Duke's graffiti
Karla at Duke's Royal Coach Inn, Congress Avenue

Right in the very center of this photo (barely visible) is "Idle Time." This is the first time I sprayed (or thought of) the name. Karla and I were hanging around by the wall between shows one night when I found a discarded can of spray paint. Contemplating what pithy sentiment I could make, I looked around and saw an Idle Time" camper top. Good enough for me. The name stuck. Shortly afterwards, I decided to start up a 'zine, and that was the name I chose.

Karla went on to sing with God on Drugs and Toxic Shock and others.
