You know we wouldn't even have been a band or probably even know each other if it wasn't for The Smell and Pehrspace. Saddened to hear the news of both of them coming to an end, BUT also excited to see what the new chapter is for the both of them. With people like Jim Smith and Pauline Lay around, the spirit, fortitude and even a possible physicality of these places will go on. From meeting Dana watching her sing with Foot Village, to sweaty mosh pits with Jeff and The Mae Shi, to Cindy who is carrying the proverbial Smell and Pehr torch to Ray who's been a mainstay in this music scene for years...these places are in our hearts, minds and souls. We owe our sincere thanks to all that did, will, and continue to keep the LA DIY what's it's meant to be. If you don't know what that is, then come find out, cause it rules!
