Live The Chaos

This classic bit of Bay Area punk rock history is essential. Rancid posed at train tracks and the punk haunts of the East Bay for videos and pictorials in SPIN, Filth was the real deal, living the chaos. Now you can live the chaos too, but in a more hypothetical digital manner with this batch of mp3s and this jpeg.

"Hey man" (Reverent Jim Jones)
hypotetical is the right terminology for people who are not worst than a commando suburb and, in fact, speak the same language
I take no position between the twos, I have my, and most important than "waiting for a train", my choice is rapidly and absolutely social
As the last of the Vikings, I just need you to remember to never forget the first times of german industrial music, never tell me that you don't know that they can damage everyone of us, with or without me
this society is nothing

Ahhh, when I was young... 17 years old, nothing to lose!

Ryan said...

One of the records that helped me through my adolescence to become the guy i am today. beyond classic and so, so punk.

TMM said...

the shit split changed my life when I was 13/14.....did Hickey play with those 2 bands alot back in the 90's????

Ryan said...

THIS IS WHY I AM THE PUNX.

Word. Thanks Aesop, this is great. Haven't thought about filth in a while, since I picked up Pg. 99's "document 8" years ago, which had a cover of "The List." Funny that you mentioned Rancid in this post, because you could have also added AFI to East Bay punk who pose for SPIN--and AFI did a cover of Today's Lesson!

It's exactly what I waited at 17, the world is my and I can kill everyone

Aesop said...

Difference is that AFI at one point was a real band, not a very good one, but at least real. Rancid was an act from day one.

filth will always be better than blatz.

Shelby Cobras said...

This album was gospel (along with Blatz Better Than The Beer) to the group of young shitheads I grew up with in Humboldt County in the early 90's. Never had it on anything but dubbed cassette until now. Thanks, dude.

PS "HERE IS YOUR LESSON FOR TODAY!!!" would have also been a good title for this post. Just sayin'...

brendan said...

OK, it's official,tonight I am gonna fuck shit up.

Aesop said...

Ah, Shelby, very good, but I missed it. I wanted everyone to digitally "live the chaos"

kerns said...

that's true, though which would you consider more genuine? Does Rancid know that they've always been an act? It would seem so, to me at least, whereas AFI at one point probably believed that they were hardcore punks. I can't tell which one I consider to be more true to themselves, given that Rancid hasn't really changed ethically since the beginning, and AFI kind of got off the ride once they realized it wasn't paying.

nice to have this on the hard drive, thanks

at the risk of being a huge dork, i have to throw it out there that afi used to rule. everything from "shut your mouth" through "sing the sorrow" is great. i mean sure it was not the most pummeling/raw music ever, and the lyrics sometimes sucked, but it was very dark and powerful. i think they had a really distinctive sound. plus their albums meant a lot to me in high school and i still listen to them whenever shit gets rough (not that I'm that much older).

around 97/98 jake filth moved to santa fe nm, where he hooked up with the remains of logical nonsense (and maybe some other nm bands... can't remember) as OUR MOTHER OF SORROW. they were fucking amazing.... does anyone know of a recording of them exists? anyone have one? been looking for any trace of it for almost a decade....

sephim said...

THIS is the stuff I'm glad gets posted because back in "the day" unless it was in a shitty "metal" magazine or played on the so-called alternative radio station (which we didn't even GET in my shitty little town, 30 minutes outside a shitty small city, six hours away from the nearest state capital, in AUSTRALIA) we would never have heard of it... Living off the internet since '96 - I still have so much catching up to do and so much great REAL music still to hear.

How bad was it? I used to think Metallica's Seek And Destroy was the heaviest thing I had ever heard - having only heard it 8 years after it had been out. Really, what chance did I have in life thinking that?

Anonymous said...

I once saw Filth play two separate shows at separate venues in one day, now that is punk. Such a great record and great lyrics.

Aesop said...

Not to boast but Hickey once did three shows in one day. Berkeley, Sacramento, Oakland.

Obscurus said...

The shit split was legendary. Anyone remember Grimple? I used to have a 12" inch by Grimple and I cant remember the title right now but it was right up there with the Shit split. Anyways cool Post

brian said...

yeah our mother of sorrow was fucking sick!!! i dont think they ever put anything out, maybe a demo tape? got to see them once and i was floored...didnt know it was jake filth till later on.
