Oak Barbershop // Portland, OR
I’ve had my hair cut here before. Rad guys, rad cuts. It’s nice to discuss the finer points of hardcore will getting a trim, makes a change from my usual barber who doesn’t speak English.

I wouldn’t bother spending money going to college or university for that, most of what they teach you won’t help. Instead spend that money on working for free, that’s the only way to start out in this business. Find a local band and help out, try and take it from there. No one will hire you as a TM for a band with any real fan base if you have no experience.

Go buy this! now!
I was in a band called Honour Among Thieves. We didn’t reinvent the wheel, but it was a lot of fun. We played a lot of gigs with Dead Swans. When we broke up (and they went on to be one of the best & most successful hardcore bands the UK has ever seen) we always said we’d play their last show. Now that moment is upon us, we figured why the hell not.
The few people who knew who we were when we were going have probably forgotten us by now, but it’ll just be fun to jump up & down for 20 minutes before declaring we’re too old for this shit.
I uploaded the small number of songs we recorded for anyone that wants a refresher. I definitely need one, I can’t remember any of the fucking lyrics.
I’m told tickets are going fast. It’s not a big venue, so it will probably sell out.
I watched this again for the 1st time in years on the bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai last week. All these Chinese people were staring at a stupid white boy bawling his eyes out on the train. One of the most powerful scenes in a film, ever.
Found this picture in Life’s archives, labeled as a 1941 christmas party that Hitler threw for his generals. However, everyone is in party uniform and look too young to be generals, so I’d suggest this is a party function of some description, and probably before the onset of war.
Anyone have anything else to add?
