SOUNDGARDEN
MISCELLANY

README

Server support and disk space for the last 15+ years from Stargate Industries.

Important disclaimer
I am in no way affiliated with the band, except that I am a fan. This site is purely unofficial. All media is the property of its original creator(s).

The reason these pages exist
This site exists because you and I dig Soundgarden; because the Web has enough collections of pointers that it might be interesting to have an actual destination; and because I am constantly challenged by sites like Five Horizons that are created by people never content with just being better than all the rest.

I began work on the site in early 1994, and solicited help from the alt.music.alternative community on May 9 of that year. After hooking up with Kim Bayley, the site was launched on June 12, 1994.

Borrowing things from this site
The most likely answer you'll get is, "No, you can't borrow that for your website." Why? Because people have worked hard to make this stuff available for you to enjoy, not to take and re-distribute. Please show all of the contributors to this site your respect and do not borrow their work. If you absolutely must have something, feel free to email me.

Tools of the trade
People used to ask me what kind of hardware and software I use to do website production. Now, nobody cares, because everyone knows the tools: a fast PC, Photoshop, etc. If you really are interested or have any questions, email me.

Special thanks
To Kim Bayley, the original co-conspirator, for all her help and support, for being the first to express interest in the project in 1994, and for her continued encouragement. Without her, this site would not exist.

To Justin Nicholls, for working like a madman for months to compile the FAQ, for contributing so much invaluable information to this project, and for continuing to amaze me with his knowledge and analytical abilities.

To Steve Russell Jr. for the immense quantity of information that he compiled that I have used on these Web pages, for marking up the discogs so I don't have to do it, and for planting the seed of the SG Web Alliance.

To Jon Rosenson of Stargate Industries, who donated server space for the project in 1995, back when their primary web server was a PC with 128MB RAM. Moving from a school account with a 5MB quota to (for all practical purposes) unlimited space is what allowed the site to become what it is today.

Some awards and stuff for this site
Back in the day, I used to receive email telling me that the Soundgarden site has been listed somewhere or selected to receive special recognition. The icons below are from sites that don't even exist any more. Remember when unfURLed (the award for which this site actually won) was a big deal? I didn't think so.
