Brother JT with Jamie Knerr on drums Live from WKDU’s Studio – Sunday, June 3, 2012. Brother JT got started in 1985 or so, had a garage band called the Original Sins, then reincarnated as Brother JT in the early ’90’s. Had albums out on Siltbreeze, Drunken Fish, Drag City, and Birdman. Have been self-releasing for the last few years, most recent effort being Tornado Juice, which is available from his website, The video was just shoot with my phone during the in studio and then synced with the audio from the board.
Both of these compilations tapes were put out by Chainsaw Fanzine from Bethlehem PA. After I posted I learned that this fanzine was put out by Dick Destiny of Dick Destiny & The Highway Kings.
On the Annoy Your Neighbor tape Senseless Hate, Tony T And The Bad Seeds, and Russian Meatsquats were from the Lehigh Valley. Some members of Tony T were later in Original Sins.
On the Please Stop tape Suburban Aggression and Professor Schnitzer were from Reading, Senseless Hate was from Bethlehem, and Wasted Talent was from State College PA. The drummer, Mick Begnal, from Wasted Talent was later in the Philly band Oblivion.
Two shows from the 1980s Garage revival legends. Original Sins formed 1985 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.and continued through much of the 1990s releasing many records. The Khyber show was without their keyboard player. Both shows were recorded from the audience and have good sound quality.
Can anyone fill in the song titles?
They have a facebook page here.
Also defiantly check out Brother JT’s records on his site or bandcamp and the two other current bands RunHideFight & Suffacox mach2 (original Suffacox led by the late & legendary Wayne Hamilton) he is in.
Thanks for the tape files Brett Noise Addiction II
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...
