This fanzine just arrived in the mail at our headquarters. Haven’t even cracked the cover yet, but wanted to give you a chance to grab your own if you’re interested.
Please note the classy pin design on the right. I didn’t even order that thing, but it was in the envelope. It’s like they knew me already.

Live track from the brand-new X___X retrospective LP/download album “X STICKY FINGERS X”, with a typical crass and tasteless John Morton cover.
I was a little miffed to find nothing new here outside of 1978 live stuff to go with their excellent two 45s, but some of that live stuff’s excellent, like “Don’t Rock The Flowers/Felt Hammer”, which I’m posting for ya here. Some of the live tracks even have Dave E. (Dave E.!) on lead vocals – word has it he was in the band for a tiny slice of their 6-month existence.
You may experience some more of this on the next Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio podcast, which I’m recording in the next couple days.
I guess as long as Fuckin’ Record Reviews are going to be so kind as to post my writings from over two decades ago, I might as well get in on the nostalgia trip as well, right?
Here’s a review from my own Superdope ‘zine #4 from 1992. I understand that these tracks will again be available shortly….!
I spent the better part of a quiet Tuesday evening holed up in a room creating the mix you can now download here – DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO PODCAST, Edition #13. I’ve been putting these together about every two weeks or so for the past five months, but if this is your first one, well – welcome to the show. I play songs I like, play-act at being a “DJ”, mix-n-match songs on my Mac, talk into a computer, and generally try to keep all the shows to about an hour. You can download all 12 of the past editions here.
This one’s got new stuff from RAW PRAWN, THE DELPHINES, CANDY HIGHWAY, SOCK PUPPETS and COLLEEN GREEN, along with super sub-underground weirdness, punk, garage, pop & more from The Moodists, Electric Eels, Icky Boyfriends, The Fall, Solger, Crash Course In Science and a bunch of other winners.

Just received one of those newfangled cassette-transfer contraptions in the mail recently, one of those things that lets you take ancient cassette tape recordings and transfer them into new, improved digital versions. Even figured out how to use it. Just in the nick of time, too – I mean, I have a garage full of 1980s mix tapes, live show recordings, and radio shows I once did in college moldering and decaying. Another year or two and they’d be sawdust. This post is the first of several rescue/reclamation projects.
On June 14th, 1989, a 21-year-old version of me did his final “White Trash” radio show on KCSB-FM in Santa Barbara, CA, as he graduated from college that very week. It was taped, and after festering in aforementioned garage for 24 years, was transferred this evening and uploaded for what interested parties there might be to then download and listen to. Having listened to the tape for the first time in at least 20 years before digitizing it tonight, it naturally brings forth much embarrassment – so please humor me and let me add a few careful disclaimers in case you wanna listen to it (and you should – the music is smokin’).
After doing a radio show at KCSB for four years, and having had access to all the records in their library (and being a rabid music hound/record collector of the most obsessive order), I got to be fairly knowledgeable in the limited punk rock/heavy underground rock genres I’d permitted myself to like. My dismissive, albeit very studied, insecure cockiness is on display in this show. I’m not sure I’d actually like this DJ right now as a human being if I was hearing him on the radio for the first time. Though I love every song I played in this, “My Top 40 favorite songs of all time” show, I can’t believe how dudely it all is. For the 1989 version of me, it was all dudes, all punk, all raw and all aggressive. The only chicks allowed were those rare cool ones from The Bags, The Avengers and Sonic Youth. That’s it. The Fall sucked already, and The Lazy Cowgirls were the best live band in the world.
It’s also preposterous that someone with such a limited musical life experience and frame of reference could even deign to determine a 40-greatest-songs-of-all-time list. As you might expect, approximately 37 of mine came from the 1980s. One of the highlights/lowlights of this show is the recording that starts the show, a nervous, mealy-mouthed 16-year-old me doing a “guest DJ” slot on KFJC (on the “Ransome Youth Show”) in 1983. Then the 21-year-old me mocks him mercilessly, with all the wisdom and experience that 5 years of perspective and deep life experience brings.
Now that I’m doing a fake radio show podcast here in 2012/2013 – Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio – I was startled to see some identical on-air back-announce mannerisms crop up from ‘89 that mirror the blather I’m doing today. Hopefully you’ll enjoy forty dudely 70s/80s songs from the likes of The Pagans, Mudhoney, Black Flag, Scratch Acid, Die Kruezen, Electric Eels and more. I have even worse shows sitting in the garage ready to be rescued and maybe even posted at a later date.

The ELECTRIC EELS, circa 1975.
There’s a mind-melter of a mix on 8Tracks that I’d highly recommend you listen to. It’s a set of proto-punk and just general noise and slop from about ‘75 through maybe 1980 or so, placed there by ISITANART and entitled “Kiss My Machine”. We’re talking Simply Saucer, Chrome, Electric Eels, Swell Maps, Teddy & The Frat Girls, X_X, and even a few I’ve never heard before, like Count Vertigo and AK-47. As sub-underground as it gets in an age when everything is on the internet; these are pure pulls from what’s obviously a deep record, or at least mp3, collection.
