BAND AFFILIATION: We are Jeneric, Sgt. Dunbar & The Hobo Banned
INSTRUMENT: Anything rhythmic or vocal
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Depeche Mode, “Violator”
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … The Celebrant Singers. They were a traveling contemporary Christian song and dance troupe. (They’re apparently still around. Their website describes them as “musicians as missionaries.”) I think many of them stayed at our house. The first concert I ever “went to” was a Kansas concert my mother took the church youth group to while she was pregnant with me. Apparently, the place was a haze of smoke and the music was deafening, this according to my mom, and I kicked and kicked and kicked and maybe even flipped.
