As of today, 1998.03.18, fans of the magickal neo-'60s Amerikanski rock quartet the Smithereens have a new online discussion forum: The Usenet newsgroup alt.music.smithereens, created by Gerard Lanois (announcement page). What a surprise!
This newsgroup joins the existing semi-official site and Dave Persails' page. I'd already written the Smithereens KVETCH! Page and a still-incomplete Smithereens FAQ, and in the spirit of online sharing I am now also posting the entire archive of the former Smithereens mailing list. It's a Eudora mailbox, readable with any text editor, and in uncompressed form it's 1.7 MB in size. Don't say you weren't warned. Adherents of the Macintosh religion may use the 455 K StuffIt archive; a 423 K zipped version is also up.
