Antiseen is both so far beyond what punk rock is usually seen as and exactly what punk rock should be. The lack of concern about anything but what they believe, an utter disregard for mainstream successNeuFutur Magazine
Here is the story.....ANTiSEEN started in 1983 with founding members Jeff Clayton and Joe Young. Named as a mis-spelling of the term anti - scene, meaning, against any scene that has it's own rules, code of conduct, fashion and chain of command by hip scenesters. It's only ROCK 'N" ROLL and we LOVE it!!!
By 1993 the group toured with what is now known as the "classic" line up of Clayton, Young, To
m OKeefe and Greg Clayton. A few personal changes later and we are with the current line up of Clayton, Young, Jon Bowman and Phil Keller.
The band has done five full European tours and played all over the USA .With well over 50 releases world wide (many already into numerous repressings) they started the "southern punk" image that many latch onto today. The band backed up now legendary scum lord GG ALLIN on his first post - prison release "MURDER JUNKIES" and also recorded with guitarist / song writer for the original ALICE COOPER group, Michael Bruce. Live shows consist of violent bursts of musical blitzkriegs,and an unhealthy dose of Pro Wrestling influence that features barbed wire wrapped baseball bats or crowns of barbwire that cause REAL bloodshed (another thing many have latched onto) and the occasional auto self destruct finale that got them labeled "Destructo Rock" early in the group's history.
Twenty five years later the band shows no sign of packing it in or making changes to impress any major labels ( so ....no turntables or djs kiddies). They call the Orange County based TKO RECORDS and the Philadelphia based Steel Cage Records . On September 20th, 2008 the band played it's 25 year anniversary show in it's hometown of Charlotte, NC which saw fans, friends and bands from all over the world coming in for the celebration. This marked the end of an era which had Greg Clayton and Doug Canipe saying goodbye after many years of dedication and service and hello to the new era with Bowman & Keller. Is the end in sight?Who knows? Until then.........FUCK ALL Y'ALL!!!!!!!
Sloppy Seconds is a Ramones/Dickies-influenced punk band from Indianapolis that started in the mid-1980s. With such underground hits as “Come Back, Traci” (a tribute to an underaged Traci Lords), “I Want ’em Dead”, and “So Fucked up”, the band prefers to sing about such topics as pornography, classic horror movies, old TV shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk. They have been quoted as being proud to be fat, drunk, and stupid.
Teenage Schizoid is a melodic street punk band from Chicago, Illinois.
Teenage Schizoid is the spawn of lead singer and bassist Jon-E-Boy's desire to start an awesome punk band with his best pal and drummer Ricky Rogers. Sometime in late 2011, after numerous attempts at a much younger age, Jon-E finally decided to take initiative and spent an entire winter cooped up in a basement re-teaching himself to play bass at a much higher level and writing the lyrics to what would eventually become the first wave of songs by Teenage Schizoid. At this point Ricky and Jon had not played together since their old band, Half Brain, had disbanded sometime in 2008. Jon-E tried to learn from the bands fatal mistakes and hoped to use it as fuel for the next one. This was the main reason he spent an entire winter working on the music before the band even materialized, he wanted there to be a foundation in place so that this band could thrive and eventually become something he was proud to call his own.
After the winter, he and Ricky finally started piecing songs together and got back into the groove of things, as one might put it. Initially they started in Ricky's parent's basement where the two of them worked on the songs that would eventually become "Self-Titled" and "Exile And Abuse". At this point there was no certainty of who the guitarist would be, previously they had tried starting a band with a friend Dan (a.k.a. Danny Warbux) in which Ricky would have been on guitar and Dan played drums. It was deemed a failure after only a couple of meetings. Around this time the 3 of them were attending a party at Ricky's girlfriend's place (Ironically, soon to be lead guitarist Charlie was also here) and Jon-E found Dan in a room tuning a 12 string guitar by ear and singing along with it. "Why the fuck haven't we tried you on guitar and Ricky on drums!?" he immediately exclaimed. And so it was.
They soon gathered in the garage of Jon-E's parents, forming a power trio, and writing the rest of the band's current material. Months went by as the band played through an excruciating winter in Chicago, most of the time they did not have any source of heat (they later were able to acquire space heathers to lessen the frigid environment) but in their eyes this proved the dedication it would take to have a successful band.
On January 26th, 2013, Teenage Schizoid made it's debut, playing a basement show with local Chicago Punk/Hardcore bands. Within 2 weeks they had seen the need for and recruited a lead guitarist to solidify their sound. The aforementioned Charlie Diefenthaler was the final piece to the puzzle and, voila, the current lineup was born. Since then they have been hitting the Midwest hard and are set to record in the studio for the first time July 21st, 2013. To hear some live recording you can visit the bands band camp page
Out of the ashes of , now defunct, Half Brain, Jon-E-Boy and Ricky decided to start playing the same great punk music they once shared the stage playing. This time around, they called on a good friend, Dan, to play guitar to complete the power trio. After a few months, they decided this would not suffice and needed a second guitarist. Charlie agreed to play and the current line-up was born.
