The Nits

Last night, I worked on my "Nits" videos - The first "reel" is "1980 - 1985" - most of this is fabulous quality, but a few things look like dubs of dubs; nearly all of it was given to me in the fall of 1985, by The Nits themselves (mostly Henk).

Ooh, count me in on THAT!!

These pics of early sleeves are just amazing, they really remind me just HOW LONG those guys have been at it.

Ron, I don't know if you've looked at the Nits acoustic concert on, but it's ... well ... pretty fab that they're still at it. Rob Klöet (hopefully that umlaut survived!) is still one of the most amazing percussionists I've ever seen.
