A couple of weeks ago, it all went down in Tucson, AZ at the Southwest Terror Fest. Our comrade in video Frank Huang aka PITFULLOFSHIT was on hand to capture this heavy four day fest. Now check the raging footage from Pinkish Black, Kylesa, Demon Lung, Ancestors, Subrosa, Landmine Marathon, Transient, Aseethe, Theories, Children of God, Sex Prisoner, ACxDC, Ladybird and Early Graves!
Take it down a little slower, or just get a little weirder…better yet, get a little more FLIPPER. This bunch of sonic freaks crossed all boundaries in the 80′s. I never understood how me and my friends were so into this band in the 80′s because their music went against the norm of our tastes. We all had their album in our collection, plus we all had their logo hand drawn on our jeans. Looking back on it, FLIPPER were way before their time and were willing to create music that was different from the hardcore of the time, which made than heavier and more original than many bands that were on the scene. Thanks to Target Video we can witness them in their full glory. So check out the demented side of American Hardcore and watch FLIPPER – Live Target Video 1980-81 – this band still rules!
Hey hey all weirdos if you have not heard GAG from Olympia (WA) they are the SHIT! This gang of punks are on a nationwide tour – make sure to check them out. In the meantime, CVLT Nation’s comrade Transylvanian Recordings captured their most recent gig in Oakland. From the look of things the show was mad fun, so since you most likely were not there peep the video! Next time they hit Vancouver I will be on hand for sure…GAG Rules!
If you read CVLT Nation on the regular, you know that we represent the Bay Area hard. The reason why is that they have so many amazing bands, plus I used to live there so it has a special place in my black heart. Our comrade Kevin Hobbs just sent CVLT Nation some insane live footage featuring Abstracter (who are out of this fucking world good!), Rolling Through The Universe (PDX), Ninth Moon Black (Eugene, OR) and Embers. This all took place at RCA/Hot Mess on 10/18/2013. After watching all of these full sets, I think you will feel like I do and wish you were there in person, because this line up was unreal! The word on the street is that the event was put together by Steve & Timm from Embers – good job!
Thanks for checking out the latest installment in my ongoing series focused on covering the heaviest and most devastating of Bands and Artists within the Underground Music Community that travel through The Bay Area. This is a collection of footage that I’ve captured recently at shows on both sides of the bridges in Oakland & San Francisco.
Damn I feel high…but still, pass me my bong so I can inhale some more CYPRESS HILL. In 1991, when I first heard their self-titled album, me and my whole crew were hooked. CYPRESS HILL came on the scene with their own dusted-out sound with sonic THC fumes jumping off of every track. Actually, they were one of the West Coast groups that helped unify both coasts. The imagery that they used captivated the hip hop community of this era. No doubt, CYPRESS HILL spoke the language of the street but they also spoke to the stoner in us all. Today CVLT Nation honors the OG greenthumb warriors with a huge video essay featuring visuals from the early daze of CYPRESS HILL…Stoned is the way of the walk!
