from the Boston Groupie News # 29, December 1981....CLICK.

    More sad news to mention as well...the most wonderful Dan Salzmann...who was bass player in numerous very cool bands in early Boston scene, has recently passed away from a heart attack in Paris. Dan was The Maps, Art Yard, The Flies and Christmas...then he took off to NYC and then to Paris where he became a filmmaker (here's his site Fabulous Films for Now People And was in a really awesome band The Binoculars as well!!! Dan was such a cool guy and I am sure still was judging by his output on-line. Amazing person, I had such a crush on him back then because he was smart, funny and so talented and a great guy...RIP Dan !!!!

Now...we head into the new year...let's hope this is a truly happy healthy and excellent one for everyone!! This Friday, January 8th at Church you can find The Hudson Falcons, Joe Coffee, Welch Boys, Refuse Resist and The Damaged...
