Old pics.

I found this old photo I took of CND punks marching back in 1981 or 1982. Also one of my Dad in his college days (c1960). He got caught by a rival university and they shaved his head.

VA - Orlando Didn't Always Suck

I had some evil virus infect my computer and its cost me lots of dough to fix it. I haven't figured out how to upload files easily. I was saving music to the computer using Musicmatch then extracting the file so it could be read by the uploading file sharers like Divshare and Rapidshare. The new system has Nero and I can't figure out how to extract the files. This meant I had to upload the 60 tracks to Divshare 5 at a time. I'm pretty pissed off right now.

Uproar -Practices and Live and Demo

Mackie and others get over to Nation on Fire for loads of great music including the recent link to the Uproar practices, live gigs. Also there is a brand new demo! I saved Gabe's site to my favourites, but forgot to refresh it. I thought he hadn't updated in months and now I find I have 3 months of rare demos and concerts to download. Fantastic site. How did he get all this? What a perfect collection.

Blogs of the Week - Italian, Peruvian, Finnish is a very interesting site despite being in Italian and me not being able to understand most of what is written. I can, however, enjoy seeing the many trips the band makes to different countries and the people they meet. The site also highlights good books out there and shares lots of MP3, including some older Italian bands.

The other night I went to another gig at Sound Idea. Lower Class Brats headlined and although I like their Street Punk music I was a little worried by what I had seen about their Clockwork Orange Image. There was no need for this cowardly custardness in me. They are a nice bunch of regular guys from Texas and put on a rocking fine show. I will upload the audio soon.

Opening for them were 99 Bottles from Sarasota. These kids have their hearts in the right place, but need to get tighter. I have no musical ability, but could see the geetar and bass were not gellin'.

The other out of town band were The Wednesday Night Heroes. I loved the wit of the singer Graeme and he put out an adrenaline fueled performance. You will see when you hear the set that they know their material. Stay tuned.

Two other sites I have just discovered and love everything on there are the Peruvian punk site . This has some ultra rare tapes and videos. Another now on my favourite links is, which is a Finnish site that has so many excellent links I think my computer is going to explode from all the downloads. When will I ever be able to listen to it all?
