Images from my time on the 'zine staff in 1980-82; local and touring bands onstage and backstage during interviews, portraits of friends and random strangers, photos from the clubs and the alleys of pre-gentrification Chicago. An inside look at a time and place that was gone before most even knew it existed; this series is a tribute to an idea, and to the friends who never made it to the other side.
