The Cast Iron Canaries were an exceptional band from Santa Cruz (and later San Francisco.) They sounded a lot like The Damned, had a charismatic frontman named Tony, were great guys and super fun to hang out with. Sometime around 1992ish they managed to record this fantastic 4 song demo. If it would have fell into the right mits I am certain these guys would have gotten rich and famous and done a lot of choice blow with famous assholes.
One night I was drunk and ambling through the tenderloin and I saw Tony and Jim waiting in line to see the Jesus Lizard. They asked if I was going to the show and I replied that I was way too drunk and broke to go. Tony insisted I see The Jesus Lizard and bought me a ticket. It was really nice of him to do and I think I repaid the gesture by getting even drunker and getting kicked out after throwing up on some girl's hair. She had nice hair.
Anyways, Tony, Jim, and/or Dave, if you should stumble upon this post, I love you guys, and hope you are all well, and safe, and happy.
