I went to the “San Francisco Punk Renaissance” photo and ‘zine show this past Friday, and saw a bunch of wild photos of Crime, Screamers, Nuns, Flipper etc., many of which had never been seen before.
There was also a table of fanzines in sleeves, including some known reads like Damage, Ripper and Search & Destroy, but then a whole host of very cool obscurities like the ones I took pictures of here. We were even allowed to pop ‘em out of the sleeves and look at them a little. Fantastic stuff.
Meet PAMPERS. They’re a NYC band who’ve got their first album coming out on In The Red, like, next week. The song you’re about to play by pressing the button above is called “Eruptions”, and it’s from a ridiculously limited 45 from 2011 on Jack Shack Records.
These fellas have the dangerous, off-kilter distorto-punk thing down, and may even be adding a new chapter themselves. Love this song, in any case. Looking forward to getting busy with that album next week.

Another terrific post over on Waitakere Walks, this one on the UK press’ response to US-based punk in the late 70s.
