It’s been almost fourteen years since the first/last Scorgies reunion @ the old German House in Rochester. This is the current home for the “I Remember Scorgies” blog. The old site went down in flames after the Bop Shop updated their website. I’m doing a few updates here and there… plugging away at archiving material from one of the most interesting phases of Rochester’s storied musical eras.
And of course, I’m still finding material to post. Of note, last year Captured Tracks released “Strum & Thrum: The American Jangle Underground 1983-1987” to much acclaim; the promo video they released included footage shown on Albany’s “Real George’s Backroom“. Circa 1985, the clip also features an interview conducted by Michael Dygert who also tried to serve as a conduit for Rochester musicians looking to break out of the Monroe County diaspora.
Great to see my old friends Absolute Grey discussing their “Twinkie Tour” on Real George’s Backroom!Still Kickin’! Click To Tweet
