Plastic Crimewave, finally on the Internets

Just a quick note to say that Steve Krakow, aka Plastic Crimewave, the man behind the Reader's Secret History of Chicago Music strip, finally has a Web site. (It must be very strange for him to work in a medium where he can't draw and letter everything by hand.) Looks like a few kinks still need to be worked out--the site's brand new--but you should bookmark that sucker. It's only gonna get more interesting with time.

On a related note, Steve's band, renamed the Plastic Crimewave Expanse for the occasion, has just been added to the bill with Roky Erickson & the Explosives at Double Door on Sunday, August 31. The reason for the new handle? A modified lineup. Drummer Lawrence Peters is out of town, so Ben Baker Billington of Druids of Huge will fill in--plus Steve's brother Adam is guesting on sitar.
