It’s interesting what the internet will remind you of.
During some online banter on Facebook the other day, someone mentioned that a former bandmate of mine had been a classmate of his. Curious as to said bandmate’s current whereabouts, a Google search easily led me to his LinkedIn page. Within hours, we were trading emails and reminiscing.
While we haven’t discussed revisiting all of the months we spent working out our songs in his basement oh so many years ago, there is another reunion related to the late 70’s St. Louis punk/new wave scene that should not be missed if you are going to be in the area – two legendary St Louis bands from back in the day are reuniting: Raymilland and The Welders! St. Louis – based BDR Records has been fueling the reignited interest in the St. Louis scene, and will be putting more logs on the fire by releasing CD’s by both of these bands in the coming months. Be sure to check out BDR’s Facebook page to revisit the good old days!
This show is one of those rare instances that I’ll be sorry to be in LA instead of St. Louis:
Reunion concert/release party with:
and a special appearance by The Welders
This is a release party and reunion show for Raymilland. They are a legendary St. Louis post punk band that has not played live since 1981. All four original members will grace the stage and play loads of material from their about to be released retrospective. The archival release “Recordings ’79-’81” will be available at this show on CD or as a limited LP/CD package!
The Welders are a late ‘70s all-female Punk/Pop band that will have an archival release on BDR Records in early 2010. They will make a special, one time reunion appearance at this show as well. BDR Records co-presidential bands will open the show.
