What is the deal with Tualatin?
Tualatin is a suburb of Portland, Oregon. It is approximately 15 minutes
outside of the city's core if traffic is good on I-5. Tualatin is notable
for its sprawly nature, lack of culture, man-made lake (no swimming allowed)
in the "downtown" area, lack of thrift stores, annual "Crawfish Festival",
unpronounceable name, and for being the place where I lived during my impressionable
junior high and high-school years. Tualatin's musical "scene" from
1989 to 1991 consisted of the Raunchy Young Lepers, the Cruise Missiles Named
Bob, and maybe some other schmucks whom I wouldn't have known anyway.
I think the Goat-Boy's dad played in a cover band that played lots of Rush.
