Sick Mormons - Trashfest '08

So time for Trashfest 13.

Not much work to do at my job the thursday Trashfest started, so we drew straws and i won and was able to take the day off.Good! off to trashfest! A two-hour, train ride and a hitchhiked ride to the camping got us there.

Lots of bands,lots of beer,lots of distros.And not to forget, lots of punks,lots of hardcorekids, and lots of crusts.

First band ill cover is:
Sick Mormons, a friends band, very new, very promising. Snotty vocals type of melodic punkrock or hardcore ala, adolescents?

Definitely excited for the upcoming 7" in july!

Colored Rice Men - Moonstep april '08

Colored Rice Men from Japan is another band i just stumbled upon in april 2008, during a punk show in Tokyo. After some research i found out they had some former members of Outo and Lip Cream!

I can only describe them as an offbeat punk/hardcore sound with an insane-ass saxophone. Imagine that!, hardcore + saxophone.

Picked up their lp "New Animal Life", during my stay in Tokyo.

Citizens Patrol - Bitterzoet '08

Same day and venue as the last video, Annihilation Time and same day as Bad Religion, Citizens Patrol performed. This is actually the second time i filmed this band. Last time was at the greatly missed and evicted De Baarmoeder squat in Amsterdam, here.

They hail from The Netherlands and are about to release the, DEAD CHILDREN 7"EP. They will be touring the U.S. starting next weekend and playing No Way Fest , see their page for tour dates.

Annihilation Time - Bitterzoet, Amsterdam 09-06-2008

To these questions:"Darcy?,Do you only go to shows where the audience doesn't dance/fuck shit up?""Do they always just stand there, nodding to the beat?", the answer is a simple, NO! When the shit hits the van at a show, i will probably be the van( or the shit, for that matter) So there is no way i am filming a good show, unless someone else does it for me, which was the case with my Born/Dead video, at an insane good band/show as Annihilation Time.They totally tore the place up, glass was fucking everywhere(these little tiny pieces in my arms?fuck, and i was just observing.) However the show was on a monday , so i had to work the next day, and i just came from another show, Bad Religion in the Melkweg. So i decided 4 beers and just watching the show was enough. All in all this gave me the chance to film one of the best shows i have filmed, ever:

Inner Terrestrials - Occii, Amsterdam

I think it has been three or four years ago that i went to see Inner Terrestrials
in de "Vrankrijk". I got blown away by this band and bought their album "X", for a friend.
Big mistake or a really good present cause its a great album and i've been playing it off and on ever since. They play a mix of hardcore punk, ska and dub with an anarcho punk political view.

So last friday i went to see them again and here is the result:
