Waldos – Live JC Dobbs

Walter Lure – guitar/vocals, Joey Pinter – guitar, Tony Coiro – bass/vocals, Charlie Sox – drums

Walter Lure is most well known for being a member of Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers from 1975 to 1977, plus re-union shows in the years after. In 1978 and 1979 he played in The Blessed with future D Generation member Howie Pyro. That band released one single before Walter left. In 1980 he started a band named the Heroes with his brother Richie Lure on guitar, Billy Rath, from Heartbreakers, on bass and Billy Rogers, who backed Johnny Thunders in the 1980s and Dee Dee Ramone in the 1990s, on drums. The Heroes lasted until about 1983 but never released anything. It was during this time that Walter wrote many of the songs that would be played and recorded by the Waldos for their Rent Party CD released in 1994. It should be noted that in 1978 Walter recorded two songs, with friends, that he wrote for the Heartbreakers and these songs were released as a single in France under the band name The Heroes in 1983. Joey Pinter and Tony Coiro played in the New York Punk band The Knots who released one single in 1980. Tony Coiro also played bass backing up Johnny Thunders and in a couple Heartbreakers re-unions during the 1980s. Charlie Sox played in a new line up of The Blessed who released a 12″ep in 1985. In the early 1990s The Waldos played often in Philadelphia and always at J.C.Dobbs. The songs Glad To Be Alive was an unreleased Knots song. The version of Stand By Me was sung by Tony Coiro and wasn’t recorded in a studio before he died in 1995.

The Bats – JC Dobbs & Khyber Philadelphia

Bats

I wanted to get this up since the Bats are going to be playing at Johnny Brenda’s on June 4th. This is two Bats shows from the early 90’s one is from JC Dobbs and the other is from Khyber. I will try to look later and see if I can figure out what the dates were and more of the song titles. But for now I just wanted to get this up. If you are in Philly (Or one of the other cities on the flyer) GO SEE THEM.

Straitjacket Fits Live from JC Dobbs

Straitjacket FitsStraitjacket Fits sprang from the ashes of the DoubleHappys, a trio (named after a particularly loud brand of firecracker) that formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in the early ’80s. The band members were Shayne Carter, John Collie, David Wood and Andrew Brough. I believe this show is from JC Dobbs but I’m not sure exactly when. Most likely it is from 1993 since it has songs from all of their releases up through Blow. When the Straightjacket Fits broke up Shayne Carter formed Dimmer

Nirvana – JC Dobbs 10/1/91

NirvanaNirvana from JC Dobbs the last tour before they became big rock stars. Their third time at Dobbs from October 1st 1991 with the Melvins. I wish I had taped the Melvins but I unfortunately didn’t. It was a little weird to me that Nirvana became the big band at the time I was way more into Mudhoney and thought they would be huge. Shows what I know. But one of the things I respected Nirvana allot was paying homage to the bands that influenced them. Having Pat Smear join as a 2nd guitar player and wearing a Daniel Johnston shirt on mTV are just a few examples. At this show they did a good mix of Nevermind, Bleach and other stuff. According to a site dedicated to Nirvana shows it was reported Kurt was feeling well so that may be why they didn’t do an encore.
