By Chyrisse Tabone, Tampa Correspondent–Interview in London
A couple of months ago while checking out videos on YouTube I discovered a fantastic dark and eerie post-punk song called “The Universe Explodes Into A Billion Photons of White Pure Light.” It absolutely blew my mind! The song was from a newly released album by 1980s underground punk cult group Membranes and was its first in 26 years. I knew I had to find out more about this band and little would I know in July I would have the opportunity to chat with musician, songwriter, and punk rock historian John Robb while walking around London.

I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
