Supremely rare footage of a 4-piece Nation Of Ulysses tearing it up without the suits and without Steve Kroner, opening for Fugazi somewhere by the look of it and right before they broke up too at a guess. An ex-Ulysses member told me Kroner went to a medical facility to do some tests for cash around this time. They also said they had no idea what happened to him afterwards or where he is now. The phenomenon of internet blogging really is just a widespread spewing of misinformation so I’m pleased to play my part in the rumour mill.

1 minute 56 by the way…



Chris Summerlin

Chris lives for the rock and can often be seen stumbling drunkenly on (and off) stages far and wide. Other hobbies include wearing jumpers, arsing about with Photoshop and trying to beat the world record for the number of offensive comments made in any 24 hour period. He has been married twice but his heart really belongs to his guitars. All 436 of them.
