Gunther 8544's 12,000-step program
This band is a shoo-in for the "grit rock" mixed CD I'm putting together.
Did you say 'grit rock'? TURN IT UP!!!!
Cool! Someone out of state who knows what a "grit" is! If that was an Autograph reference, 20 bonus grit points for you!
My grit era doesn't extend much past 1987, so I am quite unfamiliar with this band.
You'd dig 'em lots, Josh! The best elements of Crue, GNR and Skid Row all in one. Go back and peruse my review on DS. Two songs better than this one are "Suzy Suicide" and "Back On The Bitch."
There was a wall that particular 'heads' and 'grits' would sit on near the first high school i went to... it was just on the other side of the school property line, near a pizza joint. The kids who sat on this wall, which did include my brother, were known as WALL ROACHES.Grit is in mein heritage, even though I fought against it with UTFO.
I've called myself a "revisionist grit" more than once.Must've heard "Roxanne, Roxanne" every day when that song was at its most popular.
I was with the grits musically but never felt compelled to dress the part. How would I describe my fashion style circa mid '80s? Jeans and a Philadelphia sports t-shirt of some sort. Which, oddly enough, is my fashion style today.
I was a total poser in junior high school. Surf/skate fashions with parachute pants and Pumas? What a dipshit. Wish I'd had an influence like you back then. Didn't wear a pair of jeans until the 11th grade.
I think we should all start a revisionist grit club. It'll be like Hot Tub Time Machine with you, me, and Shawn. Except I still wouldn't look right in a denim jacket.
I was too fat for parachute pants. I have given up jeans, I only wear black kakis now... but I totally rock the denim jacket, which of course has a stilleto in the pocket.
Any patches on your jean jacket, Shawn?
When we go back in time and don our denim jackets, I'm getting the Saxon logo painted on the back of mine. I never wore parachute pants, but I must confess I rocked the Zubaz for a number of years in the early '90s.
Saxon? Now THAT'S revisionism! I'll have at least one patch from Ratt and Kix.
If I'd actually worn the denim jacket in junior high, it would have been Judas Priest's logo painted on the back. Circa 7th grade, they were my boys. But yeah, for time traveling purposes, I'm gonna go with Saxon. NWOHM cannot be beat.
No, no patches on the denim... Its more of a badge/pin jacket. I do have a Weidemann patch, a large coddger about 10"x15" that would look good on it though and would really be saying something in a sort of way...Who 'da man? WEIDEMANN
