My 1992 in a Single Video Capsule

This video popped up after years of languishing in obscurity. It's the band Unrest, in 1992.

Shot on the roof of our Mercer Street, Jersey City shared house. Me, Marie, and Otis...we had bands staying over all the time. We had a duplex with 1.5 baths, and the setup worked great for guests.

Watching this, I remembered the time Marie and I crimped drummer Phil's hair. The Jimmy D's T-shirt I wore frequently, courtesy Jimmy D himself at his music store in Cincinnati. The crazy late nights at Maxwell's, the eternal need to be on "the list."

Looking back now, it all seems so innocent and frivolous. But fun. Lots of fun.
