AMX (a/k/a Material Issue) cassette 1996

2 Aug

Jim Ellison of Material Issue gave me a three-song cassette under the name AMX at the afterparty for Urge Overkill’s last show in Chicago in 1996 (before UO’s eventual reuniting). He wanted to have me put out a 45 under a pseudonym. Unfortunately, Jim died soon after. Two of the songs on the tape made it onto Material Issue’s posthumous Rykodisc CD, one is unreleased.


Quicksand (unreleased)

    Jim Ellison, “Jimmy,” as he was known to me way back at Marquardt Middle School in Glendale Heights, Illinois, was a good friend. We laughed a lot – it was hard not to with his infectious smile and sense of humor. I always will remember you old buddy…

    (Johnny – you were sure lucky to have known him so well.)
