L.A. punk-power-pop band Bleached have announced their second album, Welcome to the Worms, will be released April 1 on Dead Oceans. You can preorder the album now on LP and CD.

Bleached features sisters Jessie and Jennifer Clavin at the helm, formerly of punk greats Mika Miko. Their first album, Ride Your Heart, was a blast of fizzy guitar riffs and sugary, snarling melodies. This time around, they've teamed with engineer Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) and co-producer Carlos de la Garza (Paramore, YACHT) and added bassist Micayla Grace to the fold.

MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS' Rock N' Roll Triple Bill With Director Penelope Spheeris In Person At SF's Castro Theatre

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, April 27, 2015 04:02pm | Post a Comment

On Friday, May 8th, our pals at MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS present a tribute to director Penelope Spheeris at San Francisco's historic Castro Theatre and it is a triple bill fit for the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame. After decades of bootlegs, hearsay, and double-talk rumors, Spheeris's The Decline of Western Civilization films have finally been digitally restored and will receive their first official release since the 1980s. It also happens to be the 23rd anniversary of Spheeris's comedy Wayne's World, so catch that on the big screen too! Spheeris will be in attendance and on the Castro stage for a live Q&A session.

Admission is only $13 for all three films. Advance Tix are on sale HERE!
 

Here's what's happening that night:


7:00pm: The Decline of Western Civilization (1981)
Decline of Western CivilizationWorld Theatrical Premiere of DCP Restoration! Written & Directed by Penelope Spheeris

The world theatrical premiere of the seminal Punk classic features jaw-dropping performances by the Germs, X, Black Flag, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Bag Band, Catholic Discipline, along with brutally honest interviews with the young punks of Los Angeles circa 1980. Spheeris's stark camerawork captured this moment-in-time better than any film from the era and it's time to celebrate it in all of its purposeful unglory. Digitally restored picture and sound presented in a brand new DCP print courtesy of Spheeris Films. Preceded by a fistful of punk themed 35mm trailers. Q&A with Spheeris following the film.

All-Female Bands of the 1970s -- Happy Women's History Month!

All Female Bands of the 1970s

I wrote a post on all-female bands from the 1910s-1950s, and a post covering all-female bands of the 1960s -- here's my attempt at a conclusive A-Z (and other alphabets) of all-female bands of the 1970s. Details are often sketchy or non-existent and as always corrections and contributions are appreciated!
 

DIE ATZTUSSIS


Die Atztussis were an anarcho-punk band from the Kreuzberg section of West Berlin, active at least as early as 1979 when they played the Antifaschistischen Festival. The members were Cordula (vocals), Kiki (bass), Menusch (guitar), and Petra (drums).
