Love the comics you mentioned! The souds and flicks too... but that, goes without saying ;)
Hi gang, I'm Dave, 47, and I live in Portland, Oregon.
I love loud, rude music of all kinds- R&B, Rockabilly, 60s Punk, Freakbeat, Aussie punk, etc.,
as well as smoother stuff like soul, ska/rocksteady, triphop, and more... What I'm guessing most of y'all like, too.
Love indie comics like the Hernandez Bros. Love and Rockets, Peter Bagge's Hate, Roberta Gregory's Naughty Bits...
Dark and quirky movies like The Loved One, Ghost World, Quadrophenia...
I don't see shows anymore, but love finding new music and like-minded souls here,
Cheers to you all, Dave
hi, just found the site yesterday, really cool place.
I play dirty stripped down garage rock from london.
have a listen if you like
really into bands like ty segall, thee oh sees king khan black lips etc
although i thinking of starting a campaign stopping bands from coming up with names that begin with the word black. it is so over used - black lips, black angels, black flag, black rebel motorcycle club, black manila, black keys,
if anyone has any others please add. i wanna try and find out how many original rock bands there are out there with 50% of the same name

listened to metal until I was @12 or 13 when a friend turned me on to the Misfits, Agnostic Front, 7 Seconds etc... It was all downhill from there...
The Cramps really turned me to a life of sin at a young age... I have lived for booze, drugs (gave these up because of the junkies I had to spend time with), sin, & rock & roll ever since...
Got married in Jamaica to a super hot punk girl, too much of living the life led to several minor arrests, her putting guns in my face on a regular basis, getting held hostage by a local crazy, etc...
After a nervous breakdown (I noticed somebody else mentioned this happening also) I'm back on the mend these days. I lost a 20 year record collection, all my guitars & clothes... Recently got a new turntable, started my record collection over (it sucked losing it, but it really is fun starting a better one.)
Started school to become a machinist last week & it's great, been writing songs again & waiting to see what state/city I land in next to start a new rock & roll band.
As far as my music taste these days, anything on Voodoo Rhythm, everything I heard from Burger Records, everything I have heard from Douchemaster Records, Get Hip, Velocity of Sound... Big Nobunny fan, big Spits fan, really into punk, oi, old rock & roll, r&B, doowop, Mark Sultan, 60's garage & psyche (off the top of my head.)
Probably way too much info, but I blame that on the medication & the booze...
