Black Flag – “Damaged”

Black Flag – “Damaged”

Black Flag – “Damaged”   Just like I think Black Sabbath was the first metal band and refined the genre to come. And The Ramones were the first punk band setting the path for all to follow. I would say with Black Flag and hardcore- they did the same. [Read More]

X – “Los Angeles”

X – “Los Angeles”

X – “Los Angeles”   X is one of my favorite punk bands. And they are my favorite L.A. punk band which is saying a lot, as they beat out Fear, Angry Samoans, The Screamers, Circle Jerks and Black Flag. I must admit a lot of it’s due to their [Read More]

MINOR THREAT

MINOR THREAT

MINOR THREAT – “MINOR THREAT (Comp)”   Minor Threat was one of those bands that somehow slipped through our ears, mine and Andy’s. We knew the name, of course, but somehow were never exposed to their music early on. I didn’t hear them till [Read More]

Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”

Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”

Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”   Andy & I have always prided ourselves on having the most absurd sense of humor. Others go for accolades, we go for ridiculousness and ridicule. Unfortunately, Americans have decided that during the next [Read More]

AC/DC – “Let There Be Rock”

AC/DC – “Let There Be Rock”

AC/DC – “Let There Be Rock”   They may not be punk and they may not be, really metal but they may be one of the best rock bands of all time and I’m positive most of TNB’s readers would agree with that statement. So when Andy Bang picked [Read More]

Black Sabbath – “Paranoid”

Black Sabbath – “Paranoid”

Black Sabbath – “Paranoid”   And then there was Black Sabbath. This tribute, to their best known album, comes just a few days after they’ve played Boston on their farewell tour, as most of you know and some of you were lucky enough to see. I [Read More]

ALAN VEGA

ALAN VEGA

ALAN VEGA   I’m guessing a lot of folks don’t know Alan Vega, who died in his sleep last week at age seventy-two, or his band Suicide. And if you do check them out on the internet and read how influential they were on eighties synthesizer bands you might [Read More]

Dead Kennedys – “Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables”

Dead Kennedys – “Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables”

Dead Kennedys – “Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables”   The Dead Kennedys were, in my alcohol soaked recollection, the first hardcore punk band that became popular (at least in Boston) and looking back, paved the way for all the heavy hardcore, [Read More]

Raw Power

Raw Power

Raw Power Iggy & The Stooges   Raw Power by Iggy & The Stooges was released in 1973. I remember buying this album, along with the New York Dolls album, on the same day at Woolworth’s, that used to be in downtown Boston on Washington Street. I, also, [Read More]

Ramones

Ramones

Ramones   The Ramones first album set the course for pretty much all of the music TNB covers today. So Andy picked this one and when you’re talking classic albums- there’s no discussion, it’s a fact. And though people wanted to punch me in the face at [Read More]
