Rest in Peace My Brother From Another Mother Shawn Maloney aka Sweaty Shawn, Ref Raff, Spade, or Sluggo 2/2/1962 to10/8/2018. We were two misfits cut from the same cloth that shared an interest in all things punk rock, rockabilly, hot rod, and motorcycle. I could always count on you to make me laugh like the time I told you to drop by 99th Floor for IML Weekend in 2004 and you showed up in a leather bar vest, black leather rebel cap and a Tom of Finland t-shirt and were convincing enough to get us photographed by the Chicago Free Press Paper in front of the store (pictured) . Or the time you brought The Cramps to come shopping at 99th Floor and Lux bought a pair of Black Latex Knee High Lace Up Stiletto Heel Boots which he wore on Conan O'Brian while performing "Ultra Twist" and Ivy got a pair of Patent Vinyl Flame Job Hot Pants and a bunch of other stuff. BEST DAY EVER!!!!! I will miss getting your phone calls and hearing about the adventures of you and Rochester the cat. I could always count on you. I will miss you brother. #gonetoosoon#shawnmaloney#sluggo#refraff#exit#punkrock#RIP#sweatyshawn#spadewinchester#diedtooyoung#willbemissed#punk#rockabilly#thecramps#rollerderby#derby#derbyref#restinpeace#99thfloorchicago#99thfloor#exitchicago#exitonwells
Gearing up for Denver vs. Newcastle. I Love reffing this sport. Should be fun.
