Early in the autumn of 1988 a young lady named Lisa E. Sullivan sat down in her bedroom and set out to writing a newsletter about her little group of musician friends and the activities of their bands. She Xeroxed off some copies and passed them out to everybody she knew. October 1988 saw the release of the first of these newsletters, titled "The Rivethead" and the second came out in December. Although 1988 produced only these two newsletters, the seeds sown in the fall of this year would grow into a major music publication and thrive all the way up until almost the mid 90's. Bless you Lisa, for your vision, for your ambition, for your drive, and for your vast success with Rivethead!
