I saw these guys in Japan in 2011. It was a pretty darn cool show and they played all the hits. These guys play really rockin’ and catchy punk tunes. Well worth checking out if you’re not familiar. Top stuff!
May we never forget… Joey Ramone, RIP. I took this in 2009 when I took the trek to Mt Zion Cemetery to pay my respects to the greatest frontman of all time. #joeyramone #legend #punkicon #punk #mtzioncemetary #fuckcancer
So stoked I own one of these. Jello Biafra and the Dead Kennedys have been a huge influence on my upbringing. Their lyrics and messages have always been thought provoking and I am so glad to have discovered punk music when I did and how it has made me a better person. This print by Shepard Fairey is signed by Jello, Shepard and Glen E Friedman. Pretty awesome indeed. I really need to get it framed so it can sit alongside my Joey Ramone print that Shepard has done.
Day 21. #FavoriteRecordFriday THE HARD-ONS - “Smell My Finger”. It would be impossible for me to pick my favourite record but I can pick the one that changed my life in a huge way. I had already heard punk music like the Ramones / Sex Pistols / Dead Kennedy’s, etc. the usuals. And it was great and all but it wasn’t until I heard this record that it all clicked. The moment my ears heard this, everything seemed right. I bought the record, took it home and played it on repeat endlessly until I had enough money to go buy more. This band are the most important band in my life and love for punk rock. 1988 was a bizarre year for me but these guys changed everything for the better. Without a doubt the greatest band Australia has ever given the rest of the world (besides AC/DC, but that doesn’t even need to be said). #thehardons #hardons #smellmyfinger #punk #rock #australia #februaryrecordaday #recordaday #instavinyl #igvinylclub

Been rockin’ out to The Hookers (and related) a lot lately. Cool band. Saw them a couple times in the USA. Solid band!
Easily one of the most politically powered punk rock records of all time. I honestly think this is some of Jello’s best work. Amazing lyrics and awesome playing. #doa #jellobiafra #punk #alternativetentacles #vinyl #records #newworldorder #nwo
Still rates as one of the best punk records of the 80s. This album is flawless. Fun fact: the guitarist on this record, Big John, ended up playing in Nirvana as an on stage guitarist during some live shows as he was a tech for them around 92/93. #damosbrainknowstoomuchuselessinfo #vinyl #records #theexploited #exploited #punk #troopsoftomorrow #essentialalbums
USA release of The Hard-Ons ‘Smell My Finger’ EP with the two cuts from The Girl In The Sweater 7” tucked on the end. Bitchin’! I probably already own this but that’s ok cos you can never have too many Hard-Ons records. #vinyl #records #hardons #thehardons #punk #rock #smellmyfinger
