Not New Music Tuesdays

(This is the first installment of Not New Music Tuesdays, a new feature by our new writer, Twin Cheeks. I know, right? We're having a contest for most immature nom de plume, and I think TC is winning so far.  Anyway, TC will be doing this every week-- presenting full album downloads taken from a personal record collection that most of you couldn't even dream of amassing. I think many of you will be pleasantly surprised by the stuff you'll find here: a lot of it obscure, all of it good, and almost none of it recent. Most of these posts will NOT focus on local releases, but we thought we'd start things off this week with an old local punk compilation that contains some great stuff that you should really hear. Enjoy! --SR)


Ok. New column, old music. Maybe some of you have heard this stuff, maybe some of you haven't. Maybe some of you will like it, maybe some of you won't. Either way, it won't kill you to listen to it.

People seem to enjoy bitching about how local music sucks these days, so I thought we should take a listen to what was going on locally 30 years ago. Recorded at ESR Studios in 1978-79 and released in 1979,  Are We Too Late for the Trend... compiled the best (or maybe the whole) of the dfw punk scene at the time. Good shit. --

i think it's worth it. but i really really really think it's too much effort to have to see the name 'twin cheeks' every week.

i think you should change your name, TC, before it's too late.


how about a contest?

Okay, I'm an avid We Shot JR reader, so imagine my surprise when I get a link from my dad this morning to this blog post. My dad was in Control (track 9). Funny stuff. Good music lasts generations, I guess. ;)

Yeah, Neal Caldwell owned VVV Records. Mark Griffin (MC 900) worked there too.

David Williams from Vomit Pigs was also in Decadent Dub Team.

I remember Neil Caldwell and Mark Griffin had a "free jazz" group that played on thursdays at the green room. I also remember riding my bike to his record store and buying the cherubs 7 inch. I still have the red spot comp. that i bought from there which has some great bands like micon and the fried abortions. Not local but what a great record store.

I went to VVV once or twice as a teen somehow, but where was Metamorphasis Records? (Expo Park?)

I've still got my Buck Naked and the Jaybirds 45; "Drinkin' Bud and Watchin' Bob b/w You only love me because I work on your car" I bought there. Local Greatness...featuring the auto-harp of course!

Forbidden Books is long gone. It was great when the first guy had it even though he's an asshole and when that other asshole bought the shop it got progressively shittier and then daddy's money went bye bye.

The best Texas punk band is Stickmen With Rayguns! Find "Some People Deserve To Suffer". It's like The Birthday Party with Darby Crash singing. I don't think they were around when this came out. Stickmen singer, Bobby Soxx, was in a band called Bobby Soxx and the Teenage Queers at the time, witch was basicly him fronting The Telefones. If you can find their version of "I wanna pee pee in the disco, mommy", you should post it in your next local retrospective.

Thanks for posting this, TC! I think it's very important for people to have a knowledge of their local music history.

i'm doing this every week as long as SR is going to let me. my post won't always be about local music, but, trust me, bobby soxx will not be forgotten!
