Herb Jue

Herbert Jue grew up in a log cabin listening to John Denver and Barry Manilow records on a Fisher modular stereo. College came & he was summoned to reality via Elvis Costello, Talking Heads, Joe Jackson and The Clash, all on his Technics belt-drive turntable. This led to his humble Kvinde Hader Klub zine, which he parlayed into a short stint in the recording industry (think flexi & cassette tape). Peer pressure led him to forsake all, and, to concentrate on fostering cats.
