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.

snake, baby
Hi David, I found your website after some random surfing and somehow latched on to some Purdue stuff. Your snake, baby photo is really great I am so glad I got to see it. It really made my day. Your comment about killing a fragmented music scene was right on. Mo and I were frustrated at the whole thing and snake, baby was a big one-finger-farewell to a dying scene that could not be sustained by one little rock band. From the looks of your website you are really busy and doing good stuff and I am really glad to see that. Cheers, Maury
