“Strange Tales From The Doc” #21… September 1988 Stiff Little Fingers at The Variety Arts Center Los Angeles, Ca.


Strange Tales From The Doc” #19… September 1988 Stiff Little Fingers at The Variety Arts Center Los Angeles, Ca
This was the gig that me and ALL my buddies couldn’t wait for! We all loved SLF and it was the first time since 1981 [I think?] that they came back to the U.S. All original members with the exception of the drummer who at that time had quit the band to join the Red Rockers. Actually Stiff Little Fingers song “Wait and See” was about his departure from the band to join the Red Rockers.
Anyway, back to the gig. They played with some “metal/hard rock” type of a band called Lifeline (no, that’s not it…) I can’t remember. Although I, and the majority of the crowd, didn’t like them at least they were so excited to open up for SLF. They kept going on and on while playing what an honor it was to be there so I cut them some slack. (and no one hunted them down and shaved their heads either)
I’ve seen SLF many times and they are always a great band to see. Imagine a sold out crowd of hundreds of people all singing along to their songs. The air was electric. Even just the way they came onto stage was a pre-mediated plan of energy. Before coming on stage they played one of their songs (I forget which) and got the crowd all amped up. Then they hit the stage and killed it! The crowd went nuts with slammin’, stage diving and singing!
My only regret? Not catching a drum stick the drummer threw out on their last song. It flew inches over my head but I was a little to slow. Would have made a great souvenir if I caught it but at least I have my memories of an amazing gig. Stiff Little Fingers are currently working on an all new full length as I type this. It may ONLY be available from the band so be sure to see this link for more info:

“Strange Tales From the Doc” #11 Big Drill Car/All/Chemical people; Cruz Records night at The Roxy

“Strange Tales From the Doc” #11 Big Drill Car/All/Chemical people; Cruz Records night at The Roxy I forget the date on this one but it must have been early 1990’s. This was the “Cruz Records Night” featuring: Big Drill Car, All and Chemical People. It was an awesome gig! All these bands were totally top notch. The bass players for Big Drill Car, Chemical People and All were some of THE best at the time.

I remember standing in line outside of the Roxy, located on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, Ca, some guy with bleached hair on a motorcycle stopped at the corner at a red light. I thought to myself, “That guy looks like Billy Idol”. Why? Because it was Billy Idol! My wife Crystal and I recently (well a couple years ago now) saw the All/Big Drill Car reunion gig and neither one has lost a step. Big Drill Car stole the show in my opinion but both were amazing. Big Drill Car [ as well as Pegboy] were the two bands I REALLY wanted to sign for my label but never could. Oh well, I’m still one of their biggest fans!

“Strange Tales From The Doc” October 1985 The Dead Kennedys at The de Anza Theatre


October 1985 The Dead Kennedys at The de Anza Theatre


Growing up in Southern California during the early 80’s was a GREAT time! So many amazing bands would play nearly every weekend. This one was in 1985 at The de Anza Theatre in Riverside, Ca.. The Dead Kennedys! I know that Entropy played that night as well. (Another great band that no one has heard of) and I think Love Canal too.


Dead Kennedys, Cease Fire, Love Canal at de Anza Theater,
Riverside, Ca.  1985 
As with all DK’s gigs you KNEW “something” was going to go down. Usually the riot squad would show up and break up the gig before they finished playing. True to form that’s exactly what happned! Dead Kennedys went on and people started ripping out the seats and throwing them all around. I always thought that kind of behavior was stupid. We were only fucking things up for ourselves. Anyway, cops came in and the crowd ran out! But they did get to play several songs and it was WAY better than the night at The Longshoremen’s Ballroom! Now that was a full scale Police Action! Tear gas, Riot Squad, Helicopters and beatings (from the cops)……..Until next time, Doc
