    Bob's got some great enviro-rock, eco-punk, etc. tunes. Just wondering if anyone else knew of him.
     
  2. I haven't.
    I guess no one else has either.

    I have read of him...

    He always has ads in the Metro Times for fill-in gigs.

    I've never seen or heard him play.

    nope
     
  6. I've heard of him, mainly in ads in Real Detroit and Metro Times and stuff. Never seen/heard him play, sounds intriguing though. "Enviro-rock" and "eco-punk"? Just when I thought there were already too many genre-names...:p

    He basically made up the genre names himself... my old band used to back him up and I was just wondering if he had made any headway, or was even still playing.

    His show is worth checking out at least once - songs are very catchy and I think anyone into garage rock and/or old punk would dig it.

    Seems to be a lot of Detroiters around :) if anyone is interested in a meet up I'll let you guys know next time I'm there!

    For some reason he sounds farmiliar to me, but I don't know where I heard of him, if I'm thinking of the same person you are
