Nikon Fm2 Guitar High-Angle 35mm Tmax 1600 Microphone Music Performance 1987

snake, baby

Whew. 1987. What a strange time that was.

The Purdue University local music scene was beginning to fragment. Old alliances were starting to splinter into stand-offishness and new sounds.

Snake, Baby were the first to use really screwed up effects and a drum machine. They only played a couple gigs - they treated it all as a big joke.

Though they may not have meant to, they actually killed the old scene completely. When I finally left Purdue nearly a decade later, local bands were still in ruins.
