2. Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet
3. Black Flag - My War

i was 12 in 1990. heh. i probably liked some crap. i really don't remember what the hell i was listening to back then.
Posted: Dec 6, 2008 3:21 pm
Celtic Frost-Morbid Tales
Mentors- (actually by '90 one of my uptight older sisters had thrown out my Mentors tapes)
Slayer-Reign in Blood, Haunting the Chapel
Too Short-Life Is...
Motorhead-Rock 'n' Roll
Nuclear Assault-The Plague

Shit, I'm drawing blanks. I maybe only had a dozen or so tapes since I never had much in the way of money as a yute.

Blood Guts & Pussy was thee record of 1990
i did spend alot of time playing sega and listening to Bleach & the Touch Me I'm Sick 7" but the lasting connection i made with the Pacific NW in 1990 was Poison Idea and the Wipers - my fondest memories of 1990 involve jugs of Carlo Rossi and the Drinking's Great comp with Poison Idea and E13

i was way into Steel Pole Bath Tub and Victim's Family at this point too
yeah and Fugazi and Bad Religion too -- i was saved in 1991 when i developed a crush on Elka like every other punk rock boy in SF and going to see her band 8 Ball Scratch introduced me to the Mummies & Supercharger and whatever Mike Lucas was doing (Pussy Hounds?) -- hell, maybe that was 1990 - who knows, i was drinking heavily and having fun liiving in SF with $180 rent - party

First half of 1990 I was a senior in high school, second half I was in the Navy living in Philadelphia. Fortunately I was buying most new stuff on commercial cassette at the time if it was available in that format so a quick trip to ye olde tape drawers will tell the tale:

BAD RELIGION--Against The Grain
COFFIN BREAK--Rupture/Psychosis
THE CYNICS--Rock n Roll
DWARVES--Blood Guts and Pussy
GREEN DAY--39/Smooth
GOVERNMENT ISSUE--No Way Out '82 live
HELMET--Strap It On
MONO MEN--Wrecker
MR. T EXPERIENCE--Making Things With Light
NEUROSIS--The Word As Law
NO USE FOR A NAME--Incognito
POISON IDEA--Feel The Darkness
THE RADICTS--Rebel Sound
SOCIAL DISTORTION--Social Distortion

Good times.

I'm glad I wasn't that punk when I was 15. There was always room for Wham and Grand Master Flash and Soft Cell. Angry Samoans probably got the most turntable and boombox time back then, either that or Floyd's Wish you were here.

I was 9 and listening to Casey Casem's Top 40 every sunday.

probably really digging Bel Biv Devoe or something.

I moved from Leicester to London in 1990, to join a band that was kinda what my pal Will once called "beat Nazis", y'know, the 'nothing good was made after 1966' kinda thing, so my listening back then woulda been:

Masters Apprentices, Raven comp
Yardbirds, Roger The Engineer
Pretty Things, Get The Picture
Gene Clark, With The Gosdin Brothers
Prime Movers, Sins Of The Fourfathers
Buffalo Springfield, Again
The Misunderstood, Before The Dream Faded
Downliners Sect, Rock Sects In
Ramones, Rocket To Russia

Plus shitloads of UK, Australian and Dutch biet stuff...

Strangely, although my tastes have got waaaay wider since then, I still really dig mid-60s R&B / beat / garage a whole load, and have filled out jukebox with stuff like the first Masters Apprentices 45, Q65, Outsiders, Pretty Things, Smoke, Creation etc...

Not so sure about my haircut at the time, tho'! See here:

1. NWA - Straight outta Compton

In 1990, I spent three months at sea on a fishing boat on the Bering Sea. There were three cassette tapes on board: the first Culture Club, North Carolina banjo music and Straight Outta Compton.

Earlier that year I was headed to Compton and traveling through nearby Gardenia. Saw a barbecue shack with a sign that read "MEMPHIS BARBECUE," so I stopped. It was great, great barbecue. I told the owner, "This is fabulous, and reminds me of Interstate Barbecue in Memphis." He said, "That's my brother," and pointed towards framed pictures of Interstate Barbecue.

helmet, melvins, steel pole, las vegas grind and other 'wacky' comps("b-b-b-bar be que, queeeeen bee bar b que"), headcoats, antiseen, slayer, drunk injuns, sockeye, dwarves, reverb motherfuckers.....
Posted: Dec 8, 2008 11:23 am
i was 13-14 and pretty much listening to old ass music (Stones, Beatles, Zeppelin, Kinks, Dylan, etc) exclusively by this point, but i do remember digging NWA and Rakim and Public Enemy, Jane's Addiction and probably early R.E.M. before they went full-tilt gay with Shiny Happy People. It would be another year before I would get into punk and its progeny.

haha i still like the second side of ritual

In 1990 I was too concerned with being a baby to have any taste in music. I do still rock cassettes though, not because it's cool or hip but because sometimes it's more convenient.

Blood Guts & Pussy was thee record of 1990

Possibly the high water mark for the entire decade. I am still amazed by how something could simultaneously be so powerful, crude, and yet downright catchy.

In 1990, I was also diggin':

King Snake Roost - From Barbarism to Christian Manhood

Jesus Lizard - Head/PURE

Mudhoney - st/ Touch Me I'm Sick

God Bullies - Join Satans Army/ Plastic Eye Miracle

Sonic Youth - Various Sonic Death Era

Pussy Galore - 1yr Live self released boot tape/Right Now/Groovy Hate F

Helmet - STRAP IT ON

Helios Creed/Chrome - Boxing the Clown/Last Laugh/Red Exposure/Anorexic Sacrifice

Crystalized Movements - Random Comp

Gibson Bros. - Dedicated Fool

Negativland - Helter Stupid

Cows - Daddy has a Tail

Along with the Top of the Pops from Am Rep, Sub Pop, T&G and 80's hangover of Black Flag, Misfits, and Cramps, etc.

Ditto, unfortunately. Don't forget New Kids on the Block, Milli Vanilli and C&C Music Factory. Yikes. What a horrible time for my young impressionable ears.

Posted: Dec 9, 2008 11:37 am
Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Rush, Alice Donut, Dead Milkmen, GnR Lies, and WASP were about all I had.
I had Eazy Duz It, but my mom took it because she was afraid I was going to get my gat and start sprayin fools if I kept listening.
Posted: Dec 9, 2008 10:55 pm
that marked the year I was fresh outta college radio and flipped into the weirdo record store.....
skip spence, jellyfish, chills, mekons, bevis frond... yeah, that about sums it up.
Posted: Dec 10, 2008 2:04 am
I listened to WRKR "the rocker" wich is now bullshit, and WIDR (college radio) as well. Other than that who fucking cares.
Posted: Dec 10, 2008 2:08 am
oh yea, Screaming Blue Messiahs...I wanna be a Flintstone..I thought that was pretty punk rock same thing with Scatterbrain...then people said i "dude, that's not punk..!" then i said "fuck it" and listened to Rush, Yes, and Jethro Tull. I was at peace. Thats how punk I am.
Posted: Dec 10, 2008 10:07 am
funny this topic surfaced. i was cleaning out my closet - made my way through all the ol skeletons, cobwebs and transvestites and found some notebooks from when i was about 15 yrs. old. most of them were filled w/angsty teenage crap. but there were page after page of mix tapes i was making for myself and friends. i can't say i was COOL. lol but i can be honest... this is what i found: the cure, morrisey, smiths, velvet underground, ramones, samhain & misfits, black flag, sick of it all, cramps
social distortion. but i think i was way into "YO MTV RAPS" more than anything else.
Posted: Dec 10, 2008 10:24 pm
Dead Milkmen - Bucky Fellini
Butthole Surfers - Psychic Powerless Another Man's Sac
NIN - Pretty Hate Machine
Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation Of Millions
De La Soul - 3 Feet High And Rising. my friend Damion had this on tape and I had Misfits - Walk Among Us so we traded, I wanted to hear what the black man was on about and vice versus. Later that day, Bulldozer and Bonecrusher broke into Damion's locker and stole my Misfits tape (these dudes lip-synched "Ride The Lightning" with acoustic guitars and 1 strobe light for talent competition during 7th hour) I kept the De La Soul tape, sorry Damion.

Dutch had this Fame soundtrack tape that he bought at Big Lots. "I love you mannequin!" And the Mystic Merlin tape he had, top shelf.

Oh man, I'm wondering if I was still in my brief, but nonetheless embarrassing industrial phase then, or if that would have been the previous year or so, when I would've been 14...

If I was still into it at 15:
My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult
Meat Beat Manifesto
I think I supplemented it with other stuff too:
Siouxie and the Banshees
Sinead O'Connor
the Cure
If that Jane's Addiction record came out then, then yeah, I was way into that. Was that Ritual de lo Habitual? Eek.

I will say this though, I know I had started to move into other stuff, because I remember my mother being mortified by the band name Dead Kennedys.

Now that I think about it more, I am pretty sure I was moving out of the industrial phase into a brief punk-only phase by the time I was 15. Good thing I still had all my skate punk tapes from when I was 13!

After 15, I was less compartmentalized in my choice of music. Thank goodness for the free thinking that comes with age!

I was in the best band in the world in 1990. And having more fun than all of you losers combined.

My mom had the same reaction! She also did not think the Dead Milkmen's Beach Party Vietnam was particularly funny.

I was ten. I was tired of the cock rock that dominated my tastes in music since '85. It turned all power ballady. I was way into the new school r&b and just on the cusp of returning to rock and rap.

Notable (aka anything I jam/couples only skated to):

Bel Biv Devoe
Biz Markie
Keith Sweat
Paula Abdul
Digital Underground
M.C. Hammer
Vanilla Ice
Johnny Gill
Mc 900 Ft Jesus

Transition music:

Faith No More
Too Short
Jane's Addiction
Dinosaur Jr.
They Might Be Giants
Midnight Oil
Depeche Mode

When you were five?

Indeed. You should see my tape collection from back then. Or, better yet, pictures of me from then. I had a mullet, jeans w/ holes in the knees, and a Slayer t-shirt (and other such bands of that ilk) up until the summer before 4th grade. I'd like to thank the awesome heshers, who where my friends older brothers and such, for being in awful metal bands at the time for shaping my early musical tastes.

High five!

I had just gotten married and was living with my wife and three dogs and five cats in Austin. Had just moved there in 1989. Went to SXSW in 1990 for the first time. Saw great shows by the Flat Duo Jets (with the bass player) and the Original Sins (at the old Cannibal Club on 6th St.) Wristbands were FIFTEEN BUCKS that year.

Also went to Uruguay for a month. It was a pretty great year, actually.
