To Hoovie’s and Back

two saturdays ago i made a kamikaze trip to southwest missouri to see my friend jeff hoover, and go back to 1984… the arcade. the pic above was taken when we were playing joust. jeff aka “hoovie” sent me home with some retro electronics he had lying around. the 1984 employees hit the main breaker at 11:00pm, killing all the power to the games & i got home around 3:30am sunday morning.

…before i left his house we put our musical talents together and recorded this with my monotron and the effects on his amp.

  1. Dave, thanks for keeping the website going! I like the monotron thing, sounds kind of Kraftwerk-ish..
    Really sorry I won’t see you guys in June, I’ll still be oversea’s. Again.
    But, probably for the last time.
