Nekromantix / Lobo Negro / Black Rose Phantoms / The Loud Pipes / Holy Smokes / Big Rig / Absent Minded @ The Huntridge Theater
by GE 138
Where do I begin to tell you how FUCKED up this show was from the get go? As soon as we walked into the Huntridge it was complete tough guy attitude from all the Psychobilly wankers that were in there, with their gay ass looking hair and their stand up basses. They all thought they were just the hottest thing ever, and I just had a really bad feeling that it was gonna get real ugly before it got pretty, ya know? And then we found out from Tom that instead of 3 bands on the bill, it was now bumped up to 7! What the fuck was that all about? Apparently some bands weaseled their way onto the bill, and you can look at the flyer to the left and figure out which ones were supposed to play, and which ones were just being leeches. I mean, these ball-less ass fuckers had the gall to pick on Brandon from Absent Minded (guess they were jealous of his guitar playing) when I was standing around. They were just talking loud and begging for trouble. Fucking pussies. I love the fact that they pick on the one little guy that didn’t want any trouble, ignoring Jesse and I who were looking for trouble and we were both sizing up victims to beat the dog shit out of when things went sour. Fucking Psychobilly cowards... I piss on the whole lot of them.
Anyways, Absent Minded were up first, and I have no idea why they were OPENING for Big Rig and the Holy Smokes... who the fuck are those clowns anyways? I heard they were Local bands, and I heard they were AZ. bands... in either case, they shouldn't of been on the bill! Not because they sucked (which they did), but because they didn’t flyer for the gig... weren't on any of the ads for the show... NOTHING! Absent Minded were so good (as always) and people dug the shit out of them. They really are my favorite Local band, and when you consider how young they are, it just makes it all the more remarkable. Absent Minded are an incredible band and play around town all the time... go see them NOW!!
Big Rig played next and just totally lost all the momentum that Absent Minded got going with their set. Did I mention that Big Rig sucked? Good. Holy Smokes were up next and the only thing that made them different than all the other Psychobilly bands that were playing was that they had a harmonica player... big whoop. Did I mention that they sucked as well? Good.
We were up next and we proceeded to fuck shit up Loud Pipes style, although nothing got broke, except for my drum sticks! I didn’t think that the crowd was going to like us that much, but the pit was raging our whole set, and all the people who were outside during the previous 2 crappy bands came in to watch us go off... it was so great!! We dedicated the set we played to the memory of Bruce Lee, and to the anniversary of the Apollo moon landing... and Jesse gave a special shout out to some friends in attendance as well. I thought we played a great sounding set, and a big Thanks to all the people who pogo and slam around and pump their fists in the air to us when we play and who know the words to the songs better than Bryan does! Just kidding.
Black Rose Phantoms were up next and I cannot stress the fact enough that they sucked! Pathetic band with a fucking weak ass sissy drummer backing a bunch of stupid looking Psychobilly fucks trying to play like 7 Seconds... talk about an identity crisis! If it wasn't for the fact that they were using the same equipment that the Nekromantix were using, they also would have / should have been the opening band. Did I mention that they sucked? Good.
Even though they too were sharing the same equipment with the Nekromantix, it took forever for Lobo Negro to start playing, and believe me, it wasn't worth the wait. They're from CA., and they had the biggest bunch of pricks / friends / wanna-be tough guys with them, but the funny thing is, once those fucks saw us play, suddenly they lost all their attitude and swagger. Guess they were shocked at how violent and scary we are when we play, or maybe it was the fact that they saw that we walk it like we talk it, hmmmm? In any case... they were a little better than all the other crappy Psychobilly bands that played, but that's not saying much…. heh heh heh.
The Nekromantix played last, but I was so sick and tired of hearing all those other crappy Psychobilly bands that I didn't even pay any attention to them really... sounded boring to me. Besides, I was too busy chatting with everyone outside and hanging out eating the ice creams that Caty bought back from somewhere... they were sooooo good! Big Sticks and Popsicles... yummm. God Bless Caty and the plastic tubing that she now has running in and out of her body... she's the best. Everywhere I went people were like "Where are you getting the ice cream from?" ha ha ha It was funny. After a while the show ended and everybody went home or whatever. So to bring this diatribe to a close... fuck the Psychobilly bands that played this show... fuck the pussies in the audience that liked them, or are friends with them, and a big FUCK OFF to the assholes that were in attendance. Why don't you all go die?
