thank YOU
Avatar 10:30am Cecile:

the 80s weren't the 60s, but they still had way more variety in their top 40 than today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting. There was still in early 80s continuity w/ CounterCulture, & a wondering of what / which Style & Culture might emerge...There were still maybe Labels headed by people interested in Music - & soon there'd be MTV & transition into now in which beancounters run everything??...

It was happening in the mid-70s. MTV just threw the suits for a loop until they figured out how to control it.

YES! Solo DLR is definitely one of my favorite guilty pleasures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Planet Tyler:

I think Ive seen the Laughing Hyenas more than any other band besides the Cows and Cop Shoot Cop. Which tells you how much they played.
  11:09am paula pc:

incendiary band live
Avatar 11:09am Cecile:

I saw them a lot, too. I just never got into them. their records were OK.

I always thought Brannon sang way too hard.

man Larissa was the shit.
  11:11am paula pc:

RIP Larissa S
Avatar 11:11am Cecile:

that I agree with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am Planet Tyler:

A friend of mine sang/screamed a lot - nothing like Jim's intensity though - and ended up tearing his throat. So how does Jim still do it...???
Avatar 11:13am Cecile:

Wig! I knew John Burke from that band as a kid.
Avatar 11:13am Cecile:

well, a teen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am Jack Mello:

cool, cecile!
Avatar 11:14am Cecile:

Well, I dunno. John might have had a lot of throat surgery over the years, or just knew how to take care of his voice. It is a mystery.
Avatar 11:15am Cecile:

Great kid. Just hungry for knowledge of all underground bands.
Avatar 11:17am MenfussMike:

John Brannon practiced gargling razor blades. that was his trick.
