ANTiSEEN is celebrating their 25th year of "Destructo Rock" by touring with the most unlikely partner, old dirty rapper Blowfly. These photos are of their set at the Funhouse ten days ago. I have to say, I've never been that big of an Antiseen fan, they were always a little too rock for me and seemed to buy into their own shtick of being Southern badass rockers a bit too much. Unlike say, Nashville Pussy and the singer's preceding band 9 Lb. Hammer, both bands definitely played up the humorous angle in what they were doing. Regardless, I do have a couple Antiseen records and have been known to rock out to them on occasion. 1993's "Eat More Possum" in particular, which is pretty balls to the wall and has a great band introduction by The Cosmic Commander of Wrestling. I realized when walking by the merch table (AKA Funhouse's pool table) that Antiseen have an insane number of releases, so I'll refer you to their website for more info on the band and their full discography: antiseen.com. Singer Jeff Clayton is known for cutting himself open and bleeding a lot live, sadly their was no blood when I saw them, they had a shorter time slot and breezed through most of their songs.
