Modcast #134: Mr. Suave's Rough Edges

This modcast is a bit different than the others, since I'm turning the mod mod world into more of a punk punk world.


Growing up in southern California in the early 80s I was lucky enough to get to take in some of the great music of the era, namely hardcore punk. Most of the time I was wearing paisly shirts, three button mohair suits, desert boots and riding my scooter. But there were sometimes when you just needed to experience some non-violent violence, some unagressive agression. Those were when you headed out to see some hardcore bands like The Stepmothers, Circle Jerks, Delirium Tremens, Pilsbury Hardcore, the Dickies, TSOL and their ilk. The music was fast and loud and the crowds were over the top. Good luck if you were a little guy like me who got caught in the wrong pit. There were one or two times where I came home bruised and bloodied and missing a shoe or shirt. So, here's some heavier stuff, some hardcore suave style.

The Rezillos -- Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight
Adolescents -- L.A. Girl
45 Grave -- Concerned Citizen
Shattered Faith -- Right is Right
Leaving Trains -- Gas, Grass or Ass
Circle Jerks -- World Up My Ass
Social Distortion -- Telling Them
Dickies -- I'm OK, You're OK
Willful Neglect -- E.M.S. & D.
Dead Kennedys -- Pull My Strings
The Cortinas -- Defiant Pose

Black Flag -- Rise Above
