What's the Future Ever Done for Me?

What Does Punk Rock have in Common with a Snickelway?

This is a question on many people’s minds these days.

 St. Patrick street just north of Queen. Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s the upstairs space was a rehearsal studio run by John MacLeod formerly of Johnny and G-Rays

The rehearsal space was later used by FM during the day and at night my band, Eyelevel would go in to rehearse as the night rates were cheaper.

    Great doc… would like to see the whole thing. Anyway, Eyelevel… is that Carlos on the left? And that guy second from the right… John, maybe? He was in my foundation year at OCA. but I don’t recall seeing him after ’79 or so. And dig the dude with the rad bass!
    Harry Palme, ex of the G-Rays, turned up in Guelph a few years later… used to see him play in various bands there in the later 80s.
