A big wonderful divine hello to all of you punk and punkettes in cyberspace, your own space, here in Skafish Blog space and any space for that matter!
I wanted to let you know about my new CD What’s This? 1976-1979. What a labor of loving childbirth it has been! 11 original studio recordings, 9 of which are previously unreleased dating back to August 1976, which are the first Chicago punk, new wave, alternative and indie recordings ever, a 6 panel digi pack with a 36 page booklet, complete lyrics, rare and previously unseen photos, plus liner notes by rock legends Cheap Trick. Why Cheap Trick you might quizzically question? Because they WERE there, at my very first Chicago shows, which date back to February 1976 and attended many of my shows throughout the 1970’s. They saw it all and they tell it all – like it really was – and really is!
Also, I recorded 5 new commentary tracks myself in November 2006 to set the record straight and also, tell it like it really was – and really is. You might like to hear the true story of Sid Vicious’ last public event, which happened at a performance of mine in New York, 12-78. He came to see us play with a mutual female friend – which lead to a brawl. As usual, it’s been inaccurately reported throughout the years and for the first time, you can hear about it exactly as it really happened. Since I didn’t get drunk or high back in the day and it all took place a few feet away from me, I do remember, LOL!
Check out the new website just for this CD www.skafishwhatsthis.com where you can pre-order it now. The official release date is April 1, 2008, but it’s no April Fools joke.
I hope all is well for you in your space,
