Tonight’s music pick is the SoCal punk/rockabilly outfit Social Distortion. I listened to alot of these guys this summer, blasting out of a crappy tapedeck (remember tapes?) on the back wall of the shop, wrenchin’ on my buddy’s van. I don’t know what album the tape was of. Mainly live numbers, with some studio stuff mixed in, i think it was a home-brew job.
I can’t hardly think of a better setting for Social D, gritty and in the shop, with us cussin’ and greasy in the pit, ‘cept maybe a good live show. Mike Ness and the boys are rollin’ into Vancouver pretty soon; too bad i’ll have to take a miss.
