Kissarmy mailing list? http://www.pmas.process.com/scripts/mxa ... m?KISSARMY

I joined the list in the early 90's... it was a great way to get inside info on the band.

That would have been way back in 1996. A mate's sister worked at a University, it was gradually shutting down for the summer break and "did I wish to accompany him to surf the (then) newish internet ?". Did I ever ! First Kiss sites were KIss Otaku, Kiss Asylum, Kiss Kastle, Kissin' Time (I think), a few more I've forgotten, plus Kissin' UK which sadly seems rarely updated these days. "oh, and you two can print as much as you like, :D there are reams of unused paper which is only going to be thrown away (!)" :shock: . Having worked for said establishment I can confirm many, many perfectly usable items were thrown away; desktop computers & laptops, paper including photographic paper, complete mostly unused software packages, tablets, ink cartridges, books, etc, etc, etc - but that's another story for another day....

Kiss Otaku & Kiss Asylum were the ones I visited the most. I used to have my own site on Geocities it was called Kiss Latinoamerica.
