sweet! all kinds of great shit to munch on, thanks!
There is epic Husker Du and Minutemen (as well of course as Black Flag, but thats been rigorously documented here before) footage on youtube, but I really wanted to focus on the more obscure and intangible. The Meat Puppets have been put here, just because there is barely anything of theirs on youtube from this era, so I figured I should snatch it. Also, you may notice, I focus almost exclusively on '84-'85 cuz in a way, I feel that was when the SST aesthetic was at full force. Oh yeah, make sure, if you havent already, to click on the link to see a glorious version of the Meat Puppets tearing through Up On The Sun, the embedding for which, has been, bizarrely disabled.The two bands I WISH I could have gotten on here are the October Faction, quite possibly the purest extension of the SST style at this time, and of course Wurm. No such luck in either case. Either way, the Tom Troccoli's Dog stuff is fantastic, anything by Nig Heist is of course invaluable, I was shocked to find the SWA footage, and who knew Id have so much to choose from in regards to Saint Vitus . DC# was tough to pin down, and Overkill was even tougher not least because of the not very good 80's speed metal band of the same name. I wish there was more Saccharine Trust live stuff seeing as, I think they were 1000 times on stage what they were on record, and Jow Baiza was one of the most impressive guitar players in that whole scene (which is saying something!). If you like the songs by Angst, youre in luck, because damn near their whole body of work can be found on youtube. Anyway, Tim, liek you said a whole lot to munch on, and for further studies, may I suggest the Blasting Concept 2 compilation. Anyway, thanks for digging in!
DC3, and, Joe Baiza
yeah, it seemed like maybe you were listening to BC in the car yesterday and did some further indepth work when you got home.
I wish I had one it that way! Actually, here's the order, I was looking for October Faction footage, came across Tom Trocccoli's Dog, and decided to make a post out of it. I didnt drag the BC comp into until the very end, which I wish I would have thought of it earlier, cuz it would have saved me ALOT of time. There was actually an earlier version of this post, because I had forgotten to put in Overkill, Angst, and Saccharine Trust, which is funny cuz they all ovvured to m at the very beginning of the idea!
