The 100th Post (Teenage PhDs).....
...and the last one. It's probably starting to seem like a conspiracy with all the site closures lately but I assure you that I decided months ago to retire (for now at least) after I hit three digits. First off, I want to thank members of the following bands for their positive feedback: Stark Raving Mad, Black Market Baby, Reflex From Pain, Sideshow, Killroy, TMA, friends and family of The Fiends, Manifest Destiny, US Chaos, DDT, Ugly Americans, Menstrual Cycles, E-13, Bomb Squad, Algebra Mothers, Landlords, and anyone I may have left out. Total number of complaints about copyright infringement (even though I always felt like it wasn't really my place to make other people's music available for mass consumption) over the course of 100 posts= zero. Now that's punk. Thanks to everyone who has emailed and thanks for listening. There are plenty of blogs out there better than this one so go check them out (AND let them know you stopped by). On to the last post....
If you were to sit around banging on a guitar and bass (that don't really sound in tune) and recorded the output on a jambox you might end up with this record. Actually your record would probably be crap- while this one, strangely, seems rather brilliant. Drums? Fuck it, who need drums. And after it was all over the Teenage PhDs had the audacity to commit it to vinyl (instead of just some crappy cassette). If anyone knows the story behind this 7" I'd like to hear it. According to the Teenage PhDs "Punk Rock Is Dead" and I suppose that's true for "Dressed For The H Bomb" as well. Enjoy this 7" from 1980. Adios.
