Born in raised in Portland.
On the prowl for an easy, no-stress job (hint, hint, PDXers).
Usually I do food sevice (as a cook) or I hustle my way through life doing odd jobs- which is right now... Music consultation for businesses, house-sitting, olive oil bottling, used-book selling, whatever.
I found this board cuz I like me some Goner records, had been following the "Memphis Scene" since HS, etc. etc.

What I "do" is rock. HA!

I'm from memphis. my little brother kept pestering to go see all these bands and for a long time I ignored him. he was the pesky kid brother right? turns out he was onto something. then I met this guy that was in a band and he echoed everything kid brother ever told me about music and dragged me to all these shows. now I am addicted.
i used to have a "real" job but i quit to go back to college after about a 12 year break.

I am from Wisconsin. A nice little trek from Brad's town, about 45 minutes. Born in Escondido, CA and call Wisconsin home since age eleven. I build websites and design print material for morons who pay lots of money for it. I only see a little bit of the money though. I spend most of my day surfing various message boards, myspace, internet porn, stupid games, ebay and record distros wishing I had more money to buy more great stuff.

After an "awhning..." day at the office I spend lots of time in Green Bay where I make noise, do drugs, drink booze, listen to records and forget a lot of things. It's about a 30 minute drive from where I live in Appleton. Appleton is a thriving community for wealth and makes me fucking sick. I want to kill mostly everybody I run into except my family and close friends.

Once the night has come to a closing end, I pass out somewhere in my house and hope I don't wake up the next morning.

i'm from LA - probably older than most people here. lived in NYC for the past 18 years. spent 10 years living 1/2 in LA and 1/2 in London. for the last 16 months, i've been traveling - never spent more than 3 consecutive months anywhere. i have no idea which state i'm gonna pay my 2005 state taxes in.

worked in tv/film & music biz most of my career; am a lawyer by education, a cinematographer and photographer by choice and a tv network executive when i need money

greg cartwright and jack yarber are my favorite songwriters who aren't old/dead black guys or ancient bards.
once when i was on one of those big corporate executive level retreats, i took my co-workers from vh1 to see the oblivians in paris when they said, "you like music... what should we see tonight?" they lasted less than 10 minutes. i was hoping to get fired (i like the wrong kind of music for vh1) but no dice

when i started exhibiting my punk photos and had the reigning sound play one of my opening events, greg suggested i contact eric about showing at the store, and i started posting here to get an idea of what kind of stuff you were all interested in. and here i remain

i spend all day on the computer touching up photos in photoshop so i find relief from that concentration by reading all kinds of trash online - and there are some folks here who deliver the best trash on the planet - adn i mean that in a good way

I work writing internal communications for the credit card division of a huge bank. We were just taken over by a huger bank, who will allegedly start monitoring our internet usage when we go to a new 'net platform. I'm not very busy at all, so if I have to curtail my time on the Goner board and other sites, I'm going to be VERY bored. The job is too easy and relatively well-paying for me to leave it voluntarily.

I'm a big fan of trashy rock n' roll and the Oblivians are one of my fave bands. I used to spend a lot of time on the Garagepunk board. One day, it was down, due to a hacker. I logged on here that day and I discovered I liked the free-for-all format a little more. I still go on Garagepunk daily and it's a good tool, but I find Goner more exciting. Where else can people talk about KOOGLE peanut butter, King Louie, and the Beach Boys in the same place?

I watch a lot of TiVo and play in a 2-piece rock n' roll band called the Touch-Me-Nots in Oakland, CA.

I am from Great Lakes state, or the Un-employment state. Currently i have no job, although i start a new one tommorrow thru temp service. I suffer from depression now and then( having the worst economy in the country makes a lot of stress here..) it turns me into a sack of shit. I play in a noise band with some friends.. we sound like Accept. Once and while me and Useless Eater go to IHOP. I used to collect bottle caps as a kid, then i dropped my jar of bottle caps.. and i cried. More to come....

I's born and raised in Memphis; I'm also one of the old ones on this board. I'm a housewife, with three boys. Well, I don't have a husband, so I don't guess housewife is the exact terminology for it. I really need a job...probably will wind up working at the Walgreens before the year is out. I really think I'm too smart for that, though.
I take photos and do collage for fun, no profit.
I've been going out in Memphis since time began...I've seen lots of music here, then no music, now kind of lots of music again. I don't exactly know I how came to be on this board, but I can be found most often talking about Memphis.
I'm very shy, and you can be sure I've been drinking most of the time when I post.

the only reason why I'm here is because I was vanity googling "dutch hercules" to see what he was up to. We hadn't kicked it in a few years because I was a being a bitch, so I started posting, we drank and watched Zardoz, good pals again.

I like good music, and buy Goner records. I dj on 100w radio station playing similar shit since 1997. Used to slang videos, quit that job last week. Got a BA in jack shit, drive a mufucking Killed In Action, got a sweet Ibanez for Xmass from inlaws. Dutch and I jam sometimes.

My claim to Goner fame is when Kalamazoo posse rolled to Memphis for Rockening, eating City Ham and eggs and chugging PBRs, pungent brew. Waiting in line to buy some records from Zac, I fart, wife takes the fuck off, Joe looks at me, Cijahd looks at Joe "dude, did you just shit on me?" Sorry.

I drink too much.
I smoke too much.
I spend too much.
I trust too much.
I crush too much.
I eat too much.
I cuss too much.


Oh and same as Brad, I was a big-nerdy Oblivians fan, Eric started Goner Records and the board followed in, uuumm, 1997 - I dunno. I posted off and on in the beginning -- I was afraid to post since everyone was such smartasses -- well, not much has changed in that respect, except, I may have become a little crotchety also.

apparently kalamazoo owns this bitch, or apparently theres nothing to do here except show off your new haircut at the greentop or talk smack on the...(((shiver)))...goner board . actually thanks to blackjack we get to see some of you guys play at our hippy bar cuz no other place in town wants the punk rock shows. we got our share of jerkoffs, but we also got useless, dutch, junior, and some other kids i aint figured their goner name. we got X offender and the metal teeth. we got the burning hatreds and the clams. throbbin urges comes over to hang out and there's a bunch of other shit too.

i got a couple of degrees in environmental work, and worked for a company for 7 years before they ran out of relatives to give promotions too. i live in a warehouse/ studio and just started working in the basement building high performance drag/ralley transmissions. i fuckin love it. we're lookin to move shop out west next year.

i sometimes to tattoo work on the side, after that business with friends fell through. one of those jerks lives in memphis and works at "trilogy" i think. his name is joe and if you if you stop in there to get some "work", tell him "pony says hey!"

I came to the Goner board because Guitar Wolf likes Goner and I decided to check it out. I am still here because alot of the people here know about good music.
Posted: Feb 8, 2006 12:30 am
 
goner released some of my records.
i stick around because everyone here loves me and lives vicariously through me. you know.........danger. occasionally i piss people off with my sharp tongue. i blow minds for a living.

I work for a record label specialising in music you have no interest in. I dont have an interest in it either but I pretend like I do for the sake of work. I also DJ parties in New York, where I live, wih my girlfirend who posts here every so often under the handle "sixteene." I love alot of new music but I mostly buy old stuff cuz I don't have enough to buy it all. Also I like Twizzlers and the alligator bob and my favorite drama movie is Blood Sucking Freaks, just like yo mama.

I live in Columbus with my husband, who also posts here under "nicksname". We are in a 3-piece called Grave Blankets with this other crazy dude. Nick started posting here first, and I would accidentally read shit over his shoulder and laugh, so now I'm addicted. I love the Oblivians and the entire family tree. I missed the reunion because I have the worst luck known to man and I should be dead already. I work for a humungus credit card bank and it sucks really bad, but they pay me ok. Otherwise, people on this board know their shit, and I like that.
Posted: Feb 8, 2006 1:18 am
 
And I come here all the time cuz Oblivians fans are the best people (read: USUALLY not closed minded garage nazis) and cuz Eric O is the coolest mofo ever.

i agree
i like goners
i like goner music
i like knowing i'm not the only person in the world who is into crappy underproduced rock

I grew up in Memphis but moved to NYC to work for an entertainment network. After about 5 years in the city, 1500 things led me back to my hometown and after starting a couple of blogs I started doing freelance music writing. Now I write a weekly column for the Commercial Appeal and several music websites.

I found the Goner Board after falling head over heels for Harlan T. (P.S. big story coming out in Friday's playbook). I've done stories on Eric and Zak, Greg O., Jack O. and now Harlan. I'm pretty much trying to make my way through the back catalog.

For the most part I stay out too late and spend too much money.

the oblivians were the best band in the history of the world. they are at the top of the holy trinity. jay reatard sits at the right hand of them, and king louie is the holy spirit of rock n roll.

we are just their disciples.


are you done jizzing in your pants? jeezus

i live in dallas and work as an assistant editor in a film production studio. i graduated college last year and i'm trying to build my resume to move to a new company that edits more interesting things. on the side i'm working on a documentary on dallas and denton area bands because i just enjoy it. i think i noticed the goner board when the garagepunk.com board got boring. i stayed because it's funny.
Posted: Feb 8, 2006 2:05 am
 
I found Goner while on a government scheme in 2000 when they let us use the internet so I used it to see if there were any modern garage bands who didn't suck (I knew only Teengenerate and Guitar Wolf at the time). First band I found was Teenage Rejects then eventually found the Oblivians via Guitar Wolf and then Goner. I didn't know about the board for ages, I used to like just reading the stuff on the site. I got to meet tons of people from this board and they didn't turn out to be weird or anything!

I am an academy award winning actress....(duh!)
I am forced to read this jarggin every now and then by the director of an up and coming movie which I can't name. It has to do with "garage" rock and my role is very vital to the development of the charcter (as usual). Sometimes I feel bad for the pathetic individuals who have never had the opprotunity to attend a "finishing-manners" type school or who haven't been born with the esteemed ability of emminating a sense of "class" like I have. So I attempt to whip them into shape the best way I can with fun,whimsical posts that would hopefully make them strive for working those extra hours washing dishes or shoveling hay (i don't really know what YOU people do!! ha-ha. thank god....) so that one day they might be able to afford my perfume/movies/dvd box sets etc.... I live in New York (civilization) because the food/fashion.. is FANTASTIC. To bad it's so hard to find good help these days.

BUY MY PERFUME!

You should see my Libety Land solution over in the "memphis" section of the board. Again, a fine example of my willingness to help!!!!

Like Theresa, I'm one of the more senior members of the board...I probably belong more on the Bomp list, but it's so boring compared to Goner.

My family's from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and that's where I went to high school, eh.

I met Eric through my good buddy Eddie who does Down in the Alley on WEVL Friday mornings. I was living across the river in Jonesboro then (1998-2001). If you saw either of the Skatalites 2 shows at the Hi-Tone in 99 and 2000 that was me DJing between sets. I dug Memphis the most but just couldn't take Jonesboro any longer, so I took a job in San Jose, America's most boring large city, in 2001. I go to SF a lot for bands...finally saw the Reigning Sound several months ago. I was worried that I'd be let down after all the buildup, but no, they were great.

I lived in Austin from 1989-1998, where my ex-wife kicked my ass and forced me to get a library science degree. Now I have a decent job and am forever grateful to her. I used to enjoy the Sons of Hercules, Big Drag, the Dropouts, the Shindigs, and lots of others. It was a fun time to be in Austin. I started the Jamaican Gold show on KOOP (still running today) in 1994.

I faithfully attend the Ponderosa Stomp every year - bought a big pile of records from Eric at the first one.

I don't know as much about newer bands as most others on this board - nothing much happens in SJ and I can't really go out on weeknights anymore. But some bands I've seen lately and liked include the Red Onions from LA and Nagg from SF.

Sorry to go on for so long but hey, I'm older and have more history.

My name's Paul and I am of Finnish descent and used to live in Arkansas, hence the handle.

Pleased to meet you all! This thread was a great idea.

My name is Sarah, duh. I signed on cause my friend from college (sambeux) got married and announced it here, and I wanted to congratulate him and his lady. I live in Chicago, where I go to shows, get drunk and sometimes hassle the members of headache city cause that makes me laugh. I sell records at a store that banned HozAc..haha! and I go to community college. This board keeps me from my studies. I went to the goner store once with arman and I bought a great lp by the move.

just a little more about myself,
i'm working on an integrated studies degree with emphases in english and communications and my plans are to do a grad program in american studies where i can really concentrate on folklore theory, and hopefully my obsession with cultural theory can bear some fruit. i'm intrigued beyond measure with music and the communities in which it develops. hence my ulterior motive for posting this thread. you all might be guinea pigs for my masters thesis.
right now i'm team teaching a class on folk music at the college i attend, U.V.S.C. (its the little one in orem utah that tried to keep michael moore from coming and speaking), and music communities are the main focus of the class, and the students get to hear about the goner board, goner records, goner rock, and anything goner-related at LEAST once a lecture.
i play in a terrible rocknroll trio that only hardcore kids and psychobilly kids come to see.
i'm fucking homesick for memphis for about 12 hours everyday.

I live in Ohio and work in a hospital laboratory in a small hospital. A degree that takes most people 5 years to finish took me 8 because I spent most of my time sucking at playing guitar (still do) and trying to play in a band. I'm oldish (39) but feel like I'm still 18 so my son and I go to concerts together alot which is alternately cool and not cool. I drink Pabst Blue Ribbon and did it way before it was cool. My wife goes to alot of shows too but only because she's still under the impression that she's a princess and wants to look good in public (which she does). She loves PBR possibly more than I do but also has a fondness for Rolling Rock. If there was a perfect woman for me, though, she's it, princess obsession or not. I have two kids and two dogs which we rescued from the pound. Just the dogs, the kids are ours.

I found the Goner board while searching for Oblivians stuff like alot of other people here although I will admit that I was late to finding the Memphis music scene as Detroit and Ohio music were always my passion. I live in a very rural area and grew up with parents and grandparents that were farmers so I was a late bloomer when it came to finding all the music that is out there (we're backward bumpkins, one and all). I grew up on the Ramones, Dead Boys and AC/DC which was pretty far from what everyone else in my family and area actually were listening to so I always wondered where I fit in 'cause it sure as hell wasn't here in BFE. I've always been into "punk rock" (I hate musical labels but use it here anyway) and its various forms and always will be so I read this board daily for ideas of what else I can listen to even if I don't post much.

For wasting my spare time, I'm obsessed with amateur photography (since my guitar playing has pretty much stopped advancing for, well, quite awhile) although I'm much better at inanimate objects and scenery than I am with people and moving stuff but I'm working on that. I won 15 ribbons at our local fair this year, the first time I've ever entered anything in photography (yee-hawww....that was added for bumpkin effect). I love Twizzlers and pizza, workout only so I can eat more food, and hate it that I lost $10 on the Super Bowl. That was $10 which could have gotten me into another Detroit Cobras' show or bought a couple of 45s. I also am ridiculously silly in that I love having musicians autograph my stuff which I know is lame but don't really care.

If you're still reading this then you are my friend of the day. Here's a Twizzler.

I grew up in boston, lived in nola from 93-95 and visited at least every couple years. I think I first came here last year around this time when I was fixin' to visit nola and wanted to see what was going on. I moved back to boston because (a) the wages were much higher and (b) the crime lower. I'm working as a legal secretary and am hoping to open an online shop soon with handmade clothing and purses.

I just remembered, it was my old roommate Dave who turned me onto the Goner Board. He kept showing me Chris Alienator posts. I don't know if anybopdy here knows where Chris is. A couple years before that I was actually looking at the Goner site as an O's fan (pre-board: is that right or did I just miss seeing it?) and I spent all my time looking at the Links. This site has the greatest links pages. I used to laugh myself into a crying fit at the Engrish site. And this was when I was living in Las Vegas. I grew up and cut my DJ teeth there. I first registered for this board on my birthday 4 years ago in a class I was substitute teaching.

My wife Nathalie is a huge reatards and lost sounds fan but doesn't like the internet nor this board. My two little sons are into king kahn. I'm listening to the final solutions right now and am also a wine aficionado and a birdwatcher. I visited the US of A three times. I work for the local government.

My life now is like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, I see the same thing over and over again, day in, day out. One day soon it will all be over and I will turn off my alarm clock in another time zone. I'm waiting for the day when I see the reactions to my departure, until then I'm totally freaking out and partying like its 1999.

This is a nice string. I'm trying to remember how I ended up on the Goner Board. I'm not sure but suffice to say it is my alternative to MySpace, which I'm prohibited from at work.

I live in Columbus Ohio and have for most of my life. I've travelled fairly extensively; NYC, SF, LA, Seattle, PDX, Memphis, Atlanta, Toronto, DC, Chicago.

I am married to Dana Hatch of Cheater Slicks and we have a little girl named Violet.

I've always loved rock and roll. I listened to my brother's albums on a turntable when I was a little girl- Beatles, Led Zep et al is what I cut my teeth on... Got into the Columbus rock scene from about 17 on- hung out w/ Painful Discharge, Gibson Bros, Gaunt, Pica Huss, the New Bomb Turks, Monster Truck 5 etc... Checked out national acts, put bands up in our apartments whenever we could... saw the Cheater Slicks on the Fireworks tour before I'd ever met them. (My friend Emily and I used to listen to Destination Lonely and Don't Like You in her apartment and talk about how 'sensitive' they seemed!)

My brother always played guitar, and my first "singing gig" was doing falsetto AC/DC covers with him and a few other guys. In '91-'92 I was in an all girl punk rock band called the Lovin' Mouthful; in '04 we re-formed with a new drummer under the name Local Hero but we only played 2 gigs, then I got pregnant and everything kinda fell by the wayside. We are going to start practicing this weekend with our 3rd drummer but the name isn't decided upon yet. Figure let's learn some songs first! We already have a gig in May at Surly Girl with Shell Shag. (Jen from Shell Shag was the drummer in the Lovin' Mouthful; when she moved to SF we broke up.) I am still convinced if the LM had stayed together, we could have made it big! We had something really special...

My big brag about the Lovin' Mouthful in hindsight is when Dana and I first started going out, I had a video of some of our live shows, and I was going to show it to him, Gene Mullett, Mick Collins, and I think Tom and Dave Shannon were there- at Gene's house one day (when Dana still lived with him.) Dana had never seen the video and tried to discourage me because he thought they'd all eat me alive or tear it up or something. But they didn't. They were all floored, flabberghasted, their jaws dropped. They couldn't believe it- they loved it. (What is flattering about this to me now is knowing how much it takes to impress this cowd, particularly the Slicks!) (Tom I hope you don't mind me telling this story!) --Also Jerry Wick formerly of Gaunt (RIP) once told me he thought I was a better songwriter than Marcy Mays of Scrawl, who was one of my idols in my formative punk rock grrrl years, so to me that was a high compliment. Dana also commented on the fact that our videos were filmed around the same time the Slicks were playing in Boston, and here, we had packed clubs full of enthusiastic fans for the Lovin Mouthful, and the video of them in Boston, from the back of the room, shows everybody in the audience leaving! (Hence their move to Columbus later on!) One of the ironies of life.

bill why did you leave out the part about you auditioning for clown college? don't sell yourself short, young man.
Posted: Feb 8, 2006 7:04 pm
 
OH DAMN! I forgot about that! Yeah, actually I auditioned for the Ringling Bros. Clown College (located in scenic Baraboo, WI) with a buddy of mine for an article he was writing for the Art Institute paper as a joke....it was basically alot of improv situation-type stuff...but we were apparently TOO good, 'cause afterwards, one of the co-cordinators (who actually IS/was a clown w/Ringling) comes up to us and says: "Hey I hope you guys definitely left us your contact info, because you were really great - we've seen alot of these faces here before & we know who's got it & who doesn't - you guys definitely have it....we'll be in touch!" - and he was.
About a month later I recieved an enrollment application/kit & he called me a couple of time to follow up....I had to break it to him that I was already in Art School & couldn't fit Clown College in my schedule....he told me to keep in touch in case I ever changed my mind....

I wonder if I could have done a double major?

damn.

My posting name is jonwayne, but my real name is Buford T. Justice. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. I didn't get along with my second harpooner, so I jumped overboard into the Pacific, where I was swept up by a band of wild dolphins, who allowed me to ride their backs to the nearest inlet. Upon landing, I thanked the dolphins for their time, lured them up onto the mainland (with a shiny mirror and a bucket of stale minnows) slit their throats with my rusty drumstick, and drank their sweet dolphin blood (a well known Polynesian aphrodisiac).

I fell in with a group of scoundrels--bad, evil men, some of them with facial hair--and we languished in a well-lit kitchen, sometimes until two or three in the afternoon, laughing at our own foul jokes and quaffing large amounts of a foul tea brewed by our bass player, Mr. Andy Cigarettes. Verbal misunderstandings were the norm, and sometimes, we descended into the basement, assembled around our various selected instruments, and attempted to twist ourselves into song.


Now I live in a large city, ride a bus in the mornings and in the evenings with my silent co-passengers. I travel to the GonerRecords Website from time to time, as it provides a valuable respite to my frantic days. My favorite bands are varied and formidable. References are available upon request.

Also: from time to time, I stick it--deep inside--'cause I'm Loose.

HOW I FOUND GONER: We met standing infront of a jukebox.
You said something like "I'll give you a quarter if you play 'Lola.'
I blushed and said 'Keep it, sweetie.' and played it twice. I also played 'Sunshine' by Roy Ayers.

strangely enough Users dug and Matalac told me about this crap on the same day about a year ago...checked it out and found a bunch of jokers (some I know some I don't)talkin about Decadence Manor and Memphis Streets. How could I not be hooked.

Did I mention the Awesome Blossoms here are KILLER!

i am lauryn and i live in memphis. i work as a deaf relay operator at mci. i hate my job. i also go to school full time at university of memphis, majoring in history. am going on to grad school to eventually be a history professor, focusing on modern european history.

moved around quite a bit. listen to a lot of different kinds of music, but garage is probably my fav. used to go see the oblivians when i first moved here my senior year of high school. moved away to go to college in indiana for a little while. lived in ohio for quite a while too. then came back here a couple years back or so. and now here i am.

i am a record junkie, so you can probably imagine how i came across goner (the store), seeing how i used to live in cooper-young and all. *shrugs* then came across the board when perusing the website looking to see what they had in stock. i keep meeting random people from the board as i go out to shows every other night of the week when i am not buried up to my eyeballs in homework.

What is wrong with you people? Don't you know that learning about people is GAY???

Well, lucky for you, I'm completely gay! (shhh don't tell my wife)

Grew up in Southern Ohio, far away from any music being played, so I played guitar with a buddy of mine out in the shed (seriously) and searched for music nobody round them parts had heard of (I got the Germs GI cassette when I was like 9 by closing my eyes and pointing at the bin because I had no idea where to learn about underground music). I only went to 2 shows as a kid and my parents took me to both of them because I begged them hard enough- Bob Dylan and Robert Jr. Lockwood (did I mention I was a weird kid?).
Went to college and found a handful of people who knew who I was talking about on some of the music I liked and got to actually see some good shows (Archers of Loaf, Cows, JSBX, etc). Moved to Columbus (where I found my wife- a woman who was as excited as me to spend our first New Year's together at a Dirtbombs/Bassholes show- yes the perfect woman) to look for a job after college and found out that if you live in a decent sized city you can see all kinds of shows!
I never thought I'd post on a message board. I figured they were just for confused teenage girls and the middle aged men preying on them. But I ran across this one and couldn't believe how much of the same music these people liked! And not just Oblivians, but old rnr and rnb and punk and blues and whatever. So, there are other people besides my wife that like the same music I do!

Anyway, I guess this has gotten long, but us gays love to gab!

Bazooka Joe's my best friend and this town spit him out too.
For money I'm the shop carpenter for an architectural modelmaking company.
For love I play music, though it's a big mistake.
I heard of goner as the record label about '95, the time I first heard the Oblivions. I'd been into Memphis shit like Tav Falco, Chilton, Gibson Brothers and '68 Comeback already.I once gave Eric O. a demo tape of mine at one of the last Oblivions shows down in Hollywood.
I didn't get on here regularly 'till 2004 but this site is the spot. I know a handful of people on here from playing with their bands and I'll never see garagepunk.com 'cause purists are retards.

I was born in a horrible ass-eating place known as Oak Harbor in Washington state. I went to Bellingham, dropped out of high school, bummed around the western US and wound up settling in Portland in the early 90's.
I found Goner because I was/am a huge Oblivians fan and when I was no longer afraid of the computer and discovered the internet this is what I did. I used to be called Kris ADD on here but that named got messed up somehow so now I go by Destroyer.
I have played guitar in several alternative rock acts around the Portland area, more mentionable are (currently) The Moneychangers, The Slip Its, and other things. I have also been in The Nearly Deads, 10-4 Backdoor, Junior's Gang and many others.
I used to go see Joe Pestilence's band The Silver Kings regularly. It was a really good time. They reunite every so often and when I can make it I go. Now he comes over to my apartment and drinks beer, smokes grass and looks at goofy stuff on the internet with me on a semi-regular basis. Sometimes there are others with us. I hope he doesn't mind my mentioning him on here. It's just that I think he's cool.
Today I work at a junk mail factory where I do kinko's kinda stuff and goof off on the 'net all day. I have almost been fired from here. This will continue until I get caught or something.
I'm currently trying to decide if I'll go drinking at the Marathon after work today or go home and take a dump or both as I write this.
I am a white boy, 6'1", well hung with a beer drinker's build. I'm also single, ladies, so watch out.

although i rarely post, i've been on this board for years. also found it via an internet search when looking for oblivians stuff.

right after the oblivians broke up, eric o was selling a bunch of oblivians stuff here and i bought a concert poster from a european show with oblivians and dm bob & the deficits. still have it. never seen another one. no, it's not for sale.

I live over off of N. Mississippi St. in Portland and rarely leave the 'hood. My folks live over on 16th and Fremont in NE, so I sometimes go over there for dinner. I don't have any friends except my roommates, and this house of people who are sorta related to us that live 3 blocks away. One of my brothers (I live with another) also lives only about a block away, and I sometimes hang out with the local weirdos- none of whom are really "Goners".

I try and stay as far away from Alberta as possible, but I heard there's a party over there on 22nd this Saturday, so who knows?

When/if I go downtown, it's usually just to see a show, or hang out at Valentine's, which we like to call the "North Portland Annex". My 'hood kinda sucks, the Crow Bar DEFINITELY sucks, but I drink there anyway 'cause it's only three blocks away and they let me run a tab when I'm broke.

Howdy, deadcityrebel! My name is Marc, and I'm actually more of a beige than white. I've lived all over, but now reside in Southern California.

I do stuff like BBQ'ing (comps & judging), shooting, hiking, tubing, climbing rocks, hunting, blowing shit up, playing geetar, bass & crappie fishing, hot rodding, and 4x4'ing. For work, I invest in real estate, and also help with my families distribution business whenever they need it.

A friend was always going on about the Goner board, like I knew what she was talking about. She lived almost 1000 miles away and knew more stuff going on in Memphis than me, even though I was stuck there for over a year at the time. The first Goner I ever met in person was Chris Alienator. I figured there had to be other interesting folks on here.

I have very few ties to this board. I rarely go to shows, never buy vinyl, or reject Middle America or my suburban background. I was also never bullied or alienated in high school, so that may explain some of it. The rampant disaffection among punk rockers and hipsters never resonated with me.

This board is one of my few connections to underground music and youth culture. The good music I get turned on to, what to do w/Memphis threads, the proseltizing "I'm an unselfish, goody-2-shoes liberal, too" declarations, and chance to read posts from my favorite musicians keep me coming back even after I think I've kicked the habit.

It's weird- none of my friends are really into "Goner stuff"- they're all a buncha indie-rocker types, 'cept one of my roommates who seems to only listen to Kanye West and the Stooges over and over.

I'm originally from the dirty south (ATL) but have lived in Portland, OR for the last 8 years. I've also done brief stints in Chicago & Ft Lauderdale.

I have the most boring job in the entire world (accounting) at the corporate offices of one of the electric companies out here- but it pays rent, buys booze & herbage & puts food in the kitty's bowl so WTF. I've been here long enough that no one says anything if I come in reeking of stale beer. Warren Buffet is in the process of buying my company- so who knows how much longer my dull but reliable employment will be available.

I ended up on this board cause I met King Louis, Joe Pestilence, destroyer & others about 5 years ago or so thru some mutual friends & we've been bumming around off & on ever since. I've always been an avid supporter of my local rock scene- the trashier the better. I luvs me some rock n roll & I don't give a good goddamn what era, genre or fuckin scene it comes from. I used to live in an amazing house here we called "the Manor"- threw some of the best rock n roll parties this town has ever seen. Prolly will again one day. Some of ya'll prolly know me & don't even realize it.

What do I "do"? Hmmm... I drink, smoke, bowl, paint, read, drink, travel as much as possible, collect toys & comics & music, sadly stare at my neglected bass guitar that I rarely pick up, drink, smoke, & hit any & every rock show worth a spit.

I'm on this board mostly to escape the boredom of work (Goner is small enough to slip under our fierce firewalls of doom). I've gotten enough hot tips on cool stuff to check out that I've become semi-addicted.

I just moved into the Laurelhurst hood (28th & Burnside) this weekend- so if anyone out there needs a drinkin buddy for the Tiger or Holman's, etc- lemme know!

Mississippi has BLOWN UP in the last few years, and though I see lots of hot chicks/cool guys in the 'hood, Crow Bar always seems full of 30-something yups from across the river that moved over here 'cause they thought it would be "gritty" and "urban" and (my personal favorite) "funky".

Their ain't never any rock'n'rollers in there, you know? I guess I could go to the Paragon, but those bike-punks STINK!

Where? Batelle?


I live about 2 hours west and a little north of you in a town you've probably never heard of, Celina, but we're right on Grand Lake St. Marys which you probably have heard of. I lived in Columbus and went to college there for 2 years and was obsessed with Gaunt and the NBTs so it's nice to hear someone else mention them. I lived in the ghetto on High St. for a year and then "moved up" to University Village.

Columbus Ohio, baby! I think Jeff Evans has forgotten too...

nah - he was telling me all about Ohio the last couple times we dined together. we traded Ohio stories (I spent 3 months there on a writing project) and he told me how much it had changed and all that usual stuff
Posted: Feb 9, 2006 8:12 am
 
how much it had changed
hit south Ohio, Cincin is just as shitty as ever
then dip into Kentucky and over to west virgini
'bout all that's changed is those
mining companies are destroying
all the "halow livin'"
Posted: Feb 9, 2006 8:37 am
 
That's just an idiotic statement, plain and simple. Cincy is one of the nicer cities in the midwest. Everytime we visit there I can't believe how much they've improved the city and that goes for Newport, KY, as well.

That's the first one I got too. I got it because it had Jon Spencer in it! That's actually the album that led to me getting into all of the bands that brought me to Goner. And I had no idea at the time they were from Columbus!

I'll admit that I post more on the Garagepunk.com site but that's only because they seem to be a bit more diverse musically. Ya'll are funnier though, and you have that food forum.

At least I was told it was them. I know Eric was in it...recognizing him from Shangri La. I was pretty messed up.

Celina, but we're right on Grand Lake St. Marys

I've heard of Celina mostly because I work for UPS and we have a center up there, so when I worked with the drivers, one of them would be going up there every night. We also have sales force up there, obviously.

I hate Cincinatti- it is just the most bigoted city in Ohio in my opinion. I've seen some good shows there (do u remember the Hairy Patt Band?back to Columbuus-how bout Eric's Mother?) and had some good times there but as a city I just think it stinks. I think Columbus is under-rated. It kind of sucks but it has its own charm... It mostly sucks because it's such a college town, but that is also what keeps it young.

I also play in two shitty bands, one called Boyfriend Material and the other called Ugly Stick. They're both two-guitars + drums deals and they're pretty similar except Ugly Stick is quite a bit trashier. I found the Goner board a few years ago when I had a really boring desk job one summer.

It's actually damn funny that you mention this - we JUST stated this exact same thing this past weekend. I wasn't referring to the people in my above post, I'm just commenting on Cincy itself. It's beautiful architecturally and how it sits on the river and all that. I can't believe how they've revitalized downton since I was a kid. But, yeah, the people are total pricks. I love going into Shake It Records for their selections on vinyl BUT those guys in there are complete and total ASSHOLES. That one guy, blonde with glasses, been there forever - manager or something - I can not stand that guy. He is the typical smug record store know-it-all (i.e., think High Fidelity) and no matter what you say to him he talks down to you or ignores you all together. Oh well, whatever, the town is awesome. I've always thought Cleveland was pretty stuck on themselves as well and could never figure out why. My wife always jokes that I can make friends with anyone if I'm standing or sitting beside them for 30 seconds but it usually takes me a minute or two when in Cincy or Cleveland, haha.

I agree Columbus is a great town. I like the large number of students around, gives it a great atmosphere as far as I'm concerned. Not too uppity, in-the-know for the most part but somewhat guardedly open-minded when compared to other college towns. I think it's basically a bunch of small town/farm kids trying to act like they're not in awe of the "big city". Just my impression while I lived there. I love Columbus.

I live in NJ, in a neighborhood near Newark that only Sopranos fans have heard of. We had a film crew leave a flyer asking us to call if we wanted them to use our house for an episode and I was all for it, but for some reason B didn't want to. Oh, well. The $$ would have been sweet. I moved to NJ from my vermin infested 6-floor walk-up in East Harlem 'cause I was jealous of how much space B got for the same amount of rent and of the fact that he had no mice, rats, cockroaches or carpet beatles in his house. I moved here to Belleville a couple of years later 'cause I moved in with B. He's also on this board sometimes, but tends to hang out more over at Garagepunkforums. He's really a bomp list guy.

I tend not to have a whole lot of time to spend on forums because I am a freelancer and I work from home as a consultant to artists and non-profits. I write grants, write and design educational and marketing materials, help with strategic planning and plan special events. THat's how I ended up on this board. I put together a Katrina benefit and called Eric at the store to ask if I raised $, could he get it to folks who needed it. Theresa ended up coming over and staying at my house and we raised a nice chunk of change and had a pretty great party. During the week we were planning the event, I started reading the posts here and thought it was fun, so I stop in whenever I need a laugh or to waste time...

I also play in a few bands and have been a fan for a while... yadda yadda yadda...

A friend introduced me to the music of Harlan T. Bobo and this board. They probably regret it, because I am a fucking nut having an early midlife crisis. Most of you seem kind of crazy so I feel comfortable coming here when I can't sleep or I should be working or doing homework. I'm not looking back to where I'm from and I have no idea where I'm going. I have a good job that I'll probably lose before too long do to my recent laziness and also the boss's best friend wants my job. I've heard several different people use the phrase "Catch 22" incorrectly in the last two days. It's weird, because I'm usually easy going, but it seems that stuff like that pisses me off and makes me want to scream lately. I also feel like burning all of my stuff, but I'm waiting to see if I change my mind. I drink a lot on the weekends and sometimes during the week. This week is the first time in my life that I have been in control of the baggie and I am not over-indulging so that is something to be proud of (I guess). I want to have sex with a diety but I don't believe in dieties, so I just want to have sex almost all the time. It has been 10 long days since I last had sex. I send people crazy emails and then apologize for them.

I live in a town across the River Mersey from Liverpool that's predominantly made up of the elderly and the severely retarded. It's also home to one of the largest number of cases of satanic abuse in children within the UK. Spending the majority of last Summer in America has left me with an overwhelming sense of unsatisfaction. It was during this time that I met a lot of fellow Goners and I enjoyed the company of every one of them. Since returning home I spend much of my time thinking of ways I can return. These have included offers of marriage to both Chicago Kevin and Scott Rogers. Kevin seemed a lil more interested than Scott. I'm not sure if that's a good thing. Hadda Bad Day said she'd do it for the right price. I think she was joking.

Since being made unemployed I spend my days hiding from window cleaners and waiting for the postman to deliver records I can barely afford.

I first came to the Goner Board looking for the Smokin' 7" by the Royal Pendletons and instantly felt at home within it's world of depravity and stupidness.

I ran headfirst into a wall at the age of 15 and haven't been the same since. I spent the Summer of '99 believing that the organiser of the Glastonbury Festival was at the head of a plot to have me killed. I haven't touched drugs since.

I share my birthday with Adolf Hitler and like to celebrate this by slaughtering as many ethnic minorities as possible.

I have yet to understand the American fascination with the word "gay".

Holy hell!! That's a "Hawk" pet name I've never thought of. That's awesome. Our next pet is gonna be Hudson.

April, I'll be out snappin' pics of you and the mates. I saw you're gonna be all over in my area. Any idea where in Columbus yet? Little Brothers is a pretty cool venue and I've seen some of my favorite Columbus shows in recent years there.

Yeah, Columbus is quite a bit closer while Lafayette is a haul. I haven't been to Cafe Bourbon Street for quite awhile but that place is very cool as well. I think I saw Detroit on your schedule, too - any idea where in Detroit? I love Detroit concerts, I grew-up on Detroit concerts.

EDIT - I just looked again at your schedule - you're at the Beachland in Cleveland! I love that place! The PBRs are COLD as ice but the streets to that place are so f-d up. I get lost everytime.

Shit - Human Eye is on the bill in Detroit? Wow. Everyone booed those guys when they opened for Guitar Wolf last year but I thought they were one of the wildest things I'd seen in awhile. I'm assuiming you've witnessed that show? Again, wow.
