« City on Fire | Main | Ludlow Laid Low Redux: Clayton Patterson Looks Back »

October 29, 2015



I kinda knew Michael when the store was called Record Runner many years ago. O'Henry's was across the street and many of us would go there to drink. Rick was the bartender, IIRC it was one of the few, if any places to get Guinness on tap in the city. (It's been a while…) Cornelia St. was at one time always a good shot at getting a parking spot when venturing in.
I went to the same high school as many of the WH guys.

I knew the other Winter Hours members a bit more, Carlucci was a few years older than me.


Michael Carlucci was a profoundly decent and honorable human being, a gentle soul and a kindred spirit who did much good for everyone who was fortunate enough to meet him and get to know him. It was truly one of life's biggest privileges knowing him and being able to call myself his friend. His contribution to the New York pre-punk and punk scene is truly monumental and much, much greater than anyone can imagine. He also knew more about the American (post-Velvets) underground scene than any person I have ever met. My sadness is immense.

Rest in peace, my friend; you will NOT be forgotten.
