What a weekend it was my friends, The Unnatural Axe 30th Anniversary Party
and Lawless Records' record release of "Ruling The World From The Back
Seat" Record Release Party. ….three incredible nights of awesome music….we
will have a full account of each night within the week for you but I can tell
you each night was truly awesome and I think I am now in love with Tesco Vee;
The Meatmen were beyond incredibly entertaining and I was laughing so much
that my jaw started hurting. It was really one of the best sets I have seen in
ages!! And Tesco looks like a punk rock Rutger Hauer gone insane
like the "skin job" Roy Batty in Blade Runner! oh yeah!! And that was after
a super excellent set by The Queers with my of my other faves; Wimpy
Rutherford singing lead…whew!!Pictures - Unnatural Axe Anniversary - Day One - Click Here.
The energy level for the whole night on Saturday was just through the freaking roof and they had the air
conditioning on; miracle of miracles!!!
Friday was a fun night! Joey Boy of Red Invasion was out of control nervous
the whole night which always makes for good entertainment and he got up and did
two songs with Cheetah Chrome and The Axe which always makes for even better
entertainment. Seeing Wiilie Alexander and The Boom Boom Band again was
great and they did a really good set, and the general consensus is that Mr.
Loosigian is one killer guitar player…whew!! The Italian bands on Friday
and Saturday were great too. And when the Barton brothers get together
for the Outlets the power on stage is up ten-fold! There's so much to rave
about…you'll have to check back for our pages of photos and commentary…
Now to end the month;
This Wednesday August 27th, The Murder are at The Abbey and they
have their new CD Release available!! Then we got: Buried In Leather at The
Abbey this Friday, August 29th And Saturday, August 30th at TT, The Bear's
