UG Punk Tributes

This thread is for UGers to contribute cover songs to build up a compilation of tributes to some of the biggest and most influential bands in punk history.

Each post will contain a tribute to a band, with quick bio and a list of cover songs contributed by UG members.

If you want to add your song to a tribute, PM the poster of the tribute. If you wish to start your own tribute, post here with the suggested band... but before you do make sure that others aren't running at the same time, else no-one will have time to contribute.

Enjoy! :cheers:

After going through several vocalists,Henry Rollins joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded their debut full length album, Damaged, in 1981. A lawsuit kept them out of the studio until 1984, releasing My War, a departure album of Stooges and Ramones style punk rock meets Black Sabbath sludge . They released several albums(and went through even more members) over the next two years until Ginn, the only original member left, broke the band up in 1986.

Dead Kennedys
http://www.citizinemag.com/music/0309_klausfluoride1.3.JPG

Biography:

This is a tribute to one of the greatest bands to rise in the underground scene in the late 70's and early 80's, headed by now liberal political pundit Jello Biafra, with East Bay Ray on guitar, 6025 Playing rythym for a little bit, Ted on drums, followed by DH Peligro when Ted had to leave and Klaus Flouride on bass.
They had a few "hits" including Holiday in Cambodia, California Uber Alles, Kill The Poor, and Too Drunk To Fuck (which hit the Top 40 list in Britain)
They were led to their demise in the early 80's after an accounting error and a law suit over a picture found in one of their albums
Recently they've released a live show (Live at the Deaf Club) as well as a bootleg collection (Mutiny on the Bay) All the Dead Kennedys continue to play for the same band, with the exception of Jello, who was replaced by Jeff Penalty.

http://www.ska.ru/images/opivy/opiv1.jpg
Operation Ivy was a ska punk band who originated from the East Bay of San Francisco. Two of their members, Tim Armstrong ("Lint") and Matt Freeman (credited as Matt McCall), went on to form the band Rancid. There was a great deal of speculation regarding the fate of frontman Jesse Michaels , with many fans believing that he had moved to South America or become a Buddhist Monk. Michaels eventualy resurfaced into the music world with his project, Common Rider .

The band existed between May of 1987 and May of 1989. They released an EP (Hectic , January 1988) and a 12 inch record titled Energy on Lookout! Records in March 1989 shortly before they disbanded.

The lyrics and tone of music by Operation Ivy reflect social justice issues and resistance to mainstream or conformist culture.

Operation Ivy derived their name from the Operation Ivy series of nuclear tests.

I use 2 things to record. I either use a four track tape recorder, or Adobe Auditions. The four track is nice for the band (which is what I did Forming on) but when transfering to the computer, and the way we use it, the quality suffers. Adobe Auditions (which I downloaded somewhere...not sure where) has good quality, but takes longer to use. There are lots of free recording programs on the internet. I don't know any names though. Maybe someone else does.

The Germs



http://www.cosmogakki.com/carol/cart_ex/img/patch-germs.gif




Biography:
Los Angeles, California, USA punk band the Germs were formed in April 1977. The original members were Darby Crash (b.
Paul Beahm; vocals), Pat Smear (guitar), Lorna Doom (bass) and Belinda Carlisle (drums), later of the Go-Gos. She soon left
and was replaced by a succession of percussionists, including future X drummer D.J. Bonebrake and Don Bolles of 45 Grave.
The group's first single, "Forming", was issued on What? Records in 1977 and is considered by some to be the first example of
the post-punk "hardcore" genre, later popularized by bands such as Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys.

Their next single was issued on Slash Records, which in 1979 released the group's only album, GI. The group disbanded in
early 1980 but re-formed later that year. A week after their first reunion concert, however, singer Crash died of a heroin
overdose. Smear later worked with Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. The catalyst to a thousand US punk bands, though few
modeled themselves on Crash's legendary self-destructive nature, the Germs were fated only ever to offer a musical flashpoint
rather than a career blueprint. A tribute album was issued in 1996 featuring White Zombie , Courtney Love, the Melvins,
Mudhoney and others.

Not neccessarily: if your production is good, audacity gets the job done.

I recorded some tracks a while back using audacity, a marshall mg15cdr and a cheap jhs mud 500 microphone. It sounded pretty good.

Bullsh*t. They started U.K punk, and if any, the only real punk band before them was the ramones, but I count them as another proto-punk band like the stooges, mc5, television. Great bands, but the pistols were the first punks.
Explaining ramones, they were greasers and played fast rock n roll with same lyrics the stooges had been using. Only innovations were their "uniform" jeans n jackets, and playing the same 3 tunes, but they're a great band.

Basically my point is, no, the sex pistols were either one of the first or the first. Oh yeah, and Joe Strummer described them as a "new thing" and the future of music.

We just finished off our cover of The Boneless Ones - 'Give it to you'.

They werent as popular as the other bands we've covered, and they had a crossover metal quality, but they were one of my fave's back in the days.
