Acid Eater, many things can be said and figured about the Japanese quartet comprised of Yamazaki Maso, Toda Fusao, Miyaji Kensaku and Akiba, but probably no one’ll go and say they suck. Well, your mom might think so, but what does she know about any of this…
a live set from the band recorded and broadcast on Portland radio, KBOO, 90.7.
Shane MacGowan and the Popes (nope, not the Pogues). Regardless of the fact that the Stitches apparently have broader musical tastes then I’d anticipated, MacGowan being covered by that SoCal group isn’t the only contribution to the genre that he’s made.
Pink Fairies along with Mick Farren and Steve Peregrine Took (Tyrannosaurus Rex).
the Queers play live once. It was at some tiny, dingy venue called Peabody’s that’s actually now a big, dingy venue. Things, I suppose don’t change. Anyway, standing outside, smoking a cigarette, my fourteen year old person was privy to mockery that would become a part of my experience in and around ‘the punk scene.’ The locale of this particular venue allowed the sidewalks to be choked with various grown up frat dudes and their skanky companions. Luckily for me, I was able to take a listen as some (pseudo) gentleman and his companion for the evening saw the marquee, assumed that band was comprised of some homosexual miscreants and then figured I was gay as a result of standing in front of the club. It wasn’t the first time I’d get called a fag, but it’s the only time I’d remember.
Skrewdriver were almost on par with that original long player.
Cranked Up Really High.” There just wasn’t anything that was so gripping being issued by Slaughter and the Dogs that it made me think I needed to own an album. I mighta been wrong, but it kinda doesn’t matter at this point. And even if it did, the band still had enough mid-range offerings as to make any (of their two) full lengths an exercise in selective listening.
The Pist were sweet, but I think the sentiment related on that patch is a bit obtuse. Anyway, I wasn’t ever privy to seeing the Connecticut band live. Instead, I was relegated to playing Ideas Are Bulletproof roughly twenty times a week for a few years. Oddly enough, it didn’t leave me damaged in the least – I do have tinnitus, though.
Just one of the numerous reasons as to why the Normals shoulda gotten a record deal back in the day.
This is pretty much what passes as commentary on the Clevo hardcore scene....Charles Bronson ruled.
This is all part of the reason folks began thinking differently about the Clevo hardcore scene. I dunno if it's warranted or not, but his is some old tyme footage. And no, it's not actually a riot...
Manchester, in ’76 I believe, that the Sex Pistols performed at. And without question at that point in the history of music, witnessing something like that should have changed a few people’s lives. I guess it did. I mean, I know that that show occurred and that folks that would go on to make up the Buzzcocks, Magazine and Warsaw – we’ll go with Warsaw since Joy Division/New Order is pretty horrible – were all in attendance. There were most likely people apart from that in the crowd. And while this is strictly conjecture, it’d be a good guess that the guys who would eventually comprise the Donkeys showed up at some point. What else would they have been up to?
Hubble Bubble, whilst still the name of a band I’m about to get into, is also a way in which to refer to a hookah. But considering that fact that we’re talking about Europeans, there might just be tobacco product in there. Who knows?
Death of Samantha refugees. But this all actually begins during the ‘80s.
Helios Creed, who would ostensibly become the face of the group in addition to directing the sound that the band would cop over time. And on its ’77 debut, sans Creed, Chrome was still able to rouse a metallic punk racket, even if latter efforts would be hailed as benchmarks for years to come.
