i miss the true classics from our area, Jim Jones & the Kool-Aid Kids, Thought Industry, Twitch, Morsel.

the early 90's local scene in W Mich was truely something to cherish. the bands and the clubs alike were very special. the music coming out of this area was unique as a whole compared to anywhere else. i'm very happy to have clubs like the Reptile House in my past.

I love how this thread rises from the ashes every few months. It's such a time warp for me.

Perhaps a replacement for Reptile House in good, old G-Rap?

Club North is an real cool new place. The show is an early all ages show but there is also a bar located in the venue for all those over 21 folks to entertain yourselves with. It's the best of both worlds!! So come check it out!! I'm also going to start spinning tunes there on the weekends. I'll be playing a wide mix of the best in Punk, Ska, Britpop, New Wave, Aternative, Metal, etc., etc., etc. etc. Blah. Blah. Blah.

That's the scoop so let's Rock!

Colin used to be the Tuesday night deejay at Reptile. Those were the days, ha ha.

I got that from Colin today, too. Sounds like Club North is turning into a bit of a Reptile replacement (though it used to be a sports bar, I thought), they even have a bondage night sometimes!

I purchased the old house from Larry Zeizer in April of 2004. I am now living in the "urban Loft." I am looking for ideas and partners to open the place back up. If anyone has ideas or more importantly $$$$$$ drop me line or post.

Hey Dan, Diana here. I don't think I can count the number of times I screamed, along with you and Ross and the rest, "Get the fuck out, it's time to close!" ;) Then we shut the door and drank some more...

I think we just wanted to say "fuck" as much as possible. ;) Our motto was "Cool as Fuck" after all.
