The Germs (GI)

Horrendously beautiful.


Fun fact: That album was produced by Joan Jett.

Fail to see what's so "silly" about legitimately oppressed peoples using a form of music designed specifically as counterculture protest music.  Similar music scenes have popped up...well, just about everywhere, in the past 35 or so years.  See: metal scene in Botswana, small-yet-thriving punk scene in Nepal.

Primitive Screwhead: That No Forever band is pretty good. I dig 'em.

JerseyTim: Maybe I'll take a holi-

h2ogate: Sounds like a nice place for a holiday.

goddamit!

Fine I'll just post the graphic and walk away...

PunkTiger: I wonder if there's a DK cover band there?


I've been wanting to do one for years but that sh*t is deceivingly difficult to play and the sound is even harder to emulate. Even the original band pretty much sucked playing that stuff live. They were golden in the studio though.

In God We Trust studio footage (probably NSFW language)

Metal is another extremely pervasive scene globally despite rises and falls in mainstream popularity. Usually where there is a lot of religious oppression. Although there have been many concerted efforts to create a "metal/punk/hardcore" crossover (most notably by Scott Ian of Anthrax) metal and punk do still tend to be somewhat segregated. Things are getting better though.

I think GWAR does this nicely, especially their early albums.

I bet it would sound great on my 5 grand stereo.  You know, when I'm not playing ethnicky jazz to parade my snazz.

And so does China, and Thailand and even Islam has taqwacore.
The quote I saw from a Chinese punk being interviewed. 
Interviewer: "Aren't you worried about getting killed for being a political dissident?"
Punk: "meh we have beer"

Meh...the metal/punk division is merely rhetorical at this point.  The only people that think there are substantial differences between the two are trendriders looking for something to complain about, or scenesters that don't even have a great impression of what punk or metal really is.

See: Nails, Converge, Trap Them, Trash Talk, Entombed, Bad Brains, MDC, Suicidal Tendencies, Slayer, Napalm Death, Jello Biafra & The Melvins, Metallica, the Misfits, Danzig, Late Rollins-era Black Flag/Rollins band, Jucifer, etc. etc. ad infinitum

Definitely and to go back to the old days when there was outright hostility between the two scenes Motorhead has always been revered by both.

Been watching Motorhead docs too. "Guts and Glory", "Live Fast Die Old" are up on youtube and even the latest one "Lemmy" got uploaded long enough for me to watch it but I'm not sure how long that one lasted.

F*ck I hope I get a chance to meet Lemmy before he goes. He was not looking too good in that last one.

There is definitely crossover and relations are a lot better than they used to be in the seventies/early eighties but as a guy that actually was a bridge in the styles in my own area there is still a gap. Now it's mostly just somewhat lighthearted joking and bills not intermingling as opposed to utter violence but it is still there and I got mocked by elements on both sides for participating in the other.

So while those bands have managed to break out of the molds the club shows and street level scenes aren't as meshed as they should be. This however is mostly due to lyrical content, political ideologies and sadly in many cases fashion which is the most nauseating part.

Metal: you need guitarists with talent
Punk: above is optional

/oops wrong album

Depends on which album.

[punkygibbon.co.uk image 850x660]

Oh yeah, I thought it was on Plastic Surgery Disasters. Doh.


The album version of Holidays was on Fresh Fruit, there was no album version of TDTF.  Give Me Convenience (posted) is singles and rarities and stuff (and one of the best punk albums ever).
 
2014-01-13 09:33:56 PM  
Punk in the junior hobo/Chris Hansen sense, unfortunately.
 
2014-01-13 10:17:23 PM  
I knew there were bands in Thailand (a friend is part of the scene there) so this doesn't surprise me.

Yes, that is where the mistake I made came from. I misremembered TDTF as a song off the album Plastic Surgery Disasters instead of a single, which is what it was. I am deeply sorry for my mistake and I pledge to listen to the DK discography on repeat until I am certain I will never make it again.
