Watch the guy in the black and green shirt and the guy at the end in the white...
I can't decide whether that dancing reminds me of a) a bizarre form of Irish country dancing, b) pre-school children dancing to 'atmospheric' sounds or c) how a personified stick insect would move.
Very funny, very odd...
That sort of flailing limbs stuff- it's like Lisa Simspon in that Ice Hockey episode.
My "heavy" dancing just involves a lot of air guitaring, neck spasms, elbows, jumping around, vocalising and rhythmic dancing. Although I've never seen it caught on camera I assume it probably looks fucking ridiculous. :P
and if you get in my way it's your ooown fault.
Exactly what I thought.
It's just the way he decides to spear the singer at the end, taking out half the crowd as well. Great stuff.
they need to watch this tutorial:
It reminds me of the film 'The Idiots' where the people pretend to be mentally handicapped. Dancing like fools, while everyone stands around the edges of the room looking either frightened or confused.
is for wankers, and anyone who defends it is a homosexual.
i dont mind being knocked around in a pit, but but being hit in the face by a fast moving hand is good for noone.
where mark and jez go to rainbow dance class
braindead shit for those who don't actually give a shit who is playing, just as long as it goes CHUNCHUNCHUNWEEECHUNCHUNCHUNRRAAARRR*half-time-beatdown*RRAAAAARRCHUNCHUN
My mate once tried to demonstrate this to me and it was going well for about 8 seconds until he did like a 520 Ninja Roundhouse into a full length mirror. It was funny as fuck.
doing it at an actual gig would be a bit strange and quite foolish. that didn't look like an actual gig in some ways. looks dead good though.
one minute you're being kicked in the face then a fat man crowd'surfs' on top of you and strangles you with his wallet chain. Punk rock!
the first time i saw it in a pit (biohazard/sick of it all), i was a bit worried. but remarkably, no one got knocked the fuck out.
the music isn't bad. nice riffs. reminds me of dri. (=
it's all woman-hating homophobes that couldn't make the football squad.
by the sounds of things. Just as then most hardcore is formulaic badness. But the best bands are awesome.
but most of the best bands discouraged violence for violence's sake, and people like Rollins would go out of their way to shit on people with bad pit etiquette.
in Black Flag Live 1984 in bradford DVD where this one bloke in a green boiler suit keeps sitting on the stage and is generally not respecting Ginn's space. G.G keeps spitting in his hair (which is fair enough for back then) but he doesnt notice nor budge so he does a footballer style snot-spit landing perfectly on him and he runs off...
and he looked genuinely pleased with himself afterwards. I <3 Ginn.
at least he has an opinion on me! He told me he was INDIFFERENT regarding his thoughts on you. OOOOOOOOOH reverse burny. You play with firecore....
Rollins must have inspired the meatheads a bit. He got into fights with 'fans', had an awesome fat neck and sung angry lyrics.
rollins ruined black flag!
I don't dislike him, i'm just stating the facts innit. He did have a big fat neck. And Ginn wrote the words for many o the songs.
it's become a cliche
he was a great frontman, although his sense of humour was a bit non existent.
best black flag member ever = chuck dukowski.
His name is n-nigger-g backwards :O
but yeah, better than Ginn because Ginn's basically a humourless cat-lady now.
Chuck D didn't have a bad period, AND he wrote "I've Heard It Before", "American Waste" AND "My War"!
the Chuck Dukowski Band of present day sucks.
Gree Ginn>Bill Stevenson>Keith Morris>Chuck>Davo>Ron Reyes.
on Mark Prindle? I dunno if he's that dour, but he loves cats and techno now.
Chuck has his own band that plays My War with squealy jazzy horns. Whether or not this is good I don't really know.
MASSIVELY UNDERWHELMED! As where most of the core flag fans i saw there :(
i can imagine. That version of My War on the site was ok though.
it's my favourite song ever though.
everyone knows Keith Morris was the best man for the (front man) job. You never know, they could still be going today if they stuck with him at the helm! I've always liked Ron Reyes (as singer) from the Decline of western civilisation footage. But the crowd didn't respect him enough (apparently cos he was a portuguese?!? according to HR in his autobiography.)
he was a hopeless junkie.
ron reyes quit on stage and became a preacher in Toronto or something, but he did once smash up the Flag tour van when he heard they were in Canada.
but HR from Bad Brains is actually insane :(
i read an interview with Daryl Jenifer once about racism that was really fucking funny, the best anecdote was about being in Paris with a redhead girl and being called a "fucking cottonpickheur" by a Masai type guy :D
It totally sounds like a real french word too.
The ROIR tapes = best hardcore ever. My god they sound so fierce it's ridiculous.
'(FROM THIS POINT FORWARD, ALL UNBOLDED TEXT IS HR, SOUNDING AS PEACEFULLY SPACED OUT AS A FIVE-YEAR-OLD BOY)'
there were guys limbering up for a good 10 mins before the support started but then they largely took it in turns to strut their stuff. it was like a hardcore version of the run dmc video
i stopped going to hardcore shows.
oh and cos all the songs sound the same.
That's why I've only been to one hardcore show. Well, maybe two, I can't remember. Does an all-dayer that I only stayed at for half a day count?
i did both days of ninjafest in 2004.a piece of me died that weekend
