Kitschchao

Here is a great description of the band stolen from Nice Popper fanzine (I think)- Kitschchao were thee best punk band in Philadelphia during the early nineties. They released one 7″ single on Compulsiv Records and have an unreleased album floating around the East Coast on CDr. Singer Tristan Egolf went on to write 3 well known novels. Members of Kitschchao ended up in the bands Woodland Fruits, More Fiends, Apollo Creed, Dagobah System and D.T.O..

For my part in 1992 I attempted an ill-fated / not anywhere near enough cash to move – move to San Francisco which later called a vacation with all my stuff. In those maybe 2 months I was gone Kitschchao had started getting everyone’s attention and were reinvigorating the philly scene with some much needed influx of punk and fun. They were a great band to see live and you never knew what was going to happen. If you don’t believe me hopefully the pictures and video below will give you a glimpse of it.

Kitschchao, Temple of Bon Matin & Underagga -WKDU Band Bash

WKDU Band Bash

Seven videos I shot with a pixelvision kids camcorder from a WKDU Band Bash with Kitschchao, Temple of Bon Matin and Underagga.
I only made a few videos with this camera (I’ll put up the Fugazi ones later) but for those who aren’t familiar with it Fisher Price put this out as a camcorder for kids. It recorded the video (and audio) on regular cassette tapes (about 5 minutes on each side of a 90 minute audio tape) The results were a very artsy grainy black n white. These tapes were kind of old when I finally figured out how to get them first on a regular video tape and then digitalize later. More on Pixel Camcorder
As for the bands I could only identify one song which was Kitchchao covering Riverbottom Nightmare Band from Emmet Otter’s Jug-band Christmas. So if anyone can identify any of the other songs let me know and I’ll update them. (Correction- 2nd Kitschao is White Boy and 3rd is Just Like Always / The Message – Thanks Dave) The flyer for the show June 12th so I’m guessing this was probably 1993.
