"He was such a musical polymath in a weird way," said local musician Paul Finger. Only someone with Shurilla's chutzpah could have pulled off the single "Warren Spahn," saluting the great Milwaukee Braves pitcher, and then turned it into a County Stadium event.

Rock in these years was not exclusively a white male zone; Nodine and company called on a number of female musicians and observers for their recollections.

Brick Through the Window: An Oral History of Punk Rock, New Wave and Noise in Milwaukee, 1964-1984. Remember, Milwaukee punk rock fans, that line in the Violent Femmes' "Kiss Off," when Gordon Gano sings "I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record"?

And despite the struggles and casualties documented, it sounds like they were fun."Brick Through the Window: An Oral History of Punk Rock, New Wave and Noise in Milwaukee, 1964-1984" builds on Steven Nodine's earlier book, "The Cease Is Increase." For this new, larger and textually cleaner oral history, Nodine (Dark Facade) was joined by collaborating musician-writers Eric Beaumont (Eric Blowtorch) and Clancy Carroll (The Ones, The Dominoes) and longtime scene chronicler David Luhrssen, arts and entertainment editor of the Shepherd Express.

For anyone who experienced part of this era, as I did, reading "Brick Through the Window" may trigger nostalgic memories of shows at Starship or Zak's, or the thrill of discovering new vinyl by the Red Ball Jets or the Haskels.

In general, the more original or alternative a band's vision or material, the harder it was for that band to find places to play here.

Take, for example, the early '70s band Death, formed by guys from the western suburbs.

One person of color who had a powerful impact on this scene was Kenny Baldwin, an excellent drummer who operated the Starship on N. "They looked like guys you'd see at a car show or gun convention," said Beaumont, who saw that 1982 show.

But, he reported, "from the first tom-tom roll to the last cymbal crash, the Ventures leveled the place. The Starship was crammed with people pogo dancing the whole time, while the Ventures stood immovable, like cold-blooded assassins."During most of the period chronicled in this book, Wisconsin's legal drinking age was 18 years old.Having just returned from an overseas vacation where I “partied with” a number of locals met spontaneously while out at concerts, bars and other events, I can’t quite wrap my head around the need for a dedicated app for travelers wanting to meet locals to hang out with — doesn’t this just happen naturally?But that, at least in part, is the premise behind today’s official launch of Party With, a revamped version of the app previously known as Party with a Local.Describing those years, Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie said: "There were hundreds and hundreds of us, and it was amorphous.There was very little distinction between the musicians and the fans.But "he had his heart set on having a girl singer redo the Raspberries singles in hot pants and a wife-beater T-shirt with no bra," a vision that Kossoris wanted no part of.Drummer Kenny Baldwin and bassist Andy Cavaluzzi of Locate Your Lips in 1981.At one point, In a Hot Coma boasted three distinctive voices: Brish; bassist Richard La Valliere, who would go on to lead The Oil Tasters; and keyboardist Jill Kossoris, later the focal point of the excellent power-pop group The Shivvers.After In a Hot Coma dissolved, Brish morphed into Presley Haskel, fronting The Haskels. The Oil Tasters were one of the most distinctive bands of Milwaukee's punk-rock era."For playing in the little nightclub, they had the biggest sound you'd ever heard," said local musician Scott Krueger."We learned a lot from those guys, from watching them.""We," in this case, was In a Hot Coma, led by singer-guitarist Jerome Brish, one of the central figures in "Brick Through the Window." In a city that often appeared indifferent, if not actually hostile, to original or alternative music, Brish kept elbowing his way into view."He was always practicing, always promoting, always gigging, getting press, dressing the part, putting up posters, building a foundation, a following for his band, and creating an image of himself," said his friend Kathleen Le Tendre Duerr.
