art chantrySend art chantry a message :   sf, on the other sorta loves their own. they still talk about every famous guy who ever came from there like they were genius sons. they still give them work, even. sf is a clique and they enforce that. the result is they love their members.   2007-10-28 18:56:50
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   all i know is that we had to yell at the owner of the rocket, threaten him even, for months, YEARS even, just to let us put nirvana or soudgarden on the cover. all he ever wanted to do was put tom petty or bruce springsteen on the cover. here was all this amazing stuff POURING out of local bars and he said, "it'll never amount to anything. locals bands all suck." we just bypassed him and we did it anyway. he was furious, but we sorta fired him at that point and ignored him and did what we wanted after that. thank god we did that.
by the way, that owner guy was charles r. cross, who later made a fortune with that book about cobain and nirvana. it was on the nyt bestseller chart for months. ironic. curt ended up making him rich.
he's a good example of what i'm talking about. seattle treated Heart like crap, too, until thaey became too big to ignore. it's sorta true for all the local talent up here. everybody had to leave the city to get a career at all.

ricv64Send ricv64 a message :   i don't know about that, "SF lovin their own " , most people I knew back then HATED , Just Hated, the Flamin Groovies . Max Flo was around then and he still HATES Flipper . but a good comparison between the two cities would be cool , then add LA into the mix too   2007-10-28 18:13:43
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   wow. if it's true, then the ONLY reason i've heard good things about the offs is that they were a san francisco band. the sf crowd tends to love their own. i've noticed over the years that the loyalty factor is big there.
it's not like seattle, which HATES it's own until somebody in new york city sez they're good, then they all claim they discovered them first - but, they still remember when they sucked.
seattle's is a very different attitude toward bands than sf's.
compare sometime. it's pretty interesting.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   the offs i've heard nothing but praise about. so, i can't imagine that a member of hot tune was anywhere near that band. just don't believe it. the offs were legendary. hot tuna was a joke. a stoned joke. does that guy on the poster looked stoned to you?
remember sick dick and volkswagons? now THAT was a BAND!

john seaburySend john seabury a message :   Only one comment? It's worth pointing out how the lettering is hand cut paper laid out to match the flow of the background. I think Stark did it, but there's no credit.   2007-10-27 09:28:40
