All very unique bands and our punk band, aptly named " The Skull Cracking Claw Hammers " did covers of all of these bands in the early 80's. :D

Today we are much older and just do classic 60's and 70's rock, but I will tell you, these bands were a lot of fun to play in small rural bars, yet we did get quite a few blank stares from time to time ! LOL

Vancouver had the Dayglo Abortions, I remember another Van punk band called Mr Poopy Pants :lol:
Pungent Stench
Municipal Waste
Pussy Riot
Necrophagist
Cannibal Corpse
The Golers..named after a clan of inbred Nova Scotians

Porcupine Tree..love em

Just try getting a number one record when you happened to be called either The Revolting Cocks or 1000 Homo DJs

The two bands had members who played for both bands. :lol:
