Fuzz Fest '97

My sister, Amy, mentioned in the comments section, elsewhere, that it's been ten years since my band's appearance at the Fuzz Fest in Atlanta, Georgia. For some strange reason, the media has chosen to get all caught up in that whole "tenth anniversary of Lady Di's car crash" thing, rather than this, obviously more important story. And by "important" I mean "trivial!"

Huh. Go figure. Well, I found a few pictures that Amy had snapped of MYSTIC EYES' performance that night, so I'll share them with you, gentle blog-reader.

(l-r: Me, Bernie Kugel, Scott Davison, Eric Lubstorf)

Here we find our heroes opening the set to what must've been the most appreciative audience we ever had the pleasure to play for. LOOK! There's even a spiffy "FUZZ FEST" backdrop!

Scott, poundin' the skins and keepin' the beat!

Eric, providing the all-important twelve-string jangle!

Bernie, beltin' out the vocals!

MYSTIC EYES in full flyte!

The Davison Brothers rhythm section!

Scott and Eric, from the stage. Amy got brave with the camera!

My old, $55 "beater bass." It was spray-painted purple when I got it.

Time to say "Bye-bye, Mystic Eyes!" and bye-bye to Atlanta...

What bar is that? It looks a little bit like the Echo Lounge (in East Atlanta), but I can't place it. I used to play in the ATL all the time back in the day.

Craig, YOU ROCK, and apparently you always have!

Funny how purple goes in and out of fashion...

And of course it all goes to prove that all the good bands were the old bands. Some fun memories, I'm sure!
