City of Lindas

Some 20 years ago, I heard a band at Dawg Gone on the East Side of Spartanburg SC called "City of Lindas".  Their drumming was tight.  Their vocalist was enthusiastic and crowd inspiring (as lead singers are supposed to be). Guitars were talented.  I enjoyed the music and the show they put on, and I 'bought the t-shirt'.  They were selling tapes (yes, cassette tapes) and CDs (this was 20 years ago) but since all they had was an EP, and I wanted to get a whole album, I waited, and said to myself "I'll get the album when it comes out".  If it ever did, I never saw it.  I was going to banish the t-shirt to the rag bin, but the color hasn't faded yet... so I am kinda glad I've still kept it around.

Using the interwebs and the google, I tried for 20 minutes today to dig up anything I could on "City of Lindas".  There's slim pickens out there from the early 90s when most people didn't even have dial up, and if they did, a 9600 baud modem was considered FAST!  When I got a Micron PC 100Mz Pentium in 1996 with Win95 on it, and a 14.4K modem, I thought it was lightening fast - LOL! 

But if you would like to listen to some City of Lindas also, check out the "myspace" link here.  There's very few clicks on the individual songs, for as long as these unknowns have been around.  Too bad more people did not get a chance to hear them.

Me thinks, that with this posting, I've just cornered the google market on "City of Lindas" references - LOL!
