The Illustrious Few
Many years ago Andy Newell first introduced Dr. Cuddles to the guitar
and the joys of music. Now he is our first FOTM
for 2004. Andy has followed up his extraordinary childhood
contributions to Bucky Spins in many ways, including enthusiastic
support, nearly perfect attendance, and even equipment unloading! We
love Andy Newell!
With outstanding creativity and humor, John Hoctor has energetically
supported us from the beginning. He's given us a wealth of ideas,
true photos, and enhanced photos, while coming out to almost all our
shows. Bucky Spins loves John Hoctor!
|March, April, May 2003
Eric, Christina, and Niels are the 2003, March, April, and May FOTM's!
They form a powerful triumvirate of fandom that is unlikely to be
matched. Together they have perfect attendance. They got us one of
our first gigs. They have provided very useful advice and criticism
along with positive support. They have linked to us from websites and
promoted us with posters and stickers. To top off these
contributions, they filmed a rockumentary of our 1st birthday show,
with Eric and Christina interviewing people, while Niels, an
up-and-coming indie film maker, operated the cameras and directed.
Rumors have even circulated that Eric, a talented visual artist, has
yet another artistic contribution waiting for a worthy presentation
opportunity. We love the Cosman kids!
To the left, Jessica Howe triumphantly lofts her Bucky Spins Fan of the Month plaque, which
was presented to her on Feb. 12th at The Sky Bar. She
earned this recognition by applying her outstanding creativity to the art of Bucky Spins
T-shirt creation. From her first duct tape "all of my energy" t-shirt, to her custom
t-shirt creation during our Feb. 12th performance, her work exemplifies the pioneering
creativity we love in our audience. You can admire some of her creations in this
brief retrospective of her excellent T's!
As the first ever FOTM, Chris McNulty will always hold a very special place
in the history and hearts of Bucky Spins. Chris flew out from MN twice
(thrice and counting as of Feb. 2003) to see Bucky Spins, surmounting
overwhelming obstacles in order to generously add his stupendous personality
to our excellent audience. To the left you can see Chris with his two fan
of the month (FOTM) plaques at our Dec.18th gig at The Thirsty
Ear. We love you, Chris!
Be sure to read his fantastic interview!
