American Hardcore

The following is the video progression of what happens when I start watching a documentary about hardcore and end up just getting distracted and watching YouTube videos for a few hours:

Old Time Relijun is one of those bands that put on savage live shows. I have yet to see them live but they are definitely on my list of bands to see before I die or become a drone. Check it out:

So, I started out watching American Hardcore and this movie has some amazing live footage of Black Flag and Minor Threat...but they would only show little snippets of this footage so it was pretty much a big cock tease if you can dig after about an hour of watching the previous videos I ended up watching tons of Sonic Youth live footage and rediscovered my love for fucked up noise music.

Here they are in 1983 playing a show in Milan: ((WATCH ALL THE VIDEOS...YA DIG?))


0:40 Thurston Moore whips out a drum stick and starts drumming(!) his guitar...the result is mind blowing:

The entire concert in Milan is available on YouTube and I highly recomend watching it.

Here is Sonic Youth two years later in ' and sound quality is a bit better and you can really see how the band has progressed in just two years.

I'm sitting in my room right now polishing off a bottle of Andre. The economy is forcing me to buy cheap bulk, mind you. At Ralph's when you buy 6 bottles you get 10% off. In fact, last weekend when I bought said bottles of Andre I ran across several acquaintances while waiting in line to pay. It was kinda awkward when they saw that all I was purchasing was a tote bag full of booze ((they throw in a free tote bag as well as the 10% price slash)). Go me. I need to get out of this town.

numero dos

Marina's top 5 shows of 2008... cuz I only went to 5.

1. 88 Boadrums, Los Angeles
The Boredoms put on a free concert at the La Brea tar pits on 08.08.08 at 8:08 pm. It was a fucking crazy 88 minute-long drum orgy. It featured drummers from Hella, Entrance, Tussle and Mika Miko. Drum Orgy. Nike sponsored it and supposedly gave away free t-shirts. I didn't get one.

2. No Age, Mika Miko, Black Shirts at the art center.
Remember that random dude getting stoned in the middle of No Age playing? And Black Shirts singing "bossy".

3. ShellShag and King Brothers at Retrospect.
This was an okay show. Japanese bands never disappoint.

4. Avila Reggae Fest.
Drank tons of beer in the sun and danced and smoked joints with errrvrybody. I think it was Stephen Marley playing. Then we were all to drunk so we hung out in Avila until midnight then got a ride to Sunshine Donuts and proceeded to eat a million goddamn donuts.

5. EDC in Los Angeles.
This was a crazy fucked up rave at the USC football stadium with 65000 spectators. I don't know if this is technically a concert but Moby played and hes kinda cool in a high school band teacher sorta way. Spent the next day getting lost in Venice Beach, and riding home in a car full of gals with no more serotonin in their brains. I was way too overstimulated that weekend but it was epic.

6. No Bunny at Urban
The Be Neats played at one of my house parties a couple years ago and they've actually gotten better. No Bunny was ridiculous...having the speakers break and everyone leave and then getting the speakers to work again and chasing No Bunny outside to get them to come back.
Not to mention Buchon afterward...the kitchen at one point was so fucked up. I recall Ballroom Blitz being played and people wrestling throughout the recycling.

YEAYA, i went to 6 shows last year!))

Number one is in the right spot but the two through five aren't in any order. Im just that confusing.
