It was 32 years ago today that The Amazing Bolts played our very first gig. Corky and Hot Dog called to wish me a Happy Anniversary, Dodge was apparently taking a nap and soundman/mechanic/muse, the mysterious Teenage Eddie is laying low until Summer. We were quite a crew and still all get together occasionally to bash out some tunes, generally a bit slower than the old days. At the beginning of the year in Florida we assembled, practiced for an hour, wrote a new song and wound up doing three gigs in three nights. To this day we have bonds that will never be broken, are closer than most brothers and unbelievably are all still alive. I love you guys and can't wait for the next time we get to play!
Here's a taste of the band at the start, the source is a cassette from the live board mix.

that was 32 years ago? very impressive. Plus a great song choice. Nick Lowe is way more sophisticated than Louie, Louie or Wild Thing.
