Bunnydrums reunion show from 2006 at World Cafe Live.
The summer of 2006, Frank Marr and I started to play live shows again with Marc Laurick (bass; 9 Fireman 9, Certain General, King Britt, Byard Lancaster), Howard Harrison (guitar; Martin Bisi) and Michael Mongiello (drums; Scareho). It was Marc Laurick that engineered the return of the band to play live again and we continued to do shows for about another ten years, until Marc’s untimely passing away. In that period, we shared the stage with the Bush Tetras, Certain General, Pure Hell, Richard Lloyd, Stan Ridgway, Note Killers and others. These shows were a lot of fun to play, at one-point Marc arranged to have the great avant-garde saxophonist, Byard Lancaster to sit in with us which was a trip. Greg Davis, Bunnydrums’ original bass player and Joe Ankenbrand (drums), unfortunately, were not available to participate in this reunion. – from the Last Day Deaf interview
Thanks to Flipo from the Excuses for the audio.
After a bunch of Philadelphia bands my friend Bill Rude (the Koosmans, Rotgut, Stinkbomben, Tons of Nuns, Rear Admiral) was in a band based out of NYC called Bad Ronald (along with other Tons of Nuns, Stinkbomben, Rear Admiral member Brian Sussman on bass) which was called “One of the greatest NYC bands that nobody knows but which everyone should know! – by Tony Autoharp Arena.
Recently they released an album that had not been released before as a benefit for Bob A. Lingus who had passed away.
“A year ago today our lives changed forever when we lost Bob. Giorgio and Brian had this pressed as a tribute to Bob, with all proceeds going to his children. Special thanks to Simona Prives for making the record look great and Deborah Suchman Zeolla for the great photos within, and Ellen Rosenholtz for taking these photos.”
“So here you go, 19 years after it was recorded. You can get this, plus this fabulous t-shirt, and in case you missed it the first time (apparently you did!) our two 7″s from the nineties right here at badronaldnyc.com
Please go check it out and if you can help out by buying some Bad Ronald music or shirts you won’t regret it.
I was working on putting up the Fabulous Fondas’ demo tape called eight original hits when I noticed it was already available on Bandcamp. But, I still wanted to add a post of them and just use the bandcamp links instead of the files I made. The Fab Fondas were Rocco Sacco (vocals) Bill Fergusson (lead & rhythm guitar) Brain McGillin (rhythm guitar & vocals) Pete McCoubrey (bass & vocals) & Todd Yoder (drums & vocals)
Thanks for the tape Jackie
Two demo tapes & a live on WKDU (11-22-89) set from late 80’s Philly band Orifice. In the late 80’s early 90’s lots of bands were moving from punk/hardcore into Industrial Noise ala Test Department & Einstürzende Neubauten. Philadelpiha had a some good exmaples of this in Orifice, King Carcass, Sink Manhatten, Nine Firemen Nine and I’m sure olther I can’t think of now. I made a video for I believe thier song the Burning Bus for a RTF class at Temple. I would love to put the video in this post but my partner on the project kept the only copy of it and I have never got a copy of it. The band is made of Bryan Willette (ex Love Battery (philly one not sub pop band that came later)) Grant Acker (Un), Pete Danz, Don Glass, and Frank Phobia (Anthrophobia)
Thanks for the tape files Frank & jackie
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...Email Me @
