25 Years of World Devastation!



In order to put a few people in sheer apoplexy of seeing two posts in the same day on my blog, I thought I would just put out a couple of Random thoughts...

2010 is going to be the Chinese year of the Tiger... Hopefully no relation to Mr. Woods.

2010 is also going to be the 25th anniversary of the greatest band that never existed, World Devastation. So heres to Herb, S'car, Spike, TMC and the rest of the honorary members of the band World Devastation. Remember, "call-out for fall-out" and "us want nuclear!"

Update: Thanks to Max for sending in a picture of the "official tour T-Shirt." I think Motel West was one of the few (if not only) BBS in the nation to go this far with its true fandom... The link to the t-shirt back side with complete (as in completely bogus) concert dates is in the comments to this post. BTW, the numbers in the parenthesis is the population of the city (at that time).

Ah yes, the 1987 "Callout for Fallout" America's tour. One of our best, and last, tours. Those were good days. I've still got a mint-condition Callout t-shirt, you can see pictures here:

Ahh, the memories.

I think I have that T-Shirt in the bottom of a closet somewhere. Alas, mine is not in mint condition, as I loved to wear it around town occasionally. The strange looks people would give me...wondering if it was legit or not.

Of course it was legit...I'm with the band! Well, sorta...

One word to say, and one word only: Owzum! Now don't be a gloppin' stoid.

Rossi means romance and...








So when's the reunion tour?

I am ready to make shirts.

After the inauguration tour, where else would we go? It would seem almost anti-climatic. However, wearing reunion shirts from a killer 80's band would be interesting...

A half dozen middle aged people walk into a Denny's all wearing an identical reunion tour t-shirt of a band no one has ever heard of. Oh, the looks...
