The post over at Terminal Escape reminded me had I had a Fuckboyz tape I've been meaning to share...
bout 17 years ago I saw the mighty Fuckboyz in Los Angeles, and somehow struck up a conversation with guitar player Matty in which we ended up agreeing to exchange some of my GG Allin videos for a video of his band and The Gargoyles. Along with the video he sent, I got this tape of various live Fuckboyz mayhem.
Funny punk covers of new wave songs is a long lost art, and one that I hope never gets revived. At the time though, sped up versions of early MTV hits such as "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" or "Kids in America" were a fun way to fill out a set -unless you were the Dickies and 90% of your songs are covers to begin with.
Anyways, enjoy the drunken spectacle that was the great, late Fuckboyz featuring the great, late Matty Luv on guitar.
