Like they made a great record, or whatever mystique surrounds them, even if they were bad...it can go back as far as time or be recent...please include your hometown of course...I'll start- Columbus Ohio: The Gibson Brothers and the Four Mints. We all know the Gibson Brothers but I was just listening to the "Keepers" EP on Okra. Great. Four Mints were sweet soul on legendary Columbus soul label Capsoul. (Check out Numero Uno's release of Capsoul on their eccentric soul series.) There you go...

"Dow Jones and the Industrials"

Indeterminism, nothing you can about it...
OH O O!

Man that 7" smokes! Also hot from Bloomington is The Coke Dares. They were fantastic when we saw them open for The Gizmos (2nd lineup) @ The Beat Kitchen in Chicago, Jan. '05.

& Bravo to The Latest Flames. Does anyone know how to get a hold of Darran/Behemoth Records or his bro, Dirk Vermin? I've sent stuff to Behemoth's Yahoo mail & sent stuff to the Behemoth PO Box, but I've not got any answer.

But back to the question at hand...

Cheater Slicks, New Bomb Turks, Scrawl, Guant, The Pillowbiters, Sons of Solomon, The Feelers, The Gibson Brothers, Bob City, probably many others that currently escape my beer soaked memory.

Well, fuck all y'all. I aint gonna apologize for brokeass TorONtoe. Slim pickin's it is...whatever...off the top of my skull, shit that holds it's own with the Detroit/Memphis/NOLA axis - Jackie Shane, Jackie Mitoo, Screamin' Sam.

I will only go from 80's white bands and definitely keep "bad bands/great mystique" as a criterion for at least one:

Grifters, Oblivians, Vegas Thunder, Alex Chilton 80's act, Panther Burns, 4 Neat Guys

Hometown: Mystery Girls, Holy Shit! (basically), Infanticide (local weird-o long-hair that went to high-school w/ Tabman. Played...no, SHREDDED metal-style along with a boombox of drumbeats...a real folk hero among Green Bay'ers my age.), Thee Jaguar (King of the Trashe Blooz...been doing his own thing for years and years now. Playing the harp, stamping on sheet metal for percussion...). Maybe he's from Appleton, though...northeast WI kinda all runs together.

Where I live now: SHIVVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They all still live in town and play music together, apparently. A reunion has GOTTA happen, somehow...

Toronto? As in OH Can o' Duh? How 'bout Simply Saucer or Bent Wind or even In The Red riot mongers, The Deadly Snakes?

Bent Wind? yes, thank-you, I'm feelin' prouder. Simply Saucer were from Hamilton or would be at the top of whatever list. Deadly Snakes? nah, never moved me much, but that got me to thinking...I think I first saw them as an opener for George Reinecke's "Busted Flush" - add them to the list. George may have been from New Orleans, but then neither Jackie Shane nor Jackie Mittoo were natives anyway and I already nominated them.

I guess I should add Sun Ra, since he's from the South Side of Chicago, and got his start playing in the house bands at the strip clubs over in Hammond Indiana and Calumet.

That is, if you don't buy his "I'm from Saturn" schtick.

keyboards, but yeah, same guy. Big Jamaican community in Toronto (same as Brooklyn?) A couple of years ago, I was in one of the older shops looking for records and got to talking with the proprietor about Mittoo's years in Toronto, and his buddy looks up and goes "yeah mon, they all come up here to die...even Bob Marley...played Toronto...died"

Jackie Shane
The 45 is awesome, but I've been looking for a copy of that LP most of my life.
Posted: Jun 30, 2006 5:59 pm
 
Hometown... well, not much going on. It would be easy to say Monomen/Estrus, that scene, but I always hated it (Monomen anyway) and was interested in stuff my friends were doing instead. A lot I can't remember off the top of my head. I was talking to another "native" a while ago about some of the old street bands & punk rock that got us through high school. Maybe more like folks I'm most fond of. The guys from Saucer, Noggin, drummer for Dune Buggy, Grien Cow, Outside, bunch of other shit.

Where I live now: It's a hotbed over here. Paul Revere & Raiders, Dead Moon, Poison Idea, Mini Max (old Portland white boy r&b late 60's-early 70's), Kingsmen, History of NW Rock comp. bands from around here. The Hunches, Observers, Sk & Punk Ass Bitches & Muddy River Nightmare Band/the collective stuff those guys did previously leading up to where they are now, The Silverkings, High & Mighty, Goddamn Gents, Exploding Hearts, Phantom Lights, Triggers, Weaklings, Fliptops, Riffs, Minds a ton more shit I can't remember right now. Especially proud of how the place is looking as of right now, it's been really good so far this year. Rectangles, Reptilian Civilian, Eegos, Nice Boys, Pure Country Gold, The Ones, Howie & Hot Knives, OSda Pop Kids, there's other shit going on that's good as well (my shit), etc.

I'm horribly ashamed of: Dandy Wharhols (somebody mow these fucks down with an uzi before anybody else gets AIDS), Everclear, the shit stain these groups left all over our fair city, I'm not a fan of anything related to college emocore pop at all and there's a fucking metric ton of it here.

Better than Ezra, Papa Grows Funk, Bonerama

I know that this was posted in sarcasm....but it raises an interesting point

Two of these bands compromise some of the nicest people I've ever met....the played where I worked (dba NOLA), were nice and polite to me and the other employees and even regularly tipped on the free drinks they got while playing, even though it wasn't expected....

On the other hand, there are many "cooler" bands I met through work at say, SXSW, that are such complete douchebags that.....well you get my drift.....

so in that sense, all the bands that I've worked with over the last 20 years, regardless of street cred, press or hipsterdom that have been decent human beings I am proud of you.

My hometown, Rhinelander only ever had one band that I know of, and they were also called Rhinelander. I used to have a split 7" with them and Lack of Social Decency, who were also from the northwoods of Wisconsin. It was released in the late 80's and the best thing about the record, from what I remember was their use of the Rhinelander beer logo on the record cover.

I'd have to agree with Brad on the bands I'm most proud of all being my own. Hatefuck, Desperate Living and most importantly Pink Reason.

What's funny is that during our (Desperate Living) short lifespan I CONSTANTLY heard from people "please, you guys, I know you all hate each other, but just don't break up." Seriously.

Oh well. We sure showed them!


You wanna know what's funny too? There is no record of our band. Brock taped over one of our tapes, and during our last show, our best show ever, the one that got me laid because we were so fuckin' great, well, we tried recording it but someone in the audience pushed stop on the cassette deck about ten seconds into our first song.

If I ever find out who did that, they're totally fucked.

Actually,make sure to keep forgetting Jimmy Buffet. Besides that,there's actaully a couple of bands from the Miss. Coast actually worth mentioning here. I don't mean Third Eye Blind or Guffria (sp?) either,though those are ones people have heard of (Giuffria had a minor hair-metal power ballad hit in the late 80s i believe) .

The Fugitives- Pascagoula 60s Garage teens whose song "No Tease" not only made it to a Crypt comp but also gave the comp it's name (part of the Teenage Shutdown series). There's a detailed story about 'em in the liner notes,and their band photo is on the cover!

Flower Power- this reeeally originally named 60s Gulfport band wound up on the Beyond The Calico Wall comp back in the early 90s,and got compared to "LA Blues" (!) in reviews of that comp. They're also listed in that Fuzz and Flowers,etc online 60s band thing (is there still a link to that on this website,BTW?).

As for my current place of residence: Big Daddy Meat Straw and Goons Of Destruction.

Adios Gringo....probably the only Memphis rock band playing now that the core members(Bert, Todd and Paul) have been playing together consistently for twenty years. Cryonics turned into Private War in 86/87 and they have been playing non-stop(Taintskins after Private War) since then. Beside the dedicaton factor, they are the most original and kick ass of all Metal bands playing today IMO. Pity they dont get the exposure they deserve.

Pity they dont get the exposure they deserve.

I second this, but I question whether Adios Gringo ever really wanted it, anyway. I don't think they ever gave a fuck, even back in '87 (which is awesome). But, easily one of my hometown fav's (in my top 3). Also Like Filthy Diablo (especially w/Cooley) a lot. You'd think with the culmination of the two, I'd be a big fan of Joint Chiefs (and I think they're o.k.), but that band can't touch AG of FD.

My hometown (Malden, MA) is also where most of the members of Slapshot were from (don't know about later lineups, but the original lineup were mostly from Malden). Members were in a really great dumb punk band called Terminally Ill.

Right now in Austin there is alot going on, but the ones I'd list in the top are Sons of Hercules, even though Frank and Dale live in San Antonio, and the Ugly Beats. Others are Eastside Suicides, the Ends, Deadites, Jungle Rockers, and there are many more going on now that are fun like the Apeshits, Manikin, Hotrails, and you could say the Riverboat Gamblers are from Austin now I think. Mike lives here, even though some might say they are from Denton. There was alot of stuff that I missed in the 90s like the Inhalants, Cryin Out Louds, Motards, Chumps, Reclusives, ext and before that Big Boys, Dicks, and the Skunks.. and Austin is the home of Rocky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators...

why do people think "Toys that Kill" are so good?


i certainly dont think they're earthshattering, but theyre ok at best.

San Pedro?
If so, why do people pronounce it "peedro"


i'm not from san pedro, but i am from LA
not very many people here pronounce it "pay dro" even though that's the proper spanish pronounciation
its just the way it is

same w/ paso robles
they say "robulls" instead of "ro bless"

its, you know, like, cali-speak dude.

The only band from my birthplace area are the Ripley Cotton Choppers. They might have been the first band on Sun, but I know they were an early one.
Posted: Jul 6, 2006 1:52 am
 
Man that Ripley Cotton Choppers is rare as all get-out! Never see that thing and it was reportedly in jukeboxes all over Ripley back in the day. Some dealer put an ad in the local paper a few years back offering $1000 to anyone who could produce a copy. And he was gonna resell it for double or better!

Sleepy John Estes was born in Ripley, TN., He moved to Brownsville when he was young...I'm pretty sure that there is some sort of Gus Cannon/ Ripley connection too.

The AMAZING Noah Lewis, of Cannon's Jug Stompers was born outside of Ripley in Henning TN. Cannon's Jug Stompers recorded Ripley Blues in 1928.

Man, I should have mentioned them. I loved those guys. I actually went to see them open for The Fleshtones in 1992. Shadowy Men were awesome, but The 'Shtones were absolutely breath taking. It was a night I will never forget, expect when listing bands from another town obviously.

I got into Supression when they released their split demo with Rectal Pus, and I loved all the 7"s they used to put out, but I started getting disinterested when their main instrument became a gas tank. I liked when they were fuckin' up the shit hard, but when they became a straight up noise band, meh.

"Honor Role/Butterglove/Breadwinner/Labradford Were there any great RnR bands from Richmond, VA? "

Shit, some people really like GWAR, I don't listen to metal, but don't mind Lamb of God, & I personally think RPG is one of the greatest "shake-your-ass hard rock" bands on the planet.
Posted: Jul 7, 2006 12:59 pm

That was the worst thing that happened to Man is the Bastard.

Now Suppression is just a goofy skronk band with just the lead singer playing bass and the drummer and they've never even heard of the Stretcheads.

Touch & Go Records started in Maumee, OH, which is where Corey & the Necros were from. It's a very nice 'burb just south of Toledo. When Touch & Go were cranking out the early 7"s, I was blowing by it on the way up to the Toledo Sports Arena to see Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, & Iron Maiden.

perhaps your right. i had always heard that their first address was a P.O. Box in east lansing but perhaps that was just the zine that Tesco put out.

Hard to say for sure without talking to Corey or Tesco (who is back living in the Lansing area) but Process of Elimination was recorded in East Lansing...

Steph already mentioned The Goners, but I'm going to say Gorky's other band: Axtident. Managra wasn't my style, but I guess I would still be "proud" of them.
