Goner Message Board / ???? / Legionaire's Disease Band
Posted: Jun 27, 2013 2:20 pm
"Rather See You Dead" is one of my favorite punk songs ever. The description above (here on the Goner site) says "Texas Punk BRIALLIANCE with Bobby Soxx just killing it. MEAN! This is not pop punk! From 1979!" Soxx didn't have anything to do with this group though, right? He was from Dallas, they were from Houston. Just something I've been wondering about but keep forgetting to post.

I have a copy of the 10" that came out on Lunar Lab. The liner notes about the band seem to be a work of fiction compared to the articles Mssr. Beef provided.

The vocals remind me of Johnny Rotten with a southern accent in lieu of a cockney one. "Downtown" is my fave.

J Walter Wolfe on guitar, one of the first people I met in TX in 86. Verbal Abuse started as a Houston band and moved to the bay area. Nikki was never in Legionnaires Disease, he was just being quoted in the article.

Ahh I see he played a couple of shows with them in 88, I stand corrected internets.

in that interview Nicki (Nikki is the dude in Motley Crue) states quite plainly that Legionaires Dusease was the first band he was ever in

no idea if he was lying or what but that is what he is quoted as saying

holy shit it really looks like he's missing a leg.

Legionaire's Disease drummer Craig was also in The Fuck-Ups. He has since passed on.

Their singer-screamer Jerry Anomie now lives in Northern Cali. He bit my gf on the ankle once.

Had an original copy of the classic Rather See You Dead record. Bought it minus sleeve. Sold it for ten bux.

Saw a 2013 reissue copy a few weeks ago.

Oh shit, yeah, my fugup. Sorry bout that, but still one chunk of perfect Texas punk. Not involving mr Soxxxxx. Also gotta restock.
