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.
Crunch Productions show with the Dead Kennedys from Rutgers Camden on April 20, 1985. Another show from within a year of my moving to Philly but at least I got to see them later at Blue Horizon. What a great lineup this show had – opening for the Dk’s was Articles of Faith, COC, Decontrol & FOD. At the time the largest independent punk show in the area Rutgers put the total attendance at 3,100.
Really Huge THANKS to Lenny Crunch for letting me transfer this video and put it up.
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
