Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm gilmour:

"That jacket was SO documentary." LOL. That's a great line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Franco Twinkie:

We all heard really filthy stories back in the day.
Avatar 6:24pm Billy Jam:

ahead of their time The Go-G's defund The Police
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm chresti:

That'd be great! A jacket documentary.
Avatar 6:24pm Billy Jam:

Go-Go's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Therese:

@Billy Jam they were so ahead of the curve.
Avatar 6:26pm Billy Jam:

hi Therese - based on your review am gonna watch that doc tonite - thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Therese:

I didn't even mention all the great archival LA punk scene footage!
  6:31pm BH:

Courtney!
Avatar 6:31pm Joe B:

Hi Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Dave in Vermont:

Love this guitar tone.
  6:32pm Jett:

The Go-Gos documentary is my SHO on demand, when I get a chance, I'll check it out @Therese I'm sure I will enjoy it. Thanks for recommending it. I usually find your taste to be on the money!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Franco Twinkie:

That's the thing Therese - they were a punk band when they started.
Avatar 6:32pm Joe B:

great segue, also (Lewsbery-Courtney)
Avatar 6:33pm Joe B:

yeah they didn't fit in with the L.A. punk scene because they could actually play
Avatar 6:34pm Billy Jam:

@Therese I love archival footage of LA punk scene that I have not seen yet - hello Joe B and all else tuned in to Therese today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Joe, they were sloppy as hell when they started.
Avatar 6:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wasn't Belinda a Germ?
  6:36pm P-90:

Hi Therese and devotees. Joining a tad tardy, but enthused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Goodbye, afternoon nap. Hello, Therese and company.
Avatar 6:36pm Joe B:

yeah I know. that didn't last long. anyone who cried sellout to them was just jealous that they actually knew how to improve
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Therese:

@Franco- the doc gives ample time to original members Margot Olavarria and Elissa Bello and the band's shift away from punk.
  6:37pm Dean:

Never saw the Go-Go's, but did see The Eyes, featuring chresti's former roommate. A super band. Happy birthday, chresti! Those old fuzzy videos of the early Go-Go's definitely depict a band not quite ready for prime time, but all the more lovable for that fact.
Avatar 6:38pm Joe B:

once gina shock came in, even before the more poppier material came in, they were destined for bigger things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes she was! I saw The Germs when they had a girl drummer, but do I know for sure it was Belinda? No.
  6:38pm Dean:

No. Was Donna Rhia.
Avatar 6:38pm Joe B:

belinda never played a show with them, according to the internets
  6:39pm Dean:

I bought my copy of "Forming" from none other than Chris Ashford, Germs manager at the time.
Avatar 6:40pm Billy Jam:

@Rabbit - just realized that that debut "Gi" Germs album that I have a copy is worth a bit of money now in original pressing
  6:40pm Dean:

Remember, Franco? He was stationed at the register at Licorice Pizza, Sunset Blvd., across the street from the Whisky.
  6:41pm Dean:

Well, not manager, but owner-operator of What? Records, the label on which the single appeared.
  6:42pm P-90:

Licorice Pizza. The big record store with the big head shop department. As many record stores did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm chresti:

I saw the Go-Gos once at the Masque, with Margot on drums, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Franco Twinkie:

I don't remember Dean, but you know, at that time everybody everywhere was doing something, and some people actually went on to be a big deal. But at the beginning...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm chresti:

Thanks Dean.
  6:46pm Carmichael:

Heya Therese and ear people. I STILL have a big crush on Annie Lennox.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Franco Twinkie:

I saw Gina when she was in The Incredible Eggs with Edith Massey. Now that was a band!
  6:50pm Dean:

Never saw Black Flag--don't like them, actually--but I did see Kira Roessler in Waxx.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Rtintera:

Loving this set today. So nice bbq’ing with the breeze
  6:51pm P-90:

Anyone see X in their prime?
  6:53pm Dean:

I avoided X in their prime and always. So sue me. But I would have loved to have seen the Randoms. Both bands played the Masque Benefit on the second night, which I didn't make. And of course the drummer for the Eyes was D.J. Bonebrake.
  6:54pm Dean:

But I did acquire X's first single from one of the guys at Dangerhouse, pre-release, because I was working for Flipside at the time. Gave it to a buddy who likes the band.
Avatar 6:54pm Joe B:

that Pacific Breeze comp is great. Vol. 1 is on my list
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Therese:

@Joe agreed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm deborah:

Carmichael I had a crush on Annie Lenox also. Still adore her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Franco Twinkie:

P-90.I first saw X practicing at The Masque on a Sunday afternoon. About a month later I saw them open for The Screamers at The Whiskey. They were ragged at first, but every subsequent time they were better. Meaner, tougher, more musical.
  6:59pm Jett:

Still have my Go-Gos single on U.K. Stiff records, where they went to, in order to launch their debut. I prefer that version of "We Got The Beat." By the time the released the re-make in the states, it was old news to me.
  6:59pm Jett:

@Therese, You are GLORIOUS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm chresti:

Dean, which guy?
  7:05pm Dean:

Bob Dead?
  7:05pm Dean:

Was at a Bags rehearsal I attended.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm chresti:

That sounds right.

Kate Bush
Avatar 7:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...*Kate Bush isn't just the sexiest Auteur - she's also kind of the funniest...
  7:32pm Carmichael:

Happy bday, chresti. Leos RULE!
  7:34pm Jett:

I was cooking during your little speech about what Kate Bush song to play. I was screaming, don't play that. Play "Babooshka" and sure enough, you played Babooshka. We had that transmission of thought going on again. @Therese
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm chresti:

Thanks Carmichael!
Avatar 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Leo = Monarchy, yes.
  7:47pm Carmichael:

Mine is the 12th.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Rtintera:

Pure bliss. JAMC. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm chresti:

Happy Birthday month, Carmichael!
  7:50pm Mike tp:
