    My Shadow and Turning Blue are awesome songs, the rest of Blood Visions is unimpressive but he is incredible live. Why was there not a punk rock thread before this?

    Yes, this thread was way overdue.

    Get Smart, I'm a big fan of The Briefs as well.

    Also, I like the old stuff too. I've been listening to this constantly for the past month:

    Aqui d'el Rock - Há Que Violentar o Sistema

    Mind-blowing Portuguese punk from 1978. They only have 4 recorded songs I think, reissued on a pretty sweet 7" by Italy's Rave Up records.

    Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols...

    Followed by the indignity of having to order the following "imports" from the local record store and waiting 2 weeks for them to arrive:

    Exploited
    Varukers
    Chaos UK
    UK Subs
    Charged GBH
    Antinowhere League

    And slowly branching from there into domestic stuff like Dead Kennedys, TSOL, Vandals, Butthole Surfers, and Minor Threat.

    Chaos UK "No Security" still one of the baddest motherfucking punk songs ever played.

    great recent clip of one of my fave oi-punk bands from early 80s, the Cockney Rejects, still rocking hard and not looking too shabby (aka fat)

    Oi Oi Oi!

    it still blows my mind they play pennywise out on the radio here. Who the fuck still listens to pennywise?
    ^[email protected], IIRC [​IMG]
    haha, good memory, and polyrock....maybe ill time you out for daring to inadvertently question my authoritah [​IMG] but seriously.....
    That band was so good in the beginning, esp the first couple on Epitaph records. First time we saw em was at some backyard BBQ party when their first 7" came out and we were like "who the fuck is this band pennywise". Too bad they've become the "Extreme-Bro" band of choice
    ...Jason nailed it right there. I still listen to a few Pennywise tracks from that Unknown Road/About Time kinda era. Don't think I have even heard anything they have recorded since.

    Growing up where I did, there weren't too many opportunities to see shows, but here are some of the bands that I caught during high school:

    Bad Brains
    Dead Milkmen
    7 Seconds
    Fugazi
    All
    Corrosion of Conformity
    Butthole Surfers

    ^^ that's a great list of bands to have seen

    For me the 90s were the dark ages for punk/hardcore but some of the bands that I really liked were hardcore groups that kept the older sound alive

    One Life Crew
    Floorpunch
    Ignite

    It did weird me out when I started going back to hardcore shows around 2000 and all the kids were doing the "picking up the change/floorpunching/kungfu" dance style. No more circle pits at hardcore shows [​IMG]

    no OLC werent racist. Sketchy as fuck? sure. racist? nope. I've hung out with John Lockjaw and he's cool as hell. Even did backing vox with my former oi band on one of his projects that Vic from Beyond/Inside Out recorded.

    damn it's a small world. I started in 88 with a midnite shift then we (The Jonestown Junkies) had our primetime gig from 9-midnite on Mondays from 89-91. Also did a ska/skinhead reggae show for a short time in 89, and funny thing is that this guy Bradford J. Stein (who went by the alias Tazy Phillips) got partnered up with me since he wanted a ska show but the station only wanted one so they asked if I could duo with him, I said sure, and the nonsense that became The Ska Parade happened. [​IMG]

    If you were there prior to 87, maybe you remember the Generic Eric show? He did the all punk show before I came aboard, and happens to be one of my closest friends still today.


    I was there in 86, but only for a semester. I can hardly remember any people at the station. But have a vague recollection of Generic Eric. I had a jangly-pop show on Friday mornings 6-9. The format was basically anything with a Rickenbacker and some reverb. Not very punk rock.
