Mr. Mohawk- You motherfuckers will never play here again! You're fucking banned!
And while he was ranting and raving, our new found minions were chanting our name as they exited the parking lot in their parents pick up mobiles.
Even Scott was in better spirits after that show, but after two more years of causing mayem, he finally threw in the towel. No one was really upset about this, since he was the odd man out in this group. So, we said our farewells with our middle fingers, and Todd became the new axe man of KFC.
But what about the drummer position?
Well, our buddy Raj joined us. His band at the time went by the name of None The Less. I don't remember the whole story but I think his band was on hiatus at the time, so after a few practices, he was able to gel nicely with the rest of us knuckle heads. He only played for us for about a year, but the time we had spent together was a blast. Raj was a cool guy.
I was a booking maniac at the time. So, with the help of "Book Your Own Fucking Life" I was able to put our first tour together. B.Y.O.F.L. was created by Maximum Rock and Roll. This handy little guide pretty much had every phone number and contact name to whomever was putting together punk shows in America. That three dollar investment got us twenty shows from LA to Longview, Washington and back. I think we actually profited a good thirteen hundred dollars with that two weeks, stuffed in Pauls Honda.
For the next two years though, the revolving band member door began to move. Raj was feeling the pressure from his other band, and after we played this crazy show that involved fifty plus people fighting in the pit ( Skinheads verses punks ), he said his goodbyes.
We were playing at the time when this little incident went down, and on top of that, I booked the band that brought the Nazis. So, we got red flagged by the punk rock community for a while. I actually got death threats for a good week after that show. I tried to explain my position of business and that we were not apart of this group, but no one wanted to listen.
I will go more into this story in the next posting.
