1985.09.09 Madame Wong's West, Santa Monica, CA Scrunge

Post by Mike » Thu Mar 31, 2011 10:24 pm

September 9, 1985 Madame Wong's West, Santa Monica, CA

I'm not sure whether Eric was still in the band at this point or not.

Per the L.A. Times article I'm looking at the other bands on the bill were: Endless Motion, The Chairs, The Knobz, October, and Salt Talk.

The best info in regard to Eric's time in Scrunge is at intertwoven's site: http://www.somediverswhistle.com/fq/

yeah, if Illuminati had started playing live in mid August 85, meaning Psi Com was dead, I think Eric was probably out of Scrunge by this point. This show is probably during the brief time between Eric leaving but before Brinkman left. so hey, still a Jane's related show, haha

Well intertwoven, Erik added a Scrunge section to the tour dates section and I added this show in.

September 09, 1985 - Madame Wong's West, Santa Monica, CA
http://janesaddiction.org/tour/show/Scr ... 9-09/2224/

I did add in the shows info section that "This show may have taken place after Eric had been kicked out of the band."
Maybe you can ask Eric or Jack Gould for some confirmation either way?

In addition to adding this Scrunge show to the newly created Scrunge section I moved the following show from the Jane's list to the Scrunge list:

0?/??/1985 - Brinkman Home, Los Angeles, CA
http://janesaddiction.org/tour/show/Scr ... x-xx/1960/

Some how it had found its way onto the Jane's gig list.
Possibly / probably my fault. :dunce:

I also added the following date to the Scrunge gig list:

0?/??/1985 - Bell Ranch, Apple Valley, CA
http://janesaddiction.org/tour/show/Scr ... x-xx/2225/

I didn't want to copy the info you have on your site word for word or anything but was hoping you wouldn't mind beefing up these dates with some further info when you have time or maybe we can just link back to your "before Jane's" page for them?

OK I got the ad fixed up and added in.
It's from the September 8, 1985 Los Angeles Times.

This has nothing to do with the show at Madame Wong's but I figured this was a good place to post it anyway.
That party turned out to be one of the last shows for both Scrunge (which mutated into an all Gould Brothers' entity known as Scrunge Planet)

There's only a tiny blurb about Scrunge Planet in the issue, most of which you can read in the photo I posted.
