Am I an AT THE DRIVE IN fan? Hell fucking yes!!! Today CVLT Nation is sharing with you one of the sickest shows you will ever find online from this very special band. What makes this footage so off the chain is that AT THE DRIVE IN are performing outside and giving their all on every tune. Once you press play you will not be able to turn away, I promise. If you were in Winston-Salem for this show, please leave a comment! Every time I watch this, it takes me back to 1999 – I wish I was there! Now get your In/Casino/Out ON!
Label: Dischord Records
Growing up in an era that pre-dated the internet meant that sometimes the closest we could get to seeing bands were washed out xerox photos. Me and all my homies had mad love for the DC scene – it didn’t make a difference that it was 3000 miles away from us. One band that never toured out West was VOID and since hearing them on Flex Your Head I was a fan. I enjoyed the FAITH, but it was the other side of the record that I kept on constant rotation. VOID knew how to blend metal and punk better than most bands at the time. Today CVLT Nation celebrates one of the raddest bands to do it during the 80′s: VOID. Peep this full set of them killing shit in Philly…the year was 1983…
’84 Rollins/Kira/Ginn/Stevenson – this is the lineup of BLACK FLAG I saw the most and I never got bored of seeing them! In my book, this is the era that went on to really influence sludge, doom and even grunge. This is also the time when Henry started to come into his own as a performer. Watching them back then was almost like checking out a jazz band because they would totally go off on these tagents. In 1984, BLACK FLAG changed what a hardcore band had to sound like and were expanding minds everywhere. Now peep this intense performance of them wrecking shop in Amherst, Mass in 1984…BLACK FLAG was the shit!
GILA MONSTER JAMBOREE: This gig, January 5, 1985, 100 miles out into the Mojave Desert, was our first “L.A.” gig, first time we’d played on the west coast, part of an airplane tour from Seattle on south. That picture of us “in the back of a Chevy” on the Death Valley ’69 12-inch is also from this trip. The gig was organized by one Stuart Sweezy, now of Amok Press (check it out!), who had this penchant for strange locations — Minutemen and Meat Puppets on a barge on the S.F. Harbor, another desert gig with Einsterzende Neubauten… your ticket entitled you to a map to the gig site which was not handed out until the morning of the show (to prevent scans). Else you could buy a place on one of the buses hired to transport those transported souls with better things to do than cope with the road. The gig started early in the day with Psi-Com, which featured a barefoot Perry Farrell skanking in the sand and waxing poetic. Redd Kross followed, and by the time we went on it was about twilight. These songs were mostly brand new at the time, from the as-yet unreleased Bad Moon Rising LP. We’d waited a long time to make it west, and this was a pretty perfect introduction. Bob Bert was on the drums with us at the time. The cover photo, by someone named Alan Peak, all trails and blurr, sums up the occasion quite well. Band portrait by Naomi Petersen. This video was shot by the folks at Flipside Magazine. After us came the Meat Puppets, who played on into the night as the desert cold set in, under a big ring around the moon.
Check out the new video from CORRECTIONS HOUSE called “Bullets And Graves” from their album Last City Zero, out now on Neurot Recordings. In a time when music is coming out at a rapid rate and lacking depth, this band has flipped the script. I really hope people stop and listen to CORRECTIONS HOUSE, because they are making sonic art that will stand the test of time!
Heavy as FUCK! Gloomy as FUCK! Demented as FUCK! Just some of the thoughts that come to my mind as I watch the visual for the new sonic collaboration between Gnaw Their Tongues & Alkerdeel entitled “Dyodyo Asema”. This video is a perfect interpretation of what you are about to hear and see! CVLT Nation is honored to be premiering this Gnaw Their Tongues & Alkerdeel piece of visual torment. This project was put together to help celebrate the fifth anniversary of Consouling Sounds…CVLT Nation salutes the bands and the label for a job well done!…Pre-Order HERE January 13th is the release date!
I knew that NAILS were over in the UK wrecking shop last week, but now I have video evidence of how fucking off the chain their shows really were! One of our readers, Charlie Holt, sent us the links to the NAILS show at the Underworld in Camden. You can see for yourself that this band is nothing to fuck with… respect due to NAILS and all of the UK fans!
25 years of motherfucking DYSFUNCTION is what EYEHATEGOD has given the world, and they have no plans of stopping! This past weekend they performed in Brooklyn and destroyed St.Vitus. Our comrade
(((UnartigNYC))) was on hand and captured this insane set played to a hungry crowd of EYEHATEGOD fans! Now tune into the Masters of Legalized Confusion! R.I.P. Joey LaCaze, and welcome to their newest member, Aaron Hill (Drums).
I will not say much, because not much is known about Svårmod. Check out their new video “Bli Mork” and let the visual speak for itself! This is a CVLT Nation video premiere – cry black tears & peep Svårmod’s new visual!
