Fucked Up

Ryan's official shift at the 12-hour Fucked Up show was really only 4-6, but he got there a little late and stayed much longer. John Joseph did two Cro-Mags songs with Fucked Up ("Malfunction" and "Life of My Own"). Tim Harrington sang "Over the Edge" by Underdog, "Victim in Pain" by Agnostic Front, and then moshed while someone grabbed the mic and sang Agnostic Front's "Last Warning" F'd Up played "Blitzkrieg Bop" by the Ramones twice. First with Moby singing and then later with Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend singing. Moby also did "12XU" by Minor Threat and "Nervous Breakdown" by Black Flag. Ezra also sang "Parents" by the Descendents and a Blitz song. J. Mascis did "Chunks" by Last Rites (a song D Jr often covers) with them while Matador's Gerard was on guitar and then J. played drums while Fucked Up played "I Saw It" by Deep Wound. Fucked Up of course played lots of hardcore and punk covers on their own too, and even some originals. Pictures of it all below...

12XU is not a Minor Threat song, its Wire. Minor Threat covered it.

12XU is a wire song originally.

12XU is a Wire song covered by Minor Threat.

Although I always loved Minor Threat, the lyrics seem incredibly homophobic. Anyone know if there's a different intent behind the lyrics?

Seems like it probably smelled pretty bad in there.

i was there almost the whole time. this band gets a lot of shit for being schticky and i get they deserve it sometimes. but this show was as real as real can be and i have some new respect. so many mind-bending guests cuz damian said a few times - "every cool person in pop culture has some hardcore in them". it had the spirit of $5 shows at my local VFW. great time.

Hard times are comin your way
You're gonna have to rise above it some day
Organize your life and figure it out
Or you'll go under without a doubt

Hard times! Hard times!
Seems i'm bein forced into a mold
Hard times! Hard times!
Forcin me and i'm growin cold

Hard times are coming through
But if your hard they won't get to you
They're gonna try to drive you into the ground
But never surrender, never go down!

Hard times! Hard times!
Seems i'm bein forced into a mold
Hard times! Hard times!
Forcin me and i'm growin cold

Cromag!
Skinhead!
Breakout!
Now!

the wire and minor threat versions of 12XU are so different, it's easy to tell which band's version was being "covered."

the singer of vivian girls made eye contact with me. maybe you should try being taller.

so many obnoxious people in such a small space. ugh.

Scroll 1/4 of the way down to the picture of the guy in the black t-shirt pushing off of lead singer's head.

It seriously looks like he's got an entirely sleeve-tattoed dick that's he's about to thrust into the dude's ear.

Seriously.

Don't be hatin' son.

yeah singer in vivian girls, please us please us, meet our desperate ego needs!

Posted by jim | October 16, 2008 10:24 AM

don't hate on Sweeney, you ass. he was probably the most talented person on the stage that day. he may be a bit of an underachiever, but what he does accomplish is fucking great.

(except for zwan, maybe, but i'm assuming that was just for the paycheck.)
