=NAKED RAYGUN= Free Shit! Live In Chicago

Naked Raygun is a Chicago-based punk rock group. Initially active from 1980 to 1992, Naked Raygun had several short-lived reunions afterwards and a full-time reformation in 2006.
From the beginning, their music had a strong sense of melody and songwriting, although ofttimes their music devolved into a mashup of jungle jazz and rockabilly. Sadly, no music exists from that very early period. Later on, their lyrics often explored working class issues. Naked Raygun began as an arty punk band and were thought by some to be rather fey. After Camilo Gonzalez joined the band, their direction became more traditionally punk and some would place them in the hardcore punk pantheon. Later, they branched out into post-hardcore territory. By their early 1990s incarnation, Naked Raygun's melodic tendencies became more pronounced, with strong power pop leanings in the vein of Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers, and The Jam.

Nigel Lewis and Mark Robertson went on to play together in the Escalators with Woodie (drums/guitar) and Bart Coles (vocals/bass), a psycho/punk rock band (although with a similar sound to Nigel's Meteors vocal tracks) and released a couple of singles and an album which is widely regarded as one of the best on the Big Beat record label. However a serious back injury to Nigel stopped the band in their tracks.

= THE DAMNED =(1977) Birmingham Rebeccas Bootleg

With punk's history having entered a new millennium, the impact of the band initially judged "the least likely to" seems to grow ever more each day. The Ramones hold deserved pride of place for kick-starting the whole thing, while the Sex Pistols -- and to a lesser extent, the Clash -- helped take it to an even more notorious level, serving as role models for many young bands to this day. But arguably just as important and memorable were the Damned, London contemporaries of the Pistols and Clash that made their own mark from the start. Eschewing political posing, ill-fitting outside rhetoric, and simply doing the same thing over and over again, the group -- which lacked anything like a stable lineup -- took punk's simplicity and promise as a starting point and ran with it. The end result, at the group's finest: a series of inspired, ambitious albums and amazing live shows combining full-on rock energy, a stylish sense of performance, and humorous deadpan cool. Not necessarily what anyone would have thought when Ray Burns and Chris Millar met in 1974, when both ended up working backstage at the Croydon Fairfield Hall.

= SCREECHING WEASEL = Thank You Very Little (2xCDs)

Screeching Weasel is a punk rock that was formed in 1986 in Prospect Hts, IL, a suburb of Chicago. The band was initially founded as a trio featuring vocalist Ben Weasel (also playing bass at the time), guitarist Jughead, and drummer Steve Cheese. The group first called itself All-Night Garage Sale, but changed their name to Screeching Weasel after bassist Vinnie Bovine joined in December 1986. Bovine would be fired in January 1988. It would be the first of a number of line up changes that would affect the group's rhythm section throughout its lifespan. Bassist Danny Vapid joined the group in 1989 (he was called Sewercap at the time). The band split at the end of that year but reformed in 1991, at which time drummer Dan Panic joined the group. Although the group's line-up continued to fluctuate (upon the 1991 reformation, Vapid would move to 2nd guitar and remain there until moving back to bass in 1993; three bassists passed through the band during that time), the line up of Weasel/Jughead/Vapid/Panic is considered "classic" by most Screeching Weasel fans. The band split again in 1994 but reformed in 1996. Vapid and Panic left the group for good the following year. The bass position was filled by the band's longtime friend and Squirtgun member Mass Giorgini, who had also recorded and produced a number of the group's releases. Dan Lumley (also of Squirtgun) took over on drums and Zac Damon joined on 2nd guitar. Damon left the band in 1998 but was not replaced until 2000, when Phillip Hill (Teen Idols) joined the group. Although the band continued to record and release music at this time, the band did not play a single live show from late 1993 until mid 2000.

= HARD-ONS =(2006) Most People Are A Waste Of Time

One of Australia's most popular, most enduring, and most defiantly independent punk bands, the Hard-Ons have been around on and off since 1982. In that time they have been an influence on more than one generation of punk fans while earning respect from musicians around the world. Their own description their mix of punk, pop, and metal is "Motörhead playing the Beach Boys." Peter "Blackie" Black was one of many musicians inspired to form a band by the Sex Pistols. Unlike members of Joy Division and the Buzzcocks who got their inspiration from seeing them in the flesh, Black saw them on TV while he was a Sydney high-schooler. After rushing out to buy their album, he visited his friend Keish de Silva and told him they were forming a band, no questions asked.
