Five years after this recording, IRON LUNG played my 10th wedding anniversary party with TALK IS POISON, KING CITY and ALL YOU CAN EAT. This Wednesday, IRON LUNG will play my 20th wedding anniversary party with HIDE, SMOKERS and FLESH WORLD. IRON LUNG have been around for a long time....and so have my wife and I.

A free box on the street score...I'm pretty sure that liking this band isn't "cool" in any punk sense, but Dummy is still a great record. Poor edits are on the master, but the overall sound quality is excellent, and this version of "Sour Times" is a little faster and swings a little more than the studio version....which I endorse.
artist: DOWN IN FLAMES (San Francisco, California, USA) venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 24 February 2002
length: 16 minutes
HERE Some genius (me) thought it was a good idea to have DOWN IN FLAMES (a band of adult males from San Francisco) to play with DOWN IN FLAMES (a band of teenage boys from New Jersey) sometime in the early 2000s.
