” My name’s Ray. They call me Mister Future, you probably read about me in the papers. See, I’ve stomped a lot of people, I’ve offed a lot of people, and I’ve never gone to jail or nothin’. But now everyone around here says it’s gonna happen : someone’s gonna do me in later on. That’s why they call me Mister Future … yeah. ” – Our Chicago – Faces And Voices Of The City, by Richard Younker. A primer on Chicago gang sweaters is here.
I was looking at this amazing collection of photographs taken at New York City hardcore shows in the mid 1980s and I got really nostalgic, which is funny, since I wasn’t there. I thought I recognized the singer in the shot below as Rik Slave, who now fronts Rock City Morgue and who I’ve recorded many times. I showed him the picture, and he said ” Yeah, that’s me. Everybody in that photo is dead, but me. “. I always wished I’d grown up in NYC, but, you know, maybe it’s better that I didn’t.
