    I like the stage-dive panel.

    I think it’s “Cunniff” with a C, though.  yep:  http://www.jillcunniff.com/
    Looks like the Beasties probably spelled it wrong in their lyric sheet since every online lyric search spells it K single-N.  In which case, the way you have it is more correct as a direct quote from your subject.  Or possibly she spelled it that way back then as a punk version?

    I bought the Polly Wog Stew ep from Dave Parsons when he used to sell records at CBGBs out of a shopping cart during the hardcore matinees.  He was also the first guy in New York who was selling skateboard stuff too.  Dave skipped out of town after owing a lot of money to a lot of people like the guys from Agnostic Front. It was a shame because Rat Cage was a familiar hang out for a lot of kids in the early NYHC scene.

    Rollins info is incorrect, Henry got picked up by BF after a BF show and a Circle Jerks show  at Pep lounge and Irving Plaza respectively; both bands met up at A7 for a Jam session/afterparty, Henry and others sang their fave songs w/the band, Henry sang “Screaming Fist” and got the green light after that…
