Sharing a Voidoid Memory

I was always looking foward to the next Voidoid gig back then. I recall some fabulous performances: Irving Plaza, Max's, CBGB and even Zappa's in Brooklyn.
I saw them walk into Zappa's that night. Ivan was still with the band so it was probably 1979 (?)
It was a sparse gathering, a night which you could get a drink at the bar right when when you wanted one.
My fondest memory of the show was
watching Richard dive at a drunk who was annoying him by incessantly shoving his finger in his face. He wrestled him to the floor, broke loose and climbed back on stage. My only regret was not bootlegging the gig on a 16mm.
I was extremely sorry to hear about Robert Quine. I met him backstage at an 8-eyed Spy concert one night, I think it was at Harrah's and they were opening for XTC. Offered him a joint but he declined. He was very pleasant.
Robert Quine's contribution to the scene was emmense. I think his sound not only spearheaded the "no wave" sensibilty of the downtown scene in the late 70's, it also gave it a rock hard foundation.
Many thanks Robert, rest in peace.
