Ah, the late, lamented (by me, anyway) Shrapnel, still one of the best live bands I've ever seen. Still remember one particularly delirious night at the Ritz, in the midst of a spectacular show, pounding on the stage with my fists and screaming "Why aren't they famous???" Had high hopes when Elektra signed 'em, but then the company went and turned them into a blow-dried and maquillaged boy band on the cover of their EP (not even a full LP) and wiped away any trace of their WW II originality...but I still have my copy (played twice, I think), the 45s, and two t-shirts, also designed by Arturo Vega. Thanks for the memories!


Pop Quiz: Who is that cover girl?

Alex in NYC

I want to say she's a SoHo Weekly staffer....maybe Lesley Vinson?


Bingo, Alex!

great post on a dumb article


I used this article as a bible for the next few years of my life. The issue came out a day before my 18th birthday. I was never the same.


THANK YOU SO MUCH! I remember this from Mom's coffee table as well (although in Seattle) and have wished for years I could re-visit. It was the first I had heard of the Heartbreakers and I wanted to know more!
