Destroy! Oh Boy!

And another domino of fatherhood falls this Saturday as the tribes split up for a nite of “punk” rawk. Princess Nomad is off to the Bamboozle Roadshow (the alt/emo/newpunk festival). She will be our intrepid correspondent as she will report on the bands. Your humble tour guide will be in another county, catching the NEW BOMB TURKS!


The princess has been to 20 or so shows in her time ranging from the N Syncs and Britneys and Demi Lovatos. And responsible father I am, I have escorted her to a few punk fests (a couple of WarpedTours come to mind). But, despite her abandoning me last year for her friends and leaving her loving Daddy plus his buddy forlorn in the beer tent (OK, we weren’t forlorn, we were actually pretty happy to be be drinking icy cold beer on a 100 degree day), she has never been without a grown-up somewhere in the surroundings. My 16 year old daughter… adrift amongst the Hot Topic masses. Woe is me.

Daddy-O will be far more irresponsible than my little cupcake; as the New Bomb Turks will FUCK YOU UP, even without John Barleycorn. Of course, the demon stuff never hurts! Christ, the Turks are just plain nasty. It's that middle America white trash roch n roll that has a direct line from The Trashmen through The Stooges through The Dead Boys through The Replacements. One leaves their shows and needs to peel a layer of skin off. Musical hydrochloric acid. Fuckin A! Your ears hurt, your eyes bleed, and your bones crumble.

Or something.

So, it’s a line-up of bands for the under 21’s like Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Forever The Sickest Kids and Boys Like Girls… versus... the New Bomb Turks, Live Fast Die, and The Ex-Whites.

No contest!

ps... I love this version of Joy Division's "The Drawback"

Love the New Bomb Turks - I saw them a few times in columbus at Stache's (most awesome music venue no longer in existence). It's funny you mention The Stooges - I recently started listening to Raw Power, the influence on Eric's singing is hard to miss. Love the blog by the way. Keep it up.

I'm a couple years behind you with my 14YO son. I took him and his friend to "The Big Four" (thrash metal movie) this week, and they were talking about wanting to go to their first Warped Tour this summer. Don't know about that, but I'm sure I'd rather see the New Bomb Turks. "Id Slips In"!!!
