Short and sweet. Here's the Subverts. Same show as the first three. Nice mix of old and new. (At least other than what was on their 7" & the Oz comp., sooooo new?) Check it out, hear it out, & enjoy!

Now this was the set I had been waiting for all night long. There were many great bands to come out of Chicago, but little to none possessed the ferocity of Strike Under. Now unfortunately not all the original members could make it. In fact there was only one. Steve explains why in the beginning of the set. Now although Chris, Pierre, & Bob were not able to perform, it's not like Steve just got 3 guys off the street to join him on stage. He rounded up Vic Bondi & Dave Shields of Articles of Faith as well as Joe Haggerty of Pegboy/Bloodsport. So sit back & enjoy the first (& last?) time Strike Under songs have been performed live since 1981!

Next band up is the great spastic art punk known as Silver Abuse. This would be the second of three bands that Chicago all-star Camilo Gonzalez would have a hand in for the night. (Toothpaste, Silver Abuse, & Naked Raygun) They played a couple from the Oz album, "Cuban Homo Farms" from their 7" (Although tonight it was known as "Buggery Barn"), plus some others. Great set over all. Check it out for yourself!

P.S. Having a little trouble with some of the titles (obviously!). If anyone can help feel free to leave a comment.

I know I've been gone for a very, very long time. Again just another one my of many hundreds of apologies. I decided I'd better have something damn good when I do come back. I hope this doesn't disappoint.....
Complete coverage of this year's Riot Fest will be coming straight to you all by way of me and my little Kodak camera. Well I guess not complete coverage seeing as I didn't make it to every show. Just all the ones the were worth flying halfway across the country for. Basically all the reunions. So we'll start with the first night, the very, very long awaited Busted At Oz Reunion. I won't be doing any reviews per say, because the nice people over at The Punk Vault have already done a wonderful job of that. I'll just let the videos speak for themselves.
I filmed well over 10 hours of video and have much to go through. So over the next few weeks I'll be posting videos from the Oz show, Bhopal Stiffs, Articles of Faith & Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School of Medicine, Articles of Faith secret show, Zero Boy & Negative Approach, & Roy Ellis (Mr. Symarip). So please do stay tuned. It will be worth the wait.
Let's get things started with the Busted At Oz Reunion......... TOOTHPASTE!!!
