oakland bike nite tonite.

as a kid with a buzz cut, i ended up with this tape one day. my tape player had 4 speakers and i drew all over it with paint markers trying to be like gonz. the tape must have been a friends older brothers hand me down. rich hilkey most likely. this was in north eastern indiana and the tape was a radio shack copy. it was 1988 or 1989. the cassette, faded, stretched, and chipped on one corner was played back to back with a ramones tape that had to have came from the same friend... i played them over and over... in the car, i waited for it to come on the radio. i never knew and i didnt understand. i couldnt stand anything on the radio as it all sounded the same and gave me no thrill. musics gnarly. you either get it or you dont.
