Here is a great description of the band stolen from Nice Popper fanzine (I think)- Kitschchao were thee best punk band in Philadelphia during the early nineties. They released one 7″ single on Compulsiv Records and have an unreleased album floating around the East Coast on CDr. Singer Tristan Egolf went on to write 3 well known novels. Members of Kitschchao ended up in the bands Woodland Fruits, More Fiends, Apollo Creed, Dagobah System and D.T.O..

For my part in 1992 I attempted an ill-fated / not anywhere near enough cash to move – move to San Francisco which later called a vacation with all my stuff. In those maybe 2 months I was gone Kitschchao had started getting everyone’s attention and were reinvigorating the philly scene with some much needed influx of punk and fun. They were a great band to see live and you never knew what was going to happen. If you don’t believe me hopefully the pictures and video below will give you a glimpse of it.

Doomed To Obscurity (DTO) @ the Tritone

This video was shot at the last Doomed To Obscurity (DTO) (of this lineup) show which was at the Tritone. To me DTO had a sound that was kind of a mix of old Hardcore and Garage rock. Probably because of the influences of all the past local bands the members were in. DTO is made up of Roger Bodine (Grisly Fiction, Underraga, Suktub, Heroics) – Bass  /  Chris Hunter (Red Paint People, Mothra) – Guitar  /  Jason Clouser (Kitschchao) – Guitar  /  Jason Ranck – drums  /  Billy Taz (Mama Volume, Angus Kahn) -Vocals (2005-present) / Tristan Egolf – Vocals (2002-2004) At the bottom of the videos I put a video for the song Better Days with animation by Judith Schaechter which is my favorite song from the lineup with Tristan. He was also the singer for Kitschchao and an author – sadly he died in 2005. Below the videos I made mp3’s of the audio from the video if you want them.
