BOOM & THE LEGION OF DOOM.



Early 80's violent/drug-addled/mentally-disturbed/slightly inbred/butcher-as-a-day-job/chaotic hardcore freaks from the predominently "born-again/ cult of Amway" western side of Michigan.
Never really appreciated or accepted by "the scene", they eventually made their way out to San Francisco - only to be (for the most part) unaccepted here as well.

Some members have returned to the backwoods of MI, while others linger on in perpetual SF punker limbo.
Others have moved to Hawaii and become real estate magnate-slash-artists.

Rumor has it there will be a reunion in the fall of this year in S.F.

(If it weren't for these guys, I may not have made the move from MI to SF - thanks Smelly).
