Reposting Brian Lew: @umlaut If you had told me in 1984 these would exist of course I would not have believed you. I would also have said “WHAT’S A DVD??” The @murderinthefrontrow Movie on DVD and other channels is officially out tomorrow. The DVD has 92 minutes of exclusive bonus materials (the movie itself is 92 minutes) and available for a limited time. In the States, the download and streaming will be available on: iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Video Direct, Vimeo, Tubi TV, and UNCORKED (XBOX). Worldwide check iTunes and Amazon Video Direct. What a crazy metal journey it’s been with @haraldoimoen, @bazillionpoints, and @dubinator64 over the past 8 years. ALSO, the release date is meant to honor Paul Baloff’s birthday on the 25th.

Angelripper! Great to know Sodom keeps METALION close at reach in their bunker. Do you? Danke Onkel Tom. 💣 Repost @sodom_band_official #tbt to better times: Tom taking a break during rehearsal some weeks ago and reminiscing about the ‘80s while browsing the infamous Slayer Mag Diaries. Next to some old interviews the book contains some snapshots taken by Metalion together with Mayhem during a trip to the „Ruhrpott“.

"From a historical point of view it is a real gem, but also highly recommended for any lover of photography, because Pat's work is amazing." Gracias @stafmagazine ! 🇪🇸 “Las (más de 200) fotografías de Pat Blashill nos hacen viajar a la década de los 80 del pasado siglo XX para rememorar los comienzos del punk y la música underground en Texas, con instantáneas de grupos legendarios como los Butthole Surfers, The Dicks, The Offenders, Glass Eye, Daniel Johnston, Poison 13, Scratch Acid, The Big Boys… todo ello acompañado con interesantísimos textos de artistas como Richard Linklater (School of Rock), el cantante David Yow (Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid) y la batería Teresa Taylor (Butthole Surfers). Y acompañado además de fotografías de artistas que giraban en Texas, con magnificas instantáneas de Sonic Youth, Devo, Samhain, Soul Asylym, The Replacements, The Dead Kennedys… Desde un punto de vista histórico es una auténtica joya, pero es que además se trata de un libro muy, pero que muy recomendable para cualquier amante de la fotografía, porque el trabajo de Pat es una pasada." 🤎📚 #texasisthereason #patblashill #buttholesurfers #thedicks #bigboys #theoffenders #scratchacid #poison13 #texaspunk #punk #musicbook #hardcoremusic #hxc #sonicyouth #devo #samhain #soulasylum #thereplacements

Today in 1980 was effective launch day for British metal—the release of both Judas Priest's commanding British Steel and Iron Maiden's magnificent debut. The forces had gathered, the machines were streamlined, everything was in place, and on April 14 the cannons were fired. This same stretch of a few months brought debut albums from Def Leppard, Diamond Head, Tygers, and Angel Witch, plus Motörhead's Ace of Spades and Saxon's Wheels of Steel. Not to mention Sabbath's first Dio record, Ozzy's Blizzard of Ozz debut, and AC/DC's return with Back in Black. Hail to goddam England, already. And happy forty years of true-blue heavy metal denim and leather. ⚒🇬🇧🧟‍♀️ #ironmaiden #judaspriest #britishsteel #defleppard #onthroughthenight #diamondhead #tygersofpantang #angelwitch #heavenandhell #blacksabbath #blizzardofozz #randyrhoads #saxon #wheelsofsteel #britishheavymetal #backinblack #ukhm #kerrang #nwobhm #soundofthebeast

Last night in 1985, Metallica and Slayer met for the first time. The two bands were already rivals, so the vibe backstage at the Kabuki Theater in SF was charged. Harald Oimoen, already a friend of both bands, snapped a roll of photos, four pages of which appear in MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW: Shots From the Bay Area Thrash Metal Epicenter. ♨️murderinthefrontrow.com ‼️ #davelombardo #larsulrich #jeffhanneman #kerryking #brianslagel #metallica #slayer #ridethelightning #hellawaits #thrashmetal #bayareathrash #bayareathrashmetal #lathrash #metalphotos #metalphotography #metalphoto #murderinthefrontrow

New TEXAS IS THE REASON book interview w/Pat Blashill today on NoEcho.net : "The band more people should know about is the Dicks. They had it all—good politics, filthy yet touching lyrics, and an even dirtier sound. Both their live split album with the Big Boys and their debut, Kill from the Heart, are some of the most savage punk rock ever recorded. They were the epitome of Texas—ferocious, tender, and absolutely unafraid of anything." 🐎 #texasisthereason #patblashill #thebigboys #thedicks #buttholesurfers #rembrandtpussyhorse #poison13 #thehickoids #theoffenders #scratchacid #danieljohnston #glasseye #rokyerickson #austintx #austinpunk #sanantoniopunk #texaspunk #richdaddy #devo #samhain #hatethepolice #queercore #thereplacements #thedeadkennedys #richardlinklater #davidyow #teresanervosa #ashown #donnarich #ushardcore

Check that X! Bazillion Points cross-connection here b/t MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW and STRAIGHT EDGE. ❌ Note the sharpie X on the hand of Lars Ulrich age 19, photographed by Brian Lew with bandmates Dave Mustaine and James Hetfield right before playing Metallica's first-ever SF show at the Stone in 1982.
This practice by S.F. club promoters of marking "X"s on the hands of underage kids to allow them into shows is thee ground zero origin of thee most prominent signifier of the straight edge movement. As Ian MacKaye says in STRAIGHT EDGE: "When the Teen Idles went to California, there was a little bit of concern over whether we were going to be able to play the gigs because of our ages. We were blown away that Dirk Dirksen, who put on the shows at the Mabuhay Gardens [across the street from the Stone], had developed this method of letting underage people into the shows by putting X’s on the back of their hands. We went back to the clubs in Washington and really pushed doing this." 🔗 Make your own countercultural connections, fill in the bleeding blanks, and complete the punk and metal puzzle by hoarding all our books via bazillionpoints.com 📕📔📒

"I was an annoying mosquito buzzing around the Agent Orange camp. I was the guy sneaking into shows, carrying in gear and losing it, jumping onstage and grabbing the microphone and singing, and generally making mischief. Building mayhem was easy, because Mike Palm and Steve Soto from Agent Orange were not able to grab the mic away from me while they were playing! Snickers from the Simpletones had tried to convince me that I should be in a band, as did General Hospital, aka Rikk Agnew—but neither of them wanted to try to generate the lasso to corral this little mustang. Soto took a chance and asked me to try something out with him and Frank Agnew. We ended up adopting the name of a garage band in Petaluma, from a pen pal who gave me her blessing, and we dubbed the band the Adolescents." 🧨
