Opening band The Daycare Swindlers seem like nice people, but their very Avengers sounding music didn't do much for me. Chick singer/guitarist... chick bass player... dude drummer. Yawn.
Now I had heard some good things about Toxic Narcotic, but I'm not sure why based on what I saw. Growled out vocals over noisy music. Reminded me of Raw Power. Wasn't feeling it. They seemed really into what they were doing, so I'll give them that.
I ran into Matt from Walk Proud and his wife Sandy while smoking outside. It was cool seeing him again after all these years.
G.B.H. were up next and it didn't look good from the beginning. Colin didn't have his hair spiked... Ross looked really old and tired. The only one who looked the same was Jock! G.B.H. played all the Hits and the kids ate it up. Colin was talking a lot of shit about Las Vegas, which was irritating, and the drummer with the double kicks kept fucking up the songs, so once again, I was disappointed with G.B.H. Boooooooooooo. I saw Fat Mike & Crew hanging out backstage... and while back there I ran into Chalo from the Plugz!!! I was soooooo stoked!!! After acting like Fan Boy with him for awhile, I tried to get him to call my wife Debra, because she knows him too, and he said maybe later. Of course he never did, but that's beyond the point. The fucking Plugz man... the Soundtrack to my Childhood.
