When we started in '78 we were called The Stiffs, then around 1980 we changed to ZiP!, broke up in '82.

Thanks!
Yeah, 30 years ago I was in my early 20s, without a care in the world, I had a white 4001, a Peavey bass amp and 2-15" cab, a '68 Mustang fastback, a great band that was (a minor)part of the what was happening and hip right then, we didn't care about the past, we were creating NOW.
Alas, none of that applies now. But, there is a film in the works concerning the Corpus Christi Punk/Alternative scene, and our part in starting it all, so, all in all I'm pleased that my old band is still remembered. We're suprisingly all still alive, but spread out across the country, but who knows.
