On this fine x-mas eve of 2011 i give you one of my all time fave holiday classics. Pre-Monster Magnet, Dog Of Mystery, doing I Saw Mommy Kissing Satan's Claws. This is taken from the uber rare Island of Misfits Toys tape compilation from 1988, put out by Cool Beans Tapes. Cool Beans was run by John McBain who was the original guitar player for MM & DOM. Lead vocals are done by one of my all time fave rock dudes and all around swell guy Big Tim Cronin. Awesome.
Have a happy trÖÖGRyMMkVltt-0)))))™ holidaze!

Another cool reader submission. A super fun little punky rock & roll romp!
from your pal Nazz Nomad at Bleedin Out. aka rico vanian.
My band Caterwaul Of Sound just released our first album "Stabby Road". It's sorta punk sorta proto punk. Hoping you'll include it on your next blog posting '
you can download it at http://www.caterwaulofsound.com/ (free!)
CATERWAUL OF SOUND’S new elpee “STABBY ROAD” will make the blind see, the deaf hear and the dead walk the Earth (or something).
Their new album “Stabby Road” (available for free download on iTunes/Amazon and on the band’s website www.caterwaulofsound.com), on April 15; offers 10 slabs of brain dampening gonzo garage rawk.
The band got its start as a labor of lust. Five friends in NYC, with the sole intent of hanging out and blasting out jams of their favorite groups, found some rehearsal space, got a lot of intoxicants and started to make some righteous noise. “All we wanted to do was get hammered and play tunes that we all loved until one of us passed out” testifies bass player Rico Vanian. Starting with the basics (The Stooges, Ramones, MC5, Replacements, AC/DC, etc), the band honed their alleged “skills” and destroyed many monitors and even more brain cells.
Eventually, the pure rock energy could not be harnessed; and the guys honed their unique toonage into... well, a Caterwaul Of Sound! Their first single “(Love Theme to) Kids Go To The Woods, Kids Get Dead” was featured in the cult classic horror film of the same name. Though they were not nominated for an Academy Award for best original song, Caterwaul Of Sound garnered many accolades, as the song has become an underground hit.
Available to play your town, be it club, Bar Mitzvah or ritual sacrifice; Caterwaul Of Sound is guaranteed to rock the roof off your scene.
Caterwaul Of Sound is:
Vox: That Guy Drumz: J-Lo Lead Guitar: Professor Damage Rhythm Guitar: CreepyMo Bass Guitar: Rico Vanian

Occasional i get some mail from people asking to post their demo. Here is one that i liked.
Demo Tapes Blog,
I like your blog, and I thought I'd send you this, though I really think it's not 100% fitting, as it's more art damaged than anything else. well, here's the full story... In 1992 some friends and I formed a band, SHROUD, for one show. It was to be completely improvised - no rehearsals - and the music turned out to be a weird doom-punk-jazz with a twisted vibe. We played said show, and were asked to open for Unsane a few weeks later, as well as record. We decided to liquidate the band immediately after the studio. The recording produced the limited (500 copies) cassette "Suicide Mission" in 1993. I understand that the sound here isn't for everyone, but I though you might get a kick (negative or positive) from this release.

A great live demo tape from 1986 by School Of Violence. This is right around the time Social Decay played w/ them at CBGB.
Here is a great histoty of S.O.V. - Stolen from their myspace page:
SCHOOL OF VIOLENCE were formed in 1983 in NYC by guitarist Stegmon Von Heintz. Matt Melnick (now from Disassociate), whom Steg had known since 1979, was their original bassist, Corey Clark (later from Warrior Soul) their first drummer. Corey was replaced by Kerry Riley, who drew S.O.V.'s original artwork, and contributed to their earliest songs. By 1984 they had enlisted bassist Rick Stone, drummer Willy and vocalist Paul Toxic, Jr. Paul wrote many of S.O.V.'s first songs, but was later kicked out of the band, and replaced with gravel voiced Ohio native Brian Childers, formerly of San Francisco based BOMB. Brian recorded two demos sith S.O.V., one a live "Off The Board" tape recorded at CBGB in 1986, the second a studio demo engineered by Don Fury. After a gig at The Ritz in NYC, Chris Williamson almost managed SOV, as did the manager from DRI. S.O.V. were courted and signed for a seven album record deal by Death Records, but midway through negotiating the appearance of their track "Religion" on the Complete Death II compilation, Brian left S.O.V., later to form CRAWLPAPPY, a band who in their short, illustrious career included ex members of bands as diverse as PRONG and ALICE DONUT. Brian's absence from S.O.V. as Complete Death II's release neared, and Steg's interstitial duty as front man, are why Steg is credited with vocals on this comp, when it is Brian who is featured. Bassist Rick Stone had also left early on in negotiations with Death Records, and, against his own better judgment, Steg brought in vocalist Karl Agell, formerly from Connecticut based SEIZURE, who appears on S.O.V.'s first and only album, "We, the People...?" The album received scant distribution, and the band little tour support. Rick Stone was briefly replaced by a stand in bassisd, George, who got hit by a cab early in his tenure. S.O.V. was set to tour in support of the album, so it was time to summon Scott Helland, one half of the musical tag team behind Massachussetts based OUTPATIENTS, who learned their set in all of two weeks. On returning from the tour, Scott Helland was joined by brother Vis, bringing S.O.V up to a 5 piece. Karl Agell then left S.O.V. to join CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, and appeared on their album "Blind", and in their video "Vote With a Bullet", before forming his current band, LEADFOOT. Reed from COC played drums after Karl left when Mark missed a gig. Brian was also up for COC, whom Steg had reccommended over Karl. Nobby from Broken Bones tried out to fill Karl's position on vocals, but Steg found it necessary to resume pulling double duty as frontman. Soon Mark left S.O.V. to join WARRIOR SOUL, bringing the band's entire history full circle. Ron Swenson, former manager of the Plasmatics, managed SOV towards the end of their career, but without Mark on drums, S.O.V. disbanded in 1990. PLEASE NOTE: Drummer Mark S. Evans is now deceased. After his time in WARRIOR SOUL, Mark returned to his native England , and was out one night, when two men and a woman stole his leather jacket. Mark went after them. The trio attacked Mark, strangled him to death, and set his body on fire. Brian Childers died in 2007 from alcohol poisoning. Stegmon Von Heintz went on to form PSYCHO 69, and later, briefly, had a band with Uncle Al from Murphy’s Law, and Steg's son on drums, called SENILE, and another, called FAT NANCY. He now builds custom motorcycles for Felony Flyers, after a successful run with his own Kill City Choppers. And Rick Stone? Who can say?

Not sure what ever happened to these guys but they were a lot of fun. Often lumped in the "Stoner Rock" category i hear more Fudge Tunnel and Killdozer than Fu Manchu or Monster Magnet and more noise and aggression than laid back weed vibes.

a very strange and DIY "slash" outsider compilation tape from 1986... I lost the track list to this a million years ago or maybe i never had it because as the tape ends you you can hear a one Jerry Lehan the 3rd giving out info for more tapes and starts to reel off band names and then the tape cuts off so you can never hear who the bands were..... i've searched high and low for ANY info on this tape and can find NOTHING.... The only thing i could find was that Stony Brook University Library has a copy in the Turmoil Radio Collection Archive..... I sent an email and heard nothing back. I highly doubt the adress that Jerry Lehan III gives at the end of the tape is still relevant...... Does anyone have any info on this very cool/strange/odd and awesome freakout of a DIY comp....??? I'd love to know the deal. I think i traded tapes with Jerry Lehan back in the day but can't remember..... There are a few punky type tunes but for the most part these are weird keyboard driven songs of an odd & unknown nature to my ear, but a few of these tunes a really like. I just numbered the track on each side. MAYBE someone will google this shit and know something about it.....

I own this but THE WIZARD over @ TERMINAL ESCAPE has already done the work on this, downloading both sides already so head over his way to grab this thing.

IMHO Full Speed Ahead were one of the best of the newer hardcore bands. That is not to say that these guys were new school because they weren't. Guitarist Mike Schweigert is an old NJHC guy from the mid/late 80's and was in a ton of bands. And bass player Will was in NJ Noise makers Codger among others. Drummer Pete used to hook me up w/ drinks @ the local bar and is kinda funny and chubby. These guys keep it OLD SCHOOL on this tape. Nothing crossover or metal about it. This is was Hardcore SHOULD sound like!!! If you close your eyes its like 1985 all over again!

1993 NJHC demo by Time's Up. A couple of these guys and a few friends jumped me at a Dead Guy show in Jersey once. I deserved it. I threw a bottle @ another kid and i took my lumps for it. No hard feelings. By 1993 hardcore had changed so much for me too really care too much. This is not my hardcore, but it has its place.
Not sure of all the members on this tape because none are listed and this is before any "official" releases but this is the previous band of Chris and John from Burnt by the Sun. Another GREAT NJ band.

Static Season were:
Jay Smetana - Drums
Ken Cruz - Guitar
Mike Ortiz - Bass, Vocals
Recorded April 1992 at: Stardust Studios, Upper Montclair, NJ

I've had some people ask me for this one. Some pre Vision Hardcore. Neurotic Impulse spawned Vision.
Anybody that knows anything about Jersey Hardcore knows the name Vision right? One of the longest running positive "youth crew" hardcore bands. Starting somewhere around 1987. Well this is the origins of Vision, Neurotic Impulse from 1986. Not sure how many of these are floating about but i would guess not too many.
There is a very well written and informative bio written on Vision over at: I Scream Records. Its way better than anything i could come up with even though i was around from the beginning i can't remember much of those old days. All i have are these old demo tapes, some flyers and old pics to help sort out the peices. I know these guys as Neurotic Impluse played a show in my old basement. We had plenty of good ones down there in that hole. I know i have pictures somewhere i will have to dig up. In the meantime, enjoy this awesome little peice of NJHC history.
I wonder if these guys have ever had a beer yet??? Damn Straight!
I got off my lazy ass and found a picture of N.I. playing in my basement.

For the 4th of July i give you some American Skin music.
Before they were known as just The Uprise, they were Suburban Uprise. I lost the track list to this tape years ago but i know they start out with Skin Head March... I'm pretty sure this is live at City Gardens in Trenbton NJ but i can't be 100% sure. But that was The Uprise's stomping ground. There is a bunch of shit written about these guys being all WP but i don't know nothing about that. When we hung out with them we ALL hung out, blacks, whites, browns. So maybe that shit happened but it happened when we weren't around.
If anyone can help with the track list that would rule. I know what a few are because they call them out during the set. But Most i have no idea. Here is what i think is here. Help me fill in the blanks....
Giving head to a bottle?
Too many Assholes?
(Land of the Free) USA
Acceptance is you Pt. 1 & 2
here is the correct? track list:
01. skinhead march
02. giving head to a bottle
03. too many assholes
04. dick's deli
05. vietnam song
06. land of the free
07. you tell me
08. no more favors
09. acceptance is you (part 1)
10. acceptance is you (part 2)
11. walk tall
14. weren't even there
15. land of the free (encore)
Suburban Uprise - Live @ City Gardens

SOCIAL DECAY REHEARSAL TAPE FROM 1987... Its a little noisy and ruff but man we were thrashing shit up back then. Fast and noisy drunk-core! I left some of the banter is as well. It is really great hearing Eddie alive and talking and asking what time it is because he has to be home for dinner! classic. RIP brother. Also Rich Beattie saying he wants to drink a little more.... and a little story about the "God Father".... Stupid, stupid fun... I know this might not appeal to lots of people but this is for my friends and for me... I guess you had to be there...
