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.

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


Mudpie on WKDU

Mudpie on Jackie’s WKDU show from Wednesday August 10, 1988
The members of the band were:
Steven – Guitar, vocals, percussion
Tom – Bass
Bernie – Drums, backing vocals

Mudpie 1987-88 Bio

Steven and Tom (gtr/vocals and bass, both from Lancaster’s The Real Gone & Jack Lord’s Hair) formed Mudpie in Philadelphia in the fall of 1987, recruiting Bernie (drums, backing vocals, ex- Lost Barbeque & More Fiends) at Philadelphia Record Exchange. They rehearsed at Bernie’s West Philly twin near 49th and Springfield, sharing the basement with Trained Attack Dogs and Van Gogh’s Ear.

Mudpie played at local haunts like Bacchanal and Tops in 1988, and recorded two tapes: the best-left-unheard “Mudhenge,” and the “York” EP. Their sound at the time was influenced by contemporary power trios like Volcano Suns, Minutemen/Firehose, Dinosaur, Huskers, Agitpop, etc. The name was inspired by Budgie.

This live WKDU set in August 1988 was the next-to-last performance of this line-up. After that, Steven went on to play drums in Blue for a spell.

Steven and Tom reformed Mud Pie sideways as a very different home-recording outfit from 1989-1992. Tom also formed Rocknoceros in the early 90s. In 2003 Steven and Tom re-formed and continue to the present day as Mud Pie Sun, releasing several tapes and CDs and occasionally playing live.
Thanks for the Tapes Jackie & Diego and Tom for the info & images

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.
