For versatility in sound, including Punk a billy, and every other type of good punk rock, my favorite OC band is The U.S. Bombs, and the other Duane Peters side gigs like Die Hunns and Gunfight, each that have some punk-a-billy in them. And Cory Parks on bass, she is just delicious.
Mike Ness in particular you mean? He’s outspoken with a lot of opinions, and had a lot of problems in his life, but he’s also one of the original anti-nazis, and did a lot to help clean up the ugly nazi punk thing way back. He’s made mistakes but there’s a lot to appreciate about the guy. He was kicking out nazis even back in the '80s when I would see them live, and that really needed to happen at the time.
But he doesn’t shy away from either controversy or confrontation, so I could see people being rubbed the wrong way by him I guess, sure.
Yeah, I have had some run in’s with him, nothing major, or even personal, he was just an A hole, so I said F him and his band. It was more then one time, I can chalk up “one time” to having a bad day, or making a mistake, or many other things, and by all means, I am not perfect and i am sure there are many out that could say the same about me. I try not to live that way anymore, and try to respect everybody I come across and maybe he does too now, IDK, but there is plenty of music I like that I can get off on, so I don’t feel lacking by not listening to Social D.
There is no time limit to when Nazi’s need to be kicked out. Jello Biafra and many others were doing the same thing at the same time, even when paying for it thru physical violence. Many others thru the years have too, that I have witnessed, including Mark from Guttermouth, have done the same in the 90’s, with the same consequences.
So, yeah, Its good that he did that, but that is demonstrating NORMAL behavior in my eyes, not going above and beyond. And I am not trying to argue with you about it at all, I am just posting my take on it thru my views and experiences. everybody’s experiences, which create their views are different, and understandable.
I really love how the bass cuts thru in this song especially in the first part of the song. I love his tone too.
D.R.I. I’m The Liar
Edit: this is not part of our previous conversation about OC or So Cal punk at all.
D.R.I. is awesome. Texas punk - good too
And don’t get me wrong, I like most SoCal punk I have heard too. Just was saying that I really loved Social D.
Love the bass there too.
Totally respect that, and I was in no way trying to change your mind about them. only explaining why I never got into them.
Yeah totally understood, and I’ve never really met Ness myself beyond being up at the stage in the pit. Could totally see him being abrasive in other contexts.
More excellent Castlevania metal - this one’s in English, even
I had no idea Fuki spoke any. Not bad at all considering it’s not her first language. Apparently a tribute to an Brazilian composer.
New Unlucky Morpheus album is going to be solid.
Not really the kind of music I’m used to listening to, but that bass groove has been haunting me since I heard it on the radio this morning
Not sure about that Lenny Kravitz track but the bass line is good.
Here’s something my daughter asked me to learn
Same, and that bass tone is HUGE. About as HUGE as that Jazz bass is to that bass player.
Not enough camera time on her (as always ) but pretty sure “that bass player” is Gail Ann Dorsey
She’s pretty prolific, lots of session and live work for big names. Including 20 years as Bowie’s bassist, but a lot more than that.
Had to look her name up, when I saw a comment posted under the Lenny Krawitz song. And then, I found this
She even did a stint with Gang of Four
