    • I JUST REAd miriam linna and randy fuller's bio on Bobby fuller , "i fought the law". You can imagine the artist's brother and biggest fan would get it right. They did.    I'm reading "Hardcore Zen" by my friend , Brad Warner. Brad was in a Cleveland HC band , Zero Defex , and the Cleveland/Chicago Psych band , Dimentia 13. HE RELOCATED TO JAPAN , and found himself working his dream job , at Tsuburaya Studios (Ultraman.). Along the way he became a student of Zen Buddhism , and , eventually , a recognized Priest. THE BOOK IS BASICALLY ABOUT HIS JOURNEY, AND HOW IT MAY OR MAY NOT HELP YOU. There's a lot of humor , monsters and Punk Rock.             excuse the caps. It's late.

    • Matt - That book is incredible. I'm not one for Western novels, but I've read it twice.

      I'm currently reading the repressings of Jim Thompson's novels. I just started The Transgressors.
      Looking to finish 50 books this year.

    • Yes, I love stuckism!


      When I first got into proper garage punk and started reading about all thing BC it was one thing that fascinated me. Proper art, proper punk. 


      More recently the other week Bill Lewis, one of the founding stuckists, came in to my shop and I had a little chat with him. Great guy. He is still Medway through and through and full-time artist. Interestingly he told me how at his first poetry night (back in the 70's i think) a certain Ralph Steadman was watching.

    • Re/Search publications issued this brilliant collection of interviews in the early 2000's.  It includes an entertaining lengthy interview with BC.  Much of the discussion focuses on the Childish theory of art and creativity.  This book also has great interviews with Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Henry Rollins and Jello Biafra.

    • Ever get the feeling most of what Chyldish does is sincere until it builds speed and becomes a joke? I love his work and his legacy and have nuthin' but love for him.

    • I know this is the worst first post ever, but the band is good and you guys all probably like free records.

      We're trying to get funds to make a music video for The Mandates and it's based on votes.  If you take a minute to vote for the project I'll pick some people at random and send them some records from Hosehead records.

      Comment that you voted the 5 votes and I'll pick some winners at random next week.

    • Any of you weirdos like baseball? A bunch of us have a private discussion group on Fartbook called Baseball Freaks (a group for baseball fans [and players] who are a little left of center). If you'd like in, lemme know. It's stupid fun at the ol' ballgame. We also have a blog but no one seems interested in posting anything: and Twitter: @baseballfreaks

      That said, we can also talk about it here (why not?). Who's your team? Do you (like me) actually prefer independent ball? I root for the Gateway Grizzlies here in St. Louis. And, of course, the Cards.

      All-time favorite players would be Rube Waddell, Bill "Spaceman" Lee, Bob Gibson, Mark "The Bird" Fidrych, Dizzy Dean, Ted Simmons, Willie "E.T." McGee, Satchel Paige, and Gorgeous George Sissler. 

      Oh yeah, and I also play corkball whenever I get the chance.

    • Hollywood-based 'multimediatician' Josh Roush dropped some pleasing video news last week: He's posted his first edition of Video Archives, revolving around old Ghoulardi clips (see embed below). The video clips come from Roush's own collection of bootleg VHS, DVD and digital recordings. Much of his stash is super-rare stuff.

    • Taking Punk back to it's late 70's/early 80's roots, it was a place for the displaced to be applauded vs in disgrace. Total non conformist type? BRO! Don't fit in with the metalheads? Come over here with the rest of us. Not into arena-rock or any of the "acceptable" genre's within rock? We're your compadres! Generally a bunch of misfits that did NOT fit in anywhere else. Your race, zip code or parents social status meant nothing here. That's what the "other" groups were for.

      The music was bare bones and played by those that intentionally went against convention. It wasn't about being flashy, destructive or violent. That all came later after the press released their "findings" to the sheeple. This took root and is currently what the masses (who are generally asses) think punk is really about. Do your own homework and you'll find what I'm saying is true.

    • Haha! "Punk culture"... that cracks me up.

      I think you're posing on the wrong site, dude. No one here really gives a rat's ass about "what it means to be a punk"...

    • Made interesting reading, especially as porn becomes mainstream the less demand for porn soundtracks to be put on porn.
