Get Smart,

That's great. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Keep this thread going. You've posted some pretty catchy stuff so far from a bunch of bands I've never heard of before.

Here's another cool LA powerpop-punk band, The Redhearts tho I'll have to admit they were visually more fun to watch live when it was the singer + 2 chicks. And it looks like they're putting out a record on April77's label and more LA powerpop-punk....my buds The Issue This San Diego band is the modern re-incarnation of The Buzzcocks, groove with The Powerchords

Stiff Little Fingers' Inflammable Material is a favorite of mine.

totally. gonna see them on the 4th, should be great...the original bassist is playing in the band again. Tho I think it's interesting that Bruce Foxton was a "Finger" longer than he was a "Jam" but no one ever thinks of him as a Finger.

I remember when I was a lot younger than I am now (i'm only 22) I was listening to Nirvana unplugged in New York and then my cousin called me (who was a huge influence in my musical stylings) and was like "are you still listening to that nirvana and guns and roses crap" (she got me listening to that "crap" haha). She told me to listen to Screeching Weasel and Bad Religion and NOFX.

I remember those 3 bands being the first "punk" bands I ever listened to. I think the albums were Boogadaboogadaboogada!, some Stranger than Fiction and older BR, and NOFX was probably Ribbed or SandM airlines.

this thread made me think about those days...good times.

A lot of the bands spoken about in this thread are pretty old or I just don't know them. But i'm glad this thread was made its awesome.
post #128 of 471
Yeah I am more of the Guttermouth, Screeching Weasel, Vandals, Pennywise, Rancid, Bad Religion, plus some Aussie bands like Frenzal Rhomb and Bodyjar rather than the older stuff that this thread focuses on. Wonder if anyone else here was at Board in Orange County and Board in the South Bay way back in 95....

This thread just reminded me of the first time I jumped into a mosh pit at an MDC show at the local community center. Must have been '83 or '84.

Shoreman,

Brutal Knights are pretty great. The Feast of Shame and The Pleasure is all Thine LPs are both excellent but I wouldn't search too hard for the early 7"s unless you're a collector. I haven't heard the new full-length yet but the tracks I've listened to sound pretty good. I've seen them live a couple of times and they're a lot of fun - expect lots of rolling around on the floor and possible nudity. The songs are retarded in a good way and totally unpretentious.

Toronto has had a really good scene going on for the last few years:

The afore-mentioned Brutal Knights

The much hyped Fucked Up, who put out a series of awesome 7"s then I kind of lost interest in the later projects.

Career Suicide
- Fast 80's hardcore done right.

Terminal State - More hardcore.

The Bayonettes - Great catchy girl-fronted punk.

And the list goes on. These are my personal favourites from Toronto though.

Something a bit different:

Les Breastfeeders
are a band from Montréal that do kind of a 60s garage/yéyé/pop thing with just enough punk mixed in to keep me interested.

They are great live and they have a tambourine player who seems slightly deranged and very sweaty and crawls around on all fours through the crowd.

I had just moved out of OC by 95, what is "Board"?

But Guttermouth were friends of the band I was in back then...and Clint Guttermouth was the bassist in the band I played in '96 and I still keep in touch with him.

Board in OC and Board in SB were the SoCal surfpunk festivals at Cal State Dominguez Hills over a weekend. The year after it grew into a little concert called the Warped Tour.
