The Royal Pendletons
Mike H. and J. Matthew now play in New Orleans, Louisiana's Royal Pendletons. No website at the moment, but buy their tunes!

Some pix of a show hosted at Goner
Sore Loser: the Pendletons recorded the title track to this JMM explotation flick!

The Oblivians and Goner Records
On their way to New Orleans, Mike H. and J. Matthew hooked up with Goner's Eric Oblivian. Eric released the Pendletons first single on vinyl; The Oblivians eventually recorded a great cover of "the Lleather" on their full-length title, "Popular Fav orites". In assembling the site, I found a streaming real-media based VIDEO of the song!

the Mystic Knights of the Mau-Mau
If you share our interst in regional American rock history and are in the New Orleans area you MUST ATTEND these gigs. Frequently the artists are older - part of the point is to catch these people before Old Man Time pays the final visit. If you're in the Crescent City, you owe it to yourself to make these gigs!

The Belgian Waffles
Dan Willems still gets noisy in Louisville with this long-lived free-rock band.
