National Wrecking Company

cover

The National Wrecking Company gathered around singer songwriter, Lars Din in the early 90s in West Philly. The band featured Mike Watson on mandolin and electric guitar, Gordon Rice on bass, Cheshire Agusta (Stinking Lizaveta )  on drums, and Glendon Jones on fiddle. We played every Sunday for several years at Cafe Cairos, 40th & Baltimore Ave., Philly and Fridays at Sine Cafe in Manhattan. Performances often lasted until the wee hours if not all night and included many roving sit-in musicians. We loved and hated each other in equal measures. Describing music I’m involved with is a job I normally leave to others but I’ll make an exception. The National Wrecking Company created and clung for dear life to our own form of post Dylan urban swamp pop chaos. Lars wrote a good lyric and constructed some decent melodies we could throw our axes at.

X – Live Chestnut Cabaret 7-30-86

Exene Cervenka

X Live from the Cabaret in July 1986. I missed this show along with so many good shows that summer – should have stayed in Philly. Oh well I did eventually see X a few years later and they were still a great band to see live.

Kavune

Flyer JC Dobbs
Kavune was Roman Luba (Guitar, Organ, Vocals) / Marko Andryczyk (Guitar, Organ, Vocals) / Dave Skema (or Carlos Bravo) (Bass) / Christian Hayes (Drums)
I’ve collected 4 different recordings for this post:
1st up Live on Marina’s show on WKDU from 3/15/96
2nd Live from JC Dobbs opening for Mad Scene and Epic Soundtracks.
3rd the 2 song not.one.red.cent cassette and
4th their part of the Rock Bridge cd which is a split with Mācītājs On Acid

For a description I’m going to steal an article by Neil Gladstone (I assume from City Paper) It is a dark and breezy summer night around 4 am.
You’re driving in a pick-up truck somewhere in Ohio or maybe its Indiana already you’re not sure because the empty road you’re on has more convenience stores than highway signs. The tape you’re listening to is Kavune’s new ep, Sobaka. Your friend who recommended it sleeps in the passenger seat. The ticking of the hi-hat seems to fall in step with the steady pistons and the melody lines hum through the warm dashboard.Your eyes strain to stay in focus and you can feel adrenalin ebb and flow in your neck. The rhythm guitar in “Sat.”buzzes, chops and strums like roughshot Rolling Stones outtake. The voice is intimate and resigned. A raspy lead calls to mind the psychedelic, country riffs of the Byrds and Roky Erickson. “Shep Song” and “Venera” wash bleary memories and nightmares out of your head and into the rear view mirror. Kavune’s band members live in Philly and New York for most of the year, but often return to Ukraine, their parent’s homeland. That culture’s influence is undeniable. Kavune means “watermelon” in Ukrainian. The band often covers traditional folk songs and sings occasionally in the Eastern European language.

This was still when Carlos Bravo played bass for us. And he sings the first song while our studio producer Trevor Bajus plays guitar and I (Marko) play (!) sax for that song. On the last song, the ‘vkakuvstavtsi’ chorus (the ‘stepped in shit’ chorus) seems to feature Mark Halaway, among others.

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

Nightbreed

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.
