Neglected Youth forms
Paige Hearn (vocals), Jon Sumrall (guitar), and Markley Hart (drums) form the Little Rock area's first punk band, managing to play only one show--a battle of the bands in Jonesboro--before disbanding.
Paige and I grew up down the street from each other, carving curbs and generally getting into trouble. Paige, Markley, John and Jason had just formed Neglected Youth and were going to play a gig at a skate contest in Jonesboro. I was a freshman in college and had gotten one of those credit cards that we all got on our first day of registration so Paige asked me to use it to rent a trailer to carry their gear to the gig in Jonesboro. We drove up there and arrived late and Neglected Youth played at some armory to a bunch of rednecks who didn't know what to do with them. On the way back the car pulling the trailer broke down at 3am. We ended up skating in the middle of the freeway until a state trooper stopped to tell us he didn't think that was such a good idea. I think Markley's dad came and picked us up.//
