Joe sez, "Home page for one of the key (and best) bands to emerge thus far from the current 'Pop Underground.'"
--Descendents / All -
All Central. What can I say? They were influenced by The Last; David Nolte was in the original lineup; Bill Stevenson produced The Last for SST; both bands hail from the South Bay; and now Bill & Karl are members of The Last!

We linked to them a long time ago, but their site on AOL disappeared one day. Just ran across their new site today! One of Joe's favorite bands.
--Queef -
Former Last bassist Missy Buettner and drummer Robbie Rist are "unapologetically vulgar purveyors of F*ckcore Music." Their album Stinkin' Up the Joint is due this summer!

One of the infamous bands from the "Church" who, along with Black Flag, The Last and The Descendents, helped define the South Bay scene of the time. Cool site with lots of content.

A favorite band of Dan, Joe and Missy. They have a new CD & DVD out (Demons Dance Alone) and just finished playing a short tour in support of it.
--Sator -
These famed Swedish punksters were all set to record a version of The Last's unreleased classic "Go Away Girl." I don't think it ever happened as planned.
--Sparks -
"Nothing to do" with The Last (except they're both from LA, have both been involved with low-budget thrill movies that flopped ("Rollercoaster" and "Fade to Black," respectively) and former Sparks member Earle Mankey produced The Last's Gin and Innuendoes. Either way, Dan loves Sparks. They have a great new CD out - Li'l Beethoven. Check it out!

A great band who thankfully are back together, both playing and recording. Last keyboardist/songwriter Vitus Mataré recorded a number of their records, while Last bassist David Nolte recorded a 1998 demo for them and even played a few gigs with them on guitar. They have a new album about to be released this year (2003)!
--Wednesday Week -
Just one of the many bands of former Last bassist David Nolte. He joined this band and married the lead singer, Kristi Callan. They performed on the Joan Rivers Show the same night newcomer Arsenio Hall took over.

Pioneers in the LA punk scene - back together and touring!

Another great site devoted to many different classic punk bands from the US and Europe, such as Black Flag, the Screamers, Weirdos, Sex Pistols, Sham69 and more!
