Under the Big Black Sun..

     Posted on Sat ,17/09/2016 by candybowl

Just read John Doe’s latest writing, Under the Big Black Sun, a history of sorts related to the LA punk scene of the late 70s/early 80s.

We saw him at The Tractor a few weeks ago – great show and they were promoting the book at the show, so got it from the library.

This is an interesting read for a number of reasons – it definitely brings back memories of that time, when those of us not living in LA (nor old enough to be punks in a band anyway) could only observe things from afar through local record stores and mags like The Rocket. It’s also definitely a window into a crazy mishmash of misfits and aspiring musicians, poets and outcasts seeking their own kind of community, with vignettes written by many others in the scene besides Doe (Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Gos, Henry Rollins of Black Flag, Mike Watt from The Minutemen (whom we saw at the Tractor last year, too) – the list goes on. Finally, to me it was a bit eye-opening to all the drug and alcohol abuse that seemed to accompany the scene, at least according to the book. It’s obvious that sort of thing goes with the territory – but does it have to? Being on the outside I guess makes that a bit hard to relate to.

In any event, X has always been a fave band since that time, and they were one of, if not the first, band I saw play live. This book only serves to continue their legacy for both LA punks then and since – and is a love letter to all longtime fans. Thanks, John Doe.

Not the proudest moment….

I’ve been a Star Trek fan all my life, but never knew this about Gene Roddenberry. But the most telling point about this story is the last panel, pasted below (link to full story just above image). Definitely food for thought.

It’s Going To Be OK.

love him….some old clips….

what I also loved was during Conan’s brief stint on the Tonight Show – he had Norm on there several times where Norm had nothing going on, and was just being really weird, or they’d try to do a sketch that fell flat – love him!
