This is REALLY Cool - TK Lotus

Found this in Larry's Photoblog thread.

The site its from is in Japanese, so can't tell you what it is or what's involved, but to my eyes it's a 2-Eleven mated with a Radical. Loving that center driving position ala open wheel car or McL F1.

Very cool:

Very cool! Almost as cool as your latest avatar. I got kicked out of a small Dead Milkmen concert at my college back in the day for starting a mosh pit, lol.

I've seen the Milkmen (and a billion other punk and hardcore bands) about 10x. Ironically enough, I got hit in the head with a bottle at one of their shows. Was at Cabaret Metro in Chicago - someone inadvertently dropped a beer bottle from the balcony and the hard bottom base of the bottle hit me. Still have a small scar under my eyebrow from it!
I specifically recall it was during the song 'Dean's Dream'

Sounds like we had the same taste in music when we were younger. Does the band "Screeching Weasel" ring a bell?

Not only does it ring a bell, but I've known Dan Schafer ('Dan Weasel') for like 25 years. He used to sing for a great melodic hardcore band (ala 7 Seconds, Minor Threat, Uniform Choice) called 'Generation Waste'. A guy that grew up 2 doors down from me - known as 'Fat Ted' was their guitar player and they used to practice in the garage. That's how I got into hardcore. I was into metal (Maiden, Priest, etc) and started getting into faster/harder metal - Slayer, Exciter, Testament, etc - and Ted turned me on to bands like Discharge, GBH, TSOL, etc.

I've got a million stories including the time my little skate betty girlfriend at the time - 'cheated' on me - after a show. My buddies from a band called 'Insolent Respect' had a backyard BBQ after the Corrosion of Conformity/SNFU/No Empathy show at The Bank on Lincoln. A bunch of local 'scene' guys were there from different bands. Anyhoo, Sharon wound up making out with Reed Mullin - the drummer from COC.

I'm sure if I rattle my brain a few more times, I can come up with some other stories - including the one about Wattie from The Exploited smashing taking out a parked car when he was trying to parallel park some chick's Escort in front of Medusa's before their gig there! I literally went to EVERY hardcore show in the Chicago area from say '84-89. I've got a folder of flyers and prolly 500 LPs and 200 7". Gotta dig those out and convert to mp3!

Holy crap Swing. Talk about bringing back memories. I used to go to hardcore/punk shows back in my teens as well. In fact, I remember seeing Green Day in a schitty old warehouse in Trenton, NJ before anyone had even heard of them. If you haven't already, you might want to check out Flogging Molly. I think you'd like them. They're amazing live as well if you can still catch them in a small venue.

Anyway, give your old skate betty gf a break man (those chix were HOT, btw). The guy was in a BAND!

And now Green Day is stupid mall rock corporate crap whilst trying the fly the banner of big cool guy 'anti-Bush' rebels. Yawn.

I'm not a huge Molly fan. I'm a HUGE Pogues fan. I've seen The Pogues/Shane probably 15 times going back to the mid 80's. I always found Molly to be too derivative. There's a band from Chicago called The Tossers - same style - that I like much better. Great Big Sea not too bad either - 'The Night That Paddy Murphy Died' is a great driving song!

Depending on the mood I'm in, I can go the melodic/straight edge/West Coast stuff ala 7 Seconds, Doggy Style or the more grittier NYC/DC/Boston stuff ala CroMags, Bad Brains, Agnostic..

For my money, my top hardcore/punk albums of all time:

1. SNFU - And No One Else Wanted to Play
2. GBH - City Babies Revenge
3. DRI - Dealing With It
4. BGK - Nothing Can Go Wrong
5. Suicidal Tendencies - Self Titled
6. CroMags - Age of Quarrel
7. 7 Seconds - Walk Together, Rock Together
8. Lost Cause - Self Titled (Chicago Band)
9. Life Sentence - Self Titled
10. Naked Raygun - Throb Throb
11. Dead Kennedy's - In God We Trust, Inc.
12. Youth of Today - Break Down The Walls
13. Misfits - Legacy of Brutality
14. Misfits - Earth AD
15. Agnostic Front - Cause for Alarm
