January - Skafish, who only recorded a handful of
tracks over the last 2 years, records one last group of short themes that are
designed for television/film use. By
the end of January, Skafish takes an extended hiatus from recording. (He began
an extended break from performing by the end of 1994.)
August - Four of the short themes recorded by Skafish
in January are published by a major publishing house.
Chicago journalist Bob Kurson writes a cover story that appears in the Chicago
Sun Times crediting Skafish with single-handedly giving birth
to the punk movement of Chicago.
Throughout the year, Skafish’s work as a psychic
enables him to financially come out of deep poverty, and at least live
“paycheck to paycheck” for the first time since he formed the Skafish band
in January 1976.
