Agression was an American rock band from Silver Strand Beach, Oxnard, California. Considered as one of the most influential founding bands of the Nardcore sound within the hardcore punk scene, and generally considered the creators of the subgenre "skate punk", being the first band to fuse the skate culture with the punk scene- featuring a song about skateboarding (Intense Energy), and a skater in a pool as album art on the on the cover of their first and most popular album, "Don't be Mistaken".
The band was very well known for its fast-paced, aggressive songs such as "Slammin' at the Club", "Money Machine", "Intense Energy", "Never Alone", "Go to War", and "Locals Only". (Agression History on Wiki)

The Submissives were a notable B&D and S&M themed hardcore punk band from Portland, OR comprised of three of the biggest names in the American hardcore scene.
The bands members included Pig Champion (a.k.a. Tom Roberts) from Poison Idea, Dave Dictor from MDC, and Steve Andrews from Naked Violence.
The songs were almost exclusively about men wanting to be dominated by women.
Dave Dictor said of the project in a 2007 interview:
"It was a glorious and fabulous project out on Honest Don's Records, worked on in 1996/1997 about sexual submission in the realm of female domination. I write on my myspace blog (myspace.com/mdc) about my relationship with Tom Roberts. He was a hell of a creative soul and also a hurting person. We did drugs with each other and lived with each other on the second floor of a punk club rehearsal space known as Suburbia. It was some of my most creative moments with a totally committed person I have ever worked with. Ron Posner and Al Shultz of MDC are other very creative people but Tom's and my creative time was very compressed. He was a large soul-filled being. I miss Tom greatly."

You read right! The Doc comes through with yet another classic reissue.
Stalag 13 emerged from the "Nardcore" scene of the early 80's along with other greats such as: Agression, Ill Repute, Stretch Marks, RKL and Dr. Know.
Nearly 20 years after its original release Oxnard's Stalag 13 return. On this reissue you get the original LP, the same classic artwork, and 4 bonus songs (!) never before released, as well as a great cd booklet with never-seen photos and old fliers! (Interpunk.com)
What would you get if you stuffed Skateboarding, agressive teens, and Hardcore in a blender? You would end up with Stalag 13's In Control LP.
Stalag 13 was one of the many legendary Nardcore (Oxnard Hardcore) along with bands like Ill Repute, Dr. Know, Agression, RKL, Rat Pack, Habeas Corpus, etc.
In Control is one of those records you just can't get enough of because, in my opinion, every song is great. All 9 songs hit you like a ton of bricks. (KILL FROM THE HEART)
A real solid, good-sounding LP taking up where Minor Threat left off with live your own life "In Control" lyrics. Hardcore of the best kind. (Al Flipside, from Flipside #43, 1984)

The Fartz, hailing from 'neath the dreary skies of Seattle, terrorized the Northwest in the early 80's and reformed in 1998 after a long hiatus.
Finally, here's an album of all new material channeling their pent up hardcore rage of post-Reagan years! Blaine's caustic paint-peeling vocals are still intact, fortified by the return of the original bassist/lyricist/art "genius" Steve, plus Alex Maggot Brain (ex-Accused) on guitar and Karl Fowler (ex-Detonators, North American Bison) on drums.
This album was set up, recorded, and mixed on December 22 and 23, 2001 at Private Radio in Seattle by legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Zen Guerrilla, No WTO Combo, etc., etc.), showcasing some serious production chops in addition to the robust, no-frills songwriting of the Fartz.
These are the first new songs the band has written and recorded since they reformed four years ago. (As you recall, we re-issued their early 80's material in 1998 and last year's 'What's In A Name...?' was a re-recording of those songs.) The band's current lineup has been solid for the past three years, occasionally playing in the Seattle area to instill fear and reverence in the youth of today.
Steve Fart- original bass player, artist, lyricist.
Blaine "Zippy" Fart- worn out vocal chords.
Alex "Maggot Brain"- 666 string. Replaced Paul Solger in 1999. Alex was the bass player for Seattle's Maggot Brains--an early 80's outfit that simply featured bass, drums and vocals. He later went on to join Blaine in the Accused.
Karl Minus - the drums. Been with the Fartz since the day they reformed. Former member of the North American Bison and the Detonators. (A.T.)
THE FARTZ - "Injustice", 2002: Twenty years prior, THE FARTZ unveiled their happy talent for offending the easily offended via their blaring, club-footed clatter and lewd lyrics. "Injustice" finds them showing the youngsters how it's done in 2002, but this time the vehicle is inconceivable speed...and lewd lyrics. For a band determined not to take itself seriously, these guys kick up a major ruckus with "Injustice". Stuff like "God Fearing Christians" makes high-velocity ZEKE or SPEEDEALER sound like some kind of FLIPPER demo.
ACCÜSED fans that haven't checked this one out should take a break from Ebay (you're never going to get that original CD of "Open Casket" anyway) and lose themselves in these cheap thrills. "What Do You Stand For" would fit on any splatter rock collection, and if THE FARTZ version of "Buried Alive" was any faster, it'd be grindcore.
Plus, there's a bitchin' version of DISCHARGE's "State Violence, State Control". Damn, they thought of everything.(Peacedogman.com)

The Fartz - Because This Fuckin' World Still Stinks
Alternative Tentacles 1998 reissue CD, includes the 7" & 12" (1981-82)
See back cover for track listing:
Probably best known as Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan's original band (he was the drummer), and also home to future Accused frontman Blaine Cook, the Fartz were one of Seattle's earliest hardcore punk outfits, attacking governmental and religious corruption, racism, sexism, poverty, and the like. The band's original lineup included vocalist Cook (under the name "Blaine Fart"), guitarist Paul Solger, bassist Steve, and drummer Loud Fart, who was eventually replaced by McKagan. Few Seattle clubs were willing to book hardcore acts during the band's short lifespan, so the Fartz often found themselves scrambling for any exposure or opportunities to perform.
The Fartz's first record release came with a self-issued 7" EP in 1981; Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles label put out the Because This Fuckin' World Stinks EP later that year. The band's first full-length album, World Full of Hate, appeared in 1982, but even in spite of modest success overseas (one single reached the Top Ten on the NME's alternative chart), the frustration with Seattle's lack of opportunity took its toll. After the group broke up, Blaine Cook formed the Accused in 1984, while McKagan moved on to 10 Minute Warning and eventually Guns N' Roses. In 1998, Alternative Tentacles issued a thorough retrospective of the group entitled Because This Fuckin' World Still Stinks." (Steve Huey, All Music Guide)

1996 saw the release of the haunting and brilliant "LD Eye" cd, an amalgamation of the driving punk rock of the first two LPs with elements applied in Dart's Solo "Patricia" LP. Steve Merchant and Dart teamed up with bassist Dave Breher and guitarist Nat Warren to create the latest incarnation of the band, and the four musicians managed to pump out a 7 song, 42 minute opus of political distaste and social unrest, best described as "graveyard music" [stolen from the mouth of a clerk at a local record store,] due not only to general musical eerieness but equally to overall narrative tales of death, usually in a political or social context, and the dealings with thereof. After this release, the four-piece toured mildly with Dart also doing the occasional solo show, and any current plans and status are unknown by the world, keeping with the enigmatic edge inherent in all public interactions that the Crucifucks have laid down in their whole history.

The Crucifucks were a Lansing, Michigan-based punk rock band formed in 1982.
Throughout their 13-year career, the band had a revolving-door line-up, the only constant member being lyricist and frontman Doc Corbin Dart. Other members of the original line up included Dart’s cousin Joe on guitar, Scott F. on bass, and drummer Steve Shelley, who went on to play with Sonic Youth.
The band’s debut LP The Crucifucks — recorded in 1984 by Doc, Steve, guitarist Gus Varner, and Marc Hauser on bass — was released in 1985 on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label. Wisconsin followed in 1987, also on Alternative Tentacles. Between that album and 1996’s L.D. Eye, Dart recorded two solo projects, Patricia, on Alternative Tentacles in 1990, and Black Tuesday, self-released in 1991.
The Crucifucks compilation album entitled 'Our Will Be Done' was issued in 1992, combining the band’s first two LPs with a non-LP song, Official Terrorism, also featured on Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll’s compilation 'Welcome To 1984'. A picture of a Philadelphia police officer posing as shot — originally part of a public relations campaign to obtain wage concessions from the city was used on the album’s back cover. Four years later, its discovery by the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police led to a lawsuit against the Crucifucks, which was eventually dismissed.
According to Dart, the Crucifucks never "officially" broke up, but rather drifted apart due to a variety of reasons. The band re-formed in 1998 to perform at Alternative Tentacles’ twentieth year anniversary party at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, California. (Wiki)

Une compilation qui regroupe leurs deux albums de 1985 et 87. Un régal tant les Crucifucks se démarquaient par leur originalité avec leur punk rock si personnel; leurs convictions anarchistes et discours très agitateur, le chant complètement désaxé Doc Corbin Dart, lui-même suffisament désaxé pour avoir fréquenté des instituts psychiatriques, tout çà ajoute à la superbe de ce groupe inimitable... On aime ou on déteste, moi j'adore.
Les titres "Democracy Spawns Bad Taste" et "Pig In A Blanket" restent des hits immuables à mon humble avis, mais écoutez plutôt!

Black Market Baby was a Washington D.C. hardcore punk band. Formed by Boyd Farrell and Paul Cleary of Snitch (Cleary was also in Trenchmouth), with Keith Campbell of D. Ceats and Tommy Carr from the Penetrators.
In 1986, Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat recorded what would have been their second LP. When the band couldn't find a label to release the album they broke up, playing a farewell gig in January 1988. They loosely re-formed in 1993, playing the occasional show and recording sparingly before calling it quits again in 1997.(Wiki)
Unlike many of the bands of the time, Black Market Baby were not a speedy hardcore band, instead they had a bit more of a 1970s punk influence that came through their songs, but still had a bunch of energy and really wrote some great punk songs that sadly went overlooked by many. As time went by, BMB went in a bit more of a rock direction but never lost that punk feel and the later stuff was nearly as good as the early material.
They are a band who never put out a record unworthy of the vinyl it was pressed on. (Read complete review at PunkVinyl.com)
Du punk rock oldstyle comme il ne s'en faisait déjà plus à Washington DC tant l'emprise du hardcore speed était forte dans les 80s. Un peu à la manière d'un Gears californien mais en moins 'billy', ces oiseaux là font du hardcore comme on le pratiquait fin 70s, c'est rauque, rock et on scande des refrains à tue-tête sans se soucier de faire partie de tel ou tel mouvement... assurément rafraichissant et de qualité, jugez-en par vous même!

The Proletariat - Voodoo Economics and Other American Tragedies
Complete Catalogue 1981-1985. Taang! Records 2 CD 1998
See backcover for 45 tracks listing:
The Proletariat were a punk band from Boston, Massachusetts. They were active during the 1980s in the Boston Hardcore scene, despite their recorded output having a decidedly non-hardcore sound; The Proletariat show more strongly the musical influences of bands such as Wire, and Gang of Four in their angular guitar sound and Marxist-themed lyrics.(more on Wiki)
The Proletariat were way ahead of their time. Their melodic yet jarring sounds were cutting edge. The re-release of this disc by Taang shows off their pioneering efforts in the punk music genre, moving from many of the bands of that era which were pure noise, to a sound that was both hard-hitting yet attractive to a larger listening audience. They were Indie-trailblazers for political bands like Rage Against the Machine, and listening to their lyrics will clearly show this. It is a must buy for anyone that appreciates strong lyrics and a unique melodic punk sound. (more reviews at Amazon.com)
Boston fait ici encore figure de pionniers tant The Proletariat se démarque des autres par un son tout personnel, un chant scandé et des compos presque post-punk par moments. Leur engagement politique les a fait être taxés de commies (on sait quel accueil leur est fait outre-atlantique) et on ose imaginer que même au sein de la scène hardcore de l'époque ils n'étaient pas toujours vus d'un œil bienveillant. En vertu de quoi cette anthologie en deux CDs démontre bien de l'importance de ce groupe, Taang! ne s'y est pas trompé, nous non-plus. Et ce titre, bon-sang on peut pas faire plus actuel, non?!

12. Class War
Compilation of cuts from this seminal California punk trio that went onto become Rank And File.
Contains all three tracks from their 1977 7 inch single 'What', including the local underground hit 'I Hate The Rich', plus nine cuts from their rare 1980 (1987 released) live album 'Live!'.
Soon after forming in 1977 the band relocated to San Francisco, where they would have a significant influence on that city's embryonic punk scene (bassist Tony Kinman would play very briefly with San Francisco punk band The Avengers during 1977), and then Los Angeles, becoming one of the major bands in the early Los Angeles punk scene too. They were known for their conspicuous radical left politics, and for a strong melodic sense that earned them the nickname "punk rock Everly Brothers".
Their debut single was "I Hate The Rich" / "You're Not Blank" (the latter most famously covered by Minneapolis punk band Dillinger Four), on Los Angeles-based label What? Records (also home to The Germs, amongst others), originally released in 1977 in what collectors refer to as the "Oils" sleeve - the lettering chosen for the band's logo looking more like "The Oils" than "The Dils" at first glance. This was later reissued by the same label in a more easy-to-decipher font. Their next record was their critical high-point, 1977's "Class War" / "Mr.Big" (the former most famously covered by Canadian punks D.O.A., issued on L.A.'s groundbreaking Dangerhouse label, in a pressing of 1500 copies entitled "198 Seconds Of The Dils". The last contemporary release was a three-sided double-7", "Made In Canada", which showed a gathering roots rock orientation. The Dils broke up in 1980. (Wiki)
This is a reissue of the vinyl LP Live, a high-quality 1980 board tape released on Iloki/XXX in 1987. 'Class War' features a new title, new sleeve, new photos, and different liner notes. Additionally, the band's debut single is tacked on in lieu of the four poor quality live tracks from 1977 that closed out Live. The sound on the disc, recorded just before the trio sadly split up, is hotter than most bootlegs, offering a parade of neo-classics: "I Hate the Rich," "Class War," and an incredibly improved (slowed down) "You're Not Blank." (Fans will also recognize "The Sound of the Rain," a Dils single the Kinmans re-recorded for their second LP with Rank & File, 1984's "Long Gone Dead", as well as "Tell Her I Love Her," a hot song badly reworked for that same LP.) As John Silvers, the longest-running and best of four drummers who served with the pair, makes his vinyl debut here, even the material that's familiar from the singles (about half) sounds tighter and more powerful. (AMG review)
This CD is basically side 1 of the now impossible to find (trust me, I've tried) 1987 XXX posthumous "Live" album, and the "I Hate The Rich" single. But that's more then enough. I mean, it's got 2 versions of "You're Not Blank", the ultimate anti-hippie anthem. How can you go wrong? (Amazon.com)
The Dils, du punk rock 70s du plus bel acabit sans qu'il ait été immortalisé sur un album et c'est bien dommage quand on entend ce qui sort des enceintes: çà pête sec, çà cogne fort et c'est mélodique à souhait! Même si la plupart des morceaux sont enregistrés Live, c'est de qualité puisqu'on discerne bien les instruments et que la fougue transpire à flots dans une pagaille toute propre au style punk, transportés qu'on est par ces compos diaboliques et des refrains qui font toujours mouche! Ah ces frères Kinman, vous en reprendrez bien un peu mon cher? Oh que oui, merci Bacchus et tes sublimes archives!

Great Music from one of the finest bands of their time.
Any old time punk rocker and/or punk record collector will tell you they heard of The Alley Cats. They put out a 7″ on the legendary Dangerhouse Records label, a label that went down in history as releasing nothing but great punk records while the genre was still in its infancy. Every band on that label was unique, The Alley Cats being no exception. After their debut single, they sought greener pastures and released another 7″ on the Time Coast label, as well as a couple of LPs. Aside from the aforementioned singles, I never bothered to pick up anything else they released, thus I missed out on that stuff and never really knew what those records sounded like. Now I know some of what I missed out on, and I’m sorry it took me so long to find out!
The CD portion of this package contains ten songs, most of which I believe came from their Nightmare City LP. While the music on here was a bit more accessible than their first two singles, it really isn’t that big of a leap in sound, thus the music still has packs a pretty good punch and really sounds like a natural evolution from those early singles, while still retaining enough of that sound to appeal to fans of those singles. I was really surprised by how enjoyable I found the songs on here, I was half expecting this stuff to be really tame and instead I feel like I just unearthed a buried treasure. Why this stuff never became a lot more popular back when it was released is a mystery to me, it is just different enough to be “cool” and just accessible enough that it would have fit in alongside the more popular “new wave” acts of the time.
What you won’t find on here is the Dangerhouse records single (”Nothing Means Nothing Anymore/Gimme a Little Pain”, nor the Time Coast follow up (”Too Much Junk”), why the latter single was omitted is a mystery to me, it was on the same label as this stuff. Perhaps there will be a follow up collection someday that contains the rest of The Alley Cats material.
The bonus DVD contains five promotional type videos of “It Only Hurts the First Time”, “Today”, Night of the Living Dead” (two versions), and “Escape from the Planet Earth”. The footage for all of these videos came from the same source so they tend to look pretty much the same but the quality is excellent and it was really cool to see some early footage of this band to go along with the already great CD.
As a big proponent of old punk rock music getting reissued so the current generation can hear what they missed and old timers can revisit it without shelling out the big bucks, I heartily endorse this nice package and the CD portion of this release is going to be getting repeated listens for quite some time in the immediate future.(punkvinyl.com)
Dianne Chai, Randy Stodola and John McCarthy appear in rare 1979 Alley Cats Performance at The Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood combined with rehersal off-line tape footage. A real gem DVD!

Christ On Parade epitomized mid-’80s East Bay hardcore. With electrifying songs that embodied the scene’s youthful energy, anger and spirit, the group always practiced what they preached. Formed in 1985 by ex-members of minor threats Teenage Warning and peace punks Treason, the quintet thundered against Reaganomics, totalitarianism and crooked landlords with their jagged, post-adolescent calls-to-arms. As punk luminaries like Black Flag fizzled out, hardcore-metal crossover groups like DRI ascended the ranks and all underground bands took on the government, Christ On Parade perfectly expressed their musical and social growing pains on their debut, Sounds of Nature, which originally came out on Pushead’s label but the band is now re-releasing with bonus material on Neurot Recordings. The group featured vocalist Barrie Evans, guitarists Mike Scott and Noah Landis, bassist Malcolm Sherwood and drummer Todd Kramer. Some members lived in the East Bay’s legendary New Method Warehouse, and they would play shows with the likes of the Subhumans, Agnostic Front, the Circle Jerks and Conflict. (Read more!)
Christ On Parade joue pas dans la finesse, çà dépote et çà déboite à tout-va sans pour autant la jouer crossover comme ce fut le cas pour nombre de groupes hardcore passées les mid-eighties. Couverture signée Pushead sans surprise puisque édité sur son label à l'origine en 1985. Sans innover dans le style, ils apportent la dose massive de décibels et de chant corrosif auxquels on peut s'attendre d'un groupe anarcho punk dopé à la vitamine C comme CORE. A peine le temps de souffler sur l'intro de America The Myth et c'est reparti de plus belle, inutile de vous proposer une boisson, vous savez que vous allez transpirer!

Créé par d'anciens membres des groupes punk Sleepers et Negative Trend (SST records), Flipper enregistre à la fin de 1979 quelques pièces, qui seront disponibles sur les 7' SF Undeground, une série de compilations de Subterranean Records, un label formé par le chanteur Steve Tupper.
En 1981, Flipper lance son premier 7', Love Canal / Ha Ha Ha. Suivront les "Brainwash"/"Sex Bomb Baby" et "Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly"/ "Get Away". Puis seront lancés sur Subterranean les deux albums complets: Album - Generic Flipper (en 1982) et Gone Fishin' (en 1985).
Parfois plus expérimental que punk rock selon les standards du genre, le but de Flipper était d'être mauvais d'une manière dont aucun groupe n'avait été mauvais auparavant. Même avec cet objectif en tête, on doit admettre qu'ils ont manqué leur coup puisque, malgré l'irritation et le mépris qu'il suscitait parfois, leur renommée allait sans cesse grandissante dans le milieu underground de San Francisco, puis parmi les groupes qui suivront.
Le style de punk préconisé par Flipper était joué de façon plus lente et plus lourde que la majorité des formations punk de l'époque, ce qui a eu une certaine influence sur la scène grunge qui devait se développer ailleurs au milieu des années 1980.
Devenu populaire, Kurt Cobain de Nirvana fit plusieurs apparitions publiques et se laissa photographier à de nombreuses reprises avec un t-shirt de Flipper, ce qui a contribué à la renommée du groupe. De plus, The Melvins a lancé en 1990 un simgle vinyle comprenant deux reprises de Flipper (Love Canal / Someday) et offert une version en 1992 de la pièce Sacrifice sur leur album Lysol et qu'ils jouent de façon très personnelle au sein de leur projet avec Fantômas récemment.
Flipper était reconnu pour laisser le public monter sur scène pendant ses spectacles. Certains fans prirent rapidement l'habitude de déranger les musiciens lorsqu'ils jouaient, ce qui désaccordait les instruments et contribuait encore davantage au son distortionné et expérimental du quatuor.
La réputation du groupe était de faire davantage d'auto-promotion que de musique véritable. Ils étaient reconnus à San Francisco pour peinturer la ville avec des graffitis de leur logo: un poisson mort.
Des fans ont même transformé le signe Clipper Street en Flipper Street. Certains logos sont toujours visibles dans la ville, et des poissons morts peinturés sont apparus avec les années dans les toilettes du Vatican, sur le Mur de Berlin et sur la Grande Muraille de Chine!
En 1984, peu après la sortie de Gone Fishin' sur Subterranean, un label qui ne distribue que des cassettes audio, ROIR, rend disponible un enregistrement de Flipper au CBGB de New York. Ce spectacle sera disponible sur CD en 1990. Rapidement épuisé, il sera re-pressé en 2001.
John Lydon alors dans Public Image Ltd. fut accusé d'avoir volé l'idée de la pochette du premier album de Flipper pour son propre groupe. En représailles, le quatuor californien baptise son double album live Public Flipper Limited en 1986.
Le chanteur Will Shatter meurt en 1987 d'une overdose d'héroine, peu de temps après avoir créé un nouveau groupe A3I (pour: Any Three Initials, une manière de se moquer de tous les groupes punk ou hardcore dont le nom était un acronyme).
Un peu plus tard, Subterranean sort une compilation vinyle des enregistrements du groupe qu'elle juge les plus pertinents. L'album "Sex Bomb Baby" parait la même année. (voir les archives pour le rip)
True punk rock is about the attitude versus overt playing skills, which allows a band of marginal talent such as the legendary Flipper to not only get away with the screechy minimalist sound that seldom came into full cohesion during their cacophonous run through the underground, but to be unanimaously praised for it, to boot.
Flipper was the Andy Warhol punk band that Warhol never assembled himself. Footloose, manic, distortion-addicted and subtly brilliant, only the true punks (those who didn't need to dress the part to be real) and lovers of avant garde music could hack these guys, and that was the whole intent behind Flipper. If you could roll with Flipper, then that made you a de facto punker without needing to cite other in-the-loop names like Straw Dogs, The Germs, Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers, Dr. Know and the Adolescents. Granted, all of these bands were superior to Flipper in terms of genuine song structure (well, maybe not The Germs so much), but Flipper contained something real and honest amidst their deliberate chop and slop that was strictly for mutants and no one else. Mostly if anyone outside of the small circle of warped individuals that sustained Flipper's legacy dared take a listen, they cringed in absolute horror.
Perhaps it was the intent to be positively dreadful with paradoxical care and attention to their abruptly-slowed disorder that has endeared Flipper to many underground fans, but certainly no one was ready for the seven-minute garbage grunge of "Sex Bomb," which has since become Flipper's calling card. Prior to 1982, it was nearly unheard of (except maybe in The Stooges) to drone out a singular note with the spin cycled lyric of "She's a sex bomb...my baby...yeah," as Flipper seemingly grow bored with themselves with their one-shot fuzz-drained note wearing down in seemingly hackneyed fashion, but this was the method to Flipper's madness: issuing a game of Can You Take It? to their listeners, particularly in their zany live setting.
Flipper's notoriously bizarre form of junk punk is captured in hilarious fashion on Live Target Video - 1980-81, a 70-minute endurance test that will give you a screaming headache, even if you're a fan...especially if you're a fan, and that's alright by you, I'm sure.
Capturing performances in Berkeley and San Francisco, the striking difference between Flipper's aptitude is noticeable between the years these events went down, but if there's any real telling of what Flipper was about, it's the 1980 performance in a Berkeley new wave club, when they deliberately fuck things up and act like basement morons screwing around instead of performing to a modest-sized crowd filled with trendies, butchies, druggies, journalists and possible future Hollywooders (given their flashy club nouveau attire). As Bruce Loose and the late Will Shatter take turns passing the bass like a few roach clips and bongs get passed around the club (enjoy a great laugh as the camera repeatedly catches a mullethead toking on his hash pipe in the front row while dancing stupidly around), Flipper just pours on the nonsense without a funnel, going to such drastic lengths as to (literally) pound out chum bucket bass reverb on "One By One," then to rave like committed loons on "Ha Ha Ha" and "Oh, Oh, Ay Oh," followed by a prescribed torture of their audience in an endless barrage of repeat on "The Wheel."
Of course, the audience is so shitbombed they play along with Flipper and those who aren't laced up are somehow transfixed by Flipper's sheer disregard for cohesion as each band component is a little microcosm, with Bruce and Will pointing out chords to one another on the bass frets as if learning how to play on-the-job, while Vietnam vet Ted Falconi rapes his guitar with possessed shrieking that probably showed Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and The Pixies' Joey Santiago a few tricks or two. What's truly nutty is watching Steve DePace attempt to glue the whole freakin' mess together by playing serious and orderly beat lines (for what he had in his possession at the time) and it's all to no avail... A random trash ball whizzes past the band and so they play even ruder than before, refusing to let up as if inflicting punishment, to cease only when they feel like calling it a night. That's the heritage of Flipper...
With reunification plans to bring Flipper back to the masses with none other than Nirvana's Krist Noveselic assuming bass duties amidst the remaining three original members for a brand new album following the reissue of Flipper's entire catalog including the much-sought-after Blowin' Chunks, Gone Fishin' and Generic, consider this DVD an introduction if you're unfamiliar, a rare glance back at Flipper's weird cosmos of abstract clunk blasting. If this is your first time coming to Flipper, I recommend you premedicate. You won't ever forget the subsequent head throb if you don't... (Ray Van Horn Jr. The Metal Minute)
Enjoy & remember life is the only thing worth living for!

Violent Femmes - Live at the Hacienda
Cherry Red UK. DVD Release Date: December 11, 2007
The advertising for this item says the DVD contains two full live shows. The DVD in fact contains only one of the two shows listed on the back cover. The second show listed on the back cover is not on the DVD.
The one show on the DVD is a good show. But advertising and marketing it as two full shows is simply a lie, CherryRed you suck major dick!
Hacienda, Manchester, UK, September 1983:
01. Blister in The Sun
03. Country Death Song
04. Hallowed Ground
05. Prove My Love
06. Sweet Misery Blues
07. Gone Daddy Gone
08. I Hear The Rain
10. Black Girls
11. Gimme The Car
12. I Ain't Gonna Wait
13. Chinese Crib
15. It's Gonna Rain
16. Add It Up
17. Kiss Off
The textbook American cult band of the 1980s, the Violent Femmes captured the essence of teen angst with remarkable precision; raw and jittery, the trio's music emerged as the soundtrack for the lives of troubled adolescents the world over.
After being discovered by the Pretenders' James Honeyman-Scott, the Violent Femmes signed to Slash and issued their self-titled 1983 debut, a melodic folk-punk collection which struck an obvious chord with young listeners who felt a strong connection to bitter, frustrated songs like "Blister in the Sun," "Kiss Off" and "Add It Up." The album remained a rite of passage for succeeding generations of teen outsiders, and finally achieved platinum status.
The band temporarily split in the mid-1980's, but reformed in 1989 and have been touring and recording to the present day - still loved by their ever loyal fanbase around the world.
Lots of selling sites pretend this DVD lasts 120mn, but since there's only one show on it (marketing lies powa!), all you get is 73mn of happiness...
L'arnaque vous l'aurez compris, et merci CherryRed, c'est qu'il n'y a qu'un seul des deux concerts annoncés!

The Boat House in Norfolk, Virginia, was perhaps our most frequented venue for a period bordering on two decades. It was blown away in a hurricane a few years back. RIP. The site of many great and weird moments. My favorite memory was when a fool climbed up one of the pillars supporting the roof and started rappelling around on the microphone snake. We were blissfully performing one of our masterpieces when our reverie was interrupted by the voice of soundman Caleb Lentzner screaming over the talkback mike, "Hey, @#*hole, get down from there! Let go of the snake!"
The gig you are watching was memorable for being 130 degrees Fahrenheit onstage. I know that, because they had a thermometer up there. We wanted to record a lot of material, so we slaved away in that furnace for two hours. By the end we were totally drained. -Brian Ritchie

The Fantômas Melvins Big Band - Live From London 2006
Ipecac Recordings 2008 DVD
Recorded on May 1, 2006 at Kentish Town Forum, Live from London 2006 features the amassed crew of Mike Patton, Buzz Osborne, Dave Lombardo, Trevor Dunn, Dale Crover and Sir David Scott Stone.
Filmed by Douglas Pledger, Matthew Rozeik and Alex Gunnis the music is culled from the sole FantômasMelvins Big Band release (Millennium Monsterwork) as well as music from both the Melvins and Fantômas catalogues.
Bonus feature is an audio commentary with Danny DeVito, Ipecac co-owner Greg Werckman, booking agent Robby Fraser, Melvins' Dale Crover and Buzz Osborne.
if you're a FANTOMAS fan, you'll love it. a MELVINS fan - you'll probably like it, if you enjoy some of their more experimental stuff (there are a few classics on here though).
Dale Crover and King Buzzo, Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, and David Scott Stone crammed on a stage together.
2 drummers, a bassist (sometimes 2), and a guitarist (mostly 2), oh and also samples, noise, and vocals. all at the same time, a meshing of MELVINS and FANTOMAS simultaneously. songs from both bands performed by all.
If you liked the CD they put out a few years back, you'll definitely dig this DVD. A lot of the same tracklist, but still a lot of new stuff, along with this very special cover version of Flipper's "Sacrifice" starting the show.
The sound is great (super heavy), plenty of cameras wich alternates between crystal clear high definition and darker and grainy image with a light 'splash' of camera effects and graphics.. sometimes it's like watching a horror film from the 70's. It is done in a very artistic taste and it succeeds in creating a proper atmosphere.
If you're not familiar with the music, it's difficult to explain. This (FANTOMAS) is not improv, it's calculated, written, noise.
Having the albums really makes you appreciate the show because you can see the precision and try to imagine the rehearsals. Craziness.
MELVINS are beyond description - heavy, classic, unlike anyone else, the best.
Really good stuff, great bargain, and highly recommended.
Dale needs mentioned more, PHENOMENAL drummer. how he just walked in, picked it up, and obliterated it - Not being a member of FANTOMAS and playing alongside another unreal drummer - wow.

Welcome to the wild world of the Queers on this their very first DVD! It features footage of all the live energy and behind-the-scenes craziness of the Queers on tour around the world circa '93 to '05.
Also included are interviews, music videos, and an unreleased animated video.
You'll witness all the different lineups with Hubie, Bface, Wimpy, Danny Vapid and a cast of others.
"Its been about 20 years since the first 7" was released so we figured it was time for a DVD. Besides being able to play with many great bands it has been awesome to make friends all over the world from Japan to Brazil to Europe and beyond." - Joe Queer
The New Hampshire natives call themselves the Queers not because of a sexual orientation but more to poke fun at a ritzy snobby community that they resided in at the time of the band's conception in 1982. They also wanted to give themselves a band name that people would remember.
Their sound is street punk mixed with pop punk. To me they are a wilder Ramones type band that loves to sing about girls, drugs, and just having fun. They played out from 1982 to 1984 and then reformed in the 1990's with a new line up and have pretty much been playing out since then.
Starting with a classic punk rock beginning, the DVD starts with the Queers playing at what looks to be small club or even VFW hall when all of the sudden lead signer Joe King (a.k.a. Joe Queer) starts yelling at a kid in the crowd "Stop F*cking with the roadie!" Apparently the kid had something smart to say back to Joe Queer and he called to have the kid removed from the scene. All of the fans start laughing and point at the kid as he gets ejected from the show — classic. (rest of the review...)

The Slog Movie
Mvd Visual 2003 DVD
Company: We Got Power Films
Director: David Markey
A fly on the wall look at Southern California's exploding hardcore punk scene in the early 1980's. More like a xerox fanzine than a glossy MTV document, "The Slog Movie" is one of director David Markey's early films, and is a baby brother to his film ten years later "1991 The Year Punk Broke".
Like that film, The Slog puts the viewer right there, in the middle of the madness, leaving them to draw their own conclusions, totally atypical of 99% of most rock docs.
Featuring Circle Jerks, Black Flag (uncredited, due to Greg Ginn's insanity), Fear, Red Cross (before they became Redd Kross), TSOL, Sin 34 (Markey's band), The Cheifs, Circle One, & Symbol 6.
We Got Power Films presents David Markey's 1982 homespun documentation of the Los Angeles/Orange County early 80's hardcore punk scene. A unique look at an era, left of field even by it's peers 'The Decline Of Western Civilization' and 'Another State Of Mind'. Like a fanzine on film, The Slog Movie has an intimate fan/ backstage/ on stage feel. Markey shot this film on Super-8 in 1981 and '82 while he was editing We Got Power fanzine and playing drums in Sin 34. Interviews, incredible live performances, and humorous interludes with Circle One, Symbol 6, Wasted Youth, Red Cross, TSOL, The Cheifs, Sin 34, Fear, Circle Jerks, and Henry Rollins, Chuck Dukowski, Robo & Dez Cadena (Black Flag) . See glimpses of scenesters such as Pat Smear and Randy Rampage hanging out at Oki-Dogs; Jordan Schwartz as himself, Ted Nugent, & The Devil in a Ray Pettibon skateboard commercial; gigs at the Whisky A Go-Go, Cuckoo's Nest, Bards Apollo, Club 88, and the Santa Monica Pier. The DVD includes a gig flyer gallery and a running commentary from David Markey, Circle Jerks' Keith Morris, the Minutemen's Mike Watt, and We Got Power's Jordan Schwartz.
A history lesson from the So Cal early 80's hardcore underground.
See the Los Angeles Hardcore scene explode, and in retrospect connect the dots from 1981 to 1991, 'The Year Punk Broke'.
In the early 1980's Dave Markey put out a fanzine called We Got Power, which documented the punk/early hardcore scene. We Got Power also produced compilations of Southern California bands, and eventually put out films like The Slog Movie and the punk/cult B-movie Desperate Teenage Lovedolls. Markey would later put out the documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke which basically covered the rise of the "grunge" movement and how it brought more mainstream acceptance to punk rock music and its offshoots.
The Slog Movie is a very low-budget, unpretentious look at the West L.A. hardcore punk scene circa 1981-82. Anyone who is into early punk music and history would be advised to check it out.[...]
[...] The film was made with both humour, heart and gritty realism hidden within the confines of its own medium. I've often wondered if Dave Markey ever realized how appreciated this film would remain within the punk scene for years to come. Seeing this film for the first time held a magnitude of power within it's small time frame capsule of 1981-1982. I think it means more to me now to see it than it did then as so many people are either gone, absent or missed. Circle One (John Macias-R.I.P.), Sin 34 (the complete "Trip to San Francisco" clip), The Chiefs (very underrated), Redd Kross (shortly after the name change from Red Cross I think), Wasted Youth, T.S.O.L., Circle Jerks, Fear and Black Flag.[...]

Groupe punk d’Ulster, formé en 1977, Stiff Little Fingers réalisent en quatuor un premier album intitulé 'Inflammable material', plein de fougue et de hargne dans une critique sociale d'actualité. Ils développent sur plusieurs albums leur sens de la mélodie nerveuse en évoluant vers un punk rock plus pop mais sans compromission commerciale.
This 16-song set was filmed & recorded on the Hope Street Tour in December '98. It's presented here in Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and features an exclusive interview with Jake Burns. "The "Hope St." tour was among the most successful we have ... Full Descriptionundertaken in recent years and I don't just mean from the point of view of attendances, although those were encouragingly up as well. What happened was everyone played better, laughed more and generally had more fun on the road than we'd had in ages. It really was a shame when the whole thing stopped." (Jake Burns)

The Vandals est un groupe de punk rock américain, formé à Huntington Beach en 1980. Le groupe a publié 10 albums studio et un live et a fait des concerts dans le monde entier dont plusieurs participations au Vans Warped Tour. Le groupe est très connu pour sa capacité à écrire des textes humoristiques et ironiques, préférant utiliser leur musique plus pour s'amuser et amuser le public plutôt que pour aborder des sujets sérieux.
Le lineup a beaucoup changé pendant les neuf premières années du groupe, même si Steven Ronald "Stevo" Jensen, le guitariste Jan Nils Ackermann, et le premier vrai batteur Joe Escalante sont toujours présents. Des premiers membres, seul Escalante est resté malgré les nombreux changements. Le lineup actuel comprenant Escalante, Dave Quackenbush, Warren Fitzgerald, et Josh Freese est reste inchangé depuis 1990 et est généralement considéré très éloigné du premier groupe du début des années 80. Depuis 2002 Escalante a sorti tous les albums du groupe sur le label Kung Fu Records avec en général Fitzgerald à la production.
Directed by Jeff Stein (The Kids are Alright), with 5 cameras and a 16 track analog soundtrack, this is a documentation of a classic Vandals Orange County performance from early in their career and is one of the seminal punk concert videos. The video is laced throughtout with hilarious personal profiles of its members within chaotic yet tight live stage performances.
