This was released 12 years ago, can you believe that? 2001.
That same year a friend and me went to see The Locust, The Oath, JR Ewing and Kid Commando at Meeths, a youth club in Gothenburg, Sweden. The small venue was packed with kids selling their DIY stuff, stuff from their DIY-distro and so on.
I remember that all four bands got the crowd moving, but The Oath was the fiercest. The crowd even got into a (small) circle pit, which eventually resulted in the vocalist getting stuck in the middle with the microphone chord wrapped around his leg. Great fun.
Another fun thing was the fact that Justin Pearson (of The Locust) was bobbing his head to the music, as if he was playing in a 60s pop band. Awesome.
The Locust is not a 60s pop band…
And the vinyl? I still like some of the tracks very much, for example “KooKooKa Fuk-U”, “Intensify” and “Feel Good Hit of the Fall”.
Listen to !!! – !!! (vinyl tracklist).
So…that’s that. Making meatlof (first time in over 18 years) and baking bread.
I like the Misfits and Black Flag, but to be honest the first I heard from either of these guys was Danzigs Danzig III – How the Gods Kill when it came out, back in 1992. After that I got into punk and indie, you know Dischord Records, read “Back in the Van”, SST Records and much more…and more about both Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig. And Black Flag, Samhain and stuff.
