Here’s the Punk thread!! 8)

Figured what the hell…we got a few different music threads so why not dedicate one to Punk and Hardcore.

I have been disconnected from the scene for some time now. Would love to hear some new bands or discuss old ones.

As for new bands, my vote for the best punk/hardcore of recent times would have to go to “OFF!” Keith Morris, ex Black Flag and Circle Jerks has put together what I think is the best hardcore since the 80’s! Powerful stuff!

Not really new, honorable mention should go to the Swedish hardcore band “Refuse” and their album “The Shape Of Punk To Come”. Great album and highly recommended.

Although I have tons of recommendations, I would have to say my all-time favorite from days of old goes to the British hardcore pioneers “Discharge” and their album “Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing”. Over 30+ years later and this album still holds the crown as one of the best punk/hardcore albums ever released. Im sure opinions will differ

And to add… probably the best punk documentary about the US hardcore scene in the early 80’s. “American Hardcore”. If you haven’t seen it…go watch it NOW!!

Good recommendation! I've been listening to Off! non-stop for the last few weeks. Captures the energy and attitude of classic American hardcore.

Huge Keith Morris fan here.

I hadn't bothered checking out Off! until today thanks to a link on another site. They are indeed fantastic.

Love Keith Morris' work in Black Flag. Circle Jerks never did much for me, I have tried several times over the years.

The Cramps! Absolute classic! One of the best shows I have ever had the privilege to see. Lux, dawning his usual one piece skin tight spandex leotard with high heels dancing around like a mad man. And Ivy, gold mini skirt, big red hair and even bigger Gretsch guitar (that thing is huge compared to her!). She forgot to wear her panties that night! :shock:

That Young Canadians vid is great. Love the spastic go-go girls!! :lol:

I grew up in the T.O. hardcore scene in the 80's. Used to hang out at The Bridge/Starwood all the time. Saw bands there like DRI, Gang Green, Raw Power, D.O.A, Dayglo Abortions, Dr. Know, Decry, and local bands like Sudden Impact, Sacrifice, Negative Gain, D.O.G., Problem Children, Bunch of F**king Goofs, Social Suicide, M.S.I, etc... etc...

Really? Me and you may have crossed paths….or pits!
BFG! LOL…me and Crazy Steve didn’t really get along (although not many did). I went to school with some of the guys from Sacrifice.

No way. That's awesome man.... We may very well have.

I used to play bass in D.O.G., if you remember them at all. Sadly, our vocalist Terry Girouard passed away a couple of years ago. There was the DMZ in Kensington Market too, if I recall correctly. There were a lot of shows there.

Sorry don’t recall D.O.G. There were tons of bands back then…most are just a blur to me now. (I’ll blame that on the alcohol consumption!)

The DMZ was an old rundown house the Goofs rented (or squatted) to play gigs.

Yeah, there were tons of bands back then, and were constantly swapping out members and/or starting new bands. I forgot about Oakville bands Negative Gain and Hype. They used to play a lot at the bridge too.

The aformentioned Sacrifice and Sudden Impact had Brian Taylor as producer on some albums... his old band Youth Youth Youth are a great Toronto Punk/Hardcore band. Hope comes out from behind the counter at Rotate for another show.

Also the 3Tards and Epileptic Brain Surgeons are some other good Toronto Punk bands.

Pennywise - Pennywise and Rancid - ...And out come the Wolves, are two must own albums as well as Suffer by Bad Religion.

I am a big fan of Keith Morris and OFF! I just saw Keith with FLAG a few weeks ago in TO. I am partial to the early Toronto scene. Bands like the Viletones, The Demics and The Diodes.
Good idea for a thread :)

That lineup kicks a lot of ass... I wasn't crazy to see them in Quebec the other weekend because I read some bad reviews of other shows. Dunno what they were smoking because I thought they kicked. Was cool to see them on the small stage as Marilyn Manson played on the other side... Meanwhile every punk band from Rancid to Pennywise and hardcore bands like Madball and Biohazard were in the back watching the show. Looked like Manson put on a good one too, but glad I caught Flag.

Discharge were supposed to play in Quebec too, but they and H2O got stopped at the border.
