Hijinks in LA

Okay, Savage Tales from my Los Angeles painting opening:

First of all, we had a serious West Coast RTH contingent present (see photo #1). Can you guess the identities of this lot?


Second (see photo #2), can you guess the identity of the blonde bloke interviewing me as part of his report on creativity? Hint: he was in a founding Goth band.


Here’s a close-up for old farts.


Correct guesses win a fabulous RTH High Five.

  1. Sammymaudlin, Slim Jade, Lady Miss Kir Royale, unknown, unknown.

    One of the guys from Love and Rockets?

  2. Who are the other two townsfolk in the top picture? Or are people still mulling over a guess?

  3. Reports are that one is usually a lurker, but the other is a regular contributor and possibly the Hall’s most unabashed fan of The Police!

    This is great, congratulations are most definitely in order, and everybody looks like Real Nice People. Dammit, this is making it harder to carry on ripping folks for gushing about the decidedly mediocre My Bloody Valentine and so forth. But carry on we must, people, carry on we must!

    I’m mighty curious who the other two are.

  5. Is one the writer who moved from Philly to San Diego when this was still a list serv? Not sure of his RTH name.

  6. No, you’re thinking of Mwall, who actually stems from the DC5 scene, where andyr, chickenfrank, HVB, mockcarr, machinery, and others first united.

  7. BigSteve

    The interviewer is David J?

  8. sammymaudlin

    I think this is Mr. Moderator. ?

    I’m going go completely out on a limb and guess that the other 2 are Mikeydread and Pudman 13

    Congrats on a successful show Mr. Jade. More importantly have you whipped up a SNSI for this week or am I doing back to back weekends?

    Correct! I was swooning and couldn’t focus on the art. But then again it’s been around the house for the last year or so. Mr. Haskins was very pleasant and rather sunny in his commentary.

    A virtual moderator!

  12. After a LONG absence, your Moderator is back with a new SNSI – probably launching a day early, before I hit the road for a long drive and a wedding. You guys have inspired me. I hear another Townsman is planning his SNSI debut in the coming weeks!

    I might send in a few themed episodes that are not timely and can be dropped in on any random Saturday night.

  14. Okay, I’m ell-oh-elling at that.

  15. Yeah, I’ve got one up my sleeve, but I’m good at taking turns.

  16. …and Wall of Voodoo.

  17. Keep ’em coming! Thanks.
