Origin of CURL

Developed by a group of 20-something friends during the summer of 2001 while hanging out in our backyard under some plum trees.   Initially thought of as the title of a theoretical ‘zine that would occupy us while we had nothing better to do celebrated our new self-determined lifestyle.  The ‘zine never happened, but we’ve been busy curling ever since.
