Don’t they look just great in that early video?
I like the stage-dive panel.
I think it’s “Cunniff” with a C, though. yep: http://www.jillcunniff.com/
Looks like the Beasties probably spelled it wrong in their lyric sheet since every online lyric search spells it K single-N. In which case, the way you have it is more correct as a direct quote from your subject. Or possibly she spelled it that way back then as a punk version?
I bought the Polly Wog Stew ep from Dave Parsons when he used to sell records at CBGBs out of a shopping cart during the hardcore matinees. He was also the first guy in New York who was selling skateboard stuff too. Dave skipped out of town after owing a lot of money to a lot of people like the guys from Agnostic Front. It was a shame because Rat Cage was a familiar hang out for a lot of kids in the early NYHC scene.
Rollins info is incorrect, Henry got picked up by BF after a BF show and a Circle Jerks show at Pep lounge and Irving Plaza respectively; both bands met up at A7 for a Jam session/afterparty, Henry and others sang their fave songs w/the band, Henry sang “Screaming Fist” and got the green light after that…
Not according to Page 171 of American Hardcore: A Tribal History. Corroborated by Harley Flanagan and John Joseph. http://books.google.com/books?id=7AgdUYZ6U0wC&pg=PA198&dq=henry+rollins+171+avenue+a+black+flag&hl=en&sa=X&ei=nF03UeXELuf6yQHHyYHoBw&ved=0CDAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=henry%20rollins%20171%20avenue%20a%20black%20flag&f=false
