Jeffery Kilmer: "Evenings in the late 1980's & early 1990's were spent buying beer and Canadian Club Whiskey under age, at the City’s bullet-proof "party stores" and at sketchy alternative haunts in downtown Detroit and Hamtramck. The clubs were (mostly) located in the worst ghettos of the city. Clubs called Todd’s (in a defunct bowling alley), The Shelter, City Club, Lili’s, and St. Andrews Hall (the local independent band venue) were tiny hotbeds of creativity in the Murder Capitol of the World. I dressed only in black, had high, ratted “Robert Smith” hair, wore black eyeliner, but not tattoos. Tattoos were rare in the late 1980s; even on the bands I loved."
