Size Queen

Size queen was a revolutionary Gay Punk Rock Band based in Philadelphia. It was Comprised of 4 Sisters. Vocalists And Guitarists Joe Ofalt (Dead Joe) & Ray Doskus (Gay Ray). On drums the Incomparable Sky Kilshlo (The Heathens, Strapping Field Hands, Informed Sources). And on bass Louis Cali the world’s queerest straight man.

In the early 90’s Size Queen brought so much fun to the east coast punk rock music scene. Their bouncy fast-paced punk rock beats, screeching vocals and fun playful banter lightened the darkness of their lyrical themes. Which often focused on loss, death, and the struggles of growing up gay in America.

Sadly Ray & Sky are no longer with us but their memories live on in the music of size queen. -from the Size Queen Youtube page

I’ve collected their 7 inch and YouTube videos of their Sour Puss tape and a Live on Jackie’s show on WKDU. For more videos check out the Size Queen’s YouTube page here

A Subtle Plague

A Subtle Plague moved to Philly for a while in the mid 80s from upstate New York before moving on to San Francisco. If I remember right the first time I meet them was at an Agitpop show probably at Dobbs. They had just moved here and soon after began playing all the clubs in Philly and very quickly became part of the scene. They had a very unique sound with world-wide influences that was unlike any other local bands at the time. They were defiantly one of my favorite bands to see live at that time. So, I’ve collected three live tapes all from Philly shows – the first two while they were living here and the third from when they returned in 1990. The first is a live tape they released from Bacchanal on October 21st 1987. The 2nd was a Live on WKDU (not sure of the date of this one – also Thanks Jackie & Diego for the tape) The third is from the Khyber on October 22, 1990. (Thanks Don for this one) As a bonus I’ve added a video about A Subtle Plague from Youtube and a couple of flyers, sticker and tape case images below.

Links to the bands releases – Amazon MP3 & Apple Music.

New music is available these days, spawned from the past members of A Subtle Plague under monikers The Durgas featuring Chris & Benji Simmersbach and The Cult Inside My Head with Pat Ryan and Magnus Fleischmann.

the Lucys – Live on WKDU October 1997

Jesse Jameson from the Lucys Live on Jackie’s WKDU show – October 1997
In early ’96, Jameson began recording songs as The Lucys, playing both guitar and drums. Guitarist Joe Kim (who played with Jameson in the group Pale) and bassist George Loving filled out the group. Still searching for the right sound, Jameson recorded a few songs playing all of the instruments himself. More recently he recruited onetime Moped member Bret Tobias to play drums and Joey Sweeney on bass. All three configurations can be heard on Anselmo. (City Paper)

Pink Slip Daddy – Live on WKDU

Long time Philly-area rockers Pink Slip Daddy, the brainchild of Mick Cancer, Sal Mineo’s Only Son, Barb Dwyer and Palmyra Delran, was formed in the late 1980s after its members had intersected in various combos, including Sic Kidz and Das Yahoos.

Originally intended as a solo project for Mick, it quickly morphed into a breathing reality, as for several decades the band has delivered wildly received live performances and a series of acclaimed recordings, including Rock Damage And Other Love Songs and the groundbreaking LSD ten-inch vinyl package.

Dead Girls in Tight Skirts – Live on WKDU

Again I have no info on this very Zappa influenced band – I remember the band name and vaguely think they were a west philly band but that’s it. This is a live on WKDU set I assume on Jackie’s show but I’m not even sure of that.
If anyone has more info on this band please send it to me. (Thanks)

Thanks for the tape Diego
