My favorite band since I learned they existed are the Supersuckers.

They put on a great show, and are always accommodating to fans. Love Eddie Spaghetti's style.

And speaking of finding newer music that isn't shitty, and going with muz's taste for acoustic; how about some BlueGrass from Iron Horse. Yes, it's not really newer music as it's covers, but I love what how they interpret the music.

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZYgsMXHY_w


They do a lot of Metallica covers too, but I like their take on Modest Mouse (not a huge fan of Modest Mouse outside of Iron Horse's interpretation).

And finally a little Me First to brighten your day.

@bjl - I had a friend way back who would have everyone sit down at the show and start playing some slow, acoustic style guitar with some light vocals. It was all a ploy to build up energy so that when they opened up and went full blast, everyone had to jump up quickly to mosh or be trampled.

@ekster - Modern Man is an excellent song. So is I Want to Conquer the World. Another upbeat one that I always enjoyed was Only Entertainment.

If we're going to the classics, might as well try and make it punk as well.

They say when you're learning to play guitar, you only get as good as what you listen to. I guess that's why after playing for almost twenty years, this is about as good as I ever got.

S'ok. I had a dubbed tape full of their songs.

That brings up another point. RBF, Slackers, Pietasters, Toasters, Prince Buster, Skatalites, Mephiskaphelis (sp lazy), SkaVoovie, DHC, Buck O Nine, Oceans 11, Save Ferris, etc....... All dubbed tapes from a friend. I owned nothing but stock in blank tapes back then. Good memorex ones too. Had to determine the length of tape and quality (metal tapes, baby!).

Totally forgot about the amount of those I had vs "bought" tapes back in the day. The original piracy.... Had 2 12" Terminators in the trunk. Car rattled like shit. Had 2 6x9 Pioneers in the back, and some kind of put together bullshit tweets in the front. All shoved into a 1987 4 speed VW fox. Amp was something I took hand me down from a friend. Think I paid $25 bucks, IIRC. The big red power chord was visible going under my floor mat. Wires half assedly hidden. Working on car stereos and then washing the cars was the shit back then. We had nothing better to do, and we didn't really know ppl with expensive shit to make us feel bad about our crap.

My pals from up north were huge Queers fans. I liked them, but never really owned anything. Still don't. What was funny is that they knew of a pals little no name band from over 100 miles south (my town), which I always thought was awesome. It was the first I realized the traveling potential of music.

And speaking of which, I can't play guitar. I got by with bass, but it never amounted to more than a couple of people, hanging out, playing smoke on the water and smells like teen spirit (bass really easy), or attempting higher ground (slap bass basics for the guitar mashers). Had piano training and percussion prior, but stopped all musical ventures once I discovered laziness and video games.

I'm spamming the supersuckers, because I can. This one is totally NSFW, but it's one of their most famous.

I'm the jack of all trades, master of none. I play guitar okay, bass pretty well, and drums and piano poorly. Since some of this is punk, I will declare this on-topic

My guitar work - Covers:
»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···lack.mp3

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···orld.mp3 - The Queers - Fuck the world - man I hate that amp setting. Sounds really good live, there's some really weird tremolo that comes through recording when recording straight out.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···boat.mp3 - added a new bass line and guitars, and, um, vocals? I firmly believe this is an improvement even with the screwups.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/audi···phis.mp3 - Norma Jean - Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste - This was my "audition" for a band that was getting started on Craigslist to be their bass player. They liked the sound, but I guess it was weird with a 29 year old trying to get in a band with a bunch of 17 year old drop-outs so it never went anywhere.

Originals:
»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···vast.mp3 - I was screwing around on the piano and found a hook I liked so I started recording and making crap up on the fly. I was also having problems with Avast antivirus, so that became the name of hte song.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···tion.mp3 - yock See Profile used the phrase "Accessing Voodoo Witchery for additional amplification" in a post and it inspired me to sit down and write a song just so I could use that as the title. Two weeks later, I realized it was totally a rip off of Ghoti Hook. :\

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/audi···etal.mp3 - Unicorns are metal too. Possibly my favorite song title. Also still a work in progress.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···mark.mp3 - meh, it's kind of blues?

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···beta.mp3 - another make it up as I went

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/sounds/rwk.mp3 - I still love this one. I need to add the original drums back in and re-record

Topic has been destroyed via genre pretty well already. It is open season at this point. Taking comments below way too literally.

My guitar work - Covers:
»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···lack.mp3
First slow chord made me think Green Grass and High Tides by the Outlaws. I thought I'd never forgive you for not coming through, but some midget in a school boy outfit beat me until I changed my mind. I also may be drinking beer. So in short, nice.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···orld.mp3 - The Queers - Fuck the world - man I hate that amp setting. Sounds really good live, there's some really weird tremolo that comes through recording when recording straight out.
Sounded fine to me. When listening to a recording of someone outside studio, your ears automatically adjust. Sometimes.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···boat.mp3 - added a new bass line and guitars, and, um, vocals? I firmly believe this is an improvement even with the screwups.
I am in permagrin over you mixing with this.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/audi···phis.mp3 - Norma Jean - Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste - This was my "audition" for a band that was getting started on Craigslist to be their bass player. They liked the sound, but I guess it was weird with a 29 year old trying to get in a band with a bunch of 17 year old drop-outs so it never went anywhere.
I'm not into the sound myself based on the cover, but you should not be selling yourself short. You have more talent than most people who claim ability at this.

Originals:
»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···vast.mp3 - I was screwing around on the piano and found a hook I liked so I started recording and making crap up on the fly. I was also having problems with Avast antivirus, so that became the name of hte song.
It's not a bad hook. That's how most songs of the genre we've been focusing on start; and end. I liked it.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···tion.mp3 - yock See Profile used the phrase "Accessing Voodoo Witchery for additional amplification" in a post and it inspired me to sit down and write a song just so I could use that as the title. Two weeks later, I realized it was totally a rip off of Ghoti Hook. :\
I always wondered how sucky it would be to come up with something you love, and then realize that it sounded similar to another song. Vanilla Ice had the blessing of ignorance, but now all musicians are so lucy.

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pab9IhCuBDA


Really, it's not that similar. And if I'm picking the incorrect comparison, then I blame the fact that I'm deaf (I'm not deaf).


»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/audi···etal.mp3 - Unicorns are metal too. Possibly my favorite song title. Also still a work in progress.
Parts of it sounded a bit like Mega Man 2, which fits with the metal part. Just in the beginning, though. The rest was more anthem'ish. I liked it for it's foundation aspects.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···mark.mp3 - meh, it's kind of blues?
Has a bluesy beginning, then transitions. Nice short riff.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/soun···beta.mp3 - another make it up as I went
Has an out on the plains type of feel to it. Cowboyish? I like it, personally.

»www.protusmose.com/tehmedia/sounds/rwk.mp3 - I still love this one. I need to add the original drums back in and re-record
The changes seem a bit off, but I think that's the rhythm you were going for. The solo piece is pretty high pitched, but overall I like the sound.

Man this thread really delivers... I've been watching videos all morning.

I gotta admit the hardest I ever moshed was at Murphys show. The play this area at least 5-10 times a year, often free at fairs and random festivals. I have beaten the shit out of myself and others at their shows.

Love it, love raw power and decadence.

Yeah.. we grew up.. Yea, your little Skate bands were cute, and I have a stack of NOFX CDs which I'll never listen to again, although I respect them for their anti-big-label thing. You see, your skate bands abandoned the anti-establishment, and started taking political sides, and became very boring in their view. Clash: "Know your rights" - anti-establishment.. Green Day: "Holiday".. taking sides. Skate away, I don't want your politics in my music.. NOFX, far worse.. not interested.

Pained when offspring did it, but I can give them one cry of angst, as their music has matured.. The skate kids hate everything since "Ignition", i find each a bit better and more creative. Same with the newest social D... it's actually fairly rich.

P.S. Chlen.. Love DKM.

And get, again, get off my lawn.

It's just a generational thing. We were full of idealism too, and our little skate bands encompassed it. Back then, I had an idea about politics, but only in the sense that if something seemed wrong, regardless of the deeper workings of it, I was against it. Ignorant side taking is the purest form of innocent choice, and maybe it's the morally correct choice, if not the sustainable one. I agree with Churchill; If you are 20 and not a liberal you have no heart, if you are 30 and not a conservative you have no brain.

In short, your anti-establishment was just a different way of expressing your idealism than the more specific lyrics in our gens music. I can see the appeal of something that is more vague in order to appeal to a larger audience base, and for a longer time; but I can still listen to my old music for the sound, even if I no longer completely agree with the message.

Totally agree that NOFX kicked ass sticking with their message against the pig ass music industry, though.

Turning into an interesting discussion point.

I don't think it's a generational thing. As much as I would like to the baby boomers invented angst, we didn't. it's been there through the history of music.

The post BBs (the 80s kids), weren't satisfied with what was there, so they reinvented it, and made it their own.. their recent history was disco, and stadium rock, not much to go on other than a few gems. The reinvention later moved to grunge and hard core rap (90s) as there was no central ground with the majority of stuff in the 80s..

But idealism, the angst, the political slants have always been there.
