Swisher – Live on WKDU

Sara Weaver

Sara Weaver’s band Swisher Live on Marina’s show on WKDU from April 07, 1999 also including an interview with the band.
“Hey, this is pretty nifty girl pop with an edge and still enough sweets and hooks to attract your wimpier BELLE & SEBASTIAN-loving younger sibling. The vocals have an almost old KRISTIN HERSH-like quality with music that’s more UK fuzzpop than Boston art-shamble. Hell, its even got that twangy guitar thing to get your older college-rock sister jumping. Hell, this is fun for the whole hipster family! Find myself digging this despite myself. Wimpy and squeaky-clean, but the most fun I’ve had in a while.”
-Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll

Very sadly Sara died from cancer in 2002. For more info and it looks like you can still purchase Swisher’s 2 cds – Go to the Weave wbesite

More Fiends – Live on WKDUi

More Fiends

I am in the process of digitizing a bunch of live on WKDU tapes from Marina – she had a lot of bands on her radio show in the 90s and mostly they have been un-shared until now. To start off  here is More Fiends live on WKDU from February 16, 1999.
I believe this is the last lineup for More Fiends (?) with  Allen Fiend = bass, Elizabeth Fiend = side guitar, Bob Fiend = guitar (currently in the Pogos), Dave Fiend = drums (ex Kitschchao, Belligerent)

MightBreed flyer

Nightbreed consisted of Justin Kolb on bass, Todd Kinckener on guitar, Steve Faulkner on drums, John Walsh on vocals. The band were from Boyertown PA and existed for only around a year or so between 1992-1994. They organized and played a few shows at the Odd Fellows Hall in Boyertown as well as at fire halls around their hometown. In 1993 they recorded a 10-song tape at Cedric Rockgod’s Rippoff Studios which they sold on cassette at their shows. After the band split up Todd formed Generation 13, Steve joined Vomiting Leprechauns and then the Quartermanes, Justin Kolb joined Figurehead for a few years before moving to Austin Texas and can heard playing upright bass on the Jesse Dayton & Brennen Leigh “Holdin’ Our Own” CD from 2007, and sadly, John Walsh died in the mid-1990s.

Neurotic Boy Outsiders – Trocadero, Philadelphia 10-21-95

Neurotic Boy Outsiders

Neurotic Boy Outsiders was a supergroup founded in 1995, consisting of Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, and John Taylor of Duran Duran. This is a live tape from the Troc in October of 85 with that lineup and a few songs with Billy Idol singing. The first line-up featured Billy Idol and Steve Stevens (together with McKagan and Sorum), but they were soon replaced by Jones and Taylor. They later shortened the band name to Neurotic Outsiders.

SS Decontrol – Buff Hall, Camden 11-20-82

Buff Hall Flyer

Happy Belated Buff Hall Day (11-20) to all the people lucky enough to have been at that show. I saw lots of fb posts about the anniversary of that show and since I recently got these files (Thanks Brett) I wanted to get this up as soon as I could. So here they are- Boston’s SSD (Society System Decontrol) Live at the famously insane Buff Hall show in Camden. It was an amazing lineup – Minor Threat, SS Decontrol, Agnostic Front, along with Crib Death and F.O.D. from Philly. Added to all that it was F.O.D.’s first show ever. It was before my time in Philly and big of my list of shows I regret not being at. Scroll down for links to some great books with first hand stories from the show.
