WE DON'T NEED ROME TELLING US WHAT TO DO

This weekend I beat up six straight-edge meatheads, dug up Subhumans' Worlds Apart, Richard Hell's Blank Generation and Severed Head of State's Anathema Device LPs, got entirely too little sleep and saw a great psychedelic rock band with punk roots from Portland called Purple Rhinestone Eagle. Also, I prefer the Ramones to the Sex Pistols.

I dunno, I have a soft spot for Pleasant Dreams, but everything that comes before that is 100% solid. Mania does a good job of collecting the later songs that are worth a drat - Bonzo Goes to Bitburg, Psycho Therapy, Warthog, Somebody Put Something in my Drink, Outsider, Animal Boy, etc.

"We came across a miracle - there was beer in the soda machine!"

edit: End of the Century isn't 100% solid maybe, but I like it still - Rock and Roll Radio, Chinese Rocks, Rock and Roll High School.

Being honest, I prefer seeing more arguments about stuff like this rather than just:

For the most part I do too, but it seems that arguments regarding straight edge tend to devolve into poo poo storms incredibly quickly.

I think we need some band tattoo discussions/pictures in here. I currently have a Comadre tattoo and I'm almost done with a Champion piece on my chest. Also currently working on concepts for Allegiance and Funeral Diner tattoos. I'll put up pictures soonish.

Yeah, it's been awhile but let me drudge up my memory...

Dead Boys (Night of the Living + Young, Loud and Snotty)
New York Dolls (S/T)
Johnny Thunders (LAMF)
Buzzcocks
Vibrators
The Gears (S/T)

Maybe the Undertones too...

I wouldn't do it unless one band member has died.

I'm kicking around the idea of a black arm band with the germs circle. Doubt I'll do that when I have other stuff to do that isn't band related though.

That sounds like a drat good idea. I've not got any tatts yet, but I've paid for my first one already, just need to figure out when I'm getting it done. It's going to be seven stars (not nautical stars) - one on each shoulder, three across the belt line on my back, back of left knee and back of right ankle. So it's the Orion constellation.

Who actually puts on gigs anyhow?

I'm seriously considering going, but my problem is that I'm on the west coast. I've checked train tickets and it's over $200 one way. If I can find an economical way to get there, I'm going.

One of the most annoying bands I've heard in a while. BUT they manage to be so catchy, so full of energy, so in love with what they're making, and so completely infectious that you almost immediately will start embracing all their annoying poo poo as part of the fun of this stuff. I'm pretty sure these kids are like 17 years old, but their songwriting downright blows my mind, letting all sorts of influences in from Cap'n Jazz to the Flaming Lips to Yes to HORSE the Band. Just some really great stuff here, and I think they deserve a bigger audience then they have.

Go listen NOW.

Yes and no. There's less synth, for what it's worth. I think it comes closest to the songwriting they had on their split with One Man Army.

Looks like I'm going to ClitFest with my 46 year old landlady/surrogate mother. While this would seem pretty lame, she's hardcore as hell and is trying to get us a free place to stay. I can't loving wait, it looks like an awesome festival and I loving love going to punk shows with my landlady. Nothing is cooler than a lady who's been a punk since 197something.
