May 2007 : Bikini Kill: added two images from the Denver gig of October 1994; added more images to the mystery photos section. Have a look and try and help us ID them!
Birdland: tweaked post-Birdland projects.
December 2006 : Birdland: added setlists for Reading and Harlow (July 1989) and Walsall (December 1989) after a taper made his original recordings available.
November 2006 : Not dead - just otherwise engaged. Lots of material to add when we can find the time. Added a couple of links!
February 2006 : I'd hoped to have an interview this time around, but after travelling over 100 miles and spending in excess of £100 (including taking an armful of the artist's new 7" for distro) for the pre-arranged face-to-face, I was told it wasn't gonna happen. Clearly, if the corpse of punk rock is to be found, it sure ain't anywhere near Olympia, WA.
As a result, I've removed the few details regarding the artist's current work from the site. If you want updates, you'll have to go elsewhere. A shame really, but then who's got the time - or inclination - to spend being snubbed by indie musicians in the upstairs room of a pub?
Bikini Kill: new recording added (Brighton, 18 March 1993), added new date (White Horse, 20 March 1993) and corrected Bull & Gate, London (moved to 3 April 1993). These facts extend the length of BK's 1993 UK tour by over a week so there are clearly more dates to be found.
Added new images for 9 October 1992 ; 4 / 14 / 15 July 1994 ; 21 October 1994 ; 5 November 1995.
Birdland: added rare interview from 1989.

Revised the "Contribute" page into something less daunting. Basically, if you know something that doesn't appear to be included on the site, drop us an e-mail.
