My buddy sent me this link today to some super rare early footage of TSOL. Filmed in OC at Orange Coast College (probably one of those free lunch gigs) during the last days of the real TSOL before Jack left. Its a good mix of punk classics and their 1982 new wave record. Weird as fuck outfits which is 100% TSOL finery. Enjoy!
I loved the Amebix growing up – what they did was so different from every other “punk” band out there. I mean I don’t even know if you could call it “punk” per se but in the true spirit of “do your own thing” I guess yes it was definitely punk..although I think more appropriately you could say it was the “sound track to the apocalypse” Check out this rare documentary on the band and let me know what you think
As Glenn Danzig preps for the release of his band’s upcoming ‘Skeletons’ covers album, the singer stopped by Rolling Stone to discuss some of his early influences and how he emerged from New York’s nascent punk scene with the Misfits.
Nice piece by Henry on the impact that the Ramones had on his life and his friends life’s too. He takes us back to a time before punk rock and going to Arena Rock shows. Great little piece if you have a spare 20 minutes. Check it out
