80s Hardcore

Nervous Breakdown
BLACK FLAG Live In 1981
Now Showing!

I’m pretty sure many people would agree that one of the sickest hardcore bands that ever came out of the South Bay of Los Angeles was BLACK FLAG. The one constant member of the band was Greg Ginn, although Chuck Dukowski held it down with him for mad years. I have so much love for Greg and Chuck because of what they did for underground music, both as SST and as BLACK FLAG. Also, because of all of their tours across America in fucked up vans, Black Flag spread the ethos of punk rock across the states. And with each personal shift, their sound would change just a little, but they still always remained BLACK FLAG. It’s always a trip to ask someone who was their favorite BLACK FLAG singer – some will say Dez, some will say Chavo, some will say Keith and some will say Henry. It’s too hard for me to choose, but I will say the night I saw all of them perform at the BLACK FLAG reunion gig in ’83, I spazzed on all of them, but out of all of the singers, I got to see them perform with Henry the most. Kill that Cat captured their 1981 show at the Mabuhay Gardens with Dez on vocals and Robo on drums, and BLACK FLAG blazed through a killer set. So after the jump, break out your six pack and watch the punk band that kills ANTS!
