Die Kreuzen Audio and Video from West Side Club Philadelphia
I wanted to get this up before the Philly Crosses show on Friday 10/14 -I will fill in the song titles later. If you are in Philly go see the Crosses on Friday at Beaumont Where?house
Not a reunion band!
The original frontman of DIE KREUZEN Dan Kubinski, with support from Dave LuckyLacquers (Guitar), Yossarian Scumdog (Bass) and Mike Olson (Drums), will be performing the first self titled Die Kreuzen LP front to back, ferociously, plus a few more Kreuzen extras and NEW MATERIAL!
Opening is: Population Zero https://populationzero.bandcamp.com
I always thought that The Mighty Die Kreuzen were Heavier than Black Sabbath & More Fierce than Minor Threat. When you were at one of their shows & they started to play, Your Soul was lifted Upward, Your Arms Raised & Your Whole Entire Body Swayed with the Intensity of a Tornado Swirling about & taking Whoever got in your Way with You into the Frenzied Pits of _______ .
When they played, it wasn’t a hardcore show, it wasn’t a rock concert, It was a Gathering of the DK Family to groove & support these Incredible Musicians, Friends & Brothers from the beer capital Milwaukee and we did gather. In Philadelphia, DC, NY, Atlantic City, Camden, You might think Deadheads were loyal but Die Kreuzen drew crowds who traveled thru whatever elements because we had to be there…
In July 1988 the band released Century Days & this song entitled Number Three was filmed live at J C Dobbs in Philadelphia. It was filmed & edited by the West Side Club. “From this view my thoughts are all so clear/ I’ll always be right here away from you” And now Number Three……– Lenny Crunch
Die Kreuzen from the Elk’s Lodge in Atlantic City. Starts off with their cover of the Halloween movie theme. Then they played a mix of short fast stuff from their first self titled LP and a bunch of longer songs from my favorite Die Kreuzen album October File.
I remember seeing them at the Kennel Club around this time but it might have been 1986. Earlier I posted the audio from a much later Die Kreuzen show from the Khyber. For all things Die Kreuzen go to: Counting Cracks
I believe this live tape is probably the last time I saw Die Kreuzen. The tape I had did not have a date on it so I’m not exactly sure when the show happened. Guessing by the tracks it is probably either right before or after the album Cement came out. (It was February 08, 1992 – Thanks Marc) At one time I had a video tape of Die Kreuzen from JC Dobbs but I loaned it to someone and never got it back. Which sucks because it was a great show (If I ever find it I’ll put it up). Here are a couple of other sites that have some more Die Kreuzen goodies: Counting Cracks & Symphony of Ghosts
UPDATE The song I didn’t know the title which is on the track with Gone Away is Continuous Dogs which was only ever studio recorded for a session they did in Seattle for a radio show. Thanks to Counting Cracks for the info.
