"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Options June 5, 2020: NO TREND SPECIAL EVENT
Confrontational and righteously set against the faddish ways of youth subcultures, Ashton, Maryland's No Trend skirted the eighties DC scene with their negging anti-hardcore and nihilistic rejection of punk. Harshly contrasting with straight-edge, the band further distanced themselves with a sound informed by industrial, noise and art rock. Drag City has re-issued a box-set of the band's earliest material, and John Allen Zooms in with the producers, and some former band members to discuss the project.

Collectors take note, this is a limited edition 7" 45 that comes with a book and a poster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am Handy Haversack:

MacNulsh! Yes, pal, it's our twenty-first anniversary. To celebrate so far, Kate woke herself up with nervousness over getting band stuff dealt with for Bandcamp Friday (David IL, expect an e-mail!) and has gone back to sleep -- whereas I stayed up till 3 last night and dealt with our Bandcamp purchases then and so am only now staggering into consciousness.

Not sure what we'll do today. Maybe find another protest. Maybe just stay in and listen to the storms.

Thanks, Yeti Bob! Maybe there's a John Allen exception for global pandemics to the brass band rule?

I glisten every morning. Mostly on too much coffee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am Handy Haversack:

Wow, thanks, friends. Emotions are a little raw lately, that's for sure, which is what I'm going to say is the reason I'm tearing up from your well wishes.

I'll just say that Kate and I were kids when we got together. I was a total mess. Raised by wolves. Full of grief. And we have grown together over these years -- though she started way ahead of me maturity-wise and still maintains a comfortable lead! One thing we have been good at is finding good communities. QED.

Nulshomatic, not I but Kate is on Bandcamp. If you search Creek and Kills, you'll be in the right place. Trust: my musical stylings are best confined to *seriously* boozified karaoke rooms.
  9:46am JakeGould:

@AmiAd: I really don’t like speculating on stuff like that. Just I have strong aversion to blind loyalty of any kind. Jews and idolatry don’t mix.
  9:47am JakeGould:

@Handy: Belated huzzahs for you and Kate being together for 21 years!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Jake! How were things down your way yesterday? Kate said Greenpoint did not seem particularly curfewed as she walked back from (masked, distant) band practice a little past 8. WITH street garbage cans intact!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am Ken From Hyde Park:

Congratulations, Handy & Kate! I slept in super late in your honor.
  9:52am ami ad:

Thank you glisteners,appreciate the cooperation.
  9:57am JakeGould:

@Handy: On my side? Well, I will tell you that there are organized protests in Bay Ridge, but there is clear attempts to sabotage things to make them “All Lives Matter” and even “Blue Lives Matter.” Like groups and people nobody has ever heard of announcing a protest and then a few hours before suddenly the language of an update changes to being what I just described. The reality is this part of Brooklyn leans conservative. And there are definitely people out to clearly sabotage any liberal efforts for anything.

There are legit protestors organizing here though. And their peaceful protests are fine. But it’s so scattershot it’s better for me to just get on a train, head to Downtown Brooklyn and know there will solidly be something there.
  9:59am ami ad:

Hmm,I think I need some thc to deal with this.
  10:01am doctorrock:

I spent $300 on No Trend stuff for my birthday - what does that mean?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am YETI BOB:

@doctorrock: It means No Trend had a pretty good day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02am Handy Haversack:

Ha, Ken! The honor is all ours!

Ugh, Jake, that's horrible. I wonder if it's similar in Staten Island -- lots of Blue Lives Matter flags flying there.

I'm still not quite feeling subway brave. Maybe that's stupid considering that I'm now perfectly willing to be in crowds again.

As much as I like the cultural resources — and general open-mindedness — that NYC offers, let’s face it: This city is disgusting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20am YETI BOB:

@ami ad: I was just about to leave but I'll answer that! When I'm cycling I pick my own routes. I avoid congested streets and know a lot of alternate routes - not trapped in a can in a tube underground. But cities NEED public transit! Cars are not the answer! We just need a much, much better system - the systems in place are ancient and we can do so much better now.
  10:20am JakeGould:

If there were something like a high speed train between NYC and — let’s say — Buffalo that stopped in cities/towns along the way I think most people would just move out of NYC completely and deal with a commute.

  10:26am JakeGould:

The main reason I rode a bike in NYC is I grew up near the beach in Brighton Beach so I rode the crappy/scary boardwalk that existed in the 1970s/1980s. And there is a great bike line that covers all of Ocean Parkway. So past having to deal with Sephardic rich-kid a-holes around Avenue X and stuff like that, it was a pleasant ride.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28am Handy Haversack:

I don't even know how to ride a bike. But I'm good at canoeing? I'm not sure I'm practical on these matters.

@ami ad, we had to go into Manhattan this week and will have to again on Monday. First time since mid-March. We took the ferry and walked, which I think is likely what we'll do Monday, too, if possible.

Good morning, Hi John.
  10:31am JakeGould:

@AmiAd: I think somewhere like Arizona or New Mexico. Otherwise in NY State I would just generally be open minded about what places exist upstate.

Unless you can truly choose where you live in New York City, it’s just endless compromise meaning you have someone like me living in a lunkhead paradise like Bay Ridge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33am Handy Haversack:

Woods! Woods! That is so nice! Wow, really, thanks. I am really touched. I am going to tell Kate right now, and it's going to make her morning! We'll be seeing you for a quarantini come Sheila time!

@ami ad, we had a friend on a bike killed by a driver (no charges filed) at Bowery and Delancey twelve years ago, and any idea I had of learning how to ride a bike in the city died also.
  10:33am JakeGould:

I actually used to live in Park Slope in the early 1990s. Union Street near 8th Avenue. Very cheap rent. And Boeum Hill on Atlantic Avenue. Rent not that cheap but the extra cost was made up by all of the public transportation available in that neighborhood; could get anywhere in NYC in less than 30 minutes.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am David (in London):

morphe - I think these boards can get rather obsessive if you let them. I mean, they are effectively our social life at the moment, but I decided to take a leaf from John from Florham Park's book and ease back on the pedal a little.

Do you know EH Gombrich's 'A Little History of the World'? That's a truly superb book for teaching history to small kids. Amazing guy, too.

Glad you are all enjoying the A-35.

I feel you, Jeffinc. We are updating Kate's band's website and taking down all the planned shows and putting up a statement about how much the band misses them and everything sucks donkey balls these days.

Holy shit, I bought my first LP at Joe's Record Paradise in 1984. Damaged.

@Handy it's absolute crap. However, I'm starting to see glimmers of hope in Philly - end of June, events are tentatively being scheduled and I'm living for em

@danjoseph, what a fun coincidence— it’s me, the woman who shot the back photo for Head Down,Hands Out.

The zine referred to was probably WDC Period, which John Stabb used to write a very amusing column in

was a dozen dead roses the tune with Lydia?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Handy Haversack:

Thanks for this, JA -- it went too fast! Thanks, Skeleton.

And thanks, Allenites, for all the kind wishes. Really does mean the world to have a place like this to come to.

@SFW that photo doesn't appear to be credited...remind me who you are?

Funny, but Jordan is my neighbor. I ran into him on Grand Street the other day. I had no idea he was involved in this...
  11:57am PJ:

@danjoseph - are you the Dan Joseph from 9353? That's a band that could use a retrospective - sadly absent from the DC punk histories many people compile, but really one of the best. Those Adult Swim compilations are hard to find.

Thanks, JA!

The Turkington/No Trend/Flipper connections make all kinds of sense.

SFW @danjoseph re: lack of credit/typical. I’m also one of the contributing photogs listed in the back of Banned in DC book, first name begins with S, last name begins with W, if you have it.
