In September, Generacion Suicida played a live radio show in Portland called "Life During Wartime". It was quite the experience! We showed up around 10:30pm, already drunk and tired from the night before. Fun! After the set, we went down the street for some Sizzle Pie (Pig Destroyer! Fuck Yeah!). Heart problems and vomit followed soon after. In any case, these recordings are raw as fuck and there are unreleased songs recorded on this session. 9 songs total in this recording.

Download it here

You can find the original posting where I got these tracks here

Tomorrow I'll upload some lyrics for the unreleased songs (maybe, cuz it's fuckin' Friday! About God damn time!) As usual, Stay Gold.

Wednesday, December 21, 2011


The next show for Generacion Suicida is January 13 at "The Spot" in El Sereno. They're not really trying with these names anymore, are they? Haha! Anyways, we're out of all merch. No more tapes or shirts. The Rayos X Lp should be out by January and the Generacion Suicida 7 inch (which the demo put to vinyl) should be out soon after that. It's getting pressed as we speak. I'll be updating this more often now, since I have internet again (no more living in the dark ages for us!). As usual, email me to for any info on shows, merch, horoscopes, love advice, etc...

Stay Golden.

I got this pic off another blog. If you own this pic and want me to take it down, let me know and I will!

I've been getting a ton of request to upload this tape for a while. So here you go! Generacion Suicida is members of Rayos X, Astalkulo, and Kruel playing some KBD influenced punk, complete with dual male/female vocals. This tape was in the making for almost a year, and it was difficult to find somebody to record us (thanks Gabby Skitzo!). Generacion Suicida will be going on a west coast tour this September along with Rayos X, so keep an eye out and spread the word!

You can download the tape here.

I still have a few copies of this tape left, so if you want to order one email

What more can be said about Poliskitzo that hasn't been said already? They are a great band here in LA that always get all the kids (if you can call a bunch of mid-twenty year old punks, kids) dancing. Need proof?

Not the best quality video, but you get the picture. This tape has a slightly different feel to it, as it has electric drums and the musicianship is more tight this time around. My particular favorite is their untitled slow track, that they affectionately call "Black Danzig". Too bad it'll never be played live.

You can download the tape here

I still have copies of this one left, so if you wanna buy one email

Tomorrow, I will finally upload the Generacion Suicida demo...

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Wow! It's been 10 years already since I first heard this CD! My how the time flies... Anyways, back when I was a young lad, this was my favorite band to go see at backyards. One of the main reasons for that is because it was one of the first punk bands I ever actually saw at a local back yard. Their live shows were intense at the time, with all the songs being played full throttle and at break neck speed (even more impressive as their drummer is like 3 feet tall... No joke!). Their songs have hints of metal and are definitely more akin to street punk along the lines of The Casualties, but at the time, they were just amazing to me. This demo will always have a place in my heart, as it's pretty much the start of my dive into punk. Enjoy!

New link. Get at it!

Monday, May 16, 2011


(My scanner is out of order at the moment. Once it's back up, I'll upload the actual cover of the CD)

Today, I managed to find a cool little demo from 2006 in my roommates music box. It was none other than LA's own Liberate. These guys play some seriously fast and thrashy hardcore, along the lines of Los Crudos and Charles Bronson (that's a pretty accurate description actually). I seen them a play a couple of shows back in the day, particularly with bands like Hit Me Back and Venganza, and they always ripped it up. I don't know too much more about this band, but I do know they also released a 7 inch. You can check out that record here.

Here's the link for this demo:


Tuesday, May 10, 2011


So, I've finally decided to retire Suicide Mondays. I've run dry of ideas for that segment and to be honest, also out of artist. So in it's a place, I bring you Old School Tuesdays. Old School Tuesdays is gonna be where I showcase local bands from the LA scene from back when I was in High school. In High School things were much more different in the punk scene than they are now. Back then, shows would get packed with tons of kids from all over LA. Do you know how crazy these shows would get, with 150 + drunken 15 year old punks? Anyways, to give you an idea, just imagine them pitting to this split.

(The first 5 tracks are the Violent Threats. Tracks 6-10 are Defied)

It's been about 2 weeks since I've posted anything on the blog. I've been super busy with work, the band, and daily life in general. Anyways, this might look like cheating since I've already posted up Warsaw (and that's technically the same band), but Joy Division is just too good to skip! Their "ideal for living" ep was their debut ep, and it has a considerably more punk sound than their later stuff that they are more known for. You might actually recognize these songs from the Warsaw album I've already uploaded, but these have a more tight sound. I've also included their debut lp "Unknown Pleasures" and the single "Love will tear us Apart" (which was released after Ian Curtis hung himself). All great stuff and definitely fun to listen to. Enjoy!

LA VOZ - DEMO 2009

Well, look what I found here! It's the La Voz demo CD I got back a few years ago (2009?). I originally got this demo to review for Fronteras Desarmadas (I don't remember which issue I actually did it for, unfortunately). To me, this demo sounds like a mixture of GRB and Los Crudos, which is of course awesome! Fast aggressive hardcore that immediately grabs your attention and never lets go. If you liked the 7 inch they released with Lengua Armada, then you should definitely download this one. Enjoy!

The Plasmatics... What more can be said about this band that hasn't been said before? I first heard The Plasmatics on TV during some VH1 show when I was about 11. I was blown away by this crazy (albeit hot!) looking girl blowing up cars and ripping shit up! This band had a tendency to shock and awe in all their live shows, with Wendy playing half the time almost completely naked. Anyways, this is some fast and furious Rock N' Roll, and Wendy O's gruff vocals perfectly compliment the music. New Hope for the Wretched was released in 1980 and Wendy O' Williams (sadly) committed suicide by shooting herself in the woods near her home in 1998.

"The act of taking my own life is not something I am doing without a lot of thought. I don't believe that people should take their own lives without deep and thoughtful reflection over a considerable period of time. I do believe strongly, however, that the right to do so is one of the most fundamental rights that anyone in a free society should have. For me, much of the world makes no sense, but my feelings about what I am doing ring loud and clear to an inner ear and a place where there is no self, only calm." - Wendy O Williams

Play it loud!!

Todays post comes from our friends DFMK from Tijuana, Mexico. I was totally not expecting this at all! Straight up punk rock, somewhat like Poliskitzo, but harder. I want to think that some of the songs remind of "Insomnio" from Spain, but at the same time they have a sound all their own. In any case, this is a pretty cool little demo that took me completely by surprise. Download it, listen to it, enjoy it! If you want to hear more from these guys, you can check them out here:

Monday, April 4, 2011



What more can be said about Reagan Youth that hasn't already been said? They are easily one of my all time favorite US hardcore bands. Melodic, powerful, and catchy with lyrics that will make you think. They don't make em like this anymore... Anyways, Reagan Youth started in 1980 in New York while the members were still in their early teens. Their first ep "Youth Anthems for the New Order" was released a few years later in 1984. There's really two eras to this band, and while some may look both, I prefer them in their early punk era. Their second era saw the band go in a more metal/hard rock approach, and while it's OK, it's just not as good as their first era. By the early 90's the band had already split. By this time, Dave Insurgent (the band's lead vocalist) had become a heavy heroin user. He also began dating a prostitute, who was also a heavy heroin user. She was murdered by the notorious serial killer, Joel Rifkin, who murdered several other prostitutes as well. During this time, Dave's mother was also killed when his father accidently ran over her in a parking lot. With all the tragedies surrounding him, he committed suicide by purposely overdosing on anti-depressants in 1993.

This next post comes courtesy from our friends FODDER from Sacramento. Coincidentally, this band contains members from VERRATERISCH, and as we all know, we're all big fans them too! This demo contains 10 tracks of raw D-Beat the likes of Early Discharge or later Varukers... Not too crusty, with a hardcore/UK82 twist. We actually got a chance to play with these guys the last time we were in Sacramento, and while there wasn't that many people at the show, they still managed to shine. Definitely fun stuff and something to keep your eye on. Hopefully, I can one day convince these guys to drive down and play in LA. In the meantime, you can listen to this demo and thank me later.

This demo is still in print, and if you enjoy my download, please support the band by buying their tape. I believe Mata La Musica carries some down here in LA.

I'm not going to be posting up anything new for the next week, as I'll be outta town. Tomorrow I'll try to post up the final dates for the Rayos X tour, so people can know whats up with that!

Sid sings, but he can't play bass? Who would have thought!?! Not me, that's for sure. Actually, I think he might be a better bass player than a vocalist. But that's just my opinion. Anyways, after the Sex Pistols disbanded in 1978, many of the other Pistols went on to release their own solo projects. This album released posthumously about 10 months after Sid's death. It mainly contains covers and live recordings of songs where, of course, Sid sings. This album was released in December 1979 and Sid Vicious died of intentional Heroin overdose on February 1979.

I'll be out of town next week, so no new suicide monday next week. See you all on tour!

Another blast from the past, courtesy of our West Side friends, Poliskitzo. This was a self released split with another band, called Ratas. Both of these bands hail from the west side of LA (Inglewood, Hawthorne, Lennox, etc...). We all know that La Banda Ya Basta become Poliskitzo, but I don't really know what ever became of Ratas (although, I do know the singer played rhythm guitar in Poliskitzo for a bit). I don't exactly remember when this CD was released, but I do believe it was about 5 years ago at the most. Ratas play punk more akin to fast hardcore and while it's not bad, the Ya Basta side really steals the show. As always, melodic/anthemic sing along punk you can dance too. Great stuff! Now download it!

I reuploaded this for everyone that is still interested. Download here: Ya Basta/Ratas

This has been in the works for a while... A long while! Originally suppose to have been released about a year ago, it was held back due to us not liking the recordings, being off key, etc... Here's a little preview for you guys. I'm going to have these with me on the Rayos X tour for sale. If you wanna buy one through mail order, email me to

The Dickies are kind of one of those annoying punk bands you just want to hate, but you can't. Their lyrics are ridiculous and everything they sing about is a joke. Yet, they have this catchy, melodic sound you just can't ignore. It's all good fun rock n' roll that doesn't take itself seriously. Then again, why should they? Originally formed in LA (of course!) back in 1977, they still are around today. As an interesting piece of trivia, The Dickies performed the title track for the horror movie "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" (which is one of the greatest campy horror movies ever in my opinion!). If you live in LA, I'm sure you've seen that movie a ton of times growing up in the 90's on channel 13's weekend movie matinée. You have the Dickies to thank for that awesome clown song... The Incredible Shrinking Dickies was released in 1979 and the guitarist/keyboardist/saxophonist, Chuck Wagon, killed himself in 1981 by shooting himself.

So, this week we finally wrapped up recording the Soledad LP that is to be released later this summer on Mata La Musika. I just wanted to share some of the songs on the Lp here. Unfortunately, you can't download them, but you can hear them all you want! We were hoping to have it ready in time for our west coast tour, but unfortunately we took too long in the recording process. And speaking of tour, here's all the info I have so far:

March 18 - Portland, OR @ Black Water Records

March 19 - Seattle, WA @ The Black Lodge

March 20 - Portland, OR @ The Know

March 21 - Off

March 22 - San Francisco, CA @ The Knockout

March 23 - San Francisco, CA (Generator Show)

March 24 - Off

March 25 - San Jose, CA @ tba

March 26 - Oakland, CA @ tba

Looks like it's going to be a fun time! If you're in town, roll thru and have a beer with us! Here's those preview tracks I promised earlier (sorry for the watermark. It only does it once though! Hahaha!):

It's only fair to post what I've been bumping this entire week, As Mercenarias from Brazil. This all girl post-punk band has been in my head for weeks with their catchy tunes. As for their sound... I can't quite put my finger on it, becuase of their unique and fresh sound. Something about it is fresh yet familiar at the same time. Yet, the closest band I can compare them too is Action Pact, the English punk band from the early 80's. Anyways, theres not much else to say, so sit back, drink a beer, and enjoy the music!

Darby Crash on the promotional poster for the film. A premonition of what was to come?

The Decline of Western Civilization was a turning point in my life. I first saw this film when I was a teenager, after a cousin of mine gave me the soundtrack on tape. I was blown away by all the performances on this film, especially Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and the Germs. As I'm sure any punk would know, Darby Crash Committed suicide on December 7, 1980 by intentionally having a heroin overdose along with his friend, Casey Cola (Cola survived). As he lay dying, he intended to write on the wall "here lie's Darby Crash", but was unable to complete it. I don't really know why he committed suicide, but the rumor is he decided to kill himself in order to become a sort of legend or a martyr for the punk scene. However, his death was overshadowed by the murder of John Lennon the very next day in New York. The Decline of Western Civilization was released in theatres on July 1, 1981... Just 7 months after Darby's death. Recently, The Germs reunited with actor Shane West on Vocals. They have been playing shows together since 2006. In my opinion, this line-up is a total sham. They really shouldn't continue playing without Darby. To make matters worse, The Germs (if you can even call them that anymore) are planning on releasing a box set titled "Lest We Forget: The Sounds of the Germs", which includes previously unreleased songs Darby wrote, BUT with Shane West on vocals! Terrible...

Anyways, here's the movie. I managed to find it on youtube. Only half of it is in sequence, but the important part (the music) is there. Enjoy!

Last week I talked about how growing up in South Central, the majority of punk bands were street punk bands (ala "The Casualties"). It was the big thing growing up, and every show had a bunch of bands singing songs like "drinking 40oz's Oi!Oi!Oi!" or whatever. I would be lying if I said I wasn't into it. At age 14, it was the only punk I knew and it was all around me, no matter where I tried to turn to. The Moral Decay (who for some reason changed their name to "LA's Moral Decay") was undoubtedly the most popular one in the backyards of South Central LA. Whenever they were on the flyer, kids were sure to come. Hell, even to this day, if you put them on a flyer in LA the show is sure to get packed full of street punk kids with dyed hair and studded leather jackets. Although this band technically broke up a few years ago, some of the band members in this band are in other bands that you're more likely to recognize. The guitarist, Eddie, is now the drummer for Poliskitzo, while the vocalist, Jose, was the vocalist for Peligro Social and is now doing full time in Ruleta Rusa. I'm not the biggest fan of this band, but for historical purposes (and if you want to know what the biggest thing in South Central was when I was growing up)you should give it a listen.

This was their reunion show last year. It's not the best quality video, but at least it shows how die-hard their fans are:

What a coincidence that this Suicide Monday lands on Valentines Day! It's actually pretty perfect if you think about it... Anyways, this week we got Christian Death's "Only Theatre of Pain", which I think is an instant classic. It's got a goth sound, but it has some punk elements too, mainly due to Rikk Agnew (of Adolescents fame) being on guitar. The singing is another thing that stands out to me from this band. Rozz Williams has this half interested/lazy vocal style. It almost sounds like he's sleepy or something. But, don't let that stop you! It actually goes very well with the music. I gotta say, Romeo's Distress is easily my favorite song on this album. Catchy and melodic with a twist of Adolescents. This was released in 1982 and the vocalist, Rozz Williams, committed suicide by hanging himself in his apartment in 1998.

Hit Me Back is one of those bands you really had to see live to appreciate. They we're full of energy, fast, and exciting to watch. I first saw them play at one of my first punk shows when I was about 15 and I was blown away! At the time, almost every local band was a street punk band, ala "The Casualties". So to see a band playing hardcore thrash-punk at the time was really refreshing. Anyways, I bought this record at a record store called "Trash City Records" back in 2003, I do believe. That record store is no longer there, but I still own this record, which is great because it is easily my favorite material released by these guys! It's catchy, fast, and energetic. To me, it is reminiscent of the Jellyroll Rockheads, but you can have a listen and make up your own mind:

Hit Me Back broke up in 2008, right before Asko was formed. Today, Abe (the lead vocalist in this band) does full time duty in Tuberculosis as the bass player.

This is the Rayos X Sufrimiento tape. Recorded at the same time as the 7 inch, it was released late last year. I'm not really sure how many copies of this tape were released, but I believe it was no more than 200. No worries though, as this is getting repressed into it's own 7 inch and will be released some time in March. This ep has a re-recorded version of No Conformo, which was originally released on the first demo in 2009.


Monday, February 7, 2011



I'm feeling a bit depressed today, so I've decided to create SUICIDE MONDAYS. basically, for the next few Mondays, I'm going to upload some dark wave/goth/post punk/punk bands with members that have committed suicide. Pretty fun, don't ya think? So, what better band to start off with, than Warsaw? Warsaw, as you may or may not know, was Joy Division before they were called Joy Division. I do believe that this was suppose to be their debut album, but for some reason it was scrapped and they changed their name. In any case, this is some great stuff. It's got some really great raw energy and has a heavier punk influence than their later stuff (which is also great). This was released in 1978 and the singer, Ian Curtis, committed suicide in 1980 by hanging himself.

Wednesday, February 2, 2011



La Voz was an awesome hardcore band from The Valley (which is in the north part of LA). To me, La Voz has a sound similar to a cross between "GRB" and "Los Crudos". It's fast, uncompromising, and sung in Spanish. They were real active about a year ago, but have since broken up. I believe they have one final show coming up, but I have no idea when or if it even will happen. This 7 inch was released along with the "Rayos X" 'Mi Desorden 7 inch, and the "Tuberculosis" 'Disfrasandose' 7 inch. I've always felt that this ep was severely underrated, as most people just focused on those other 2 releases. Still, this is an undisputed modern hardcore classic. Take a listen, then weep quietly as it sinks in that these guys are no more...



So apparently, this band has not broken up. I've been recently told that they're actually in the middle of recording for a new release. Here's hoping it comes true, because I haven't seen these guys in months!!


Tuesday, February 1, 2011



Ok, so let's get on with some music... or should I say noise! Kruel is a D-Beat/crust band that is based out of Cudahy (a small district in LA). Although it is based out of Cudahy, the members come from all other parts of town. Originally, this band started around 2008 and I actually played their fist show with them when I was in Asko and Vakraant (their fist show was Vakraant's last... kinda passing the torch there!). Anyways, if you've ever seen them play live, you should know that they put on a great live show, mainly due to their very energetic singer. If you're a fan of Disclose, Anti-Cimex, or raw punk in general, you should definitely check this out! Oh, and on a side note, I recorded the Dis-demo for them back in 2009 for 50 bux! What a steal! Hahaha!

Here's the Terror Tape:


and here's the Dis-Demo:

I don't think I could have picked a better time to post what is undeniably a really good local band from LA, Tuberculosis. The band consists of members that have been active in the punk scene quite a while (it features ex-members of Hit Me Back, Asko, The Beatings, and Resist and Exist). Their sound can be best compared to bands like Dezerter or Bannlyst, but accompanied with raspy, angry female vocals. In their more recent shows, their sound has shifted to a more anarcho-punk sound, rather than these more hardcore punk sounding releases. I would say somewhat more akind to Dirt, but not quite there yet. Any way, the demo and 7 inch are great, so here they are for your listening pleasure:


Disfrasandose EP:

Tuesday, January 18, 2011



Vakraant was basically the first band I was ever in. It was a Hardcore, D-Beat inspired punk band that tried to pull all our hardcore influences into one. At the time we were listening to a lot of Kaaos, Discharge, MG-15, and Mob 47. This band was started when we were all just about 15 (almost 10 years ago). At the time, many of us didn't know how to play our instruments and it shows in these recordings. The solos are horrible in my opinion and many of the songs have clear mistakes in them. I don't know, maybe I'm just being too harsh on ourselves. In any case, this is the band that basically preceded Rayos X, as both Kaye and I were in this band. We played a lot of shows, got incredibly drunk at all of them (to the point of forgetting songs in the middle of the set), and had some good times and bad times. This CD was released in 2009 by SMYT Records and it was limited to about 70 copies or so. Enjoy!

Saber M (which stands for "Sexy Ass Bitches Eating Raw Meat". Clever, huh?) are the local heroes in their hometown of Huntington Park (which is a sub-city in Los Angeles). They play Japanese inspired pogo punk and really make the kids dance every time they play. They used to be way more active in the scene, but have since slowed down due to their guitarist/vocalist's departure to the marines. If you're a fan of Shit-Faced, Discocks, Tom and The Boot Boys, etc... then you'll dig this.

This video looks a bit old, but it's one of the few I found on youtube. You can also see more Saber M in Fronteras Desarmadas Videozine Episode 2:

There is no way i can let another week pass by without mentioning one of the few Spanish all girl punk bands from the 80's, Las Vulpess. The band consists of four women which prove that you dont have to have a dick to write music or give a fuck of how they may be perceived by others. This is well proven by their debut 7" 'Me Gusta Ser Una Zorra' (translation: I like being a slut). When this 7" debut back in 1983, it was considered controversial, due to the fact that WOMEN were saying they like being sluts (unlike men in male bands that always talk about the subject without it being taboo). This album may be short, as it is only 2 songs, but it holds its place in punk history for breaking so many barriers.

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along:

si tú me vienes hablando de amor...
qué dura es la vida, cual caballo me guía
permíteme que te dé mi opinión
mira, imbécil, que te den por culo.

me gusta ser una zorra,
me gusta ser una zorra,
me gusta ser una zorra,
eh, oh, ah, ah,
ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,... ¡cabrón!

prefiero masturbarme yo sola en mi cama
antes que acostarme con quien me hable del mañana,
prefiero joder con ejecutivos
que te dan la pasta y luego vas al olvido.

me gusta ser una zorra,
me gusta ser una zorra,
me gusta ser una zorra,
eh, oh, ah, ah,
ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,... ¡cabrón!

dejando ahora mi profesión (¡zorraaa!)
te pido un deseo de todo corazón,
quiero meter un pico en la polla
a un cerdo carroza llamado lou reed...

me gusta ser una zorra,
me gusta ser una zorra,
me gusta ser una zorra,
eh, oh, ah, ah,
ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,... ¡cabrón!

In 2005, Las Vulpess went back to the studio to officially record all the songs they have. For your listening pleasure I have also included those recording here:

Everybody knows Poliskitzo. After all, I just talked about them last week. But do you know La Banda Ya Basta, the band that originated Poliskitzo? All 3 current members of Poliskitzo were in Ya Basta and once you hear it, you can immediately tell. All the signature Poliskitzo elements are there. The melodic vocals, the rock n' roll influence, and the great energy. If anything, the only difference between Poliskitzo and Ya Basta is that Ya Basta is more fast paced than Poliskitzo. Nonetheless, these are some killer recordings and a great piece of LA punk history.

Here's the demo:

And here is Ya Basta Live at Westchester Sports Bar & Grill

Asko was a band I was in back in 2008. A lot has been said about this tape and it has been hosted on countless other blogs, so I thought I would give an inside perspective on this band, what it meant, and why it died out almost as quickly as it started. At the time when the band started, I had just left Vakraant (my old crusty d-beat band of 6 years). It was created by 3 friends who had nothing better to do and it was really done in a hurry. In fact, most of the songs we had were written within about a week or two. We were influence by bands like THE STALIN, RATOS DE PORAO, and RIP. It was Abe on bass, Gaby on drums, and I was on guitar and vocals. There was really no rhyme or reason to anything we did musically. Gaby and I wanted to play faster, while Abe constantly wanted to play slower. In a way, that kind of helped to balance the music, as without Abe we would've just been a noisy mess. The tape demo was recorded within the month (including a song we could never play live), and the rest is, as they say, history. It was the first release on Silenzio Statico (although back then, that didn't mean shit) and I do believe that to this day, it's still in print. Everything was done quickly and in the end we only played about 12 shows before calling it quits and forming our own separate bands. Gaby and Abe formed Tuberculosis (a name we had messed around with after Abe actually got Tuberculosis!), while Kaye and I went on to form Rayos X. So that's it. It was band that lived fast, played fast, and died young. It was made out of the frustration and boredom that we all felt. It was fun while it lasted, but we all had to move on. To this day, everyone always asks me about it, so I decided to do a post on it. Hopefully this answers everyone's questions.

Here's some videos I uploaded to youtube (I think it's our last show). It's a little dark and I'm a little drunk, but it's all good:

And here's the only tape we ever released:

Ok, so next Wednesday Bellicose minds will be playing in Long Beach. I don't need to tell you how awesome The Bellicose Minds are. If you're any kind of fan of punk, goth, or dark wave you should already know and have marked your calendar for this event. In case you never heard The Bellicose Minds (and shame on you if you haven't!), I have included their demo tape for your listening pleasure:


Here's the flyer for the show:


If you're in town, roll thru, have a beer, and have some fun.
