Brian Barney, aka Lane Klozier, passed away unexpectedly on November 16, 2009.

In his memory, Maximum Ink’s publisher, Rökker, wrote a memorial piece in his stead.

Every month, Lane would end his column with a witty quip. This month, I leave you with the best quips from his five years at Maximum Ink.

That’s all for this month…in the meantime…keep it real bitches!

The band has had some complications over the past couple of years

Milwaukee's Flight Suit

Brew City Sludge - September 2009

by Lane Klozier

This Month:

Flight Suit: Milwaukee’s Fight Suit is taking a whack at it these days. Nothing new here, but…they do sound pretty good. Are they loud? So loud your father would hate them. Are they aggressive? ...

Reckless Hearts: If you want to be popular…follow the trends. Easily done, but staying power will be determined by what you put out. Following the trends of power pop acts such as The Who, The Kinks and other such icons has been the formula for Milwaukee’s The Reckless Hearts…
