Crucial Jams

NUCLEAR ASSAULT was one of my maybe top 5 favorite bands in high school. I saw them live in MPLS at First Avenue my junior year and they gave the whole audience riff welts. A couple of years ago while on a mini-tour with SUNDAY MORNING EINSTEINS, I got to see a BRUTAL TRUTH reunion show in Chicago. We got to hang out with the legendary Danny Lilker, the bass player in N.A., HEMLOCK, S.O.D., EXIT 13, and THE RAVENOUS, to name a few. I had a picture of me and Danny, but I lost it. Probably for the best as it looked like some sort of disastrous Make-A-Wish Foundation meeting.

Ha. Riki Rachtman.
