The Gits!

This is some great old live footage of The Gits. I loved this band so much and saw them a ton live. To this day Mia's lyrics and voice put a tingle down my spine. But her murder was so tragic I also almost tear up when watching footage like this and listening to old Gits records...

The Barfeeders!

San Francisco punk band The Barfeeders played Seattle a few weeks ago. I saw these guys a couple times quite a while ago, I think both shows were at Gibson's downtown. They have a great blend of snotty and pop punk, are fairly goofy and a lot of fun live.

Stiff Little Fingers

Stiff Little Fingers weren't just one of the best punk bands of the '70s, they were one of the best bands to ever play punk rock. Their first two albums still rank among my top 25 records of all time.

Aspirin Feast video!

In 1987 I started dating this girl I met at the UW who had gone to highschool in the Tri-Cities. Through her I ended up meeting dudes that went to her school that were in punk bands, namely Christ on a Crutch and later Aspirin Feast, fronted by Mike Pitz. Mike and most of the guys from COAC had gone to Hanford Highschool. Aspirin Feast had about a 2-3 year lifespan and I'll give them a proper right up later when I rip some of their vinyl into MP3s. They played blistering hardcore punk and often had fairly crazy live shows. Tim from Aspirin Feast (who was later in Chicken) just sent me this link to some old video footage just added to YouTube. More should follow. This is Aspirin Feast live from 1989 at the Kennewick VFW Hall,Tri Cities, Washington:

Captured by Robots!

I can't believe I'd never seen Captured by Robots before live until a few weeks ago. Needless to say, it's one hell of a live show!
