stark raving mad - Live 1985
I stumbled across this cool video of the very underrated and great hectic Texan hardcore band STARK RAVING MAD. It looks like it might be in a school hall or something. Anyway, this band is spastic and crazy in sound, not unlike THE SCAM, and extremely fucking good. I think they shared a member with DRI too. Eric Wood loved them and you can tell they were a big influence on his bands...just listen to some of the bass lines.
The video delivers too; total bunch of weirdos and misfits (the band AND the crowd! Spot the fat kid near the front for example, wearing a bandana and open shirt. Hardcore)....
"This is a new song called 'Ignorance Is Gay'".
