Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm mariano:

I always thought it was a thing for US hardcore bands not to look too hardcore in general: so many of them just wore t-shirts an jeans and had a variety of hairstyles, usually short, but there was no shortage of long hair either.
Avatar 1:24pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

GI gigs were crucial to this young Rev's intangible development. Insane fun, always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Rich in Washington:

right on, mariano: I don't know about the East coast, but it seemed like it wasn't until the mid-80s that hardcore developed a really rigid uniform look.
  1:26pm Chris Steel:

Great to hear Tom talking about his friend and band mate, John Stabb. I hope this is cathartic for you, Tom. Much love from the UK. Long live the clown prince, avenging punk godfather. Long live Stabb!!!
Avatar 1:26pm Chris from DC:

Yep, and Black Market Baby too.
Avatar 1:26pm đ¢ ÞäŦ:

@mariano: that's the way it was in PA where I grew up, jeans, T-shirt, short hair.
Avatar 1:27pm Chris from DC:

That's yep Rev.
Avatar 1:27pm Cecile:

Most of the bands started out looking really hardcore, but as soon as they either graduated from high school or heard the Stooges, they let a lot of that stuff go. The audiences were more fashion addicted than the bands in general.
Avatar 1:27pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

The opening riff to BLENDING IN remains one of the top moments in rock 'n roll history. I HAVE SPOKEN.
Avatar 1:27pm Cecile:

and except for certain bands's shows in lower MI/Detroit, the audiences were pretty half ass about that too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Rich in Washington:

I remember seeing cool, somewhat prominent bands come into town and it was refreshing to see that they didn't look at all how I'd imagine them - none of the punk accoutrement you would think. Just regular dudes or gals playing on stage.
Avatar 1:28pm đ¢ ÞäŦ:

to be honest though, if your hair was short back then, you stood out like a turd in a punch bowl. So it didn't take a lot to look punk
Avatar 1:28pm Cecile:

People used to call me Cecil the Seasick Seaserpent when I was a kid. It was the only nickname I liked because I liked Cecil.
Avatar 1:32pm Cecile:

people don't remember how mad punks got when bands did silly covers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm mariano:

This is just based on my subjective memory, but the first US band I remember going out of their way to look hardcore was Rancid, with the studded leather jackets and mohawks.
Avatar 1:32pm Cecile:

OH! got it.

At one point, seemingly everyone in the scene(s) worked at Olsson's, packing boxes & etc..
Avatar 1:34pm đ¢ ÞäŦ:

The cooler groups never bothered with looks. I remember being put off by GBH with all the spikey hair and shit.
Avatar 1:34pm Cecile:

I watched the Meat Puppets completely jerk around an audience of hardcore kids. It was awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Cecile - Was that from the Beany and Cecil cartoon?

Meat Puppets were a band full of Stabbs.

you know as much as I like the later albums for being more melodic, I always hated how produced they sound. I like the crackly energy of the early EPs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm mariano:

I don't really fault the UK bands for sporting "the look" though: music scenes, for whatever complex sociological reasons, have always been more tribal (for lack of a better term) in the UK in their identification, which goes back to the days of the mods and rockers. There were/are definite looks that go with being a skinhead, punk, mod, suedehead, etc, each with its own class/social/political associations. I remember back in the 90s arguing with an English friend of mine (and bandmate) who insisted that the Ramones couldn't be a punk band because of the long hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm mariano:

My first big arena concert was Ratt with Bon Jovi opening! Still have a soft spot for Warren Di Martini's soloing!
  1:55pm Lyle:

Interesting that you played Voivod. 1992 was my actual last year of any kind of touring activity. My age started to betray me. Actually my embouchure collapsed and my lips wouldn't purse. Makes it hard to play the trombone, I'll tell you that! Haven't been much of a kisser since, either, though my wife would tell you differently. Sweet, sweet Edna. In '92 I was playing 4th 'bone for Paul Anka and we shared a bill with Voivod at Toad's Place in New Haven. Anyway, I was feeling a bit blue as my medical issues were hampering my ability to "blatt," which is when a 'bone player distorts the lowest notes for dramatic effect. Anka loves blatting and he was berating me nightly and threatening to can me. Voivod's bass player (name?) took me aside and smoked a cigarette with me in the green room. It was a curious tasting Canadian tobacco of some sort. At any rate, my playing radically improved after that - so much so that Anka gave me an extended solo during "Having My Baby." The crowd went nuts. I played only four shows after that. Miss those days.

Nice tribute, Tom! LOVE Love The GIs! Stabb did talk A BOATLOAD. First time y'all played Gainesville he was hoarse, communicating by note writing. Reconnected for GI show at Fest October 2015 & Stabb was hoarse again - talking via notes! Classic. XO
  2:21pm Chris Steel:

He's being pretty brave, speaking so soon after John's passing. These past 12 days have been really tough, and I barely knew John. It is great hearing these stories about Stabb, though. Shame it's under such shitty circumstances...
  2:24pm Chris Steel:

The CD, John Stabb “Riding For Candyland, 1991-1993″ is pretty amazing if ya wanna hear some of the post G.I. stuff, too. Give it a listen!

Previously unreleased recordings of John Stabb with 2 of his post GI projects is available as a limited edition CD. Proceeds go for John Benefit Fund. johnstabb.com...

Also available on iTunes....itunes.apple.com...
Avatar 3:37pm Diane Kamikaze:

@Chris Steel, not for a download per se, but there will be an archive stream available in about 2 hours that does not get taken down. On the WFMU home page on the right side is the heading RECENTLY ARCHIVED. It should be ready in a bit and then it can be listened to whenever. You can always use the search tool to look for the show as well. Tom and John have both separately previously been on the show, so look for a 2016 appearance and it should be there.... Thanks for listening, Rest In Peace, John!
