AW 77 / Nix 320 


Adapted from Bela Koe-Krompecher's (co-founder of Anyway Records/former co-owner of Used Kids Records) blog. "Do You Remember" is a true story of the interactions of two record store employees how had several interesting experiences with the Ramones. It is not necessarily a story of fan-dome but a reflection of a time that has since passed with the dismantling of record stores and the pre-internet era, where meeting idols was doable especially when they hold the same passion as their listeners. Bela's blog has a readership of over 60,000 and has been featured in Paste, WFMU, vinyljourney.com, Dusted and many other blogs and music journals. "Do You Remember" is a full-fledged comic, drawn by Marvel/DC artist Andy Bennett and adapted by Nix Comics honcho, Ken Eppstein. With a limited run of only 500 print copies (with 350 pre-sells), "Do You Remember" is a nice time capsule for those who survived the past two decades. Bela also contributed to "Malls Across America" by photographer Michael Galinsky which was named one of Time magazine's books of the year for 2013.

Some words about Bela's writing:

"Very few of us are able to write about the formative experiences of our twenties without coming off as nostalgic has-beens, wannabes, or never-weres... As unfortunate and perhaps even depressing as the story sounds, it's a fascinating phenomenon to observe from within oneself, and by my count, no one is doing a better job of chronicling the metamorphosis than Bela Koe-Krompecher"-Read.My.Back (WPRB)

"Bela wrote the finest ode to Jim Shepard"-fuckinrecordreviews

"the best read on the internet right now"-Liz Clayton (Wind-Up Butter Cow, author of Nice Coffee Time)
