The Brown Cuts Neighbors are 15 years old today… well, they would be, if they had not perished, along with their core creative force — James Kopta — in a cruel accident two years ago. I’m actually a day late writing this. The “Official” anniversary date is Halloween, for, on that day in 1989, BCN played it’s first show as a “rock band” before an audience. (Brown cuts Neighbors truly had it’s start some 7 years earlier… which makes it the somewhat less interesting age of 22.) I joined the band a couple of weeks later, completing the ‘original’ six-piece lineup. By then the first album and half of the second had already been recorded… –to be continued as I find time during the week–
