Well it has been rather quiet on my part this weekend. Been ripping some stuff as well as doing some home stuff. Channel 3 from the Los Angeles area has always been rather a big favorite of mine. Their early stuff on Poshboy were a nice mix of Clash inspired American Hardcore that I dug. Their 2nd album After The Lights Go Out remains one special album to me. After that release the band had some lineup changes and Jay Lansford joined from The Stepmothers. If anyone is familiar with Jay's writing abilities you will know that the cat can write some pretty good tunes. With his influence, CH3 became more Clash and Alarm inspired, as well as reaching back into past influences, like the song Lord Of The Thighs that CH3 covers on this album by Aerosmith. Don't let that put you off, it is actually quite good! This album was released on Enigma which in the mid to late '80's had some pretty cool bands like Agent Orange, TSOL, The Effigies, and some others.
