In the hell for leather tradition of three chord sleaze n' roll, The Loudmouths spit out angst ridden, female charged power trash, booze soaked thrash that taps into the energy of early 80s hardcore, and leaves behind a trail of blown ears and broken beer bottles.

Good, fun 90's punk rock from Southern California's own Guttermouth. Their original debut LP was released in 1991. This is the 1996 re-release which includes their first two EPs.
I Used To Be 20

punk isn't about getting a serious sociopolitical message across; it's strictly a way to have fun, and their idea of fun is being as crude, tasteless, and offensive as possible. Thriving on shock value, the Bulemics love sick, twisted, dark-humored lyrics -- Satanism, drug abuse, suicide, promiscuity, and violent crime are the sort of things that they routinely joke about in their songs.
Unfortunately for me this is so far the only Bulemics record I've heard. It's great, tho!

From the first line of this CD, "I love you but I fuck your friends", you know what you're getting yourself in to. Granted, with the band name Butt Trumpet and The title Primitive Enema one would assume it won't sneak up on you. Great, rude punk rock. For a little band info, here's their words:
BUTT TRUMPET is an ORIGINAL.
We try to be an original punk rock band in a world full of clones.
BUTT TRUMPET was originally founded in 1991 by THOM BONE. Many former members of the project have spawned other great projects because of BT (an example: BETTY BLOWTORCH was 3/4 of a BT lineup that Thom built).
Our ONLY influence is life.
We copy nobody on purpose, ever (unless we're paying tribute via a cover song).
We are considered by many to be "classic punk" but it is there that any similarities end.
We also throughout our history have been the "first" to do many things. Some examples:
The first major label record to have an internet address on the cover.
The least expensive major label record ever made ("Primitive Enema" - $700 including pizza).
The only other punk band ever signed to EMI other than the Sex Pistols.
The first punk band to consistently have two bass players.
BUTT TRUMPET is the personal project of THOM BONE (and now, also KLARK KUNT), and has taken many forms over the years. It is NOT a band so much as it is a VISION.

I never understood the draw of these silly things until I actually started this. Needless to say I was hooked immediately. It's hard to explain the pride (and yes, the power) I feel when I see someone from the other side of the globe is downloading music I've put out there. Weird, I know. But it gets me thru the day. Some 500 posts later and I'm still enjoying the hell out of this. I don't think I've missed a day since. Which brings me to the topic of this post. We had to know I couldn't keep this pace up forever. After all, I'm old... remember? Also it's getting harder to upload without eventually losing the files (most of my posts are dead). And that doesn't even consider the fact that I've completely neglected checking out other blogs for new music for my damn self! So I've decided to take a short break from new posts. We'll call that break 'February'. I'm going to spend the month downloading new stuff as well as attempting to re-up some of my dead links. So it's going to get a little quiet around here next month, but don't worry, like a bad penny, I'll be back.
Tattooed Corpse were a great band out of early 90's Portland. They released two 7"s and two full lengths between 1990 and 1994. I've only heard the 7"s but would love to hear the others. So much so that I've added them to my wish list. Can anyone out there help?

The Lunachicks were a hard-rockin' punk outfit from NYC. Forming in the mid 80's they released this debut full length in 1990. Several more releases followed throughout the 90's, but I still think this remains their best.

More old punks. This one might anger some people too, but I like it! Sex Pistol Steve Jones got together with Duff & Matt from Guns N' Roses and John Taylor from everyone's favorite hardcore band, Duran Duran. The result is a really good rock/punk album.

Speaking of old punks (and weren't we?) what's a bunch of punks to do once their original 80's bands are done and they've found themselves getting older? Well, these guys formed Iron Prostate. Guys from bands such as Ed Gein's Car & False Prophets and others put out only a couple records in the early 90's. Great humorous punk rock with topics we sadly can all relate to. If you checked out and liked my earlier post from Aging Youth Gang, you'll love this.

So here's another "acquired taste" post. The Go-Devils were an early 90's band from Atlanta. Punk, but not hardcore. It took a few listen to really get in to it, but I did. I love this CD. You should give it a couple listens as well.

Another matter of personal taste today. San Diego's Deadbolt dub themselves "The Scariest Band In The World". I saw them several times in the early 90's and they always entertained. Absolutely silly psycho-billy. This is their debut release from 1993. I apologize in advance.

Ok, so here's one that might divide the crowd. The Skatenigs started in Austin, TX as a Ministry support band. They mixed industrial, metal, hardcore and yes, even rap, with large amounts of drugs and alcohol. What resulted was two full length releases and a few E.P.'s. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I sure enjoy it.

Damn, the early 90's were LOUD! Cop Shoot Cop hailed from New York with two basses and no guitars. I got to see these guys in a small club and it blew my mind. The drummer built a whole contraption around him with all sorts of metal noisemakers. I definitely thought it was a unique approach... and better yet, painfully loud!

I Killed My Mother And My Dad Did Not Approve
I trust all of you, like me, imbibed far too much last night and are feeling it today. Good for you!
As the calendar turns to 2013 we are going to turn our blog calendar to the 1990's. Many argue when, or even IF hardcore died. Certainly hardcore's 'heyday' was somewhere around '80-'85. But good music could still be found by the time the 90's rolled around. And I don't mean the stuff that from Seattle that changed the musical landscape entirely. Not that all of that stuff is bad, mind you. Just over-played. Or at the very least, overblown. I'm also not saying any of it will never find its way here. But this month I'm going to try to focus on the stuff that still remained radio-unfriendly. Is it 'hardcore', 'post-hardcore', 'punk', or something else entirely? Dunno. Don't care. I like it. So let's dig in, shall we?
