Death of Samantha

Tonight Cleveland's DEATH OF SAMANTHA are playing their first gig in nearly 20 years.

I saw DOS many times back in the 1980's.  I think I was probably at their second or maybe third-ever gig, way back when they were only a 3-piece band.  Even in that early stage I liked them right away.  They had some really good songs...not to mention an additional mysterious "it" that all great bands seem to have.

This particular recording captures them at the very first gig they played with their then-new guitar player, Doug Gillard.  It was at the long-gone Pop Shop near Cleveland State University.  The date was May 25, 1984 and they had not yet recorded their first single.  With John Petkovic's permission, I was allowed to tape their set on my boombox that night.  He also told me, "In 28 years from now, please post one of the songs on something called the internet."  I didn't know what he was talking about of course, but now it is clear what a visionary person he was/is.

I should be at their show tonight, but alas can not make the drive to Cleveland.  Sucks.  Oh well, I hope they don't wait another 20 years to reform.  I don't think I can hold out that long.



I don't know how long this will be here.  It might disappear if someone from the band objects...

You really make it seem so easy with your blo but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post.Yüz Germe
