Jean-Paul Sartre Experience – JC Dobbs 7/27/93

The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience, later renamed JPS Experience after a lawsuit by the estate of Jean-Paul Sartre, were part of the 2nd wave of New Zealand’s Flying Nun Records Bands. I first heard them through their song Flex which was on the I’m In Love with These Times compilation and video comp. It was unlike any of the other bands on that and really stood out. They had a wide variety of sounds over their 3 albums and many eps. Most (maybe all?) is collected in I Like Rain: The Story Of The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience
My tape has no information on it but I believe this show was at JC Dobbs – part of the Noisyland tour with The Bats and Straitjacket Fits on July 27, 1993.

Philadelphia Band Bunnydrums reunited for the Lee Paris/PCHA benefit show – Houston Hall, U of Penn 05/03/86. Bunnydrums grew out of two early punk bands from the late 70s scene in Philly – the Boneheads and The Autistics. The band was made up of singer/guitarist/saxophone player David Goerk, guitarist/bassist/trombone player Frank Marr, bassist/guitarist Greg Davis and drummer Joe Ankenbrand. The Bunnydrums explored many different phases of music resulting in their own unique sound. For a complete history check out the Last Day Deaf interview

9 Fireman 9


9Fireman9 were an industrial noise band from Philly in the early 90’s.  9F9 was Marc Laurick’s band.- Jon Wischmann (Sink Manhatten) played with them too and Steve (King Carcass) said he jammed with them a bit but never played a show with them. Steve remembered them opening for Pussy Galore at the Crypt in West Philly and Jon Spencer heckling them by yelling “Swans rip off” Marc heckled them back with “Sonic Youth rip off”
They released two other tapes IHSV & one just called 9 Fireman 9 which was recorded at a show 5-1-87 at the Philadelphia College Of Art. If anyone has these cassettes I’d love to add them to this post.

Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers – Kennel Club 08-10-1986

Pisa’s Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers live from the Kennel Club in 86.
CHEETAH CHROME MOTHERFUCKERS are quite different than any of the
European bands that have already made it to America. They don’t let their music fall into any easy categories. CCM’s discography of records and tapes is extensive in volume and variety. These guys express things musically the way they feel them without regard for the usual conventions-even those of hardcore. Sometimes’ the music borders on symphonic thrash, other times it slows down to the tortured screaming of a fly caught in a spider’s web.
maximum rock and roll #39

Crash Course in Science – Lee Paris Benefit 5/3/86

Philadelphia Band Crash Course in Science from the Lee Paris/PCHA benefit show – Houston Hall, U of Penn 05/03/96
The show was a benefit in honor of the recently passed DJ Lee Pairs and proceeds went to the Philadelphia Community Health Alternatives (PCHA) which was a health clinic that served the local lesbian and gay community in the 80’s.
Crash Course in Science are an American post-punk band. The band was formed in 1979 in Philadelphia by Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny. They avoided the sounds of conventional instrumentation by using toy instruments and kitchen appliances to augment distorted guitar, drums and synthesised beats.
For more information on Crash Course in Science – see this interview from the Key

Here are two bandcamp pages for a couple of their releases:
