FRANTIX – My Dad’s A Fuckin ‘ Alcoholic (Local Anesthetic ’83)

A very popular Denver band, The Frantix released a pair of classic singles. This is their second outing on the great Local Anesthetic Records. Chunky guitar with plenty of distortion and a raw garage aesthetic made this a Rocky Mountain hardcore classic.

ECONOCHRIST / DETONATORS – Split 7″ (Insurrection Records) 1991

Econochrist, the East bay -San Francisco squat legends, were actually formed in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1986-ish from the ashes of the band CRIMINAL INTENT. They quickly became the key players in the burgeoning Little Rock scene that centered around a show space called the Annex, supporting many touring bands that came through town. In 1988, the band and their friends decided to head west for punker pastures and landed in San Francisco. They settled into a strong, mucsically diverse Oakland scene and continued releasing records and touring. After releasing several 7″s and a couple classic lps (“Ruination” lp and the “Trained to serve” lp) they called it quits around 1993. My old band played w/these guys and another unknown, but great southern band from Tennesee called SOBERING CONSEQUENCES on new years eve 1992. I remember staying up until the wee hours of the morning hanging out and laughing hysterically with these guys. There is a complete 2x CD discography of their releases on EBULLITION records. By the way, “uncontrolable urge” is a DEVO song if you didn’t know know.

The Detonators were originally formed in Southern California around 1979-80.
They released a coulpe of really underappreciated LPs, “Emergency broadcast system” in 1983 and “Just another reason” in 1985. After relentless touring in the U.S. and Europe,they decided to move to Eugene, Oregon. They kept releasing records and touring right up until the mid 90’s. I’m not sure what their later records sound like, but all their early stuff is pretty great. They always reminded me of a west coast TOXIC REASONS or a more hardcore WIPERS.

Violent Children

Violent Children – s/t 7” (United Nutmeg Records No. 1 / 1993 ReIssue)

500 made of the original. + lyric sheet. Feat. Ray Cappo (later in Youth of Today/Shelter) on drums. Rereleased on Die Jerry Die comp. LP. The 1993 reissue is legal or at least semi-legal I think, has a different (nice!) info insert with lots of pictures .Originally released in 1983. It seems slightly generic to me and more like oh, Adrenalin O.D. or something than Youth Of Today (which is fine with me, I liked them both). I think I’ve read that the “Youth Of Today” theme song was originally by Violent Children but maybe I’m thinking of something else(?)
