Does anyone here like early 80's UK punk? Labels like Riot City, Rot, Clay, etc? If anyone does, lately I have been listening to the English Dogs way too much as well as Hagar the Womb, the Undead, and the Subhumans. I saw Citizen Fish last night with MDC. MDC was much better than Citizen Fish but I'm not really into that ska stuff.

Invasion of the Porky Men is bad rear end. Love the Subhumans, never could get in to Citizen Fish. Favorite of that era and location was Rudimentary Peni, which I get poo poo for every time I bring it up. GBH, Discharge, Infa-Riot... I could go on like this for a while. Then we get in to Oi! and I'm just all over the place.

So yes, I do.

Dear internet punx,

Why must bands like the Sick-E's be classified as "Synth-Punk" because they have a keyboard? If I heard someone say that a band is "Synth-Punk" I wouldn't touch them with a 20 foot poll due to the fact the term sounds like something a college sophomore with a Yamaha keyboard would refer to his Foo Fighters cover band as. However, my thorough research has revealed that the Sick-E's are loving rad, and sound like what all of those early Estrus and Crypt bands should have sounded like (except for the Mummies who are perfect in every way).


In short, please stop confusing me. Thanks.

PS get off my lawn

Absolutely. Just got a punk venue up and running here in Camel City so hopefully they'll do an east coast tour.

I've heard people call bands "melodic hardcore" when they mean "not mosh metal". Keep in mind a lot of people will look at you like a deer in headlights if you refer to Black Flag as a hardcore band.

If you're in driving distance of Milwaukee I advise thee to get the gently caress there. Its a huge show that starts around 4, Homostupids are on around 8 or so. Probably the only time you'll see them outside Cleveland. Their two tours so far have been

1) Toronto, then home
2) Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, then home

They probably aren't coming out again anytime soon. Alessandro from Out With A Bang is with them headbutting everything that moves.

I hate you. I hate you so loving much. It's purely jealousy too, y'know. I don't even know you, but I hate you because you get to see The Homostupids and some dickwad from Out With A Bang. I love both of those bands. I want to see them. I probably never will.

Oh well. American Cheeseburger is playing Asheville in February maybe. That'll be good. I'd love to go see Brutal Knights with Double Negative too, but Raleigh is a son of a bitch to find a cheap place to stay.

Also at SXSW, hosed Up is opening for... The Breeders? Weird.

Y'know, the only thing keeping me from rolling around on the floor writhing about not going to SXSW this year is the fact that The Slits are playing and not The Raincoats. If it was The Raincoats, I'd be selling handjobs at a truck stop for airfare right now.

Is it worth seeing them? I'm at school, and they are playing in my hometown an hour and a half away.

Seeing as how I managed to get roughly 3 hours from my current place of residence to see them and have no regrets, I'd say an hour and a half isn't that much to ask. If you dig fast, screamy, half-way goofy poo poo you really can't go wrong. Think Charles Bronson with a bit more song structure and tattoos. You're almost there.

Murphy's Law can possibly define the Meathead genre that gave rise to immense amounts of really lovely spinoffs and worse fans. Plus its a pretty dumb name.


Murphy's Law is a stupid band with a stupid name, but the whole "meat head" thing I'd reserve more for some of their contemporaries. Sure, they where associated with the whole NYHC SKINS deal and it didn't do them any favors, but to be perfectly honest by the time their first album came out they where more or less the goofy stoner kids of the batch.

The music is loving lame most of the time (some of it makes me laugh in a good way, but I am an idiot so take that for what it is worth), but to say they define the genre of dipshit NYHC FO LIFE YO is loving wrong.

It wouldn't be too off the mark to say Murphy's Law where the Municipal Waste of the late 80's. Keep in mind hardcore was full of violent, iron pumping, hammer-skin courting assholes back then.

The lineup for the Philly show is so disappointing. Waste, Casualties, Boils. Might be the first Waste show I've passed up in years.

As sad as it is for me to admit this, but I pretty much cut my teeth on the early to mid 90's Boils/Violent Society PA scene. I'd still go just to say hey to Greg again.

Oi got over saturated with really, really loving mediocre bands in the late 90's. Most of the original bands are still great.

Also "Platinum Blond" is probably one the best rock and roll songs ever recorded by anyone.
