The tower

Warning: I’m about to blow your mind.  We played just three times in August of 1997: once at Tower Records in New York, and twice with Tower Recordings from New York.  You can’t make this stuff up!  Today is the anniversary of our final show of the month, at Cambridge’s Middle East Cafe.  Also on the bill was Versus.  Early in the set, we brought up local impresario and bon vivant, the late much-missed Billy Ruane to declaim “Attack on Love.”  Thirteen years later, due in no small part to his affection for Billy, Peter Wolf would join us at Hanukkah.  Would you believe it–the very next night, Metal Mountains, comprised of three former members of Tower Recordings, were our guests at Hanukkah?  Would you believe two nights later?  OK, it was two years earlier.
