Awesome. The sweet light of recognition, leading future generations to a lesson in violence. 🪐 Repost: @murderinthefrontrow A copy of Murder In The Front Row the book is part of the permanent collection of the San Francisco History Center at the Main Library! According to the History Center's website:

“The Daniel E. Koshland San Francisco History Center contains a research collection of books, newspapers and magazines, photographs, maps, posters, archives and manuscript collections, and ephemera, documenting all aspects of San Francisco life and history. The Center is also the archives for the City and County of San Francisco.”

In other words, Murder is part of the OFFICIAL historical archive of San Francisco and a copy is housed alongside documents and books that date back to the 1800s! 🤯

When Dez Cadena ripped in Redd Kross, and they played gnarly Blue Cheer covers.

Photo by @jordans247365 from the awesome “We Got Power” book/zine. This is the show that ended in mayhem and resulted in the city shutting down the theatre.

Repost @fatalerection That time Van Halen dressed up as punks, jumped on stage at the Whiskey A Go-Go, and blasted though a few punksplotation numbers before getting kicked off. Apparently the photographer who took this had no idea who they were, and figured they were just some legitimate local punk act. The photo would go on to grace the back cover of the August 1977 issue of Slash::
.
.
"One night in early June 1977, punk rock fans at the legendary Whisky a Go-Go got a surprise. A trio of punk musicians, wearing ragged clothing and gag glasses, climbed onto the stage right after another punk act had finished playing. One raced behind the drums while another strapped on a guitar. The singer, sporting fingerless gloves and a destroyed pair of saddle shoes, grabbed the mic and announced in an affected brogue that they were a brand-new band, “The Enemas,” straight from Scotland. After he screamed a few insults at those gathered around the stage, the three lashed the audience with a couple of breakneck-paced punk songs. A few minutes later, though, their power was cut and Whisky staffers chased them from the stage.

While most in the Sunset Strip crowd either cheered or stood dumbfounded at what had just transpired, Joe Berman and a few other patrons wore knowing smiles. Berman says, “I just gotten into the punk rock scene. There was a hardcore punk rock show, and I remember these guys were being really obnoxious, like hassling the waitresses and messing with people. It was Ed Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and David Lee Roth totally undercover. They went onstage and said they were some punk band. They were just mocking the whole punk rock scene and nobody knew who they were. But I knew who they were. I knew what they were doing because I either saw them outside or in the dressing room getting all made up and just doing this. It was just a joke, and nobody even figured it out.” #atomicpunks #eddievanhalen #whiskyagogo

PARANOID was mostly written during a long hotel residency in Zurich over the winter between the recording and release of the Black Sabbath debut. In a way, it’s like a second first album, the product of a cold, hungry, fighting young band. Both albums went gold by 1971, audiences craved the ominous darkness of the debut and the straight talk of PARANOID. Sabbath went from rags to riches in 2-3 years. And 50 years later, the world needs to hear “War Pigs,” “Electric Funeral,” and “Hand of Doom more than ever. 🔮 #blacksabbath #sabbath #paranoid #warpigs #metalhistory #soundofthebeast

I don’t believe the band itself ever achieved anything close to it live, or had a presence about them in the scene to match the recording." 📗 Read more at blog.bazillionpoints.com, or better yet read ALL at nyhcbook.com 📸 Robb Nunzio photo by Gary Tse Tse Fly. 💥💥💥 #nyhc #nyhcfamily #newyorkhardcore #hardcore #punk #hardcorepunk #nyhcbook #tonyrettman #tommyvictor #prong #arthurgoogy #drewstone #queenspunk #queenshardcore #punkhistory #punkbook #punkbooks #antidote #thoushaltnotkill

Forty yrs ago today The Dead Kennedys released Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, and America was terrified, shocked, and outraged. 🍆🍅🥕 Except for Tesco Vee and DxSx, who plopped Jello Biafra onto the cover of TOUCH AND GO No. 10. 🚽 Wrote DxSx in 1980: "Alright, San Francisco's marvelously stated rebuttal to the Germs LP. 'Fresh Fruit' cleanly strips away those not-totally-unfounded notions of mine about these guys being just a bunch of heavy metal poseurs... This is one f**kin' great record... The Dead Kennedys reiterate the fact that, without a doubt, the West is the best. You can gather up alll the sh*t from Boston, New York, Toronto, Chicago, and, yea, even the squalid Detroit, and flush it down the commode and I wouldn't bat an eye." 🧷 Read TOUCH AND GO: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine '79–'83. 🧱 #deadkennedy #deadkennedys #thedeadkennedys #jellobiafra #tescovee #1980spunk #hardcorepunk #punkhistory #sfpunk #mabuhaygardens #americanhardcore #killthepoor #letslynchthelandlord #chemicalwarfare #californiauberalles #californiaüberalles #ikilllchildren #holidayincambodia #vivalasvegas #touchandgo
