Philadelphia Punk Gigography 1977-1987

For a few years I was working on this Philly Punk gigography covering the years 1977-1987. I cut off at 1987 because the music diversified so much after that that I thought it would be too much plus, I moved in one direction while others moved in another direction even though all the music could be considered Punk in some form at least. I haven’t been able to finish it because of Covid and the library being closed for a while and also, I wasn’t able to pay for newspapers.com the last several years. Most of what I have listed is from old flyer, fanzines, websites and newspapers. I only did newspaper research for Hot Club and other venues up to summer 1978. So, there is two years of research needed between summer 1978 and 1980. And, then for Omni’s and Ripley’s in the early 1980s. I also added the pre-Punk stuff from Stooges, MC5, New York Dolls, Velvet Underground/Lou Reed, Patti Smith and a few choice others like Hawkwind with Lemmy and Roxy Music that I thought were good influences for Punk.

Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers – Kennel Club 08-10-1986

Pisa’s Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers live from the Kennel Club in 86.
CHEETAH CHROME MOTHERFUCKERS are quite different than any of the
European bands that have already made it to America. They don’t let their music fall into any easy categories. CCM’s discography of records and tapes is extensive in volume and variety. These guys express things musically the way they feel them without regard for the usual conventions-even those of hardcore. Sometimes’ the music borders on symphonic thrash, other times it slows down to the tortured screaming of a fly caught in a spider’s web.
maximum rock and roll #39

Thanks for the tape files & photos Brett Noise Addiction II and for the photos John
