Remember the Anthrax Club? ...
-- Thursday, January 15, 2009
Chris Daily has teamed up with the Sheridan brothers to bring us a new book about the famous Anthrax Club of Connecticut. It's ramping up in 2009 and headed to a bookshelf near you before you know it.
Remember the Anthrax Club?
Some of you may remember me and some of you will have no clue. My name is Chris Daily, and I used to do a few zines (Skate Confusion and Smorgasbord) back in the 80's, as well as a record label. The first release was a comp 7" recorded with Jeff R in the Anthrax on 01/24/1988.
The Anthrax Club was a place that we all spent a lot of time at. A club that brought live music into our lives at a crucial point in our adolescence. The bands that played there, the photos we all have seen, the flyers and the genius booking schedules…amazing.
For years I have thought about doing a book that would document the history and the excitement we all felt. 2009 brings that desire to a head. In talking with the owners, Shaun and Brian Sheridan, we agreed; a book is great idea. They are on board and pulling things out of storage. You have no idea how excited I am.
Without wasting any more of your time, I'd like to direct you to a web page announcing the project. I have spoken to a few of the old regulars but I want to document every one's experience. Please take a look at the page, I am searching for anything you may have or remember that will make the story of the Anthrax Club more complete.
I hope to hear from you soon.
As for me, I don't remember. I was age 6 in 1985. I was down with matchbox cars and Michael Jackson's Thriller album. But if you were there, hit up Daily as he's a good dude with a great idea.
Keep up with HYE?
