Oh Messy Life – October 5, 2023 Show Notes
Track 1: the Avengers – Teenage Rebel
I saw the Avengers were playing another show and was inspired to throw together a set of early punk bands that played in San Francisco back in the 1970s.
Track 2: The Offs – Hundred Dollar Limousine
This track was recorded live at the legendary Mabuhay Gardens. I first heard of The Offs one night at the Balazo gallery, after the show when most of the audience had left, they set up a film projector and showed Richard Gaikowski’s short film “Deaf/Punk“
Track 3: U.X.A. – No Time
The RE/Search Publications photo book “Punk ’77” was helpful when planning this set of music.
Track 4: Negative Trend – How Ya Feelin’ 04:57
The “Punk ’77” book has a quote about how Will’s English accent fooled a lot of folks.
Track 5: The Dils – You’re Not Blank (So Baby We’re Through)
Technically based out of L.A. I’m pretty sure they played a lot of shows up in S.F. around this time.
Track 6: The Nuns – Media Control
Featuring Alejandro Escovedo, of the very very musical Escovedo family.
Track 7: Crime – San Francisco’s Doomed
Going out to all propagators of doom loop hysteria.
Track 8: Pink Section – Midsummer New York
The last time I saw the Avengers play, Penelope Houston was wearing a Pink Section t-shirt.
Track 9: COLLIGNON – Viemos de Longe
Once again, Les Disques Bongo Joe has my number.
Track 10: Ivan y Los Metalicumbieros – Planeta Perron!
From the soundtrack to La Curandera Cumbiambera, described as a Cumbia-Metal-Anime film.
Tack 11: Real Cumbia Activa RCA – El Vacilón, Pt. 2
Another find via Bandcamp promo email.
Track 12: Rex Omar – Tokota
From the self titled EP out on Soundway Records.
Track 13: abracadabra – at the zoo
Another track from this local band with mind-blowingly retro sounds.
Track 14: Uber Magnetic – Upstate Dead
Uber Magnetic is a new collaboration between Jihad the Roughneck MC and Junior Drispol.
Track 15: Bloody Snowman – Look Behind You
I heard that local musician Bloody Snowman had passed away so I pulled out this track from a few years back in tribute.
Track 16: Fnordism – Harmless Lachesism
From the Unknown Colours EP.
Track 17: Elisapie – Taimangalimaaq (Time After Time)
There is a very charming video for this Cindy Lauper cover.
Track 18: Tony Molina – Hangover Song
Here’s hoping Tony recovers soon from his recent injury!
