it was directed to all the fucking stupid ass bickering that is really annoying the shit out of me lately.

yer flesh: strangely peter davis started out in seattle. he used to hang out with the holy war cadets (i believe) and knew maire masco, dennis white, etc.pretty well. he went to a LOT of the shows i was posting flyers for. played in a band, too. i think he met hazelmeyer in seattle when he was so much involved - amrep started in oak harbor, north of seattle where haze was stationed in the military. later on haze played (for awhile) in the u-men, even. i believe he actually recorded with them.
as for fantagraphics, like alt music, alt comics had it's peak in the mid nineties. then the bubble burts and it went back to basics as before. they began to mare more monry fromthe durty comics than the alt comix. survival won out and they still struggle. pete bagge kept trying to get a motion picture deal, but they always fell through. i think maybe he had bad representation or something would be my guess.
the link bewteen alt comics and alt music began to happen because o the close physical proximity of bruce pavitt, the rocket (and their legion of comic artists), and fantagraphics physically moving to seattle at just the right time. everybody was into what everybody else was doing, so it came a long natuarally. it also helped that fantagraphics employed an awful lot of otherwise unemployable musicians. their warehouse staff was legendary.

kozikSend kozik a message :   Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah! well, so far my manipulative cheerleading has had some good effects(languidly points at the Flatstocks).
I know Pter Davis, the publisher quite well. Your Flesh started in Minneapolis along with AMREP. It basically functioned as the Amrep House Organ and Creature Booking developed by booking Amrep's roster. Long, intertwined career. Your Fleash was unique as it also was one of the first 'fanzines' to look good and also review interesting books, comics, Jazz and things 'non rock' It had many good and great writers contribute over the years. About 5 years ago Davis went through s fiasco with Fantagraphics, got married, moved to Chicago, saw his agency and magazine implode, as well as his marraige. But, Davis is indefatigable and he is currently residing in Chicago and continues to publish Your Flesh, albeit a much more arcane version than it used to be and I believe distributed by Diamond, though I may be wrong. Davis booked all the 'classic' Amrep influenced bands such as Helmet Melvins etc..for a couple of years he managed Nashville Pussy, got them into Major Label Land and then they dropped him, and subsequently tanked their deal.

He asked if anyone was from NY, I said yes, he said "welcome to the United States." everyone else laughed. Then the next thing I went to, someone else owned up to being from NY, and got the same shitty joke from some other retard.
Before that I neverr knew how the rest of the country felt about NY & NY-ers. I just thought to myself at that moment "Oh, the rest of the country is composed of complete assholes."

You see, that's weird, because many people living, and making decisions in NY are transplanted from other regions. NYC is the melting pot of America. If their acting that way towards you it's because they are personally full of shit.

John ASend John A a message :   If I had a garage, it would be so cool. I could like, park my car in there. Then maybe I could have a heavy duty tool bench with a big fuggin' vice on it. Maybe a pegboard behind it to hang all my tools on with their shapes traced in marker so they'd all have their places. Maybe my lawnmower could even fold up under said bench. I could also have a mini-fridge out there for beverages.
And once a year, I could pull the car out to the street and have a "Festacular" in my garage... that would rule.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   brendan - well, my general (note the word 'general') experience with people from nyc is that they have this incredible provincialism that creates this blinding myopia when it comes to the rest of the country. basically, if it doesn't happen in nyc, then it really didn't happen at all. (they do make exeptions for sf - which they view as a sorta 'mini nyc' - and then la - cuz of them movie things). i swear i've been treated like a backwoods primitive by new yorkers all my life. when they notice me or my work, they sorta hold it up and say "why look at this! genuine vernacular imagery produced by a country bumpkin", or something to that effect. i then get 'discovered' and then it fades away and no more attention is paid to me until some twit suddenly discovers work of primitive impact and then i get heralded as a primitive genius all over again. i've gone through the same stupid cycle about five times since the aerly 80's.
it's all pretty silly.
i see the same phenomenon in regards to music, art, fashion, in fact all popular culture generally.
so, i get a little snitty about nyc. can you blame us bumpkins out here?

I guess I play in a garage band, though we have an actual practice space. We're all getting fat, and we have no talent. Didn't know about a dress code though. might look into that.
We're also all really poor and play on shitty equipment. We drink a lot too. We could be looting and robbing rich folks, so I figure it's a good way to spend my time.

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   Well, after the Cramps started out in NYC, there was a lot of such bands there, and this continued from then on. it always dwindled and came back. Like The Fuzztones, and so on. Sure, a lot of them were retro-60s bands, like the Chesterfield Kings type of bands, but then there were bands that were what is called "Punk Rock N Roll", in NYC. I think the Northwest bands, who were indeed truly great, were drawing from The Sonics, etc, and so were this NYC bands. It's too long ago for me to remember without having to look through some archival things I have. I wasn't really into the Garage scene too much, just went to some shows when the better bands played, since yeah they were kind of punk rock anyways. Most of the time during those years i was playin in my own bands that were doing something a lot different, what evolved into Electric Frankenstein (who you liked Art, since you did a single and an album cover for us via Estrus). We had a great talk when I met you about maintaining integrity in your art and music and so on and about using non-modern production techniques and still sounding great, etc., and I don't know why you are so hateful towards me today, you can disagree with me, without taking it so personal and being so personal against me.   2003-04-16 13:20:56

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i know your word is gospel and all, but how about posting the flyers and then proving to me that these were anything more than punk bands or retro-60's bands. ya know, just because the beach boys play every year at the state fair doesn't mean there is a surf revival going on...   2003-04-16 13:09:23
kozikSend kozik a message :   anyway,,garage is all about 'search for authenticity' like, enhance your own 'specialness'. Lot of record collector scum are into Garage...'I have a copy of the Felchtones, mon etc.'
garage was a perfect place to sort of unite many elements.
I fucking hate it.

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   I was going to garage fests in 1978 and 79. Saw the Creeping Pumkins, Cheepskates,The Mosquitos, and many more. Once a year they all would play together at these 'fests' they would hold. No offense, Art, just pointing out that this is a long time thing have garage fests in NYC. If I had the flyers, I'd post it.

kozikSend kozik a message :   plus, if you where 'garage' you could actually 'be cool and hip' without actually owning, say, a vintage car-you could merely DRESS like you owned a vintage car. Patches and so on.   2003-04-16 13:03:30

kozikSend kozik a message :   'garage' was a way for fat guys and fat girls to wear a lot of clothes and hide their fatness.
A mechanics jacket hides a gut the way a sleeveless t shirt can't.
It also allows you to be in a band with a minimum of actual skill or effort.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   there is a difference between retro-sixties pailey beetle-boot bands and 'garage/punk' as it emerged in the nineties. frankly, i could never figger out what exactly what was 'garage about it... the mono men? dead moon? lord high fixers? fireballs of freedom? retro?
sure, you had yer 'silly surfers (the phantom surfers, untamed youth, etc.) and yer fake '? & the mysterians' (the makers, the chesterfield kings) and yer james brown/hot rod wannabes, but the core was total nasty punk rock.
i don't get that from the ny scene at all. they just seem to be a bunch of retro nostalgia acts in black dickies and tight pegged pants.

kozikSend kozik a message :   actually, the Man's Ruin Logo was originally the Black Cat Licorice Logo. It was a candy company from the 30's, long defunct but there was still a painted barn side down in the south Bay. I had a lawyer do a copyright search and then legally 'took over' the logo, when no one claimed it. Now, it belongs to the STate of California, as they got it as part of the Man's Ruin Corporate bankruptcy. You can probably buy it for 100 dollars.   2003-04-16 11:45:19
