Excellent! Brings back memories of my first hardcore punk show, the Kennedys (with supporting German band, Napalm) in Stuttgart, Dec 82. That was was not only Mrs. Rock's first punk experience, it was her last  ;D "Too Drunk to Fuck" was one of my favorite punk songs.

In 1977 for about six weeks I was based in San Francisco playing up and down the coast in jazz clubs with David "Fathead" Newman.  But, the Dead Kennedys were getting popular and playing in clubs like the Mabuhay Gardens and similar venues.  There was a small group of bands with names like Single Bullet Theory and Grassy Knoll at the same time.  As far as I know, the Kennedys was the only one to survive into the post punk period.

Interesting flashback. Thanks. I hadn't heard of those other assassination inspired groups. I was in Ohio then (1977-80),  beginning to experience the Akron sound (The Rubber City Rebels, Devo, The Waitresses, Rachel Sweet) and personalities from the city like Chrissie Hynde before the Pretenders (she was a photographic model for a friend of mine).

:o Wow, would have loved to have heard them back in the 80s (and Blondie that Nik mentioned in another thread), though 82 was bit early for me, and foreign bands playing in Belgrade were few, far and between even in the 80s. Thankfully local punk and hardcore scene was really strong in late 80s early 90s. When I was about 14 - 16 years old I've been to dozens and dozens of gigs (and still have the scars to prove it 8)), almost weekly. And there were plenty of girls at those, and fine ones at that, sorry to hear Mrs Rock wasn't into it :(  One of the most fun and carefree periods that I can remember  ;D ;D

I've got a few scars too. Those mosh pits were brutal. I usually ended up bloodied. At the Kennedys' concert, my first punk experience, not knowing what to expect, I was positioned dead center, a short way from the stage, when the band took the stage and the music exploded. I felt like a ball in a pinball machine  ;D  But I soon got the hang of it, enjoyed the physical contact.

That was, for me, 1982-83. But I was a geezer then, 33, 34 :D  Saw these great bands:

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft
Jethro Tull
Black Flag
Minutemen
Dead Kennedys
Charged G.B.H.
UK Subs
Gun Club
Bad Brains
Black Sabbath
Mother's Finest
and a half dozen German hardcore bands

Came across this somewhere and knew I needed to hear it at least once:



I really rather enjoyed it. The music, the dub, is quite good.
