Tower st. is a reference to 500 1/2 N. Tower Street Centralia Washington. A small second story apartment in old Hub City. The apartment is located two blocks from the train station, and directly in front of the tracks. the magnet lived there from 1990 thru 1994 in apt #2. The apartment was haunted by a little girl that had been killed while sleepwalking, struck by a passing train.
The Tower Street Musicians and Artists: Michelle Mae, lived in apartment #1 for several years. Tobi Vail, Kathi Wilcox, Billy Karren, Molly Neuman, Ian Svenonious, and others from the Olympia/ DC Riot Grrrl and Gospel yeah yeah period. Time well spent in the haunted apartments. Michelle, was a big sister to the magnet addict letting him play her instruments and showing him the basics. As a twist of fate Michelle later introduced him to his real long lost sister. However Toni was poisoned with tetrodotoxins which of course causes zombi-ism. Michelle moved to DC and never returned to the haunted apartments. Magnet Addict is a reference, an obsession with cassette tapes and all forms of magnetic tape recording all of which were utilized during the Tower St Magnet Addict recording sessions in the magnet mobile studio.
