My buddies band out of Shoreline, Wa. One of the few punk bands i know who use a theramin onstage. That is him using it in the video. He has a fantastic pinball collection and will be hosting league this month.

Quoted from bingopodcast:

One more before the weekend. Back in the early 2000s I converted all my records to Vorbis, which seemed like a good idea at the time (higher quality and lower storage needs than mp3, but low device support). Gave my records to someone when I moved. Some days I regret it. Still listen to this one frequently, but I wish I could still pull it out of the sleeve and look at the amusing/disturbing collage artwork.

Never in a million years would I imagine a guy named 'Bingopodcast' would have such excellent taste in obscure punk. I'll be honest, before this thread, I mistakenly assumed you were 80 years old enjoying yer assisted living lol. I'm diggin everything yer throwin out baby! Cheers

Glad you're picking up what I'm putting down. Not in a nursing home yet, but I did have blue hair at one point.

Antischism punctuated a lot of my time in high school.

And if you like crust, you've probably heard Destroy.
I've always been a fan of short and sweet songs. Wrote about a hundred in my day. Best part about crust, and the even faster stuff that came after - you get a dozen songs (or more) on one 33 rpm 7".

Throw a Molotov for me.

Quoted from Gryszzz:

Eh, Waddle's a young dude and been around here awhile, I always liked him...hes's an operator and one of the good guys. Just pullin yer chain buddy. You do you brother.
Bein friends with a lot of band geeks in school and in general, I've always wished there was a cool way to integrate horns into aggressive music. But there's not.
I do love Morphine and Coltrane though lol.

Lol, no offense taken at all, I walked into a punk thread so I'm definitely prepare to take some shit

Quoted from electricsquirrel:

Sadly, none exist (that I have). I've always been terrible about taking pictures. Some of my old friends or bandmates might have a pic or two. I'll ask around (if I can still get in touch with them).

I found cigarettes, booze, and punk almost simultaneously at 12. Shaved my head and started growing a mohawk. At its height (about 16) it was 1.5 ft. Putting up my hair took progressively longer and longer and it got irritating to ride in a car with it up, so I ended up wearing it down more frequently than up, and looked like a horse. Shaved it off shortly thereafter.

Dyed my hair many colors over the years, but usually ended up looking like puke as the dye came out. Gave up on dye at about 15.

I had liberty spikes for my girlfriend at the time's senior prom. I think I have those pics somewhere (embarrassing as they are).

Booze and cigarettes stayed longer than the hair, but they're both long gone now.

The gel one was always my preference. I also used acryllic paint at times. That shit would dry like rubber, was a bitch to get out, but kept my hair up for months at a time.

Huh! Never used paint but I also used the gel. Dried clear.

Listened to this album a lot in my senior year.

A Richmond band to start your Monday:

One of the first local punk bands I got really into. Started going to their shows at 12. A couple of the members formed Strike Anywhere later on.

Found Code 13 shortly after learning that Destroy broke up. Also Minneapolis-based, and the singer from Destroy came over. If you like early Destroy, you'll likely enjoy Code 13.

Just want to give a shout out to Bandcamp for one second. First, there is SO MUCH AMAZING MUSIC ON BANDCAMP.
Remember when you sifted through 7" bins and tried random stuff and found armloads of gems? That's what bandcamp is these days.
Bandcamp also passes 85% of the sale price on to the band, so buy from there and you're supporting your faves in a big way.

Plus, lossless FLAC download that isn't controlled by Spotify or Apple or whomever. Almost my entire music budget now goes through bandcamp.

I switched to band camp long ago when I heard it's the best deal for the bands.

Quoted from o-din:

Who are we kidding. Iggy Pop and The Ramones invented this shit. Or Iggy Pop invented this shit.
