This Show Could Totally Be Your Life


This Show Totally Rocks Numero 44 25th July

I don’t know what made me think of Our Band Could Be Your Life this week.  Maybe pics on FB from touring bands, or playing The Minutemen on last week’s show, or even a recent night in, listening to some old Chicago/Austin noise rock, but it got me to thinking of how great the bands in the book were/are and how mad some of the stories are.  If you haven’t read the book, read it, start today.  So on to the show.  It starts off with a bit of the Wipers, just cuz.  Then it is a chapter by chapter run down of the bands in the book:   Black Flag, Minutemen (Click the link for We Jam Econo) , Mission of Burma, Husker Du, The Replacements, Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers, Big Black, Dinorsaur Jr, Fugazi, Minor Threat and Mudhoney.  I skipped Beat Happening as I don’t have any of their material and I will leave the room if any is put on the stereo.  So that is the book and its worth the price alone for the story of Watt gaffer taping the legs of his trousers shut for days to keep in a severe case of the trotskys.  The other big revelation this week was that Poison Idea was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.  They are followed by Bad Religion, The Angry Samoans, Mule , the Jesus Lizard and lastly Fucked Up.  Alright that’s your lot, enjoy, let’s get it on!!!
