And Adjacent ClustersThe slo punks were a varied lot, a wild and colorful venn diagram with people falling into all manner of shaded (or shady) subgroups. A great pleasure of being a punk is the entire absence of a requirement to fit into a mold. By participating in any number of kooky subgroups, one could always find a unique niche. Assholes need not apply, but then, there are Fred and Rob anyway.
Perhaps Russ captured it best when he spoke at a Punk Reunion about ThisThingWeHave.

NotesThis grouping seems too course. A single blob might be better. Perhaps if we could find just the right names.
The punks are incestuous. The groups have soft boundaries, people participate sporatically, new groups form and recoalesce or split off and become independent. It's freak'n organic! It don't paint inside the lines! What's a FUCKING HISTORIAN TO DO?!?
An entire Wiki dedicated to SLO RHPS would be a Good Thing(tm)
