W00f! Ten years ago at the Oakland Metro Opera House. The UPTONES headlined and MINUS VINCE played their last show. It was a classic East Bay one-off and just happened to be captured by Jake Small, AKA Jake the Skank. He recently remastered the audio and visual and re-posted it in the Intertubes, so without further ado, here’s the skacument:
Stumbled onto this at Tazy’s FB and whooeeebob, this fearsome SoCal foursome puts the revolution back in revolution rock. They put the punk back in punk rock. They rock mieces to pieces to hell and back in a chickenbasket and they’re fixin’ to warp the Warped Tour. Check out Bad Cop / Bad Cop! Best band name award, too. Two paws up!
Check out this cool new record from King Kong 4. There are so many things I like about this. One is that they are called King Kong 4. I also like that their sound is “wedged uncomfortably between early Elvis Costello and the Specials first album” – as one of the Kongsters described. He’s right, by Jove. The dudes have a FB page and they’re on Bandcamp. The guitar playing is especially notable and the combo rocks. Really solid release, hot off the presses. Two paws up!
