A punk house in Carbondale, Illinois that has been around since the mid-eighties. Founded by myself, Mikey Snot & Chris Rad. The exact location is kept undisclosed. Was NEVER owned by Jerome Benton of The Time, in fact the same person has owned it since the lat '70s, and is an old friend of mine. I honestly don't know where these kids come up with these totally untrue stories about the Cross...Nirvana NEVER played there, either.
Malcolm, Ray, Teg & lots of others are fighting to keep the Lost Cross up and running, but after 25 years, it ain't easy.

A punk house in Carbondale, Illinois that has been around since the mid-eighties. The exact location is kept undisclosed. (407 W. Elm St.) Was once owned by Jerome Benton of The Time. Benton later lost the house in a card game. When Benton was asked how he felt about owning the historic punk house he said, "Fuck a bunch of punks. Them bitches owe me rent money!."
