I just put up an obituary on the 10 Things blog for Bob for those that are interested in learning more about Kondrak or seeing a few more photos. I have about two dozen of his photos that ran in my zine back in the day I plan to scan in soon. I'll be doing some sort of tribute to him, so will Victim of Time it sounds like:

Bob's Top 3 Shows Ever

Does anyone here remember the banana truffle newsgroup? That's where I first came across Kondrak. I think only met him once in the flesh, but he once saved Sam Soule from a beating, so he's always been cool in my book.

i was on banana truffle a bit... wow... archives! total turkey trottin' in there. Kondrak was indeed all over it.

Sounds like a good story. I met him at the Slabtown Bender in February...real sweet guy, complimented my shoes...too sad, RIP.
Posted: Dec 1, 2009 4:21 pm
 
Whoa ... pretty floored to hear this.

I met Bob back in the mid-90's ... either at a Makers show in Vancouver or a Teengenerate show @ the 3B in Bellingham ... saw him quite a bit around that time & he was always a super nice guy to talk to - he'd always be taking photos & would mail me up copies from shows we were at. Lost touch w/ him around the time Banana-Truffle took a dive, but caught back up w/ him years later on thru this board & then started seein' him at a few shows again around the NW ... think I last saw him at the 2009 Bender in PDX where we had a few laughs.

This is pretty sad ... I'll have to get in touch w/ some old friends & let them know ...

RIP Bongowhite!

fuck this. i met him at a dead moon show in seattle with angus scrimm a few years back. he walked right up to us because i was wearing a rat traps shirt and he asked us where we were from. hung out with us the rest of the night. every town needs a coupla dudes like him.
one of my favorite poets ever.

RIP TET.

Ah, shit. What a bummer. He mentioned treatments briefly a few months back and I was worried.

Met him a few years ago at Budget Rock...he and I and Jason from Harold Ray Live took a break from the music at this great little dive bar a few blocks up Telegraph.

He sent me some incredibly obscure (I have a LOT of reggae and ska comps) bootlegs of late 50s/early 60s Jamaican R&B & ska.

I feel bad I never got to thank him.

I loved his total unselfconsciousness about being the sixtysomething guy at the punk rock club.

RIP, my friend. We'll miss you.

He was one of the good ones. A huge supporter of the musical underdogs,he not only appreciated their music but continually encouraged their efforts. He was definitely one of the reasons we kept it going in the NW,especially in Seattle- when you couldn't count on your other friends to show up and see you play there was Bob,camera in hand and flask in pocket,front and center in the thick of it all.

We became good friends w/ him through the 90s and early 2000s. It was a ritual for a long time to stop by his Wallingford flat on top of the hardware store and shoot the shit with some shots before the show. His erudite observations on everything from Rock n' Roll to Asian Hookers and beyond were always highly appreciated by us when we'd see him at shows.

He had kind of a reputation in certain circles of uptight Seattle for being a Dirty Old Man,and i've known people that have had their "issues" with him. I just admired the fact that he didn't shy away from any of this controversy because he just didn't give a fuck! He never made any effort to construct an image or placate (sp?) anyone that didn't get him. What you got from Bob was always pure honesty,sometimes (as on here) in semi-haiku form.

He was always one of those individuals i looked up to as someone i wanted to be when i grew up. I was looking forward to seeing him again when i came back up to visit but that's not in the cards now... the world is a little shittier now with his loss.

Rest In Peace,Brother.

I first heard of Bob Kondrak years ago via stories from Banana Trufflers that got to know him in the during mid-90's Garage scene, both online and in person. Everybody always said his first and last name together like he was a celebrity. I hadn't yet found my way to shows or the internet during his emergence, so I was still unaware of the man and his work until 1996.

I later dug reading all of his interviews, especially the one's in Make Room. The Fireworks and the Makers interviews stand out. His passion for music and his disregard for the boring zine-template interview style always made him a favorite. His Dirty Old Man Gonzo style made him a legend. RIP.
Posted: Dec 2, 2009 1:17 pm
 
I've added funeral info if any Seattle locals are interested in attending. It will also be shown online (which I find bizarre):
URL

I love everyone's stories and memories and how a lot of people totally got Kodnrak with his dirty old man, but still totally likable personality. When I first started publishing Kondrak's writing and photos I took a fair amount of crap for it from women who couldn't stand him, but like I told them, fuck it, I thought he was funny, original and took great photos. And the thing about Kondrak is he was an uber-fan. While I haven't seen him at all that many shows in the past few years, in the '90s he was at every garage punk show I went to, and I was going to 2-4 shows a week. He never got paid a dime for any of the photos or writing he did, it was all because he loved the music and wanted to promote it, which was exactly where I was coming from too. Dudes like that are the backbone of a music scene, they constantly support band's live shows, buy records, talk up and promote bands they love, and keep things going. Cheers dirty old man, you'll be missed!

Cheers dirty old man, you'll be missed!

I've really been bumming about this, and I was one of those women who didn't get it...at first. I was kind of shocked when he ordered a photo from me, but through correspondence about it found him to be a wonderful person.
No, it's not weird to be really bumming about it. We have lost a semi-regular poster before, but not one like tet68. He did post something fairly recently about how to go about making a will. How sad. And, I didn't check out the funeral url, but...it being shown online kind of makes sense, and will comfort a lot of people, it seems.
I'll really miss him.

this really threw me last night. what is a virtual family, anyway? whatever it is, i did feel some sort of connection to tet68 and i am saddened by his loss. i thought he was lovely.

real.

above the bullshit.

and now that i see who he actually was, it makes total sense.

And everyone knows the origin of his screen name, right?

Vietnam, Tet Offensive, 1968.

He was there.

this fucking sucks.

i was talking to him about his take on a possible seattle killed by death comp, he just lent me a big piles of old seattle zines, last time we talked he said he was doing better.

fuck.

He was one of the real original dudes, that's fore sure, and who else would be drinking beer out of a long-stemmed wine glass, looking like a social studies professor in the middle of the "pit" at the 2003 Blackout? ahh, the rock'n roll world really lost a great one. He always creeped out the girls, but that's why he was a such a relic.

He introduced a lot of Seattle bands like The Spits, Fe Fi Fo Fums, (his Teengenerate pics alone are insane) and so many others to all of us thousands of miles outside of the area. And I'm really glad that when I was in Seattle for the 36 hours I was in town a couple years ago, I got to hang out with Bob at the Funhouse, and it was a blast.

Big photo feature/tribute coming up soon on VoT!
Posted: Dec 3, 2009 9:30 am
 
"i was talking to him about a possible seattle killed by death comp,he just lent me a big piles of old seattle zines..."

Brian,if there's any way to still do this,make it happen.

Did any of you know that Bob either ran or participated in (not quite sure) a club/venue in Jet City around 78-81? It was called The Funhole,and was the site of a notrious Police riot where a girl got her arm broken.

I remember this from either reading it in Loser (great book) or from old locals recollections,probably both. Dan or brian or some other C-Town folk might have more accurate details about this.

If there was a way to track down a hard copy of his Truffle musings w/ all his other writings and pix you'd have quite a good sized zine on your hands! I wish someone would do this.
Posted: Dec 3, 2009 11:14 am
 
A little late but, RIP.

El Duce wrote a song about the Funhole. I know Tet had mentioned that he once partied with Duce.

Posted: Dec 3, 2009 7:23 pm
 
I always liked tet68's posts cuz he was creepy and shocking, and others were all too shocked about him. Which makes me regret his passing away even more.
Posted: Dec 4, 2009 5:12 am
 
I've been fortunate to live in Seattle and see at least a hundred shows with Bob. You name it we've seen it together. I will miss most of all his story's of seeing all of the 60's bands and hanging with the Hells Angels in the 70's, including Altamont. A good guy who was a veritable encyclopedia of all things good! I think Brian Foss from The Fun House was trying to work something out with him and his amazing record collection in the last few months before he passed. I know that he had him DJ on his radio program Sonic Reducer recently. He will be missed!
R.I.P. Bob
Posted: Dec 5, 2009 6:45 pm
 
Just finished clearing out Bob's apartment, probably was looking at photos of some of you. Wanted everyone to know that his family appreciates all the stories/memories that have been shared. He used to talk about going to the shows, taking photos, talking a lot of bullshit with everyone, and more talking about the shows. Funny to read about the references to creepy old man, he was my father-in-law who took tender pictures of me pregnant with his grandson. Whatever though, Bob was Bob--unfiltered, thoughtful, with an acidic sense of humor.

Thanks Dan for mentioning the funeral, which as he said is open to the public, and will be online for those of you who can't make it.

Not sure if I would call full on harassing woman at shows, interviews, user groups for the past 15 years "up-tight circles" I got into a few pretty large arguments with him on the Banana Truffle back in the day. He even sent me threatening emails about how he was cleaning his guns. I am not trying to full on disrespectful to someone in death, but it's how you treat people while you alive and there are many woman that he treated really, really badly...
Posted: Dec 9, 2009 5:42 pm
 
Thanks for the laughs , bob!! Really gonna miss ya buddy..
Posted: Dec 9, 2009 11:26 pm
 
I'dHave SlappedHer, please tell me you are taking the piss, and I just don't know you well enough to get that in your post.

On the off chance that you are serious, I thought I would tell you about how Bob treated people in the real world while he was alive. Often he would buy the bums he would encounter on his way home from the night-shift coffee and pastries, even though he wasn't rolling in the dough himself. Last Christmas, Bob left our family's house early to take a person he barely knew, but didn't have anywhere to go for the holidays, to a Chinese buffet for food and conversation. He treated everyone the same, regardless of gender, race, socio-economic class, etc.

I wasn't at any of these shows where you claim he harassed women, but I find it very interesting that not one of the thousands of photos or negatives which I have gone through in the past week-and-a-half, have been degrading or offensive to me as a woman or as a feminist.

His sense of humor was definitely crooked and way off-color, but that was Bob, a consummate teaser. If he could get you going (which it sounds like he did) he could be merciless.

Disrespectful is one thing, but flat out wrong must be corrected.
Posted: Dec 10, 2009 11:43 am
 
I am in no way taking the piss out of you. Go back and read over some of his posts from the Banana Truffle or read over some of his interviews. I was mostly trying to correct the comment that "up-tight circles" isn't *exactly* accurate. I guess (to me) there is a difference between talking about someone that you don't know (like a rock star or a model or a porn star) on a user-group -- as most folks do here. But Bob talked about woman that he was at shows with on a regular basis. This scene is very small... I stand by my comments 100%
Posted: Dec 10, 2009 11:59 am
 
Most folks that aren't uptight let go of a grudge after a little while. Most of the moderately uptight and quite a few of the extremely uptight let it go after someone dies.
Posted: Dec 10, 2009 2:56 pm
 
You probably should have taken it up with Bob when he was still around to defend himself. I don't ever remember him hassling anybody on here. Nobody's perfect.
Posted: Dec 10, 2009 4:07 pm
 
^i have a tough time defending dudes who are super sexist or overly pervy, and they usually back off if someone calls them out, but i think the dudes above are right, he's gone, let it go.
Posted: Dec 11, 2009 11:33 am
 
hmmm... I think this is sort of funny.
Holding a grudge isn't the same thing as being uptight.
Seems to me that Bob would appreciate the fact that I am still pissed.
Guess I know him a little better than most...
Posted: Dec 11, 2009 12:19 pm
 
You must have a learning disability. If holding grudges and being uptight were the same thing then I wouldn't have to specify varying likelihoods for folks at different points on the laid back/uptight spectrum to hold said grudges.
Posted: Dec 11, 2009 1:02 pm
 
Are we really going to talk about learning disabilities on the goner board while having a discussion about bob? Even I'm not that retarded...
Posted: Dec 11, 2009 1:32 pm
 
Ida, your grudge has no point anymore. I'm a woman who was never offended by Bob, but find what you're doing here extremely offensive. I'd love to see him tear you down, but he can't. There's a HUGE difference between pervy, and just being a BAD PERSON. I don't trust anyone who's not a little pervy...and I don't trust you...shut up already.

So I wanted to spill some beer on his grave or put a GONER sticker on his coffin, but there wasn't one. It took all of my energy to keep my sobbing to myself. I had to smack myself on the face to keep my composure; my emotions collided hard with the hangover I brought from Brian's Birthday Bash. Bob was totally there is spirit. I thought that at any moment I was going to puke. I envisioned Bob looking down from above and laughing at me; "One too many at the FUN HUT huh, Tonto." I was trying hard not to drink so much this Winter. The family had some of his many photos through the years out in the lobby. They actually had the old REGGAE CITY sign from years ago. They put out a tin full of Rock&Roll buttons of his. Everybody there put one on. J found a Thin Lizzy '78 tour button, T found a Statics button, and I found a Valentine Killers button. BRK and Bob's son envited everybody back to their place that actually was in my neck of the woods. Thank you for that BRK; hearing Bob stories and some of his past puts things into perspective. The idea was to stay for a quick coffee and cookie then split. The house was so warm and enviting that 10 minutes turned into 2 hours. The bed bug story was off the hook. As hungover as I was, I was able to cheers BOB with a little wine. Thanks again for the books and zines. If I had the room I would have grabbed all of 'em. How strange that I walked by when I did. Seattle will never be the same. LONG LIVE BOB

Bob always seemed disappointed in me. Like when he found out our band wasn't getting laid al the time. Or when I asked him what "tet68" was. Such looks of disappointment. Bob never disappointed.
although...
I asked Bob to MC a show once and he showed up with DJ Equipment. 2 CD players a mixer!!! maybe even his own table?
He dj'd the whole show.
Super fun though, and he gave us a bunch of awesome mix cds for our van.

Bob in Oakland. Kicked outta the stork club for sneaking in booze. Walks across the street, buys another bottle for his pocket. Walks to adult bookstore, buys a deck of nudie cards to give to the doorguy as an apology.

Bob, the Mayor of Wallingford....West Sect man. The memorial was a fitting tribute to Bob. Spot on Tonto. Wow, it just really sucks not seeing him around 45th St anymore. Damn. As shocking as it may sound, most of our other neighbors don't really care about records, drinking whiskey or talking shit about the latest show. We miss him.
Rest in peace bud. J & T.

Thanks G Mangerhoof and Tonto, wish there had been more time for so many things, including having you at our place longer.

Jalert - love the nudie cards; so totally Bob's style.
