Up On The Sun is the one I like.

I listened to about two minutes of that Descendants album and turned it off. I don't wanna sound like an arsehole but this sorta thing does nothing for me these days. I kinda feel it's just a bit adolescent and not in a good way.

I should try The Minutemen again. I do own Double Nickels.

and Belushi was a HUGE fan, almost obsessive. They're aggressive and a little goes a long way, but this is something that will probably always give me a wee kick:





Fucking crap.

Try Meat Puppets II and Mirage (a slightly more polished Up on the Sun).

The best Minutemen record is What Makes a Man...

The Belushi bio, along with Final Cut, Confederacy of Dunces and Helter Skelter was a mind fuck the summer I read it.

Yeah.



I always have to pick and choose from Double Nickels..., but some of it really is great.

This one is my favourite:




I'm going to give What Makes A Man..a go, then.

I grew up with it. San Jose, not L.A. though. They had better bands down there.

I don't listen to it much these days, and I was never totally sold on the faster-the-better, screaming slogans over two chords stuff. It was fine for frustrated kids, and it was a real scene that expressed something about how they were feeling.

The better stuff went off that track. Gun Club, Minutemen, Flipper--I still listen to that occasionally, and X I like, but have to admit Exene's voice is something to put up with, not enjoy. Their songs are good.

I don't much listen to the Damned or the Sex Pistols any more either, for that matter.

Minor Threat and Black Flag are horrible.


I genuinely don't get why this cadre of US bands has always been venerated by a number of BCBers, yet you don't see them going on about GBH, The Exploited or Menace. Why doesn't Gash go on about those - it's pretty much the same thing.

Gash is a romantic. The origin of these bands plays a big part, I dare say.

Oh man, I've just discovered this:



I know fuck-all about D Boon, but he always comes across as, well, as very much not a dickhead.

John, the thing is, what do you know fuck all about? 8-)

Seriously, the Minutemen were great. Get someone like zoomboogity to tell you stories. I'm pretty sure he lived with D. Boon for awhile.

Are you still in the Bay Area? I grew up on the Peninsula in Redwood City, went to San Jose State, lived in San Francisco for five or six years, moved back to the Peninsula, got married and have been in the East Bay for 25 or so years.

Man, it sure goes downhill after that.

In all seriousness, that's the Richard I remember.

Nope, I'm in a Boston suburb now.

I've lived in California off and on a lot, though--Berkeley, LA, San Francisco, Oakland. I love it!
