I saw 'em once. / It's not the Doors' fault -- it was classic ROCK radio that overplayed them over decades, like Led Zep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm chresti:

I'm not familiar with The Soft Parade, which makes it an extra treat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Sam Segal:

So true! I saw "The Doors of the 21st Century," featuring Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek, someone not John Densmore on drums, and Ian Astbury from the Cult fronting the group.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Sam Segal:

Ian Underwood on saxophone here.
Avatar 9:16pm Franco Twinkie:

I saw The Doors opening for Frank Zappa at the Hollywood Bowl in 1972. I't was their last show. Jim was already dead, but Ray said "I know you're out their Jimbo!" We really cracked up. Half the audience looked like Jim Morrison.
  9:16pm chresti:

I was hearing shades of Zappa in the Doors track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Sam Segal:

Fucking hell, Twinkie...you've got my live Doors experience beat, that's for sure.

i love the doors...the doors that i love. i absolutely can't stand the soft parade album! only 1 good song on it, "wild child".
Avatar 9:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti and I were remembering how much super fast fusion jazz rock was was ruling the roost in the early to mid seventies. Then punk happened, which was fun and exiting, but all of a sudden certain people were taking a Pol Pot back to year zero attitude, and trying to pretend all this music never happened. It was weird times for sure.
  9:45pm chresti:

I always say moooooog
Avatar 9:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Weider than Lowell George playing on Hot Rats, he supposedly played flute on a Frank Sinatra session!
  9:46pm tigeroe:

I love this too! Great tunes tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Sam Segal:

Thanks, Tigeroe! I really do respect your thoughts on Eminem! I gotta cool it with the "Kill Yr Idols" attitude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Sam Segal:

Holy shit, Twinkie, that's gotta be the best factoid I've heard in awhile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm coelacanth∅:

"moge" (like rogue) is correct.
  9:52pm Dean:

I kinda have this feeling that the punk-was-a-reaction-to-prog (fusion, etc.) was made up by, naturally, stupid media people. I remember mid- to late-'70s hanging with people into the Dolls, Iggy, Ramones, and Yes, Pink Floyd, Le Orme, Guru Guru...
  9:54pm Dean:

OTOH, punk was definitely a reaction to Styx.
Avatar 9:56pm TDK60:

I was listening to Commander Cody round the same time as Weather Report. etc.
  9:56pm chresti:

I remember being at the masque where there would be these attacks on anyone with long hair
  9:58pm Dean:

@chresti: Really? I was at the Masque quite a bit. I don't recall anything of the sort. One of the qualities of the LA punk scene, to my mind, was its inclusiveness (which might simply have been a function of its I-dont'-give-a-shit-ness).
Avatar 9:58pm Franco Twinkie:

Sam, who knows. But I will say this; having seen Lowell many times, he was so versatile, I wouldn't be surprised if he could play bongo drums standing on his head while eating a cheeseburger.
  9:58pm chresti:

There would be shouts of “Cut his hair!”
  9:59pm chresti:

This is GREAT
  9:59pm Dean:

Yeah, but serious? What I remember are the ubiquitous references to "Jerry." Who the fuck was Jerry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm coelacanth∅:

for me punk was just something with passion at a time when all my favorite bands had run out of it. i still, alongside punk, liked what i liked before.
Avatar 10:02pm TDK60:

I was a longhair but also later got into punk/ noowave/ postpunk/ etc. But I still liked older stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm coelacanth∅:

i rebelled by NOT cutting my hair.
Avatar 10:02pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, It all depends on what group you happened to be in the orbit of. Some were smart and funny, others self important talentless creeps.
  10:05pm Dean:

Much like America, Franco.

Right, coelacanth, I felt no significant pressure to get in line, but for me that was because I didn't sense a strong prescription to do so. My group was Flipside, for whom I worked during the early days. Al, X-8, Pooch, etc., those guys were great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm coelacanth∅:

i was in a punk band and i thought the 2 guitarists, who had both grown their hair very long after meeting already long-haired me 2 years earlier, were pathetically conformist to get crew cuts as they did.
Avatar 10:08pm TDK60:

I remember when '80s Calif. hardcore punk bands like Black Flag or M.D.C. grew their hair just to mess with a perceived punk conformity in hair/dress.
Avatar 10:09pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, the Jerry reference was to Jerry Lewis. It started with Geza X using Jerry Lewis as a standard of self debasement. If you could act like Jerry in public, you passed the test.
  10:10pm Dean:

That's marvelous, Franco. So many references on the Masque walls to Jerry.

I'm assuming we passed the test, because the first time we played there Brendan introduced as "the ultimate in embarrassment rock."
Avatar 10:11pm TDK60:

But it was also musical. The Minutemen took shit for not sounding "punk." They replied: it is our punk.
Avatar 10:11pm Franco Twinkie:

You passed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

TDK right, and long before that (in the context of punk) ramones had long hair, and their music sounded like raw beach boys music. only their irreverent image and silly lyrics made them "punk".
  10:17pm Dean:

My experience of the punk scene in LA focuses (almost exclusively) on those couple of years in the late '70s, so I can understand why The Minutemen might have been criticized for riding the wave. Punk was a scene, not so much a genre (hence The Screamers, who are not easy to assign to a category at all, or The Quick, who happened to emerge at the same time). For me, punk was those two or three short years, nothing more.
  10:19pm Dean:

I say "almost exclusively" because, goddamn, Claw Hammer were amazing and would have fit perfectly into LA punk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm coelacanth∅:

in nj, at least, there was a wealth of punk bands - and a scene- for a few years into the 80s, even after all the famous punk bands had turned to shit, died or disbanded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm coelacanth∅:

(mostly turned to shit)
Avatar 10:23pm Franco Twinkie:

For me, the best year in punk was 1977 because a lot of people were still trying to figure out what it was, musically and other wise. Backwards pants? Why not! Raw liver taped to your head? Front of the line mister!
  10:24pm chresti:

The punk hair style concern was brief, like in early 77
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

i only tuned in to punk around the winter of 1978, and i might consider that my favorite year for "punk &/or new wave" music; though some great punk music goes back several years before that.
  10:34pm Dean:

Spring '76 for me. Heard about the Pistols, went to London later that year. I was hooked.
Avatar 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

When I saw The Patti Smith Group in early '76 it was a wake up call that something was up. But I had no idea that I was just seeing the storm front moving in.
  10:42pm chresti:

Yeah I think the time I’m thinking of was later 77

1976 i was bored with most of what i heard on the radio - if not annoyed by! and though i went to parties and hung with many different factions of peers of my jr.high school (as it was called then) i didn't know anybody who wasn't into mostly shitty music.

I will tell my sad Patti Smith tale again around this fire....or hay bale. Symphony Hall, Boston, 1976. Sparks opened, and after their set, Patti was barely a couple songs into hers when a member of our party, having a bad night with his girlfriend, prevailed upon us in his ill temper to LEAVE! Walked out...and into decades of regret. Saw her again briefly at Boston First Night a few years ago. Meh.

winter 1977. i discovered wfmu, and late '77 i started hanging with grateful dead/yes people.

  11:09pm chresti:

Very enjoyable set , Sam
Avatar 11:10pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, I didn't realize you were so young! I can see why punk was so important to you. My feeling at the time was 'I don't care if this turns out to be the biggest bunch of nothing. It looks like fun and I want some!' Of course it wasn't nothing,and ultimately was a pivotal point in pop music.
  11:10pm Dean:

Roommate of mine auditioned with Sparks. Didn't get the gig, but still.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm coelacanth∅:

i saw Patti Smith at the first (? -1997) guinness fleadh and she was awesome! as many artist did, she played some irish jig kind of stuff; and she of course had some words of wisdom to share.

In that vein, Dean, One day at work my friend was in a sour mood. I asked him what was wrong. With down cast eyes he told me the night before he got the call...TO JOIN CRAZY HORSE. He couldn't - family responsibilities. Needless to say, soon after he got divorced.

Wow, folks, I've just been alerted that "If You Lose Your Horse" received a really generous pledge from Yukio in Washington. Thank you, Yukio! Only $70 left and I'm at my goal for the October Fundraiser.
Avatar 11:23pm still b/p:

I left the Boston area in '77 for smaller cities -- and more musically limited media markets -- in midwest and then Texas for school and then work, and missed most of punk shortly after it had started rising. Home again just for summer of 78, I did catch a couple acts and put some Pistols on a mix tape.

A couple high school students thought I was younger than what I reported and said they "couldn't believe" my actual age recently. And, yes, it pushed a li'l button of ego, though how good are teenagers at accurate adult age estimates anyway?

  11:26pm Dean:

My personal "If only..." story: After one of my bands played the Masque on Santa Monica Blvd., I got a call from either Marc or Stan from Wall of Voodoo. He asked us to open for them at Hong Kong Cafe (or maybe Madame Wong's?). We said yes, but broke up that week. Oh, well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

i had a radical friend who used to rant to the annoyance of many while we listened to old Dylan and doors and Phil Ochs and 'airplane (etc) then in the beginning of 10th grade he moved to branchberg - a very racist, anti-progressive nj town. a few months later he came back to visit - a full-on punk! turned me on to the clash and stiff little fingers and buzzcocks and i don't remember who else but he left the clash album with me.

Avatar 11:28pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, what was your bands name? I'm going to ask Stan if he remembers. We see him alot.
  11:29pm Carmichael:

Dean used to rock!
  11:30pm Dean:

We were Sound of M, Flipside's first record (though they don't proudly claim us). We'd opened for Levi & the Rockcats at the second Masque.
Avatar 11:30pm northguineahills:

I have Dylan on the queue in the car. punk, outside of pre-pere ubu bands in Ohio, art punk, I didn't really get into it. That said, in the late 90s-2000s, through my soccer team's bands, I got into hardcore (Thurston and John Zorn also helped).

Not to my knowledge, coel, but it's possible somebody posted it there.

Alex Ferguson of ATV was supposed to join us the morning we recorded in my parents' garage, but it was raining and he didn't know us and...who knows.

Yes, nostalgia is strong. But I did appreciate the vibe, independent of the music, in a way that informs my experience of history. It was a special time.

I didn't know The Eyes, but I saw them a couple times at the Masque. They were spectacular, in my opinion far superior to the bands they spawned, X and Go-Go's. (We called our band M, because X is such a cheesy name for a band. To my mind, X portended the decline of LA punk.)

i cant stand la's x's female vocals. some of the music is okay, but it's ruined by her terrible singing and their terrible harmonies.

Charlotte definitely knew what she was doing. (She, too, appears in that contact sheet spread in Brendan's book, as does Belinda.)
