is a magazine dedicated to rooting out the cashews in the bridge mix of unpopular culture. Since 1992 we have chronicled the neglected, the odd, the nifty and the nuts.


The Scram Gang is planning a special event to be held in Los Angeles November 3-4, 2001. We're talking with many of the great artists who've appeared in the magazine, and plan to bring you some truly amazing performers. We can let you know that currently expected to appear are: Sean Bonniwell and the Music Machine, Deniz Tek, The Loons, Red Planet, Harvey Sid Fisher and Bangers and Mash. Watch this space for more announcements. We're looking for folks to get involved, vendors, decorators, film curators, DJs, go-go dancers (with or without their own cages), and anyone whose parents own a ballroom we can use!



For a very limited time, new Scram subscribers who mention this offer will receive a copy of the great new CD by top British beat combo, the Embrooks. "Our New Day" comes to you from Scram and your friends at Voxx Records.


Scram #13 is now available, with Mari Kono's lovely cover inspired by 1930s issues of "True Story" magazine. The cover cutie's called Janet Klein, and she leads a naughty old timey ensemble called The Parlor Boys. Inside #13: Hub Kapp & the Wheels, the Mooney Suzuki, guys who sing like girls, Northwest instro band The Frantics, Mark Farner & Ideology, Gearhead recording artists Red Planet, Gene Sculatti on the Top 10 "next Dylans," the final days of the Kahiki tiki restaurant, Shocking Blue, Neil Hamburger live, and more.

Toni Basil's incredibly hip career (from avant-garde movie star to punk rock, with "Mickey" being the least of it)... Denny Eichhorn interviews Peter Blecha of the new Seattle Experience Music Project rocknroll museum about the weirdest things in their collection and the guy who tried to sell Jimi Hendrix' grave marker...
