Thanks for the memories 

Dear Lezlie Lowe,

Thank you for your recent story connecting 20 years worth of dots back to 1986's Out of the Fog compilation ("Making a Scene," Juno Guide, March 30). Returning to Halifax in the late '90s to a scene where there were actually venues for local, original talent to play, a market for their recordings and even a popular weekly paper to read all about it was quite a contrast from when I left in '87. The years made it easy to take for granted the significance of the scene that produced Out of the Fog.

I can't take any credit for how things developed since then, but to be able to say that I saw October Game play a dim room in the Holiday Inn, that I played on stage in "The Cove" version of Club Flamingo, that one of our songs was #1 on CKDU's chart (sure, it was only for a week, but STILL) and that our band, I Want, was on Out of the Fog—I consider myself one of a privileged few.
