Shit talking? Me? I'm down! Let's go!! hahaha Somebody on Facebook posted a link to a story about 2 Local bands
that got signed by some label out of Oregon called Squid Hat Records
. The 2 bands are the Gashers
and The Dirty Panties
. You can click here
to check that story out. I can understand the Dirty Panties
getting signed, because they've been around for a while now and have definitely paid some dues, but the Gashers
signing is a bit odd, because they haven't played that many gigs or released anything yet, but I was told by a member of the band that they were signed on the strength of the Peccadilloes
, who I guess are officially finished now, and that's where the Gashers
all originally came from. The label has an interesting perspective as far as associating themselves with the Double Clown and Punk Jock Bowling, but other than that minor annoyance I think what they're up to is pretty damn cool. I'm looking forward to hearing the Product that comes from those 2 bands and that label. It should be pretty good, considering how much Talent both those bands have.

and Support a couple of guys who believe in our music scene. Somebody has to, right? ;-)Oh, if you need tickets to that Casualties / Lower Class Brats gheyness that's happening @ the Bunkhouse Saloon this Saturday, you can get them directly (and cheaply) from the Civilians, who are opening along with Vihan Rytmi, by clicking here.
I will be nowhere near that lame ass gig, and I have no comment on the bands opening and why they're playing the gig. I guess when you have a soft spot for a band you had a hard on for when you were a kid looks a bit silly 20 years down the road when you're not such a Poseur anymore... heh heh
Hey! Did you hear that Cody from The People's Whiskey
is now playing bass for Surrounded By Thieves
? Hell Yeah! That's pretty cool. The hardest working man in Hendertucky will make a great addition to that band, but I heard that the previous bass players leaving wasn't too amicable. Oh well. It's not really a Punk Rock band unless their is Drama involved somehow, right? LOL The new line up is making it's grand debut tomorrow night @ Yayo Taco with a couple of bands from California, The Bogarts
, and Local darlings The Dirty Panties
, who released a track from their upcoming release on Squid Hat Records
called I Am A Robot
on their Reverb Nation band page, and you can click here
to give it a listen. The song is called Figment Of A Girl
and it's really fucking good. Congrats ladies! :-) If you're not a Friend of the band already on Facebook, you can click here
to make amends for that. Shame on you! I'm sure they'll be playing some songs off of their upcoming release, so come on out and Support Local Music and help out some bands who are on Tour and in need of money for gas and Del Taco burritos, and not the type of gas that you get from eating Del Taco burritos! The Facebook event page for the gig is right here
. It should be a good time.
If you got nothing better to do today you could head out to East Side Joe's (yeah, remember that place) and see, again, a couple of touring bands that could definitely use your help with anything and everything you can give them money wise. Summer is the time for touring and these two bands, In Defence
, are playing with that one band who foolishly stated that they were breaking up a few months ago, Vihan Rytmi
, so bust out your butt flaps and put on those clothes with all the band logo patches sewn onto them with dental floss (mint of course), because it's a good day to get Punk as Fuck at East Side Joe's with a couple of bands who came all the way from the upper midwest area of the States to play for you. Seems the least you can do is go and check them out. Not that I'm going to be there, of course, because I got American Buckshot
practice to do, but still, if you're in the area, or if you're just a diehard, stop by and check out the gig. Who knows, you might even have fun. :-) The Facebook page for the band In Defence
, straight outta Minneapolis, current home of Profane Existence, can be found by clicking here
. The Facebook page for Wartorn
, who hail from Wisconsin, can be fond here
. And just for shits and giggles, here's
the link for the Facebook page for Profane Existence. They also have a Twitter acct. if you can believe that. They don't print the fanzine anymore, but they have Facebook and Twitter accounts, to keep all those Crusty Street Punx informed as to what's going on. Oh how the mighty have fallen. ;-)OK, I think I've rambled enough for today. I'm getting sleepy... very sleepy, and this 7 Seconds I'm blasting at a ridiculously loud volume just ain't cutting it anymore. Everything is updated. I re-added the LV Local Music Scene .Com Compilation Vol. 2 to the Tunes page (click here to re-associate yourself with it), and I made it available for download too. I did the same with the Public Humiliation posting I did before as well. I also re-added a couple of old Show Reviews too, one from the Die Laughing / Vihan Rytmi / Nests / Internal Corrosion gig @ The Arts Factory a while back (click here to read that) and one from the Melt Banana / 400 Blows / Life's Torment gig @ The Bunkhouse from a while ago, and you can click here to read that one if you want. I got a bunch of Music Reviews coming up too, so yeah, things are getting better around the ol' website. So far so good I say.
I think the website is going to have to come with a disclaimer, so that any future band mates of mine can be given fair warning about what I do and what I'm about, and so they can save face when it comes to public scrutiny or kowtowing to the Punk Rock powers that be... heh

Yeah, my so called Friends and Band Mates have a very interesting slant on things, that's for sure. Apparently, saving face with the PRB Gods that Be and being able to partake and be fleeced in next years gathering of the Sheep is more important to them than I realized, so I did them the favor of quitting every and all bands associated with them. Now they can play PRB and have their precious Bowling teams without worry of being blacklisted because of their association with me. Do you hear that jackass fans of the PRB Facebook page? You won! Yaaaaayyy! Now go back to your PC dick sucking and find something else to bully people about. Believe me, I've got better things to do and I definitely don't need this shit, especially from people I'm in a band with. My critique of anything and everything associated with PRB next year is going to be 10 times worse than it was this year, so I did them the favor and cut myself out of their musical careers, cut myself out like a cancer. Now they can frolic guilt free with others of their ilk and be Proud and Happy to be a part of the Herd. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa. So yeah, I'm only down to being in 2 bands now - anyone need a non-PC, racist homophobic punk rock drummer with a very unpopular opinion? :-)
There's this Punk Rock gig happening tomorrow night at Yayo Taco with Punk Rock bands who aren't concerned about being blacklisted by the Stern Bros. in CA. or with being able to play PRB next year or with even being able to pay the $500 entrance fee to bowl next year, bands that I've never seen play before, bands with names like Heartless
, Dead In The Dirt
and Gods Rape...
, so I'm gonna head down there and check them out because that's what I do. I'm compelled to do so. I prefer seeing bands in small intimate venues like this because if and when they finally make it big and are playing the big festivals like PRB in front of hundreds, maybe even thousands of Punk Rock Sheep, that I can loudly and proudly proclaim how I saw them way back then and how they were better then than they are now, and I can take my rightful place on the outside of everything and throw rocks at those sheep on the inside of the pen. Didn't we learn anything from the cover of Minor Threat
's second LP? Out Of Step
- with the world. :-) I did! That's me. I not only heard the Music and the Message, but I listened as well. OK. I've gotta get ready for band practice with a band that doesn't have a problem with anything I say or do, a band called American Buckshot that believes in Freedom of Speech and the 1st Amendment and all it stands for. I'm gonna post our Demo we recorded back in 2010 (I think) on the Tunes page this week so you can all get hyped on what we're gonna be playing. We're coming back stronger than ever. :-) Oh, and the discussion between the 2 members of Public Humiliation on their entry I put up was priceless. I'm not sure if they were serious about it, but it sure was funny! hee hee hee Yeah, my website affects people in the strangest ways. Who knew one guys opinion held such merit? Certainly not me! Fools! LOL
And so it begins. :-/Yeah, Punk Rock Bowling is upon us, and the Drama already begins. I caught a little bit of slack for promoting that F.S.P. gig last night, but I know nothing about any alleged Racism back in the day or about any Racists being in the band, but if that's true, I might have to relegate them to bands that don't deserve to be supported.
Anyone know anything about this? Anyone wanna chime in?Gigs Gigs Gigs Gigs - tonight there's a whole bunch of them happening to choose from. If you don't know about them already, don't look at me for info. It's all on the Gig Calendar page, and you can go there by clicking here and figuring it out yourself.
I'm staying in tonight and being a good boy, because I gotta get up early to head out to Sam's Town to bowl with the Vegascendents
Team. Lane 1 @ Noon. Come hang! :-)I think I've converted every page on the website to the new format. I'm constantly adding all sorts of the old material to the website, like Pictures and Show Reviews, and I've added some new stuff too, like the Music Reviews on the latest from Ministry (click here to read that) and Surrounded By Thieves as well - click here to read that. I also added the Pictures I took of them playing @ the Bunkhouse a few weeks ago, and you can go here to check those out. That was a fun night to say the least. The Show Review of that gig is almost done. I'm just waiting to edit those Battle Born photos from that night and it will be done. Oh, I added a Tunes page with stuff to listen to on there, and the first thing I put up on that page was a release from Public Humiliation back in 1988. The album is called It All Started When I Was Five, and you can click here to check that release out. Fans of the Flaming Lips or the Dead Milkmen will like it.
Anyways, I'm going to go back to watching Chappelle's Show before calling it a night. Hope to see you at the D.I.
