The Hanson Brothers continued as a band through the death of their drummer Ken Jenson of DOA, who tragically died in a house fire in and put out a number of releases and toured Europe. They've played Seattle a few times over the years. It was a great show! We interviewed them for 10 Things at it, I'll run the interview later. Since the band contains all three NoMeanNo members, they never really officially ended.
Although their last recorded material came out in , The Hanson Brothers played out live about a dozen times in Canada during The Vaccines. Take a couple Kent 3 and Los Hornets members, throw in a love of old school punk and skate rock, mix in a bunch of alcohol, and you had a syringe full of The Vaccines.
The Vaccines were a fairly short-lived Seattle punk band that played around town in the late '90s and early s. They played a bunch of fun shows at places like The Storeroom, Gibson's and Zak's and managed to put out one 7" before calling it quits. Jason, pictured with Slim behind him continued playing in the Kent 3 for a few years after The Vaccines.
Thursday, August 9, Pud. This is a photo of Pud playing in the basement of the Hellbound House in the U-District sometime around '96 or ' They played pretty anthemic punk, like a faster '70s Clash mixed with 's Cali pop punk.
Their one album on Recess Records is definitely worth seeking out you can hear samples from all the songs at AudioLunchbox. I think Jon wanted a less offensive and less silly name that his parents would approve of. Solana and all of their friends were trying to convince them to change the name to Hearts and Bones.
That would have been even worse! They ended up changing the name back to Pud because people like me kept calling them "Shit Factor Five. I'm the Shark! In amid the old school punk rock revival, the Social Chaos Tour was hatched. Nearly a dozen older punk bands and a few later ones toured the United States. The original line-up for the tour included T. Subs, D. Peligro of the Dead Kennedys. I love this description of the tour from Detroit's Metro Times: " Social Chaos leans heavily on second-generation English, beer-soaked, politico testosterone outfits.
The UK Subs, D. Labels: 10 , Doc Martens Dr. The lost Spits Interview: Part 2. Monday, August 6, Crossover. When was the last time you heard a band described as crossover? There was an era in the mids where a bunch of punk bands started playing a lot more metal and the genre got quickly labeled as crossover, mainly because D.
Probably today it would just be called hardcore or thrash, but crossover was the blend of punk and metal that became prominent in the mid-'80s. Bristle was a band I caught at the Storeroom for the first time around and thought they totally rocked. Drummer Graham was drunk and stumbling around yet somehow played with lots of energy.
Bassist Tim was long-haired and I thought was kind of a mellow hippie guy until I saw him get up and play. And frontman Lonnie was super energetic and could go from sounding pissed and angry sounding to laughing and telling jokes in a flash. Bristle is a band who's songs on their first album I knew by heart long before it came out because I saw them live so many times.
I've seen so many great shows with Bristle on the bill over the years it's amazing. I was more than happy to have songs by Bristle on both of the Northwest punk compilation CDs I put out back in the day because to me they were one of thee essential Seattle punk bands of the s. The band broke up in , but reformed four years later and have since released another album and still play out live occasionally.
You can catch more band history and here a few of their songs over on their MySpace profile , but ultimately they are one of those bands that you gotta see live.
Murder City Devils. I'll do a proper entry for the Murder City Devils later, but this is a live photo of them performing at the Velvet Elvis. Note, as with all the photos on this blog, if you click on them you will get a larger version. Bloody Guy in the Pit! It seemed like at punk shows in the '80s and '90s there was often a bloody guy in the pit. Someone that fell down and cut them self or accidentally got hit with flying elbow to the face, yet was having such a great time, that they continued to dance and have fun despite having a gaping bloody wound.
My guess is usually was because they were so drunk they didn't care or realize how bad they looked, but sometimes they were just really into the band and wouldn't miss them for anything. This photo is of Jeff, one of the singers of hardcore band Cease and Desist, after he fell down drunk at a show and then continued to dance around banging into everyone. You can see he's bleeding pretty bad his head. Everyone was trying to keep him from falling over again, as well as push him away from them so he didn't get blood all over them.
The Donnas. I took this picture backstage when I was hanging out with The Donnas after interviewing them. I'd been a fan of the band since I first heard them on one of their early singles. Four 15 or 16 year old girls blasting out raw and catchy garage rock, what's not to love? Heavier guitars and production values, however, didn't completely change their music, they still had the same funny and simplistic songs about partying and boys.
I found the transition or evolution of The Donnas pretty normal, although I know a lot of their earlier fans felt disillusioned by the direction they went. So when I was music editor for Tablet when they were touring in , I lined up an interview with them at their October 26th show at Graceland. They were hilarious,, telling me about their love of "That '70s Show" and a couple good growing up and tour stories. After the interview they offered me beer and food and we ended up hanging out for a while before they had to play.
It was one of the most down to earth interviews I've ever done at a rock club, usually they are slotted with a very limited time frame and the band gives pat answers, so it was refreshing to hang out and talk with The Donnas, rather than have it seem very formal. The band put on a great show, it was the second time I had seen them the first was at the Vegas Shakedown and they were totally on that night.
Currently the band has parted ways with Atlantic and will be releasing their next album September 18th on their own new label, Purple Feather.
It will be interesting to see how the band does going back to putting out their own music, but they've already signed a distribution deal with Redeye Distribution and are fairly popular, so I have to think they'll still do well. The new album with be called "Bitchin'" and ther are a few tracks up on their MySpace profile.
Labels: The Donnas. The Misfits Reunion. The Misfits broke up in , a few years before I considered myself a punk rocker or really had an extensive knowledge of the the punk scene. I was just a kid, although I had an old Misfits tape I loved.
Later I picked up some of their stuff on vinyl and got into them for quite a while, their catchy tunes and silly horror themes were a perfect amalgamation of my tastes in music and movies!
When The Misfits reformed in the mid's minus Glen Danzig on vocals I was pretty sure I would check them out live. Even though many of the punk reunion shows I had been to weren't so hot, I still was drawn to them part out of nostalgia and part to see if it would be a train wreck or not. November 4th, the "American Psycho" tour hit Seattle's Rckcndy. This was a smaller venue for a band as big as The Misfits, I figured it would probably be the best setting to catch them in.
H20 and hardcore legends Sick of it All opened, neither were so hot by that point in their careers, although SOIA was fun to watch. Singing for The Misfits was Michael Graves, a young kid who actually did a decent job even if he was a bit of an idiot.
He later became the spokesperson for the "conservative punk" movement with a website and became the victim in a hilarious segment on conservative punk on The Daily Show. The Misfits ended up being fun live. They put on a cartoonish punk show, did a ton of their classics and we all sung along, and when the show ended Jerry Only and Doyle hopped out into the audience and hung out shaking people's hands and thanking them for coming to the show which seemed really weird, but also quite cool.
I didn't see them on any of the subsequent tours as singers and band members kept changing, but for a moment I saw a glimpse of what the magic would have been like back when they were in their prime, which is really all you can ask for with a reunion show.
Thursday, August 2, The Catheters. The Catheters formed in in Bellevue, Washington. After switching drummers with another band, the main line-up was formed with Brian Standeford on vocals, Derek Mason on guitar, Dave Brozowski on drums, and Paul Waude on bass. The Catheters was a band who's sound seemed to be constantly evolving.
In their early years they were bratty teenage punks, their music was akin to something you would have heard out of LA in the mid-'80s. Their debut single in on Beer City captures this with both the sound and artwork. But the band's sound started getting more rock, thanks in part to band members being into the sound coming from Seattle's Murder City Devils. Listen Now with Amazon Music. Amazon Music Unlimited.
