Yet another 'name that tune' ask...

This morning when I turned on my car, a song started playing... it said from my phone's bluetooth, but when I looked at my various apps nothing was playing the song (or any song). Usually my phone starts up the podcast I last listened to, but nothing was playing there either. I stopped the song, and then regretted it, because I can't figure out what song it was...

Help me identify two 90s punk/indie/hardcore songs (male/female duet)

Back in Riot Grrrl days, a pen pal made me an amazing mix tape. It was 90% mostly-west coast hardcore (Los Crudos, Spitboy) and 10% Guys and Dolls soundtrack, I shit you not -- obviously the best ever. I have no idea what her name was and I don't have the tape or the liner notes, but there are two songs that were great and haunt me. Please reach into your knowledge of 90s punk and hc, and help me identify them. [more inside]

Where in the US should we go for our anniversary?--punk beach edition

My husband and I are looking for somewhere to go on a short vacation--4 or 5 days--for our five year anniversary in late May. We have a number of preferences, but the thing we want most is a place that has a beach and a pretty good punk scene. Beach does not necessarily have to be warm enough to be swimmable, it just needs to exist. [more inside]

Evil Surf Punk?

I really like the combination of ominous sound and surf guitar influence in East Bay Ray's work with the Dead Kennedys. (Examples would be "Police Truck" and "Too Drunk to Fuck".) Are there other bands who do a similar sort of evil surf sound?

Blog-Magazines For Cool Colorful Punk Babes

Lately I've been really into the blog Ribbon Around A Bomb, who writes about female-fronted 70s post-punk, Twin Peaks, feminist art, and leather jackets. I also love The Pulp Zine, which is full of teen dreams and high school small town angst, an obsession with Burger Records, 90s nostalgia, black lipstick and pink hair. I'm looking for more blogs that cover punk, garage rock, femme fun, DIY, weirdo fashion, nostalgia, queerness, creativity, feminism, art, and worship of countercultural idols. Basically, I'm a fully-grown scummy punk boyfemme who wants the experience of flipping through a teen magazine tailored to my interests. What other sites would I love? [more inside]

Hearing Protection for Musicians, or, It's Too Loud and I'm Too Old

I am a bass player, and I have recently returned to playing loud, noisy rock and roll after a 4-year hiatus from the stage. I have always eschewed earplugs on stage, on the grounds that they keep me from hearing all of the nuance I need to hear to play effectively with a group. But I ain't no spring chicken anymore, and now I recognize that the real reason I never wore earplugs before, even in mind-bendingly loud bands, was mostly out of misplaced machismo. I can tell that I have lost some hearing over the years, especially in the ear that usually faces the drums, and I want to avoid losing more. I have tried using cheap, disposable foam ear plugs, but I am not satisfied with the sound quality I am getting with them. Are there better ear protection alternatives out there? [more inside]

Obscure 80's Indie New Wave songs

Hello. I am trying to locate a few recordings by obscure indie new wave bands that got stuck in my head in the 80's that I've been trying and failing to locate ever since.

The songs are "Genghis Khan," "Watch out Franco," and "Heart of a Boxer." [more inside]

Slang Lingo?

I have a friend who has been looking for a song with a line: When I was sixteen the American dream was not a thing of the past He thinks that it was a New Wave song from the early 80s. He's gone through old mix tape liner notes (tapes themselves are long gone) and thinks that it may be "Slang Lingo" by the Puppies but there's virtually no trace of that song on the internet.
