Wishniaks Live on WKDU 1989

Wishniaks Live on WKDU from sometime in 1989 on Jackie’s show.

It was a very long time ago. It may have been our first performance for radio. I know we were psyched to be there. I remember the headphone mix sounding nothing like us and was a bit thrown by that. We played everything really fast, or sped up during tunes, which was kind of our m.o. Nice to hear what Jim Hostetter was doing on guitar and vocals. We always made such a racket live that I could never really tune in to what he was doing. This set is the band after our first e.p. came out and we were getting songs and our chops together for recording our album in Spring of ‘90. “Left in the Dark” is a cover of the Vertebrats. – except for the Vertebrats cover, all words and music by me, publishing: Bang Quack Music. Hostetter took some lyrical liberties live a la Westerberg. – Andrew Chalfen

Wishniaks were Andrew Chalfen (Trolleyvox, I Think Like Midnight) – Guitar, David Frank – Drums, James B. Moran – Bass & Jim Hostetter – Guitar & Vocals.

Thanks for the tape Jackie & for Andrew for making the files sound better.

Pedestrian Angels

Pedestrian Angels included Sam Steinig on Keyboards and Vocals, Eddie Beinlich on Drums, Henry on Vocals and Harmonica, Leonard on Bass and Rainy Orteca on Guitar. The band didn’t actually have an official name but Pedestrian Angels was one that was suggested and considered. They practiced in the basement of the Big Brothers Big Sisters building on N.13th Street where some of the members worked and where this practice was recorded. Pedestrian Angels only existed for two and a half months, in 1988, and never played a live show. In 1992 Sam and Eddie would start the band Mondo Topless. After Pedestrian Angles, Rainy played in the Philly bands Baby Flamehead and Gimme before moving to Brooklyn where she played bass for Joan Osbourne in 1995 and since 2004 can be heard playing bass in the band Joan As Police Woman.

Note: I didn’t have any kind of image for this post so I made a wings of desire (angels) pedestrian sign – this is nothing anyone in the band had anything to do with

Oblivion

Oblivion was formed in Philadelphia in the fall of 1984. Originally, the band was the four-piece lineup of Steve (who had formerly been bassist in YDI), Marc (ex-Kremlin Korps and Vatican Commandos), and Mick (formerly of Wasted Talent), with Todd Cote on vocals. After Todd left the band, Dave replaced him as singer, and Fil was brought on as second/lead guitarist. Oblivion played frequently in the Philly punk/hardcore scene between 1984-86, finally breaking up in late ’86.

Oblivion – 2-Song Demo Tape (1986)

1. Magic Theater (music: Lukshides, lyrics: Cote)
2. Judgment Day (music: Begnal/Lukshides, lyrics: Fernich)

The basic tracks for these songs were laid down at Philly’s Spectrum Studios in 1985, and then finished (with some overdubs) in 1986.
The image accompanying the first song in this video is a sticker that was printed at the time, while the photo appearing with the second track is a 1986 group shot.

Dave Wynter: vocals
Steve Lukshides: guitar
Fil Cerny: lead guitar
Marc Fernich: bass
Mick Begnal: drums

Live Kennel Club – February 19, 1986

This show was recorded at Philadelphia’s Kennel Club on February 19, 1986 and was one of our last, if not the last show. This gig didn’t start until about 1 AM due to equipment breakdowns that required trips in freezing cold weather for spare parts. Hopefully, the few hardy souls that stayed felt it worth their time. Members of the band were:

Mick Begnal – drums (also of Wasted Talent fame)
Fil Cerny – lead guitar
Marc Fernich – bass (ex-Kremlin Korps & Homo Picnic)
Steve Lukshides – rhythm guitar (ex-Y DI bass player)
Dave Wynter – vocals

WKDU Band Bash – October 5th 1985


No Milk

Post Punk early 80’s band that played the East Side CLub a lot. Judging by the article in Termial! (page 9) there may have been a lot of different people in the band during it’s short exsistance. The only one I know for sure is Chris Unrath (Baby Flamehead, Shimmers) since he posted the pictures which lead to getting the soundcloud link. (Thanks Chris & Rikki Ercoli)

Here’s a condensed history of No Milk – from Miguel H Gonzalez

Doug Rooney, guitar, and Cordy Swope, bass (later of Ruin) met 17-year-old Jeremy Klotz, drums (later of Physical Push) after the dissolution of The Ecstatics – whose members included Dave Bass, drums (later of Young Snakes) and Ron Gonzalez, guitar (later of Swans).

Ron’s my older brother. Doug went to HS with my sister. And Jeremy plus John Slepian were my friends at CAPA in Center City.

Singer Mark Rayment joined next. Then they added second guitarist Chris Unrath, who had had several bands with Mark that never took off beyond rehearsals. (One of which I was in along with Dave Martin.)

After No Milk opened for Killing Joke, local buzz really started taking off. But, Cordy left for Boston, so they recruited Dave Martin, bass (later of The Fad).

But then Jeremy decided to leave to start his own band with John Slepian, so I left Sadistic Exploits to join No Milk.

The quintet pictured is an early photo shoot around that time. We went on a 10-month tear locally plus a few gigs in DC (9:30 Club), Baltimore (Marble Bar) and Trenton (City Gardens). We recorded at Sigma with Mike Tarsia, and Lee Paris played “The No Milk Album” (actually a four-song EP) a lot.

But after opening for the Stray Cats at the ESC in July 1982, we fractured due to internal differences, stress, and what was probably more than a hot streak of burnout.

Later in 1982, Cordy returned from Boston and after reuniting with Doug found drummer Phil Fugelo (later of Mr. Mehta) and re-booted No Milk with Mark on vocals. As memory serves they played a handful of shows.

But ultimately closed the book. I like to think that No Milk spawned several interesting and important Philly bands — Ruin, The Fad, Mr Mehta, and Baby Flamehead among them.

I went on to play in Timi & The Dub Warriors with Chuck Treece among many great players. In the early 90s, I joined the eTribe with MT Giannone, another early 80s hardcore drummer.

Midnight sessions with Mike Tarsia engineering.
