back in the 80s, growing up in seattle, my favourite local band was room nine. one of the members later went on to form love battery. i can’t even recall how many times i saw them(my sister and her now husband and i even interviewed them once while chowing down on pizza). anyway, my sister recently hipped me to this fantastic blog called lamestain about the seattle music scene with downloads and videos of various bands. they cover a lot of the early and pre-grunge bands but also a lot of the bands that were clearly not grunge. including this nice write up on room nine.
