A Case of (Minor) Mistaken Identity
DC ROCKS fans may love local music, but what they really dig is the history of the DC scene. One of my readers, a fountain of knowledge in his own right, Kendall Church, brought it to my attention that it was not Ian MacKaye's dome on the Minor Threat record jacket referenced in my article about the punk rock exhibit at the library. That head (and body) belong to Ian's brother Alec who was not in the band - hence the confusion. I went to a Very Reliable Source and was not only given confirmation on this factoid, but was rewarded with more minutiae for all you trivia fans: Alec MacKaye was also the hand model for the Teen Idles.
