“Strange Tales From The Doc” #5 Yes, let’s put an end to the rumors and guessing. D.I. stands for Disruptive Influence. Trust your Doc…

“See why D.I. was one of my favorite bands to see “back in the day” (yeah, “back in the day”?) Who came up with that? Same douche that coined “Old School”? Read on!”
DI (aka Distruptive Influence) at The Fenders 1986


Yes, let’s put an end to the rumors and guessing. D.I. stands for Disruptive Influence. Trust your Doc…

Now although I took this picture The Fenders in Long Beach my story is actually from when D.I. played the Olympic. It was right when their debut 12”ep “s/t” (aka Richard Hung Himself) came out. I was standing off to the left of the MASSAVE pit (The Olympic would have thousands of people back then on a regular basis) D.I. had played a couple songs and Casey brought out a box of their brand new 12”. He tossed a few out to the rabid crowd down front [who doesn’t want a free record right?]. He then hucked one like a frisbee off to the right and it soon turned into a record boomarang and started making it’s way towards me! I’ve always been tall (and very handsome) so I jumped with all my might and the next thing you 
 know, I have the new D.I. 12” in my hands!

I’ve seen DI many times all over Southern California. Always a GREAT band to see live for sure and this was no exception. Casey Royer with Rik Agnew playing like a possessed demon! A winning combination. When D.I. was on their game they were one of the best bands to see. Great band then and now!

New Punk Book Out: “Poems About Love and Punk Rock” by Joe McNally from Voodoo Glow Skulls/The Penetrators

“Poems About Love and Punk Rock
by Joe McNally
“Poems About Love and Punk Rock” By Joe McNally
“Poems About Love and Punk Rock” is a collection of short stories written over a period of several years. The stories are centered around the 90’s punk scene and the zaniness of the touring life- but mainly deal with issues like love, and friendship- hope and redemption. All short stories were performed at open mics and poetry readings as spoken-word performance pieces. They were designed to be read aloud and read in a way that a simple, smart and honest man would tell a story to a friend.
Brutally honest at times, whimsical and even sentimental at others, all stories crackle off the page and paint vivid images into the mind of the reader. Not all of these images are pretty. There’s tales of suicide, drug addiction, street fights and broken hearts- standard punk rock fare. But the way the stories are told is pretty. They are all painted with a sympathetic tone towards the good side of life- the positive side of life. The poems are small stories in themselves, and each one carries its own message of hope, or pain, or joy. This book is designed to be read in bits and pieces- simple, exciting stories told verbally over the years countless times- and now finally cemented into one format.

Punk Author Joe McNally
Joe McNally is a native of Riverside, California. When he was 17 he joined The Voodoo Glow Skulls and took off on tour. The band toured extensively in the underground punk scene eventually signed with Epitaph Records. Joe played horn on the five albums recorded for the Epitaph Records. He also played, recorded and toured with variety of punk acts all throughout the 1990’s. Joe earned a BA in Psychology from UCR in 2004 and a Teaching Credential from CSUSB in 2007. Joe has been playing and studying Jazz music exclusively over the last few years. Joe is clean and sober.
