Hold it now...

Look, a lot of these music links are dead, but some still work (eg. Micky Christ), I really need to sober up and figure out what needs to be done. I'm honestly thinking of databasing my collection, but that requires thought, and I'm not too enthustiastic about this.

On the bright side, hoping to get the last gig of Alcoholic White Trash, yes this will be posted. And on another note.... :)

Bad links to copywritten material...

Bloody automated bots, seems we had another link go bad, I just fixed the M-Blanket rip so it seems to be working again. One day I'll go through all the links to see what doesn't work, pls keep me informed.

Update: I suddenly stopped doing any VDRP work, again. Plus my $180 sound card bit it so I got a $40 sound card replacement. I need to find WaveLab V5 as I seem to have lost my copy of it, so I now need to re-install V6 of this application. Crossing fingers...

The Top 20 list for May 25, 2014

I actually want to develop a webpage which lists the demos that have been downloaded, but I need to re-learn how to program HTML. So here is a quick and dirty list.

Stats correct up to May 23, 2014

Fratricide - Fratricide
Cerebral Hemmorage - Demo '86
Mission of Christ - Live at Kennedy Hall 87 (1987-01-09) (Crowd Recording)

Mission of Christ - Live at Harpo's (Victoria, BC) 1988-02-21
Moral Decay - To Build an End 5-Song Demo (Cleaned Tape Rip)

I gots my mojo back...

Yeah I suddenly started adding stuff to the blog, I suddenly woke up at 5 am (the other day) and power drank a sleeve of 9.3% red ale, then it made sense, oh and John Benson had a request for every Micky Christ release ever done, I'm lucky enuff to have everything (one of my favorite local bands BTW). I'm gonna hopefully post more demos, but I feel a need of a call for demos. Still looking for the Red Tide - Final Solution tape, I'll pay $30 for an original. Anyhow, back to my beer...

Also, I need to re-do a few of the pages, so I have to remember how to access my website. Yeesh,,,

Alcoholic White Trash - Out of Key 'n' Out of Time (Soundgarden 2002-11-02)


Ratboy Roy posted the following the other day from his Face(d)book account:
So after the 14 best years of my life me and the boys in AWT have decided to pack it in. Its sad in a way but it feels totally right in a bunch of other ways. For me personally I dont have the drive to play that style of music and show on a regular basis and so I think our shows would have become versions of our shows as far as my performance goes. Right now we can walk away knowing that whether we played a show to 2 people or a 1000 people AWT always put a no bullshit punk thrash show. So if you havent seen the shit show or you just wanna see it one last time WE HAVE 2 SHOWS LEFT!!! MAY 24TH AT FUNKYS!!!
And TBA on the island.
And I love singing and performing way too much to stop for long so Im sure I will be opening up a show in some crappy rock and roll style s*** at Logans soon enough.

Cheers mofos

...so  I figured I'd post the only live set I have of the band (ty Garry Brainless). This Soundgarden set had 2 other bands at the gig, Burnside Brawlers (have that gig) and Powerclown (don't have),

Too bad this band didn't last as long, though I did know Jay Brown (R.i.P.) (I went to high school with the guy, albeit he was there for a month I think), Here's some trivia: When I was at Edward Milne Secondary School one day Jay showed up with a bright blue mohawk. Course all the rockers in Sooke, BC didn't like someone as punk rock as that, so he faked a British accent, even though he was never from the UK. In any case, enjoy the gig.

Here is some information about the band, courtesy last.fm...
A.W.T. started as the band Jumbo Prawn. Sean Womsley, main songwriter of Jumbo Prawn, inspired the change of name, writing the song “Alcoholic White Trash”. The band quickly came to adore and sing this song all the time, distinguishing it from their set. One night at a buddies stag party they realized that it was a fact, they were all Alcoholic White Trash, and proud of it. And thus begun the drinking team, admist the beer puke and punk rock. The birth of AWT.

Years later the band is still going strong and has many members from Victoria, Vancouver, Nanaimo, Florida, Prince George, Edmonton, and even a fucking member in Vietnam. In 1999 the members were all playing in different projects: Knuckles was playing bass for Drunk Tank, Gene-o and Roy were playing for the Ted Bundy Project, and Jay for the Bonerdogs. They played shows together all the time and all got along pretty well. All of the bands then broke up nearly at the same time, and the members drifted towards something new to do. Jay, Gene-o and Roy were A.W.T. guys already, Knuckles aint the club kinda guy, and they figured “what the fuck it’s a cool name lets call the band Alcoholic White Trash”.

The very first song they was the self-titled Alcoholic White Trash. It shared only the name with Jumbo Prawn’s tune. It is still the song they end their sets with. Many crowd members at shows sing along as the show ends, an act supported by the band. They are still making music, not making any money, drinking our faces off, and playing in smelly little bars that they love. They are willing to play shows now for beer, gas money, and somewhere they can crash
