Any former Punk Rockers out there?

Another Tuneless Racket - Volume Five: the American Beat WestI just 'inherited' a large history site of the 1970's-1980's Colorado punk rock scene (I went to college in Boulder), and I am hosting it here, until it finds a better home. I am slowly updating the site. I am no HTML expert but it's a fun brain teaser trying to figure out the code.

The site was created by fellow C.U. art student and musician, Phil Gammage, over twenty years ago. Gammage was recently consulted by author Steve Gardner, in order to write the newly-released Another Tuneless Racket - Volume Five: the American Beat West on our small but active Colorado punk rock/new wave music scene. Jello Biafra may be the most famous person to come out of Boulder, but lots of our colleagues continue in music up to this day, some quite successfully. My fanzine and all-girl bands get a mention (woohoo!) and Gardner also discusses vibrant punk scenes in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minnesota, and elsewhere."
