i moved to memphis in 1991, even though i had been going to the antenna for a couple of years for shows and hitting up cheapskates for my skate needs. it was quite a new world, leaving my parents\' house and being able to get out and do all kind of crazy shit on my own.
one of my fave shows ever was jawbreaker playing with econochrist at the antenna in 1990. and knowing econochrist was a LR band i knew those folks knew how to rock.
long story short, it always seemd that the LR folks had their shit together, the memphis kids just seemed to play it by ear. i mean you don\'t see a memphis docu from the time now, do you? there are some sketchy videos floating around from the time in memphis but nothing cohesive.
oh and memphis now has the mtv reality drama soap opera shit on mtv, five dollar cover. it makes me fucking embarrassed to ever have called it home and that i was in memphis bands....at least LR had that gangster docu on hbo or whatever it was. fuck memphis (even though i spent most of the 90\'s playing in bands and booking shows there) viva la little rock.
