Sf Chronicle has the Pop Beat.

Max’s Kansas City was the now scene and where it was happening. Bands that played there layed the groundwork for generations of musicians to follow. That was Andy’s spot. He had his own room upstairs.  Check out what Bill Picture reported in the Sunday Datebook regarding The Dilettantes: the fivesome’s musical offerings are less CBGB’s and more Andy Warhol’s Factory.” Things did’nt get jumping downtown @ CBGB’s until Richard Hell toar up his T-Shirt and provided the nod to ‘punk-thought.‘ When Mr. Picture used the Andy analogy regarding The Dilettantes, I was slanted and enchanted. It brought be back to New York City where I lived during the swinging indie 90’s. I used to post-up on Andy’s steps to his house on east 59th street for some inspiration. I am still smitten by anything related to Warhol and the Factory scene. I was born too late. I just can’t get enough of the glam of it all. That was a special place.
