WBSTYN will be doing a limited re-print of both issues as well as the incomplete third issue to be sold at the book release parties listed on the right. All three will come in a poly bag with an accompanying print of a Davo Schiech photo. They will be hand-stamped and limited to 100 copies. So, in the words of the late great Townes Van Zandt, ‘See you this summer…BRING MONEY!’
From the moment I walked into this place I knew it was gay, but let’s not talk about that. S.T. were really good, a hell of alot better than on record, plus the guys in the band are cool as shit. Black Flag with Henry kills. He’s on top of the crowd fifty percent of the time and he looks mean as shit. He even bit some kid during ‘Damaged I’ which made me laugh. You can’t really hear Dez too much but you still know he’s there for sure. Greg just goes nuts now and Chuck goes even more crazy. Robo was stuck in England so they flew in Billy from the Descendents to play. He was more than adequate. Great band, nobody can touch them now except for The Misfits.
Reagan Youths’ singer is the American Stinky Turner, that’s all I can say. The Bad Brains were great, ‘cept for the Reggae bullshit, plus some asshole white rasta kept saying ‘Take your neo-nazism away from here’ to us – cuz we’re skins. FUCK HIM!
Black Flag joined on the bill at the last minute, great gesture. They did a short set of about ten songs, totally fuckin’ great. Henry didn’t stop moving from the minute they got on stage. They should be coming here very soon (Kazoo or Detroit) Necros were the best I’ve seen them. Todd almost died, Brian went nuts, Corey kept breaking stuff, and Barry kept crawling on the floor crying or screaming. I think they struck more fear into the hearts of the Jersey people than Black Flag or The Misfits cuz they were just kids to them. Weird people. Great set totally. The Misfits were next, Jesus Christ they were great. Doyle kept stepping on peoples fingers and jamming his spike thing on his boot into their face. Jerry broke two basses. Googy is a way of life. Glenn was his usual great self. The best band in the world. Along with my other two all time fave bands. The best gig of the decade.
God this place reeks of homosexual. Lots of fags running around, lots of biker types and disco drop outs and literally flocks and flocks of punked out chicks, 99% of them longing for my young punk rock penis. Shit, you should’ve seen the one I ended up scamming on, all I said was that I was here with the Necros and she started talking to me and looking at me really weird. She had on a leopard skin skirt and weird red boots and bleach blonde hair. Uh, back to the review. All the kids who could scam fake I.Ds’ did and so all the cool young kids ended up getting in. Negative Approach were great, all the assholes got thrashed and we immediately took over the dance floor. Great band. Couple of new songs, too. Necros totally avenged their supposed flop on the 6th. They ended up playing their best set I’ve ever seen them do, and I’ve seen them about 15 times. So many kids were totally into them so much, it’s great. Everybody knew all the words and we all went nuts and all the assholes got crushed by stage dives. Even Allison & Carole were diving, that’s cool when girls have the fuckin’ guts to stage dive, bet they don’t stage dive in NY or LA (DC I know they do) The Midwest should be proud to have these two great bands at the top of their scene. The Damned thought they were great and they sucked donkey penis. Captain Sensible was talking about no rules and then when you try to get on stage to dive off, two bruisers try to literally wipe you off the face of the earth. We did have a lot of fun imitating everyone pogoing. U.S.H.C. RULES!!! In other words, two relatively unknown Mid-American punk bands blew the pants off of Englands’ last of the original punk bands.
MARCH 12 CLUTCH CARGOS DETROIT – U.K. SUBS & ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE
What a fuckin’ hot show!!! Clutch Cargos is so loose on I.D. even Danforth got in (very young looking skater) There were all these punked out chicks after my dick cuz I cruised up with Todd (Necros) They were all over him like stink on shit. Anti-Nowhere League were really no disappointment to me or any of the kids. They were really funny and didn’t care at all what anyone thought of them. They even did a great cover of ‘Rock Around The Clock’ replacing ‘Rock’ with ‘Fuck’, plus another cover, ‘Runaway’. They were pretty nice guys too, well rather drunk but they’re English, so it’s natural. U.K. Subs were one of the best bands I’ve ever seen in my life, so fuckin’ tight and really loud. Charlie is cool as shit too. All of those guys are great guys. Nicky Garrett was totally going nuts, jumping off the monitors every second. Todd from the Necros got to do drums for their last song (Waiting For The Man) cuz their drummer conked out. All the skaters totally ruled with tons of stage dives. This lame chick that Zuheir pushed on stage got her shirt almost ripped off her back. There’s all these D.C. clone chicks here too, they look cute but you know there just copying girls from elsewhere. Charlie is totally into the U.S.H.C. bands, which is really cool. Also both Anti-Nowhere League and The Subs said that this show was better than both DC and NYC Very easy to believe I say M.W. RULES!!
