Always a fun time in CA. hahahaha
The Battalion Of Saints / False Confession / Circle One / Headnoise gig at the Regal Inn was a bit intense, to say the least! LOL Gang violence is never a good thing, but when you try it on a bunch of veteranos who were doing it back when you were still swimming around in your daddy's nutsack, the outcome is never gonna be in your favor youngster... LOL I don't think we'll be playing gigs with Circle One anymore, which is a shame because they sounded great at the gig. Any chance I get to watch Mike Vallejo rip it up is good, but the same shitty Family members that gave them a bad rep back then are still around doing the same shit today, and I know I got waaaaaaaayyyyy better things to do than deal with that shit, so FOAD scumbags. Can't even fight 1 on 1... cowards.
Once the Drama was dealt with, it was a great night. False Confession killed it! Nardcore!! They played Kill For Fun and I lost it, starting a mini slam pit with Rob Headnoise and a few others in the parking lot... ha ha Battalion Of Saints were nice and LOUD. Their guitar player was sporting a Mob Attack shirt! Fuck yeah! LOL Their drummer Tino was using my kit, so they sounded extra good, and he seemed to be having waaaaaayyyyy too much fun bashing the shit out of my China crash cymbal... but the cowbell, not so much. 😆They played like 30 songs, pretty much everything I wanted to hear, and they didn't sound half bad while doing it. The only original member left is the original singer George Anthony, but he still sounds evil and just as maniacal while screaming out the lyrics to all those classic BOS tunes. It was a great night, despite all the BS.
Sunday Headnoise had a matinee gig down at The Karman Bar in Laguna Niguel, a really proper venue located right next to some costly looking townhomes that get to hear every note coming out of the bar - lucky them! We played with a bunch of young angry Thrash Punk bands who were more along the lines of Cryptic Slaughter and S.O.D. than anything else, but the gig was still fun, and any excuse I get to stay a little bit longer in Cali is always appreciated. Happy times in California... why do I live in Vegas again??? 😅😅😅
