did you get into 808:
1989 upon reading the 90 album review in Melody Maker (or
was it the NME?) and then hearing the album. Went to see them live in London in
1990 and was hooked ever since. Got in touch with 808 in 1994 over
the Internet. Met them a couple of times in 1996 and bugged
them about their Web site not being up-to-date. They suggested
I make my own, which went online in 1997 and during that
year became the official site.
