I met 10000 maniacs and watched them shoot one of the first videos on the beach. I walked over with Natalie. She signed my cassette of their first album. Today I wish I bought the record for her to sign. Next time Natalie tours and I going to remind her. Saw Elvis Costello, the DBs, Luna, Love and Rockets and the Church at Einstein

This has been brought up around here before, but "I'm Not In Love" is a stealth WFMU anthem. I feel like it gets played nearly once a week (either in its original form or a cover), and no matter who's playing it, it fits perfectly on their show.

Obsessed with this song. Played a cover a few weeks ago form one of Scott's premiums. Hi Sheila!

Neptune Beach Florida:

Einstein A Go Go was the official name of the club and anyone who was someone in the 1980s to about 1991 played there. It was legendary and the miracle of the club was its location and the fact that it survived in Jacksonville Florida which was a smelly industrial city at the time. There were no major colleges nearby at the time.
