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.

Trained Attack Dogs – Live @ Chaos Records

Trained Attack Dogs started in 1986 and released one 7 inch (Pizza EP), one track on the Discpan Hands Comp and a self released live tape (Lotsa Fun). You can listen to all of it by going to www.kenkramar.com The band included Keith Souder (vocals), Ken Kramar (guitar) and John Manhardt (bass) and various drummers plus David Thrower also played guitar with them in 1988 and 1989. The drummer on these videos from Chaos Records was Rich Hoak (later of Brutal Truth and currently TFD.) I’ve been told this was one of his first shows with them. I’m not sure what everyone in the band is doing currently but Keith is djing as DJ K.L.Diablo. They played a bunch of shows in the last few years but I’m not sure if they are still back together as of now. Below the videos there is audio files and a slide show of all the flyers I could find of Trained AttacK Dogs.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow for the beta tapes
