  • Mouthfull - 16 QUEERCORE EXPLOSION #29

    2:47

    This playlist consists of tracks curated for an as-yet unreleased collection of early 90s queer rock and punk entitled Queercore Explosion! The songs are mostly from 1990-1995, to illustrate the queer punk rock explosion of the early 90s, a time when almost nobody in rock music was openly gay (even the ones you might assume were out were not). Some of this music overlaps with the Riot Grrrl movement of the same time. Listen, enjoy, and learn about a nearly secret underground musical movement that existed before the internet!

    An all-male English band, this track is from the Stop Homophobia 2 EP on Turkey Baster Records, 1995. They recorded a fine album that was unfortunately not released until a decade later, online, long after they had split.

    The Need formed in Portland and released a single on Outpunk in 1996 and their debut album (from which this song is taken) on Chainsaw in 1997. Though this ends outside the time frame of this compilation, it's included because Rachel Carns, on two other tracks of this compilation, ended up sounding like this in 1997, by which time the early raw punk had given way to new musical directions. Rachel has been in other groups since and continues making music today, as well as being an acclaimed artist and graphic designer.

  • Phranc - Everywhere I Go

    2:50

    For more from the Apology: Roasting The Go-Go's playlist click here:
    or check out

    Phranc - Everywhere I Go (I Hear The Go-Go's)

    Released as a bonus track on the 1985 re-release of her debut album Folksinger on Island Records. Written in the early 1980s (and released in 1985), this is Phranc's ode to the ubiquitous-ness of her punk rock compatriots the Go-Go's at the time. Having a great sense of humor about it all, the Go-Go's even had this track played immediately before they took the stage every night on their 1990 reunion tour.

    Phranc, the self-styled All-American Jewish Lesbian Folksinger, began her performing career in the late 1970s and early 1980s punk scene in Los Angeles. She had a bleach blonde crewcut and wore male attire creating an androgynous persona for her first band Nervous Gender, which formed in 1978. In 1980 she left Nervous Gender to join Catholic Discipline, in which Claude Bessey, journalist for Slash zine, was the lead singer. She was also in Castration Squad, an all-girl punk band. Phranc appears with Catholic Discipline in The Decline of Western Civilization, a documentary by Penelope Spheeris.

    In the 1980s Phranc pursued a solo career. She performs in Paul Morrissey's film Madame Wang's (1981) as Phranque. She began playing an acoustic guitar and released Folksinger on Rhino Records in 1985 (later licensed to Island Records). She opened for music acts such as The Smiths, Hüsker Dü, Violent Femmes, and Billy Bragg. Her second full-length album entitled 'I Enjoy Being a Girl' was released in 1989 with a third 'Positively Phranc', following in 1991.

    Phranc was an important influence on the Queercore movement, being acknowledged as such by Team Dresch in their song for her, Uncle Phranc. In the 1990s many queercore bands and musicians involved in that movement began collaborating with her. She appeared as a guest on the Team Dresch LP/CD Captain My Captain and, as well, members of Team Dresch, Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill, Patty Schemel of Hole and others played with Phranc on her EP Goofyfoot and other songs. Phranc performed and was interviewed in the queercore documentary 'She's Real, Worse Than Queer' by Lucy Thane and she has appeared frequently at queercore events such as Olympia's Homo-a-go-go festival. On her full-length CD of 1998, Milkman, she is joined by Steve McDonald of Redd Kross fame, who plays bass. Her most recent releases, including Milkman, appear on her own independent record label, Phancy Records.

    The 2001 documentary film Lifetime Guarantee, directed by Lisa Udelson, chronicled Phranc's life with a focus on her day job as a Tupperware consultant. Phranc lives with her partner and children in Santa Monica, California, and continues to sell Tupperware. She performs occasionally, but spends more time working on creative visual art projects, including the Cardboard Cobbler sculptures. In December 2007 she had a solo art show at Cue Art Foundation in New York City curated by Ann Magnuson; the New York Times review compared her work to Claes Oldenberg and Andy Warhol.

  • team dresch - 1993·1998/2004...

    1:38

    La formación en el primer álbum (1995) estaba compuesta por:
    -Donna Dresch, fundadora de la banda y de Chainsaw Records, bajista, guitarrista y vocalista. Venía de bandas como DINOSAUR JR, FIFTH COLUMN, RASTRO! o SCREAMING TREES.
    -Kaia Wilson, guitarrista y vocalista. Venía del grupo ADICKDID.
    -Marci Martinez, baterista. Había tocado en CALAMITY JANE y LA GRENUDA.
    -Jody Bleyle, fundadora de Candy-Ass Records, bajista, guitarrista y vocalista. Tocaba también en las bandas HAZEL y LOVEBUTT.

    En el segundo álbum (1996) toca la batería Melissa York, que venía de las bandas BORN AGAINST y VITAPUP. Después Kaia y Melissa dejan la banda para formar junto a Alison Marlew THE BUTCHIES, y Dona y Jody continúan grabando con la incorporación de la guitarrista Amanda Kelly y la vuelta de Marci a la batería.

    Como participantes de la escena queercore, formaban parte de diferentes proyectos feministas, musicales, artísticos, de comunicación... bajo la cultura Hazlo Tú Mismx (organizando sus giras por ellas mismas, editandose en sus propios sellos, publicando zines…)

    Las letras tratan temas como la sexualidad (todas las músicas de la banda son lesbianas), el acoso, la violación y la autodefensa. En algunos de sus conciertos les acompañaba su profesora de autodefensa, que informaba y hacía demostraciones ante el público.

    La banda para de tocar en 1998, con Donna muy atareada grabando bandas queercore en su sello. Marci y Amanda pasan a tocar en VEGAS BEAT. En 2004 Donna vuelve a los escenarios con DAVIES VS DRESCH, que forma parte del Queercore Blitz (colectivo de bandas queer de tour conjunto por EEUU) y en 2012, Jody forma el grupo FAMILY OUTING .

    En 2004, Jody, Donna, Kaia, Marci y Melissa salieron juntas para encabezar el festival queercore “Homo-a-Go-Go” en Olympia, y desde entonces la banda ha vuelto a tocar esporádicamente.

    Discografía | Su primer single fue Hand Granade y su primer álbum fue Personal Best (1994). Después participaron en el LP Free to Fight, una compilación de bandas compuestas por mujeres.
    Su segundo álbum fue Captain my Captain (1995), y también sacaron singles compartidos con otras bandas como BIKINI KILL, LONGSTOCKING y THE AUTOMATICANS.

  • Automaticans - Audrey

    2:28

    Automaticans - Audrey.

    If ever there was a hard recording to find - it's this one. Only appearing on a limited split 7 single with Team Dresch in 2000, it took me ages to track down a copy of this song in any format anywhere, but I persisted and finally recently came across an mp3 of it somewhere online. The wait was worth it - another gem from the pen of singer Tamala Poljak, formerly of L.A. based queercore indie pop band Longstocking.

    Automaticans were an L.A. supergroup of sorts. Singer/guitarist Poljak had performed in the previously mentioned Longstocking (as well as Oiler and Fleabag to name a few); Guitarist/vocalist Patricia was also in the band Patsy and bassist Toast performed in The Ray-O-Vacs, The Neptunas and The Paper Tulips as well as booking bands at legendary downtown L.A. rock dive Al's Bar. Sadly, Audrey was the only official release from the band, as the band seemingly dissipated shortly after it's release in 2000. Half of the band (Poljak and drummer Scottie) would go on to perform with another supergroup The Infinite X's which also featured members of Team Dresch and The Little Deaths. The Infinite X's released an excellent self-titled debut album in 2002 on Chainsaw Records.

    Fun fact: The subject of the song Audrey is reported to be none other than Audrey Marrs, former lead singer of the Olympia based band Mocket and now Academy Award nominated producer of the film No End in Sight, a documentary about the American occupation of Iraq. On January 22, 2008, No End in Sight was named by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as one of 5 films nominated for a prize in the Best Documentary Feature category. As of December 2007, the film had grossed $1.4 million, and had been released on DVD. Wow - who knew? (Gotta love wikipedia.) Go Audrey - and congratulations!

  • RED WEDDING - All Dressed Up

    3:35

    RED WEDDING - Anthology 1981​-​1985, Synthetic Shadows label (SS014), march 2014.


    LOS ANGELES POST-PUNK. QUEERCORE. CONTROVERSIAL. UNPREDICTABLE. OVER-THE-TOP. PART PUNK. PART GLAM. PART GOTH. PART PSYCHEDELIC.
    RED WEDDING WAS ALL OF THESE THINGS.

    Although the 70's were a time of discovery, the 80's were a time of impact. The 80's underground music scene in Los Angeles was a time of re-invention and experimentation. It was one mind expanding experience after another. There was so much music, performance art, theater, creativity in all forms that one could hardly keep up. It was downtown L.A. with Brave Dog, Al's Bar, Anti Club, Atomic Café, Gorky's, never ending loft parties and other venues. It was Chinatown and SilverLake and a little trashy biker / leather bar called the One Way which came to be home of the notorious Theoretical. And in the center of this underground scene, there were amazing bands including WildKingdom, Nervous Gender, Party Boys, Fat and Fucked Up, Christian Death, Age of Consent and Red Wedding.

    Founded in 1981 by the power couple (both on and off stage) of Michael Ely and Spider Taylor, Red Wedding first debuted at the Brave Dog, a small hole-in-the-wall, but iconic club in downtown Los Angeles and they quickly became the house band. After the club was closed for serving alcohol without a license, Red Wedding moved on to playing the biggest clubs in L.A. and San Diego sharing the stage with bands and performers such as Killing Joke, Nina Hagan, Psi Com (an early incarnation of Jane's Addition), X, Romeo Void, Bow Wow Wow, Specimen, Kommunity FK, The Bangs (an early incarnation of The Bangles), Suburban Lawns, Redd Kross and 45 Grave. Referring to Red Wedding's performances, Craig Lee of L.A. Weekly wrote The songs remind one of a trip to Disneyland -- they turn and circle back into themselves through mood and key changes, with surprise characters popping in and out, finally reaching cathartic emotional and dramatic climaxes, Red Wedding's music is completely their own invention.

    Michael Ely was the lyricist and singer (known for his dark, but witty prose and dramatic stage presence) and Spider Taylor was the guitarist (known for his sonic, yet sensual guitar playing). Other members over the years included Marc O (keyboards), John Tagliavia (bass guitar), Brian Ford (drums), Brian Engel (drums) and Warren Mansfield (bass guitar).

    In 1982, Red Wedding performed at the first Theoretical party (a series of gay-friendly parties featuring L.A. bands, parties that continued for the next decade). Also in 1982, Red Wedding released their first EP titled Up and Down the Aisle, Produced by Thom Wilson (who also produced the first Christian Death album that same year), the EP received many accolades for thinking outside the box. Billboard magazine wrote Southern California now plays host to an entire bevy of postpunk bands which rival anything that's coming out of England at the moment. Red Wedding is one of the best of the bunch.

    In 1984, Red Wedding released a second EP produced by Leslie St. James titled Nails again to much praise. In Touch Magazine described the album as Sort of psychedelic, sort of dancey, sort of mystical, sort of bat cavish and added Send this record to David Bowie immediately and let's hope we don't have to wait for two years to get the next one.
    In 1985, the band recorded a third EP produced by Ed Grundman and Rick Hart which was never released. After nearly five years of intense creativity and burning the candle on both ends, Red Wedding came to an end.

    Today Michael and Spider live in Tucson, Arizona composing soundscapes for documentaries and film (having released four CDs). As of December 2013, they will have been an openly gay couple for 42 years.

Here are 10 bands keeping the queercore spirit alive today.

    This playlist consists of tracks curated for an as-yet unreleased collection of early 90s queer rock and punk entitled Queercore Explosion! The songs are mostly from 1990-1995, to illustrate the queer punk rock explosion of the early 90s, a time when almost nobody in rock music was openly gay (even the ones you might assume were out were not). Some of this music overlaps with the Riot Grrrl movement of the same time. Listen, enjoy, and learn about a nearly secret underground musical movement that existed before the internet!

    Sister Double Happiness featured legendary queer lead vocalist Gary Floyd, who was brazenly out in the early 80s with his Austin, Texas hardcore band The Dicks. SDH was a hard rock, bluesy punk band from San Francisco who had recorded for SST, Warner Brothers, and Sub Pop, and in 1993 released the CD Uncut on Dutch East India Records. While not a new band inspired to be out and make queer punk, this track earns its place here. Gary also made solo albums and formed the band Black Kali Ma in the late 90s, and still plays the occasional Dicks reunion show.

  • Huggy Bear -- Pansy Twist QUEERCORE EXPLOSION #15

    2:15

    Huggy Bear was a mixed-gender London group with releases on Wiiija (UK) and Kill Rock Stars (US), including a split LP with Bikini Kill. This is from their LP Taking The Rough With The Smooch, 1993.

    This playlist consists of tracks curated for an as-yet unreleased collection of early 90s queer rock and punk entitled Queercore Explosion! The songs are mostly from 1990-1995, to illustrate the queer punk rock explosion of the early 90s, a time when almost nobody in rock music was openly gay (even the ones you might assume were out were not). Some of this music overlaps with the Riot Grrrl movement of the same time. Listen, enjoy, and learn about a nearly secret underground musical movement that existed before the internet!

  • ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead - Gone

    4:05

    Purchase:
    Artist: ...And You Will Know Us by The Trail of Dead
    Album: X: The Godless Void and Other Stories (2020)
    Label: InsideOutMusic

    Official:

    Spotify:

    An unlikely but powerful combination of punk fury and prog rock ambition, ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead started out as fiery iconoclasts and gradually refined their attack over their multi-decade career without losing any of their passion. In the late '90s, their cathartic live shows and propensity to destroy their gear translated to early manifestos like 1999's Madonna, but when they added more control and polish to their music on 2002's landmark major-label debut Source Tags & Codes, they created one of the most epic alternative rock albums of the early 2000s -- a time when epic rock wasn't exactly fashionable. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead's fondness for grand gestures, as well as the intricate yet expansive sounds of Pink Floyd and Yes, informed later works such as 2005's Worlds Apart, and their maverick spirit led them to release several albums, including 2009's The Century of Self, on their own imprint. The band stayed true to their fervent yet philosophical approach in the 2010s and beyond, resulting in triumphs like 2011's Tao of the Dead and 2020's X: The Godless Void and Other Stories, which found Trail of Dead celebrating their 25th anniversary with renewed vigor.

    The earliest version of ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead was formed in late 1994 by singers/guitarists/drummers Jason Reece and Conrad Keely, a pair of longtime friends who met in Hawaii and settled in the indie hotbed of Olympia, Washington. There, Reece drummed for bands including the queercore outfit Mukilteo Fairies and Honeybucket, while Keely played with Benedict Gehlen and Nancyville as he studied at Evergreen State College. After relocating to Austin, Texas, Keely and Reece began playing shows as You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, eventually adding both the conjunction and the ellipsis to the band's name.

    They soon recruited guitarist Kevin Allen and bassist/sampler Neil Busch, thus transforming from an indie two-piece into an arty quartet. After contributing the song Novena Without Faith to the 1995 cassette compilation Austin Live Houses and issuing a live cassette on the local Golden Hour label, AYWKUBTTOD signed to Trance Syndicate, the label owned by the Butthole Surfers' King Coffey. Early in 1998, they released their self-titled debut, which captured the energy of their already legendarily anarchic concerts. Following the label's collapse, the band moved to Merge Records, recording Madonna with producer Mike McCarthy and releasing it in late 1999. The band re-teamed with McCarthy for their 2002 Interscope debut, Source Tags & Codes, which earned widespread acclaim for its elaborate instrumentation and formidable songwriting. Appearing in 2003, The Secret of Elena's Tomb EP continued Source Tags & Codes' mix of anthemic rock and reflective ballads.

    In 2004, drummer/percussionist Doni Schroader joined the band's lineup along with bassist Danny Wood, who replaced Busch. With 2005's Worlds Apart, AYWKUBTTOD's music became more intricate, and with the addition of touring keyboardist David Longoria, they became a six-piece for the lengthy tour supporting the album. Though Worlds Apart earned critical acclaim, its sales were disappointing. However, AYWKUBTTOD found inspiration in their frustration and bounced back with So Divided, another ambitious set of songs, in November 2006. Further lineup changes followed: Keyboardist Clay Morris stepped in for Longoria, drummer Aaron Ford replaced Schroader, and Wood was replaced by bassist Jay Leo Phillips. In 2007, the band composed the music for the roller derby documentary Hell on Wheels and toured internationally.

  • ASSKICKATRON - Fagatron

    1:48

    I took the liberty of uploading a few of my favourite Fagatron songs since it's impossible to find any on Youtube beyond a handful of covers. I tried to find some sort of way to contact the band and ask permission but they've been broken up for quite a few years now and the only trace of them is their S/T on CDBaby. Go buy the album if you like these songs.

    From the last.fm page:
    Fagatron started in Lincoln, Ne in 1996, inspired by the then current queercore movement on the west coast. it consisted of Abe Miner on vocals and bass, and Jeromy Ogg on drums and vocals. Both were seventeen and still in high school when the band was formed. Fagatron played around the midwest for a few years, playing in Minneapolis, Lincoln, and MIssouri before releasing a seven inch in 1998. They then broke up(for the first time).

    Both met up four years later when both had moved to the west coast in 2002. Fagatron played several shows in Olympia, Portland and Seattle. They recorded a full length album on Agitprop records as well as a split with Ninja Death Squad. They then broke up. Again.
    Their music consisted of pop, thrash, hardcore, and old school punk
