Jenni and I met at an art opening at Russell Sage College late in 1978. We had an hours-long, wine-soaked conversation about music and art, and by February, 1979 were fronting our very own band, The Dialtones. Raw, raucous, drunk and snotty, for one magical summer we were the reigning punksters of the Albany music scene.

We opened for The Ramones at JB Scotts and for David Johansen at The Chance. We almost got pummeled after a gig at Thompsons Lake Hotel. There were a lot of other gigs, most of which I don’t remember.
