Link them.

I saw anteater at Logan's ages ago. Great show

I was at that show!   I’m good friends with the drummer and frontman.  
I just so happened to be in Victoria both times they played Logan’s.  
Once with a bunch of girl punk bands, and another with The Corps, Contra Code, and I think an island punk band

Yeah, Jesus Bonehead (Brian) owned Old Nick's Tshirt Factory.

He's a great guy to smoke n swear with when on a lunch break. Was pretty bummed when he shut down. 


Strung Out and No Use for a Name are two bands I love, it's just I didn't get I to them until after my formative years. So while I like them, they didn't influence my taste, but were a result of the other bands I've mentioned.

100 proof is one hell if a track.

Losing Tony Sly was heartbreaking.


Here is his best friend 

Remembering him

I gotta' admit that I am an idiot with regard to my past history on this topic. Initially I wasn't that interested in Punk as I viewed it as being too nihilistic, it was lacking in music ability (a quote from a review of a band back in the day - "Played their instruments with more energy than skill), and I avoided going to concerts here in Vancouver with various friends who were fully embracing this genre. I missed so many opportunities to see such great bands, and I kick myself quite often when I think about those times.


Vancouver scene:

The Disrags




No Fun


Pointed Sticks


The Subhumans


Tim Ray and AV (maybe more New Waveish?)




The Young Canadians (aka The K-Tels)


Perhaps a decade after Punk started to wind down, my interest started to ramp up, but as noted above, there wasn't a lot going on with that scene.

Brother you missed the best of the lot

Amazing album and tune, but this one introduced me to Rancid and redefined (to me) what a punk bassists job was... and then I spent 10 years trying to do wayyyy too much!



Lars Frederiksen from Rancid had this side project Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards

Anyone here into the Vancouver punk scene?   
There are a dozen HIGH quality bands coming from our town. 
Ive spent the last 15 years of my life touring and recording with punk, metal, and rock bands...... and to be totally honest, a couple here in Van are right up there with some of the best.  

The Corps- For a Fat Wrek style pop punk

AntEater- 90’s skatepunk/hardcore.  I think they broke up, but easily one of my favs. 
Contra Code- Technical shreddy punk. Awesome. 
Aanthems-  Heart and soul rock and roll.  Just two brothers.  One on bass, one drummer. Both sing.  They are straight up amazing people and musicians.  

Check it Foo!


I’ll send you links if you want....

You told me about The Corps a couple of years ago in connection with The Real McKenzies.


Thanks again for the tip,I love both bands.
