Mikey Wild the Mayor of South Street. (who very sadly died in May 2011) was a Punk Before You Were Punk, Punk. Mikey was a legend and you could usually find him at the Italian Market or South Street. I wish I had bought a few of his superhero inspired art pieces now. These two tapes I believe are from early to mid 80’s – one is a live solo tape and the other is an early demo from Mikey Wild & the Mess. For more on Mikey check out the documentary – I Was Punk Before You Were… (Youtube links below)
Half Japnese from a WKDU Band Bash on August 15th, 1987, that was on the top of a Drexel parking garage. More Fiends and Honeymoon Killers opened for them. It was the show were someone walked through a glass door. Besides from that it was a great crowd and all the bands were amazing that day. Found this on Archive and I had to share it. This is just the Half Japanese set.

Bunnydrums reunion show from 2006 at World Cafe Live.
The summer of 2006, Frank Marr and I started to play live shows again with Marc Laurick (bass; 9 Fireman 9, Certain General, King Britt, Byard Lancaster), Howard Harrison (guitar; Martin Bisi) and Michael Mongiello (drums; Scareho). It was Marc Laurick that engineered the return of the band to play live again and we continued to do shows for about another ten years, until Marc’s untimely passing away. In that period, we shared the stage with the Bush Tetras, Certain General, Pure Hell, Richard Lloyd, Stan Ridgway, Note Killers and others. These shows were a lot of fun to play, at one-point Marc arranged to have the great avant-garde saxophonist, Byard Lancaster to sit in with us which was a trip. Greg Davis, Bunnydrums’ original bass player and Joe Ankenbrand (drums), unfortunately, were not available to participate in this reunion. – from the Last Day Deaf interview
