Reviews continued - aka Brad Post #11

Found a few more of these digging through old 'zines.  Hard to take a review serious with emoticons, but that is how Retrogression rolled I guess.  Enjoy!

And some Somber Reptile paraphernalia thrown in for good measure.

BOB odds and ends aka Brad Post #10

Is this thing on?  Around 1993 my friends and I picked up copies of Bob’s excellent debut 7”.  We were shocked and amazed to see their contact info being listed as Lilburn.  We were in Lilburn and couldn’t believe that these guys were making this kind of music a few mere miles from us.  I had a friend in Augusta named Bobby Padgett who wanted to start a fanzine with me.  Sadly I do not have a copy of it nor do I remember what the hell it was even called.  I contacted Bob’s drummer Eric about interviewing them for our new ‘zine.  He gladly obliged and invited me over to watch them practice at his house and conduct the interview there.  I brought my pals Billy Nation (seen in the pics!) and Andrew Croke (Decayed Jesus / Gai Jin) with me, along with my trusty tape recorder (wish I still had the recording).  I snapped a few shots and asked them some standard questions.  The only part I remember is Rich said that his inspirations were disco and K.C. & the Sunshine Band.  We struck up an acquaintanceship and I later booked a few Ten Two Four shows with them.  Enjoy!
