Toni Farina took this photo. I think from the God Bullies show

Subtle, Like a brick through your window

I was good friends with the most of the members of Rotgut from before they started, which included 3 KDU DJs and 2 former roommates. I most have seen them at least a dozen or so times  and always had a good time. There is something about seeing bands that you are friends with that just makes it so much better.  It also doesn’t hurt that they played on the same bills will some great bands Alice Donut, God Bullies, Didjits, Blue, Immaculate Hearts just to name a few (see the flyers slideshow below)  I like Bill’s description of Rotgut being  of a cross between Angry Samoans and Black Flag. But judging by the varying descriptions in the  Rotgut Press Release you may have to make up your own mind on which bands to compare  them to. The Press release has lots of 7″ &  show reviews plus an FOE interview. The Original Lineup was Steve “Bobo McGullicuddy” Tiberi (Meister Squad, Rear Admiral) – Vocals, Bill “With Sno Peas” Rude (the Koosmans, Bad Ronald, Stinkbomben, Tons of Nuns, Rear Admiral) – Guitars/Vocals, Stan “Lo Mein” Kemp – Guitars/Vocals (Stinkbomben), Greg “Jim Beam Lobotomy” Licht – Bass/Vocals (Futile Effort, Pulaski Skyway Kids, The Menegels), “sweat & Sour” Frank Giraffe – Drums (Stinkbomben) . Before Greg, Ken “Milton Bradley” Hinchey was on bass. Later, Frank Campbell (Electric Love Muffin, Cave Canem) replaced Frank on Drums. Dan Mys replaced Stan Kemp on Guitar.
They released on 7″ called Peace Love and Sammy and were on the Rave Records comp Don’t Lick the Walls. Those songs as well as live on WFMU and other tracks from all the different lineups are collected here. (see the key below the collection for band and source info)  Thanks for the files, flyers etc  Bill

Epic Soundtracks Live JC Dobbs

epic soundtracks

Epic Soundtracks was the stage name of the British musician Kevin Paul Godfrey Epic and his brother Niki Sudden (Adrian Nicholas Godfrey) were part of the Swell Maps with Epic playing drums and piano, and “Sudden” on guitar and vocals. After the Swell Mpas broke up Epic played drums for Crime & the City Solution and These Immortal Souls. In 1991, he started his own songwriting career as well as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, he released three solo records. He dies of unknown caused in 6 November 1997. I only recorded 4 songs (I’m not sure why)
Updated info (thanks to Mark) this was from a show May 31st 1995 with Mad Scene and Philly band Kavune opening for him.

crankcase. machine 1 was 1992 – 1995.
rob coye guitars and vocals
marc beck guitar and vocals
rick wright bass and vocals
chuck hanning drums drums and more drums
(the unit continued for a few years with Erwin Michelfelder (of Clabbers fronted Mezmorons’ replacing Marc)
Crankcase hits that spot between SY and fLIPS while sitting alongside Silkworm and Rodan.
the band initially started after a few jam sessions with the trio of Rob Coye, Marc Beck and a pre-Strapping Field Hands Jeff Werner. we had all been friends in our previous bands: Rob’s Grisly Fiction and Marc and Jeff’s Confusion Visits. incidentally, Marc and Jeff’s Vick Logic started at the same exact time

it was apparent that Rob and Marc could display some decent early 90s guitar histrionics, and we decided to become real by adding Grisly Fiction’s first drummer Chuck Hanning along with party companion Rick Wright
we played pretty actively in Philadelphia. notable billings were with US Maple and Babe the Blue Ox and one rousing show at Pi Lam’s Human BBQ with A Place to Bury Strangers
Rick remains active with Phila psych giants Flower Girl (please see their Bandcamp)
Rob Coye did a Grisly Fiction reunion project with gigs and continues playing noise with his Phantom Pilots project as well as instrumental duo Lame Cover Band (2008-forever) and a stints with Steven Cerio’s Small Girl Boils Water (early 2000’s) .
Marc remains retired from musical creativity after projects revelogic and (the) heroics
Chuck enjoys home brewing and jazz combo
please listen to this LOUD. play it LOUD . LOUD. LOUD!!!!

Go To Blazes


Philly by way of DC roadhouse rock’n’roll/country band Go To Blazes’ first 7 inch, The band on this 7 inch were: Bass – Christopher Horner, Drums – Keith Donnellan, Guitar, Steel Guitar – Thomas Heyman, Lead Vocals & Guitar – Edward Warren. Trouser Press describes them as “Philadelphia four-piece Go to Blazes specializes in roadhouse rock’n’roll — whiskey-kissed shuffles and sour blues and Stones-influenced stomps that have a way of making everyday sorrows seem heroic. Known drinking buddies of Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (producer of their recent recordings), Go to Blazes belongs to that loose confederation of roots rockers determined to preserve the rough edges of the music, the country twangs and beer-guzzling stomps.”

A – (And I’ll Be) Hating You
B – Casa Diablo
