If I would have a time machine

...I would just abuse the thing to please my inner music maniac.

I would...

Go to the UFO club in 66 to check out Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd
Go to The Boarding house in 1972 to check out the Residents' first gig.
Go to the Paradiso in 79 to check out Joy Division, A Certain Ratio and Cabaret Voltaire
Go to the Fab Mab in 80 to check out Dead Kennedys, Snakefinger and Tuxedomoon. From there, I would go to London to see This Heat.
Go to Chicago in 86 to see Big Black. I would then seek out the next Butthole Surfers gig.
...
This might go on for a while, but you get the idea.
What would you do?

I'd go with you to Chigaco, definitely.

I might be interested in seeing Black Flag at some beach party in 79 too.

Teemu:
I was there and it was great. Kokkola shoutfest.
Janne: Cool! We just have to kidnap some particle engineer or sumthin...
Was Rollins in BF in 79 btw?

I'd go to some place in '85 or something to see PIL... and then somewhere in ´97 to see Valentine Six just to get the information who they were, why they quit and what the main guy has done since..

..and then go back to all the festivals i've been to, just to see all the good acts that I have missed because I did not know them then..

And finally I'd go back to yesterday, skip the 3 beers in Mendocino and sleep well...
