The Punk Thread

Recommended Posts

I reckon I've listened to Boogadaboogadaboogada about two hundred times in the last couple of years. I guess coming out in '88 it had just the right balance of hardcore and the pop punk sensibilities that totally ruined their later records. I even like the sweet ones about fancying Madonna and letting sunshine into your life.

Ooh!

Here are some other punk blogs that I like using...maybe they'll be helpful? Mainly 80s hardcorey stuff....but a few more varied punk types. Some of these I haven't used in a while so they may not have working links etc.

http://cantstandthe80s.blogspot.com/ (probably one of my favourites although hasn't been updated in months, there's still a lot on there)

http://kidsofthe80.blogspot.com/

http://www.goodbadmusic.com/

http://www.kbdrecords.com/

http://kamikazetailspin.blogspot.com/

http://7inchcrust.blogspot.com/

http://nomorevictim.blogspot.com/

That list is mega. I've been looking for ages for some decent punk blogs. Nice one!

I never knew Justin Person of The Locust appeared on Jerry Springer, totally taking the piss.

Ha, what a guy. My friend always says she's in love with him.

Today is Angry Samoans day.

Might listen to the whole discography today. They were pretty consistent for a punk band.

Oooh...I might copy you in that. Angry Samoans day sounds good. :D Actually...I fancy listening to some Agnostic Front too. Maybe today I'll work my way through the As of punk.

My favourite punk album (probably favourite album) is Plastic Surgery Disasters w/ In God We Trust, Inc. by Dead Kennedys.

If there is a better punk record than Why by Discharge I would love to hear it, This is the perfect record as far as I can tell.

I've not heard this album, which would you say is the best song on it?

I never got on with Discharge, to be honest. Something about them always annoyed me a bit. Might try again though.

Currently enjoying the Human Mess' LP that came out this year.

Pretty much every song clocks in under a minute, and makes me wanna kick all the furniture out the window and set fire to it.

Human Mess - Aftertaste

My barber is a nice chap, always does a good job. But he plays in a band called SO77. Sad thing is he couldn't be further from a punk.

My friend once had the drummer from UK Subs turn up to fit a bath or something. In the city you're never more than three feet from a punk.

HELLS YES. Definitely my favourite DK album and probably one of my favourite albums. Whoop!

Punkwise I'm currently enjoying Born%20Against%20cover.jpg

i really like the In God We Trust Inc EP but i think Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables is DK's best album.

Discharge are alright in bursts of a couple of songs at a time, any more than that and they become really one-dimensional.

after spending two days trying to get the physical release of hot snake's sucide invoice for under £20 on the internet I got it for 5.99 from itunes.

Vinyl or CD? I might be able to hook you up if you're still interested. Got a buddy who's selling off his record collection on the cheap, and I'm sure he'll have that.

CD. I've got the other two so I was kinda looking to complete the collection. No bother now though, can't really justify buying it twice just now.

Cross-thread inter-post spectacular:

Anyone going to the strange-yet-awesome coupling of Propagandhi + Protest the Hero on Monday?

Propagandhi + Protest the Hero + Strike Anywhere.

All three bands were exceptionally good last night. If you're not going to a leg of this tour, you're clearly a mental.

For some reason, I couldn't find this thread... anyway, see below for some FREE crust-punk goodness.

I don't know what's happened to the punk thread, but anyone looking for some crust-punk could do a lot worse than Spain's Down To Agony. In true DIY spirit, all their albums are free to download on their site. Disfear / Converge vibe going on.

Is Rollins worth seeing on his Spoken Word tours? I've never seen him before and he's playing (speaking?) nearby early next year.
Inspiring, heartbreaking, total dynamite. I saw him at Reading Festival though so only got 1 hour when he usually does 3 I think.

I saw Rollins last night, he was indeed excellent. Inspiring is exactly the word. Thought some of his points were a bit confused and contradictory, although he's certainly not claiming to know the answers, and we did indeed get the full 3 hours (no interval) - could have maybe cut it down by 30 minutes or so but it was a pleasure to be in his company, so engaging and charismatic.
