1986. Arthur Shane used these photos that I swear were in a 1983 issue of Gagging Dog, the Phoenix fanzine he contributed to. The guy on the right in the photo skanking (er, "moshing" as the kids say these days) was a Tucson waif named Mark (aka "barefoot mark" in reference to his preferred mode of footwear, in scorching Arizona and hardcore dance-floors, mind you). Mark sorta "lived off the land" (I hesitate to call him "homeless" because unfortunately thats a charged word these days). He was a true anarchist, nice guy. Through this flyer site I recieved word that he died some years back from heart failure upon jumping into a hot spring in New Mexico. Way to go, Mark!!
