Gelcaps

The Gelcaps began as a solo project in 1993 with Derelict Hotel alumnus Doug Anson making improvisational music on a cheap guitar, Casio keyboard and effect pedals. In ’94 he started working with Vibrolux guitarist John Boothman, a.k.a “the king of noise.”

Anson played chunky and repetitive rhythm guitar riffs while Boothman filled out the soundscape with drones and plinks. The band’s first EP, Death Star From Budokan, was a remarkable balance of catchy pop-punk and trippy noise rock.

After going through several members, the lineup solidified in the fall of ’95 when bassist Mark Nolan and drummer Spencer Sweeney joined the ranks. They kept the bottom end just tight enough to give the arrangements structure and depth. The second Gelcaps release, the single “Cows,” was more straight-ahead, but still memorable.

A few months later, they started work on their third release. Songwriting was going so well that by the time July rolled around, the single had turned into a mini-album entitled 24 Hour Pythons.

In late July, everything fell apart. Boothman quit the band over creative differences. On July 27, Nolan died in a drug-related accident.

Fabulous Fondas

I was working on putting up the Fabulous Fondas’ demo tape called eight original hits when I noticed it was already available on Bandcamp. But, I still wanted to add a post of them and just  use the bandcamp links instead of the files I made. The Fab Fondas were Rocco Sacco (vocals) Bill Fergusson (lead & rhythm guitar) Brain McGillin (rhythm guitar & vocals) Pete McCoubrey (bass & vocals) & Todd Yoder (drums & vocals)
Thanks for the tape Jackie

Live on Marina’s show February 16, 1999

I am in the process of digitizing a bunch of live on WKDU tapes from Marina – she had a lot of bands on her radio show in the 90s and mostly they have been un-shared until now. To start off here is More Fiends live on WKDU from February 16, 1999.
I believe this is the last lineup for More Fiends (?) with  Allen Fiend = bass, Elizabeth Fiend = side guitar, Bob Fiend = guitar (currently in the Pogos), Dave Fiend = drums (ex Kitschchao, Belligerent)

Red Paint People

Red Paint People put out a couple of 7″s and where on some compilations (including Scrabble.) They played brutal, bone-rattling rock and roll much in the vein of the Amp Rep/Touch & Go bands of the same time. In the early 90’s they played a lot of shows in Philly and along with Kitschchao brought a loud hardcore influenced rock back to the scene. The band was made up of Chris Hunter on guitar (Little Gentlemen, If, Goats, MothraDTO , Eric Hammarberg on bass (Double Penetration, Ben Arnold) Stroller on Drums and there singer was Matt.
