So this is one of the two versions of Black Flag that’s currently doing the rounds – This is the Keith Morris (Circle Jerks / Off!) version
Love this band – let me know what you think about this song
Another State of Mind is a documentary film made in the summer of 1982 chronicling the adventure (and misadventure) of two punk bands — Social Distortion and Youth Brigade — as they embark on their first international tour. Along the way they meet up with another progressive punk band, Minor Threat, whom they hang out with at the Dischord house for about a week near the end of their ill-fated tour.
Found this great Minor Threat video I had never seen before – from Canoga Park LA back in 1983
The birth of Italian hardcore punk. The cities and the hotbeds of punk. Self-management, squats, politics. D.I.Y., tapes and vinyl. Independent labels. Fanzines and counter-culture word-of-mouth. Concerts, rallies, demonstrations. The battles, the violence, the excesses and the drugs. The antagonistic relationship between the punk movement and the press, daily papers and magazines. The beginnings, rise and fall of the big bands of the ’80s. Interviews and rare live footage from Raw Power, Wretched, Negazione, CCM, Indigesti, Kina, Peggio Punx, Impact, Upset Noise and many others.
To be released in 2013. After the end of the world.
This band was an early Perth Crust punk – hc band – I was friends with Ivan the vocalist and I really can’t remember who else was in the band – funnily enough my memory is very vague on if I even saw these guys live or not – I am pretty sure I did but who knows after all it was 3o years ago now (1983) anyways check out their title track Threshold of Pain
Back in the mid 90s I used to talk on the phone to Chuck D from Black Flag/ SST records once a month – I told him that I had a live recording that featured “Yes I know” and ‘What can you believe?” two previously unreleased great songs and that he needed to make sure they come out – about 6 weeks later I was in Selectadisc records and there they were on cd! I didn’t have the money at the time to buy it – import cd and all that – so I came back the next day and boom it was gone! turns out later it was a bootleg but here is the song “yes I know” from that cd
