Very surprised to see Generation X up there – would’ve thought them way too poppy for the former Black Flag front man. Ditto the Buzzcocks – we in the Nasties loved ’em and covered ’em, but Rollins? Weird.
Other things I note: it’s Alternative TV, not Alternate TV. Surprising number of Brit waxings, too, and not much in the way of California punk sounds. And there is an overwhelming number of first albums in there. That’s because (as in the case of the Pistols, Germs) smack can seriously interfere with you life plans.
It’s also because – as some wag once said – you get your whole life to make your first album. But only two weeks to make the second.
Apropos of nothing, then, here is SFH’s latest, ‘Mayor On Crack?’ Push it over 11,000 views! We played together for the last time in a long time, last night, and we need the royalties for our many ex-wives!
