I don't remember what issue of Kicks it was, but it was relatively early in their run. There was an issue that got passed around between me, my brother, and a couple friends. There were all sorts of bands in it that we had never heard of. It was cool. They kept going off about Chan Romero in this particular issue, in their hand lettered word balloons and other space fillers. We all wondered at the time, just who is this Chan Romero? It was the eighties, what do you do? There isn't a record store in town that has Chan Romero records. And, (gasp) there is no internet. All we had was a magazine, a name, and several people side prowling at thrift stores and yard sales. Flash forward to today. When was the last time anyone had to leave the house to look for anything? We're pathetic. But not Chan Romero. He kicks ass.
