Originally started as a place for North Carolina punk band Th' Cigaretz to live and rehearse. Guitarist/vocalist Jerry Williams and drummer Scott Jarvis eventually were the only ones still living there when they transformed the squat into a club/rehearsal space/recording studio. The Bad Brains recorded their first album here, which was eventually released by ROIR cassettes. The people who pass through those doors are legend. Days never to be seen again on this orb.

In the picture, you can see Jerry Williams RIP on the left, in the middle of the doorway, blonde hair.
