People say all this, but listen to a band without a bassist and tell me they're any good. You can't.
Hello,

I love bass. I tried to play for a while but didn't have the time to devote to it - but you challenged me: The Black Keys, The White Stripes - no bass (at least early on)?
I was jokingly implying that I don't like those bands in particular ;)
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

One of my ideas for thinking about punk cinema is to show Penelope Spheeris' Suburbia, not mainly because of the subject matter but because of Spheeris. Another possibility is something by Scott B and Beth B or other early No Wave filmmakers. Any other ideas along the lines of punk filmmaking?
Um, VH is not punk. :shifty:
Wait, you're married to Scott Baio?
FUCK NO.

A book that I've been waiting for nears release:

Mattson was part of the DC hardcore scene in the 80s and is an academic historian now.

Adult Swim Canada just restarted it at Season 1. Some awkwardness in terms of characterization and voices, but it actually hit the ground running pretty well.

Hey, y'all. I've been reading for this upcoming class (in Jan, not Sept) and had hopes for a week of fiction, whether it be a few short stories or a novel that is punk-themed or aesthetically inspired. So far I've been stumped and am ready to junk the idea. The novels and collections I've checked out either borrow a punk song for the title and that's it, or are coming-of-age stories in late 70s/early 80s Britain, with a few references to punk bands and songs thrown in. Nothing I can really use for a discussion about punk. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, keeping in mind that the point of the discussions revolve, in some way, about what the hell punk is about, what is its value.

To that end, I'll pass on a link to Stewart Home's Cranked Up Really High, from which I'll be assigning a couple chapters. Home is a snotty and smart guy with a lovely hate on for academic takes on punk. The book is long out of print, so he's put it all up on his site. It's not very long (100 pp or so) and enjoyably caustic. Which isn't to say I agree with everything he says—in many respects, I'd say our Marky is closest to his take—but he provides lots of flesh to chew.
