Let Them Know-The Story of Youth Brigade and BYO

For those that don't know, I am a very BIG fan of the band CH3. Really I mean I love that band allot. Well this album has just been release and contains bands covering other bands that recorded on BYO or covering Youth Brigade songs. It is a pretty cool comp. with the likes of Leatherface, CH3, Cute Lepers, NOFX, Pennywise and such. The reason that I am bringing up this comp. is that I saw a CH3 video on Youtube and they did a video for the song Scratches and Needles that was originally done by the wonderful band The Nils who hail from Angry's neck of the woods in Canada. After seeing this video I have not been able to get enough of this version of the song. In my humble opinion I think the CH3 version is better. Just my thoughts! If this interests you readers, please go out and find this comp. or if you want to hear the song for free, go over to Youtube and check out Channel 3 covering Scratches and Needles. It is awesome!!!

My Teams

Nothing better than sitting down and watching your favorite team on their day. Sundays are just awesome. Something about the weather changing to fall, the crisp air and football. As you can see from the picture above, I am a SF 49er fan. My team has won 5 Super Bowls. More than most of your teams. I could care less if your team has won one in the past 5 or so years. My team has 5. I have been a fan since 1969, and I will be for the rest of my time on this earth.
Same goes for my beloved Giants who I had to sit and watch lose last night in the City by The Bay. Tough losing to the Satan loving Dodgers. YOU ARE blue scum. Blue is bullshit. I hate every Dodger fan in existence (well the one's that are SO called friends, and others that are supposedly family that has crossed to the dark side, those folks are barely ok....kidding). I saw many fights last night, allot of pointing fingers, and heckling. Loads of arrests too. Ahhh what a way to spend a Saturday night huh. I have been a fan of my SF Giants since 1969 too. 1969 was the year that I was taken to Candlestick Park and had the pleasure of being indoctrinated into my teams. I will be a fan of my Giants until the day I die. I love my team.
Today is dedicated to my 49ers making a clean start and back to greatness. I love my teams!
If you don't like this post or don't like my teams, well then you too can fuck off.

Edit: both my teams won today. The SF 49ers beat the best team from the Conference and Div. In fact, for those that don't know, The Cardinals were in the Super Bowl 9 months or so ago. They are good, real good. My team beat them on great defence and some timely plays. I am on my way to enjoy my Sunday night, have a little drink and some dinner and reflect on how well both my teams did today. You see, as I told you earlier, I love my teams.

On the music front, their will be some new posts coming down in the near future. I have changed jobs, and I am adjusting to a whole new schedule. I am back to working in my old hometown of San Jose, which I am thrilled about. Be patient, Angry and I have some cool stuff in store for ya!

Stratford Mercenaries

Found this on the web this morning and I have playing this all morning long. Yes all morning long. Some of you may know who Stratford Mercenaries are. This band consisted of Steve Ignorant, the drummer of Lack Of Knowledge-The Buzzcocks, and I think the guitar player from Dirt? Well if you think this sounds like Crass you will be mistaken. Cutting edge punk here for sure, and at times it reminds me of Sham 69. No shit really. My old band supported The Stratford Mercenaries in San Francisco around 1997 or so. I really did not watch to much of the gig for some reason. I do however remember loading out to head home and Steve Ignorant was hanging about outside and he complimented me on our band and how well we played that day. Wow! That was real cool. Well, search this out, it is worth the efffort. If you cannot find it, and someone wants me to upload the tracks, let me know.

An Absolute Killer Record Label - Sing Sing Records

Sorry I haven't had much time to post lately but soon you will see some stuff from Angry! Just wanted to mention an absolutely killer reissue label called Sing Sing Records that a friend of mine turned me on to. Incredible Powerpop/Punk reissues that I'm sure many that visit this blog will be blown away by. The quality of these releases is unbelievable with great reproductions of the original 7" sleeves (and yes they only do vinyl reissues so pull out that old turntable if you have retired it) Please visit their site and you will be amazed........
