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.

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.

No 2 Nippy

No 2 Nippy
No 2 Nippy’s 7 inch Delicious from 1994. Mid 90’s Philly band that that I saw many times including when they opened up for Bikini Kill at a KDU band bash. The band was Kristin Hurst (drums), Jill Macdowell (guitars & vocals) & Tammy Bonn (Vocals & Bass). The side A song  One lil Dukie reminds me of one of my favorite bands of that time Babes in Toyland.  Tiny Thumbs is more of a noisy pop song with the 2nd song going back towards the style of the side A song.

A – One lil Dukie

Toni Farina took this photo. I think from the God Bullies show

Subtle, Like a brick through your window

I was good friends with the most of the members of Rotgut from before they started, which included 3 KDU DJs and 2 former roommates. I most have seen them at least a dozen or so times  and always had a good time. There is something about seeing bands that you are friends with that just makes it so much better.  It also doesn’t hurt that they played on the same bills will some great bands Alice Donut, God Bullies, Didjits, Blue, Immaculate Hearts just to name a few (see the flyers slideshow below)  I like Bill’s description of Rotgut being  of a cross between Angry Samoans and Black Flag. But judging by the varying descriptions in the  Rotgut Press Release you may have to make up your own mind on which bands to compare  them to. The Press release has lots of 7″ &  show reviews plus an FOE interview. The Original Lineup was Steve “Bobo McGullicuddy” Tiberi (Meister Squad, Rear Admiral) – Vocals, Bill “With Sno Peas” Rude (the Koosmans, Bad Ronald, Stinkbomben, Tons of Nuns, Rear Admiral) – Guitars/Vocals, Stan “Lo Mein” Kemp – Guitars/Vocals (Stinkbomben), Greg “Jim Beam Lobotomy” Licht – Bass/Vocals (Futile Effort, Pulaski Skyway Kids, The Menegels), “sweat & Sour” Frank Giraffe – Drums (Stinkbomben) . Before Greg, Ken “Milton Bradley” Hinchey was on bass. Later, Frank Campbell (Electric Love Muffin, Cave Canem) replaced Frank on Drums. Dan Mys replaced Stan Kemp on Guitar.
They released on 7″ called Peace Love and Sammy and were on the Rave Records comp Don’t Lick the Walls. Those songs as well as live on WFMU and other tracks from all the different lineups are collected here. (see the key below the collection for band and source info)  Thanks for the files, flyers etc  Bill

Epic Soundtracks Live JC Dobbs

epic soundtracks

Epic Soundtracks was the stage name of the British musician Kevin Paul Godfrey Epic and his brother Niki Sudden (Adrian Nicholas Godfrey) were part of the Swell Maps with Epic playing drums and piano, and “Sudden” on guitar and vocals. After the Swell Mpas broke up Epic played drums for Crime & the City Solution and These Immortal Souls. In 1991, he started his own songwriting career as well as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, he released three solo records. He dies of unknown caused in 6 November 1997. I only recorded 4 songs (I’m not sure why)
Updated info (thanks to Mark) this was from a show May 31st 1995 with Mad Scene and Philly band Kavune opening for him.

crankcase. machine 1 was 1992 – 1995.
rob coye guitars and vocals
marc beck guitar and vocals
rick wright bass and vocals
chuck hanning drums drums and more drums
(the unit continued for a few years with Erwin Michelfelder (of Clabbers fronted Mezmorons’ replacing Marc)
Crankcase hits that spot between SY and fLIPS while sitting alongside Silkworm and Rodan.
the band initially started after a few jam sessions with the trio of Rob Coye, Marc Beck and a pre-Strapping Field Hands Jeff Werner. we had all been friends in our previous bands: Rob’s Grisly Fiction and Marc and Jeff’s Confusion Visits. incidentally, Marc and Jeff’s Vick Logic started at the same exact time

it was apparent that Rob and Marc could display some decent early 90s guitar histrionics, and we decided to become real by adding Grisly Fiction’s first drummer Chuck Hanning along with party companion Rick Wright
we played pretty actively in Philadelphia. notable billings were with US Maple and Babe the Blue Ox and one rousing show at Pi Lam’s Human BBQ with A Place to Bury Strangers
Rick remains active with Phila psych giants Flower Girl (please see their Bandcamp)
Rob Coye did a Grisly Fiction reunion project with gigs and continues playing noise with his Phantom Pilots project as well as instrumental duo Lame Cover Band (2008-forever) and a stints with Steven Cerio’s Small Girl Boils Water (early 2000’s) .
Marc remains retired from musical creativity after projects revelogic and (the) heroics
Chuck enjoys home brewing and jazz combo
please listen to this LOUD. play it LOUD . LOUD. LOUD!!!!
(Thanks for the files and the info -Marc)
