Occasionally songs get stuck in your head. The Sundays? Yup, had that happen. Love that whole album (eeks, does anybody remember what one of
those is?) and the one after.
Ever hear of The Distillers? This one got stuck for a month or two in the old noggin. And they tie in nicely with BD's quip about drug fueled
fiascos! They broke up, got back, broke up. Not sure where they stand now.
Yes, I remember albums, I've got a stack of vinyl I love way too much. I'm a bit late but welcome to ATS, hope you're feeling at home. I think I
played these local boys earlier on, but it's time for another:
The Exploited, Barmy Army. Watty trying to remember how to spell Exploited always cracks me up.

No problem! (re: being late to greet) Yeah, finding my way around the forums fairly well. Strange having to contribute instead being in lurker mode
all the time!
Exploited, wow. Now I am feeling all kinds of nostalgia. Punks not dead! Makes me want to go dig out The Damned, Circle Jerks (wild in the streets?
Pretty sure it was them), and some Black Flag (Authority, bull sh*t. We don't need it! We don't want it! Authority! BULLSH*T!)
May have embraced the "alternative" music but punk was the first "my music" I had. With the ones previous mentioned, DK, Violent Femmes, Husker Du,
Stiff Little Fingers. I'll admit to the 80's heavy metal scene as well but people freak when they find out that the punk ethos is where most it
(points at self) comes from.
Not sure if these guys have been mentioned yet. Daydream Nation was on constant play in the way back times. Still love putting it on the ipod every
now and then. Vid: Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot (for those with u-tube blocked)

I've never been properly introduced to Gallon Drunk... (shuts eyes, listens and thinks waaaaaay back) oh yeah... they were on my radar some decades
ago, if I'm pulling up the right brain files, but they fell off my screen when I lost my love of: music, art, literature, outdoors, sex, bathing,
animals, food ...and almost myself, in the 90's due to my own version of ...er, 'Trainspotting'... so thanks, Been-shy ... they are quite good (and I
have regained the general love, btw, if that seemed maudlin or too much info laden)!
As this has degenerated into a sloppy, drunk, members-only after-party in the basement of the 'beloved alt/punk' museum (and not bad as far as museums
go)... then here... my third or so most beloved altsters after Pixies... back to
Pixies....... always the topper! Forgot about them I miss those times. Truly. Play 'till your ears bleed and everyone else's, then everybody
to the waffle house for drinks and syrupy breakfast at 4:00 a.m., followed by crashing on the beach.
Gorilla Biscuit........... known, in part, for always inciting a sorta interactive mosh pit ON STAGE with the audience. Awesome.
Well after-parties are usually better, particularly the three-day long Trainspotting kind. Ach, but those days have gone now (and in the past they
I still can't get over that you've seen that - I didn't know it was big in America.
Faith was The Cure's best album in my feeble opinion, Siamese Twins is maybe my favourite:
I'm glad you got your love back. Too much of a good thing is usually...not so good in the long run.
Hey you! Just in time, we were just talking about those 24hr parties of long ago.
I saw the Pixies at T in the Park and they were amazing, but his alter ego with The Catholics was pretty close:
All My Ghosts
I've never heard those guys (Gorilla Biscuits), they're not too bad at all! Sounds like a good gig.
SLF used to play The Barrowlands every St Paddy's night in Glasgow - the place used to go mental. I had to fish a bloke's tooth out of my pint for him
after it went pinging out.
Ah, happy days.
