10,000 crazy

I just recorded my 10,000th band. Off of the "Ha Last Week" comp tape "Wolfbane" became the 10,000th band I have on record/CD/tape/video.

Crow's Foot and Volcanic Slut

Attended the Assault Your Senses 6 in SRQ the other night. Reasonable size crowd with some excellent local talent. The bands were a little shy and didn't put the light on so the video is really just audio.

Crows Foot are from Pinellas County and played some of the most enjoyable crust I have heard live for a long time. I like them because of the thoughtful lyrics and DIY nature. Super nice kids that I hope are "in it for life". I have their demo tape and a split ep with Deserter.

Volcanic Slut spawn is the illigitimate sons of Bad Brains and Slayer and play hyper fast thrash with psychotic vocals. This is only part of the set these Tampa lads played.


Here's their demo:

The bands didn't want the lights on so the visual portion is pretty useless, so I have tried to upload just the audio.

The Amputees

A search for the band turns up little. There is a garage band of the same name outta Ohio, but this was a band from the Tampa, FL area. Tampa was the capitol of death metal, but these young lads decided to play punk ala '82 anarcho era. They even do a cover of Tube Disasters. Recently Allen of the band contacted me, as I had previously posted the audio of the band when they supported The Casualties and asked if I still had the video. I cannot upload from VCR to the computer so I re-filmed it. I think it came out ok. It's on

History of the video if you are interested. An ex-pat Brit used to put on shows at The State Theater (No Clubs Productions or something like that). There were some great shows, but I stopped going there when he f...d me over a damaged record I bought at his record shop. Anyhoo, when I arrived at this gig I locked my keys in the car and had to call for a locksmith. The cheap bastard that I am was also parked illegally in someone's vacant lot as I refused to pay for parking. While I waited for the locksmith I did not want to miss anything so I set up the video and left it recording. I had approached Endless Struggle about recording them and then sent a copy of the gig to them in Salt Lake City. So I never actually saw The Amputees play live, but do have the footage and now so do you.
