Later,  I joined “Steppin Razor” an all girl reggae bans who toured the mid west and played at  Harlem World in opening for Yellowman. (I played bass ) .

Then back as a front person for Grade A, who played in New York and Belgium, with James Romberger pictured here (below) and Greg Van Cook on guitar.

I’ll post more about this  later. Still love the Clash and the Slits.


New photos for Publishers Weekly Interview.

Took some pictures with James Romberger today for an interview with Publishers Weekly.  So glad to be bring Seven Miles a Second back into the public view. With James Romberger and David Wojnarowicz’s work  to promote, (and my color) it’s always something to be excited about.  The new version looks great. It is finally done as conceived, the scale, color and printing are all just right. I believe the story remains relevant and important. It is coming out on the Fantagraphics Imprint and they have been great about letting us have things the way we wanted them to look.
