The Krayons Were/Are for Real!

RECEIVED Thu., April 17, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Since my early days of the punk and hardcore scene in Austin, the Krayons played to packed houses, clubs, and warehouses [“Texas Platters,” Music, April 18]. This may be before your time; this was back in the days of the Cavity Club and, after that, the Blue Flamingo. This was a time when skateboarding was a crime. This was before punk was cool, fashionable, and marketable. Granted the Krayons may live on in retrospective CDs and reunion shows only, but for this aging punk rocker who grew up in an Austin that despised punks and their music, the Krayons were/are for real!
