for those of us unlucky or lucky enough to be born what we were, punk rock offered a lot of choices up until the 80's. I happened to love TSOL, and saw them quite a few times in the early 80s. I was at a different Target show, [minus the slamming ape-jock types] where they were wearing these fantastic fake-fur neon colored shirts- I THINK it was their first visit to SF. they were AMAZING. incredible lyrics, they could play, they were tight, and they were cute. I dug them.
unfortunately, the time captured in this dvd was the transitional era for punk from the earlier magical era of freedom to uptight, authoritative testosterone-fueled yell-fests. and if I wanted that I could go to a football game, not go see bands.
the Flipside show is pretty bad- the sound is thin. god, how did they stand all that sunlight? I guess when you're from LA you can deal with it. the best part for me was the interview at the end. I remember my own days of listening to ideologues, washing down the rhetoric with lots of cheap beer; of righteousness wrapped in a black leather jacket. I'm not surprised that Jack Grisham is inclined towards political office. he's quite a talker. hey, why not? good for him.
regardless, these guys were a great band, and their first two albums were amazing; full of powerful emotion and optimism. this dvd contains some of this great music.
