I never in a million years would've taken you for a Circle Jerks fan, Greg. They were a lot of fun though. Just this morning, "Defamation Innuendo" came up on my iPod on the way to work. What a wonderfully snotty, nasty band. I would've loved to have seen them around this time, too — even though this show is from the year I was born!

Well, just because I'm posting the photo doesn't mean I'm a fan, just a thorough photo archivist. Not that I don't like them mind you, but I wouldn't say I'm a fan. I'm probably haven't listened to them since college but maybe I'll give them another listen soon in your honor Ed.

Ah, yes, the Starwood. Any more pic's from that venue?

Greg said...

I'll see what I can dig up from there from time to time for this series.

"...and you can have your picture taken by Ed Colver..."

I forget what LA punk song that's from, but it strikes me as funny now that I knew so many of those bands and the work of Colver while still in my early teens.

The Circle Jerks' Golden Shower of Hits was a staple of my college dj'ing days. I don't know if their take on Afternoon Delight was better than Love Will Keep Us Together, as both were truly snotty and loud.

Austin, TX??? Nah, it was on the corner of S.M. Bl. & Crescent Hieghts. Rodney used to show up there. So Did MANY of the biggies in the Rock, Glam & Punk worlds... It all sorta mixed together & everybody was happy.

Don't forget their version of Put a Little Love in Your Heart.

My CJ fave will always be I've Got the World Up My Ass.
