Meat Puppets - Elite Club, San Francisco 9-12-81

Here's one more post before I take some time off. I got this a few years ago from a guy who didn't mark the venue or the date of the show. According to the in-between song chatter this is the first time they played in San Francisco. Does anyone know the date or the venue? I suspect it is the Mabuhay or maybe the On Broadway about 1981 or 1982. Also, can anyone fill in the song titles? This was recorded from the soundboard and the quality is very good.

Anthrophobia - Rehearsals + Demo 1985

My first band was Suburban Aggression which it started in 1982 and was also the first Punk band in my hometown of Reading Pennsylvania. In February 1984 we recorded a demo and split not too long after. A couple of the guys went on to form Anthrophobia who recorded a demo at the end of 1985. The singer moved to Philadelphia in 1986 and put together a new line up and existed with various line ups for more than 20 years. These demos and rehearsal represent the beginnings of that band.

Follow Fashion Monkeys - Philadelphia 2-08-87 + Demo 1987

Here's another lost band from Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania. The release one album in 1985, toured the USA with Italy's Indigesti and recorded an unreleased album in 1987 at Inner Ear studios that was produced and mixed by Ian MacKaye and Don Zientara. The live show here has 5 songs that were on that album and the demo has another one. I think that album is now available for purchase on Itunes or one of those internet sites. The live show was recorded through the soundboard so the quality is very good. Sound quality on the demo is also very good.

Zack Zack - Demo (2010)

Because I'm old and have been listening to Punk Rock for a long time, finding new bands that are interesting and exciting past a few listens is not easy but there are a few. One of those bands is Zack Zack from Berlin Germany. I'd never heard of them before I saw them last summer at Berlin's famous S.O. 36 club. I thought they were very good that night and recently I got this demo that they recorded and have been listening to it constantly since it arrived. They are definitely 70s Punk and Mod Revival inspired.

Nuns - Live shows 1976-1978 part 1

Someone a while ago requested some Nuns live shows so here is one from 1976 Los Angeles. I've had this on tape for a long time and the person I got it from squeezed it on the end of the tape. Unfortunately, the whole show did not fit and I've never been able to track down the complete show. It's an audience recording but the quality is listenable and there is three unreleased songs on it.

Peter Dayton Band - WBCN, Boston 1980

Most of you will know who La Peste are. Between 1977 and 1979 they were one of the top Punk bands in Boston and released one classic single. In 1979 their singer/guitarist Peter Dayton left the band to pursue a solo career. With that move came a change in musical style to a more New Wave/Pop sound. In 1981 he released his only solo record - a four song 12" ep produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars - and had two song on the Sharp Cuts compilation LP. Here's a live radio broadcast from 1980. It's interesting to see that he plays one La Peste song - Hold On To Love - in the set. The sound quality is great.

some info here:

01. Here Comes The Music
02. The Road
03. Hold On To Love
04. Stuck on the Same Refrain
05. Girl Watcher

old tape trade list

 Found this in the bottom of a box. It's not my list and I don't remember who it was from but it could give an idea of what was/is out there in tape trade land. Most of the stuff on it I never had. Some good stuff, too. The list is from around 1985.

Johnny Rotten and The Sex Pistols Magazine; Issue 1; 1978; USA

Back in the Spring of 1978 I finally got around to buying the Sex Pistols album.  For half a year I'd been reading about the band in the music magazines. And, all the magazines were writing about them. It took a few listens until I was completely hooked. Before that I was listening to Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Black Sabbath, UFO, etc. After becoming hooked on the music I wanted to know everything about the Sex Pistols and Punk Rock. Not too far from where I lived there was a farmer's market and there was a guy there who sold second hand magazines for very cheap. Whenever I had some money I would go there to see what I could find. One magazine I bought there was this Johnny Rotten and The Sex Pistols magazine for only 35 cents. Unfortunately, all the used magazines I got there had the title of the
magazine cut off. This was one of my favorite magazines at the time because it had many photos of the band in it as well as some text. Some of the photos I cut out and hung on the walls of my room. Eventually everything got put back in the magazine but a couple pages have been lost over the years. It's an interesting curiosity now but I think most of the photos are easily found today. It is still a fun read.

Musician magazine; Issue 34; July 1981

Musician magazine wasn't much of a magazine to read for Punk Rock. However, when Los Angeles Punk in 1981 became raw and controversial and was being talked about they printed an article about what was going on. This issue has a few other things that might be of interest to Punks.

In this issue:
-article on IRS Records
-article on Dave Edmunds
-short articles on Adam & The Ants, Ventures, U2
-Music and Violence Under The Palm Trees; article on L.A. Punk
-Record reviews - Dave Edmunds, Public Image Ltd.,
-Short Takes - Devo, Plastics, Cramps, Vapors, John Cale, Tuxedo Moon, Killing Joke

Adverts - Top Rank, Sheffield 8-19-79

This one is upped by request. I love the Adverts so certainly don't mind posting this for everyone that wants it. This show is especially interesting for two reasons. One is that they play most of the songs from the second album and the songs from the first album they play have the addition of keyboards. So, can you imagine what Gary Gilmore's Eyes sounds like with keyboards? It is a little different but I like it. The second reason is that there is no guitarist at all on this show. They play with just bass, drums, keyboards, vocals. I don't think you'll hear the Adverts sound like this anywhere else. Still sounds like a good show. It was recorded from the audience so sounds not perfect but surely worth a listen just to hear these songs in a slightly different way.

01. The Adverts
02. Back From The Dead
03. Male Assault
04. Fate Of Criminals
05. I Looked At The Sun
06. Television's Over
07. I Surrender
08. Bombsite Boy
09. New Church
10. Love Songs
11. Gary Gilmore's Eyes
12. No Time To Be 21
13. My Place
14. Cast Of Thousands
15. I Will Walk You Home
16. One Chord Wonders
17. The Adverts

Adverts - Live shows 1978

Here's three live Adverts shows from 1978. These shows are interesting because they are playing six new songs written after the first album, some of which would, in slightly different versions, end up on the second album. These were all recorded from the audience so the sound is raw. The Marquee has the best sound of the three despite some serious tape hiss.
