"If Fire In The Kitchen came in at the tail end of new wave, they’d be as popular as, oh, say the Rumour. If they held their breath for five years, they’d be twice as big…Oh, almost forgot, Television, MX-80 Sound, Slovenly, Hate Dogs (I hope this looks nice in a press kit)."

CONFLICT 51 Fall 1990 (page 22)  FITK review by Gerard Cosloy, Editor

  • Seems there are a lot bands named Fire In The Kitchen in the world.  This one was a great NYC fixture in the late 80’s and early 90’s, fronted by Bob Bannister and drummer Robert Dennis, who still play together in Escape By Ostrich and the Scene Is Now.
  • We’ll take this opportunity to give a shout out to EMBER SCHRAG, who Bob Bannister has been accompanying during the past year. Her goner strum is one of the highlights of NYC right now. I think Bob would agree. http://www.emberschrag.com/

Fun post - now I wanna hear this record!

Check out this letter, and all of the resulting spin and counter-spin. If this gets significant news coverage, it won’t do the Brown campaign any favors.

This could be very cool, but it sounds like it will take a while. I wonder if there’s a way to participate/help test/stay informed of their progress?
