So excited!! A huge thank you to everyone involved, especially director @kona.blue and all the skaters! Repost from @kona.blue - It’s finally here! The new @alternativetentacles skate video is coming out on Turkey Day!
The skate decks are designed by @obeygiant and printed by @powellperalta with some sick Jello Biafra/Alternative Tentacles artwork.

Look, I don’t give a fuck about Brujeria, who they are or where their members come from. I think the gimmick is stupid and I don’t like them enough to buy any of their releases, but this one fell into my lap and I’ve listened to it enough to appreciate it for what it is. There’s way too much groove on the stuff that follows, but this 7” and the one before it are good fun. The album these two tracks came from, “Raza Odiada”, is probably okay, too, but I don’t think I could do a full-length of this stuff. I’ve always been confused as to why a label would release a single from an album on another label. I mean, I understand Alternative Tentacles made money from the sale of this record, but why would they stick their neck on the line promoting an album for Roadrunner? This copy comes from the second 1994 pressing. You can tell it from the first because the release number is printed on the B-side label where it’s missing from the other. #brujeria#elpatron#hermanosmenendez#grindcore#deathmetal#alternativetentacles#vinylcollection
We have owned our house for 12 1/2 years but today we found under a drawer in a utility cabinet left behind by the previous owners an interesting music-oriented artifact. It’s been in our house all this time and we didn’t even know it.
I'm generally not a record collector who goes after multiple copies of anything, but I do make an exception for a handful of bands, one of them being the Dicks (the best thing to come out of Texas after @amlululu ). The only thing I'm missing of theirs is an original of the Hate the Police 7", which will probably remain elusive unless I luck into a small fortune. Here are a few copies of their other excellent 7" - an original on R Radical Records, a bootleg version, and the reissue that was packaged with the Alternative Tentacles re-release of their These People album. #beatuprecords#thedicks#garyfloyd#rradicalrecords#alternativetentacles#punkvinyl
“Rock over London, Rock over Chicago, Rock at @no_fun_bar tonight!” Anyone else ever just marvel at @wesleywillis ‘s magic marker art? Dude was drawing these from the streets and overpasses of #sanfrancisco when @jello_biafra_gsm gave him a new life recording and touring with the demo button of an old Casio keyboard - “Say ‘Rock’” [headbutt] “Now say ‘Roll’” [headbutt] - the man loved his headbuttin and had a permanent bruise on his forehead from this. I truly respect Wesley Willis. .
