I met Doug "Dick Thinker" Fedinik through the national Punk-List email list about 15 years ago. He was the bass player for this band in Pittsburgh called Submachine, who I'd never heard of. When he sent me their first 7" I was hooked, they were crass, funny, and had a great Poison Idea feel to them. Great old school punk and unashamed drunks. When they toured out to Seattle I hooked them up with Cameron for an all-ages house show at the Radio House and they rocked the joint. They played the Lake Union Pub later in the evening too... I remember them trying to score meth through bartender so they could get more fucked up at the end of the night. Doug later left the band and got married and became a dad, but the band continued on. They've put out a slew of great releases and I'm amazed they still are fairly underground and haven't gained the notoriety they deserve. You can hear them on their MySpace page.
Current line-up: Alex Peightel on vocals, Jeff Cherep and Rick Budway on guitar, Greg Mairs on drums, and Jay Nulph on bass.
