Strychnine, Circa 1977 or 1978
Spike McCormack, Strychnine’s original drummer, recently left a nice, long, informative comment on my 2011 posting of the Strychnine 7″ which was cool.
Even cooler in his comment is that he mentioned that Strychnine is playing a reunion gig this coming September in a suburb just outside of Cleveland- with all of the original members!!
I am really going to try to make it to the gig, and you should too if you can! He says the band is going to play their ENTIRE song list from the 70’s. He says that they may be a bit older than they are since they broke up 34 years ago, in 1979, but he promises that they will rock everyone’s socks off. For me, just seeing them play “Jack The Ripper” live will be a “once in a lifetime” type of experience.
Here are the particulars for the show:
WHEN: Saturday, September 14, 2013
WHERE: The Sly Fox Lounge
4755 Great Northern Blvd
North Olmsted, OH
*For those of you familiar with Cleveland, The Sly Fox is off of I-480 near Great Northern Mall. It’s not in the mall itself, but rather in a strip mall near the mall.
Here’s what The Sly Fox looks like

If anyone else is planning on attending the Strychnine gig, post a comment so we can try to meet up.
