As you may know Sound Idea is no more, but Hans set up the Black Coffee meeting room and concert still take place at the venue. MDC are touring again and this is their third time. Helen took loads of great photos and when I figured out how to get copies I'll post some. The gig opened with the last performance of local boys The Unemployed who played some good early '80s UK style punk. The other bands were all loud, fast hardcore (Eating Machine, Big Rats, Control De Estado, Murder Suicide Pact) and another Portland band touring with MDC called Embrace The Kill who played grind death metal. Super night.

mdc wrote me years ago, in the 80s. seemed to be very friendly, the butthole surfers also sent me a free promo lp and a signed poster (and virtually begged for a couple of joints, but us laws being what they were then, i didn't want federal wackos hounding me, although the herb is a wonderful thind indeed). won't forget that kindness to fans.
