When I arrived at the First Unitarian Church (Philadelphia's bastion for larger scale DIY shows) I was greeted by perhaps the longest line I've ever witnessed at the venue. Dillinger Four live is a rare commodity, and apparently one that Philadelphia's punk fans weren't willing to miss. After fig.


When I arrived at the First Unitarian Church (Philadelphia's bastion for larger scale DIY shows) I was greeted by perhaps the longest line I've ever witnessed at the venue. Dillinger Four live is a rare commodity, and apparently one that Philadelphia's punk fans weren't willing to miss.

After fighting off the cold, the jagged-toothed homeless that roam around outside the Church, and the stares of those unable to score tickets, I entered the venue to the sounds of local Philly act Mischief Brew. The band played a rollicking set of music that was equal parts street punk and rockabilly with lyrics that leaned towards the political. The band's energy was high, and they even had enough fans for a solid sing-along or two, but the singer's forced sneer grew grating at times.

Canadian punk act Fucked Up then took the stage and belted out some massively loud old-school-tinged hardcore tunes. Their set wasn't bad, but after a few songs it seemed you knew all the band's tricks, both musically and stage presence-wise.

Paint It Black was next to rock, and having seen them a few times now, in a few different incarnations, I can honestly say was the best performance I have ever witnessed from them. Dan Yemin was truly electrified, putting to shame front-men ten years his minor with his devious scowl, throbbing neck veins, and kung fu-like freak-outs. Yes, I said kung fu-like freak-outs, because on multiple occasions Yemin left his preferred Henry Rollins stance to cut loose with swinging arms and legs. Bassist Andy Nelson was also in his usual run amuck state as he violently swung his bass and teetered on the edge of the stage.

Yemin and company opened with "Ghosts" and then flew through their set, which included songs such as "Atticus Finch," "Election Day," "Pink Slip," "Cannibal" (the song with the best opening scream since Ian MacKaye's on "Guilty of Being White"), "CVA," "The New Brutality," "Void," "The Insider," "365," "Womb Envy," and "Panic." To end their set, as they always do now, the band played "Memorial Day." Being in Philly, Dave Hause just happened to be on the side of the stage with beer in hand, and was more than willing to throw down his vocal parts on the set's closer.

The commentary that Yemin usually dabbles in between songs was kept to a minimum; at one point he even said, "Let's get the politics out of the way," and then fired off short declaratives such as, "Republicans, evil. Politicians, liars. Organized religion, tool for social control. Gay marriage, thumbs up." His most interesting comment of the day however might have been when he said, "Punk and hardcore are like the Harry Potter of independent music. You are embarrassed to tell your friends you are reading the books, even though they contain plenty of literary allegory and a great story." Yemin then clarified his comparison by saying that Paint It Black does want to have fun, but they also want to bring some intelligence into a genre that people often view as anti-intellectual.

Hard Skin, a fake skinhead band from England, were next to take the stage. The three-piece offered a set that was equal parts stand-up and musical performance, opening with the comment, "Paint It Black said what they stood for, now we will tell you what we stand for: Getting pissed and getting laid." The band played catchy-as-all-hell Oi! tunes whose lyrics were almost as ridiculous as the band's banter. Songs titles like "A.C.A.C. (All Coppers Are Cunts)," "Copper Cunt" and "Oi, Not Jobs" should give you some idea of what I am talking about.

Hard Skin not only prompted many a sing-along, but also many a laugh, as between songs they spent most of their time insulting the other bands on the bill. Their bassist said his band wanted to sell out and build community just like Paint It Black did by "Putting that song on the Tony Hawks (sic) DVD." He also said that the members of Fucked Up took part in England's newest trend, "Straight on straight gay sex," and that Paddy from D4 was a "fat fuck," a comment made all the more ridiculous by the fact that Hard Skin's bassist is himself a man of immense girth. At one point during their set a naked concert-goer climbed onto the stage and the bassist announced mid-song, "They make them a lot smoother here in the U.S."

Now let me stop right here and say that although the show up until this point was far from disappointing, Paint It Black were incredible, and Hard Skin, if nothing else, were a sight to behold; my score for this show mainly pertains to the incredible amount of devotion and passion that Dillinger Four exhibited. In fact, I debated merely writing "Holy fucking shit!" about a hundred times to describe Dillinger Four's set, but decided I'd give you a bit more than that.

After setting up their equipment, the performance started on a bit of a somber note. Paddy came up to his mic and stated that he had been trying to go around being all "nonchalant and professional," but that he had to be straightforward with us instead. He then explained to the crowd that he has ulcers and spent the weekend very sick and vomiting. Now this disclosure was definitely a downer, but because this is Paddy, he quickly followed his comment up by saying that he had a puke bucket on the stage and that, "Since we are using someone else's equipment and it will probably sound like shit, and I am puking, that means this is going to be old school!" The band then launched into "Mosh for Jesus," the crowd immediately surged forward with a hundred fingers pointing to the ceiling, and any signs that Paddy was sick or that someone else's amps were being used were non-existent.

Dillinger Four moved through their set with their typical high energy, but after a few songs it became apparent that something was missing. That something was the usual comic insight of Paddy. At first he got out a few jokes, saying he brought this sickness on himself and that punk rock wasn't the Harry Potter of independent music, but the scientologist work Dianetics. It wasn't until a few songs in that Paddy's silence became apparent. He spent more time by his amp and puke bucket than his mic, while his bandmates tried to fill in for him in the joke department. At one point Billy was even asking the crowd how many times they thought Paddy would puke before the end of the set.

It seems that at this point many bands would have called it quits, but in true "the show must go on" fashion, Paddy would march to the mic for his vocal duties and spit out the words through a cringing face that only hinted at the pain he must have been feeling. It was both moving and slightly uncomfortable to watch, but the crowd did their best to pay back Paddy's perseverance by singing along and, for lack of a better term, going off.

The band marched on, playing songs such as "Doublewhiskeycokenoice," "Who Didn't Kill Bambi," "Let Them Eat Thomas Paine," "O.K.F.M.D.O.A.," "Noble Stabbings!!," "Fuzzy Pink Hand-Cuffs," and "Folk Song" before they decided to cut things a bit short. They closed with "D4 = Putting the 'F' Back in 'Art'," and you could tell Paddy was really giving everything he had left as his voice strained and his face wore an expression of pure agony. At the end of the song he immediately ran off the stage, and it was soon after announced that Dillinger Four would not be playing a later show they had originally been scheduled to do.

I don't think I've ever seen such a selfless display at a show before, as Paddy ignored his own personal comfort to give the kids in Philly a performance to remember. As I was leaving, I couldn't help but think that what Dan Yemin had said earlier in the night was true. When giving the obligatory "up next" statement he described Dillinger Four as "The best punk band in the U.S.," a moniker that is not only accurate, but well earned.

Still one of the best shows I've ever been to

Sure, "CVA" was generic, and has been done better before, but "Paradise" is a great record, with a great deal of variety, moreso than Fucked Up.
__________________________________________________

What the fuck? Do you have ears? Paradise is painfully generic. Not only in music but in lyrics. Too many songs are devoted to the 2004 election which prevents Paradise from being anything but a 2005 CD. Put that in your CD player in 10 years and it wont even hit close to the same key. CVA on the other hand is mother fucking timeless. Generic, maybe. But the song topics and approach are a relatively fresh and interesting. I'll take CVA over Paradise any day of the week. Anyone that likes Paradise just wants some melody in their music. CVA=genius.

To clear up what some dude said about how can Dan be against organized religion and play at a church.

Well maybe if you took two seconds to look at the Paint it Black website, which to tell ya the truth, before i trash someone, i usually look at what they say first

you will find this:

"The First Unitarian Church has spent a great deal of time and energy making sure that outlets for all ages shows and would remain in Philadelphia. More importantly, the church provides a great deal of social and educational programs (such as bringing in Noam Chomsky or Jello Biafra to speak). If you have time, please email them a note of thanks and appreciation. Although we may have some ambivalence about listing an organized religious institution amongst our favored causes, the aforementioned activites, as well as their support of same-sex unions and non-heirarchical spiritual endeavors makes them a favorite."

Dude. That is the smartest move you will ever make. Poison Idea RULE. Get "Feel the Darkness" ASAP and their older stuff like "Pick your King" and "Kings of Punk". That stuff is awesome and absolutely mandatory.

Anyone who thinks D4 are the 9th best band on Fat's opinion is not valid. I love a lot of bands on Fat, but none can compete with Dillinger Four. Against me! sang about it, but D4 make it real; You go to their show and everyone is dancing like no one is watching, with one fist in the air.

I was at this show and it was fucking amazing. And for the dude who said D4 is the 9th best band on Fat, you didn't get the memo. D4 sticks to their guns throughout their whole history and Im proud they came to Philly to represent true DIY ethics. Paint it black wasnt too bad either...but there always good.

I noticed Dan Yemin uses hyperbole a lot (I hope it's hyperbole, at least). I'm sure he really does understand the greatness of the Bouncing Souls.

Anyway, am I the only one who thinks CVA was (much) better than Paradise?

Fuzzy (January 11, 2006)

Actutally dude, I think the last time I saw an interview with Dan Yemin he said specifically that the Bouncing Souls were the best and biggest punk band around right now.

I could be wrong. I'll ask him when I'm INTERVIEWING LIFETIME.

Anonymous (January 11, 2006)

I disagree, as the first full CD after his departure is their best IMO.

Cos (January 11, 2006)

The Bouncing Souls hit their peak with Hopeless Romantic. Since then, they've become a stream-lined rock entity, not the kind of band that could write a 30 second BMX song, a song about eating on tour, and then break your heart with a soulful love song. Now all they do is songs about how much they love music and an occasional cliche girl song.

I know its been said, but they lost something huge when Shal left. They haven't been the same since.

dazed (January 11, 2006)

This sounds like a cool show.

I happen to like Paint it Black and Fucked Up in about equal quantities, Paint it Black generally plays it faster but Fucked Up makes up for that with the '77ish melodies. I'd love to see both bands on a show together.

The best Poison Idea album is "Kings Of Punk". Everything before it is shorter & thrashier and afterwards they got heavier (sep. the drumming) but "Kings of Punk" is super raw and still melodic. Plus the "fuck you" at the beginning of "Made to be Broken" is the best "fuck you" I've ever heard in a song.

I wanna see a real oi band play sometime, I bet it rules.

I don't really see any correlation between playing a rock show in the basement of a church and the actual entity that is organized religion. If a church is the best damn venue in Philly then might as well play it.

Speaking of jagged-toothed homeless men who live outside the First Unitarian...

there's this guy who is always there asking for money and he seems so gone every time. When he comes up to me I ask him if he wants to hear a joke and then tell him a 5 minute story with no punchline. The thing is, he acts like he's never heard it before, when it's the same every time.

So, one time I saw Q and Not U one night and Death From Above 1979 the next night and told him the joke both nights. He must not pay attention to my jokes.

Regardless I never give him money, so I guess he doesn't have a reason to listen.

Don't get me wrong, Fucked Up was good and all live, but they're hardly as solid as Paint it Black. Sure, "CVA" was generic, and has been done better before, but "Paradise" is a great record, with a great deal of variety, moreso than Fucked Up.

And while Dan Yemin was probably a big selling point of the band initially, "Paradise" has definitely proven that their a band who can definitely stand on their own.

Anonymous (January 10, 2006)

I hear a huge British influence in Fucked Up... "Police"? It's not "Oi," but the bootboy influence is there, and I don't hear the Poison Idea in them, but hey...

On another subject, best Poison Idea record?

For me, "Pick Your King"- they sound like a bunch of kids speeding up Discharge songs. Those vocals are crazy, too.

Your positive comment (!) sounded so forced that I loved it. I really have to ask, though, where do you hear the Sham 69 influence? I read that and listened to "Epics in Minutes" today while in the shower and all I could think was Poison Idea.

To "true fans of the genre" (assuming you're talking hardcore punk), Paint It Black are nothing that daring or original. They are a good band. I can see them being awesome live... But there have been tons of bands that have brought back old school, intense hardcore and done it (in my opinion) better. There are lots of bands that sound like Paint It Black- few that sound like Fucked Up. They both write good songs, though!

-Will

Big_Guy (January 10, 2006)

I agree that "I like them because Yemin is in the band" is a bad reason to like a band, but true fans of the genre will see right through that fact and like them because they truly are a great band.

that's why I love them at least.

I don't know about Fucked Up writing better songs though. I know who's songs I like better anyway, and that's all that really matters, right?

etwiels88 (January 10, 2006)

And there's a stupid argument about said band.

Anonymous (January 10, 2006)

No, Fucked Up actually write better songs. It's just too bad they don't have a scene icon like Dan Yemin in them, or your opinion would be a little more fair.

Half the people who like Paint It Black just say they do because "it's the guy from Lifetime and Kid Dynamite!"

Now there's a stupid reason to like a band.

-Will

Big_Guy (January 10, 2006)

what's the argument here?

PIB is way better than Fucked Up no matter how "generic" they are.

"Fucked Up is a great band because they cant play their instruments and write less than memorable old school hardcore songs."

horible reason to like a band

I would listen to the entire PIB discography before I could listen to 3 Fucked Up songs. Sounds way way too similar to make me want to listen. Stage show was good though.

I'm supposed to be getting that NOTA / Brother Inferior spilt in the mail (I think it's lost on campus somewhere) someday; I know it's not their best work, but it's all I have so far. I thought NA (I just got the disco.) was influential because they mixed Oi style with heavy American hardcore...amazing how little those bands are mentioned. Hardcore starts and ends with Black Flag, Minor Threat, Circle Jerks, etc etc. The Midwest gets burned again.

If you know anything about Unitarianism then you know that it has little to do with "organized" religion, other than perhaps providing an alternative to it.

Gladimnotemo,

Few people understand the fine art of hardcore. Paint It Black is much more generic than Fucked Up... Barely anyone mixes Sham 69 singalong punk with pure American hardcore, and when they do, they usually suck. Fucked Up succeed!

Oh yeah, have you heart NOTA? I think they were from Oklahoma... Old oi-inspired hardcore, very good. Up there in the Negative Approach "thug hardcore that doesn't suck" category.

I was right near the front on the left side of the stage. I had a perfect view of Paddy. Dude was dying, I felt so bad. I couldn't believe that he was still able to play reasonably well.

perk900 (January 10, 2006)

it is a pretty accurate account of the show...

But unless you were right in the front watching i don't think that you were able to watch Paddy play through the pain...

he looked like death for most of the set, but still was able to rock... although i'm still pissed he didn't suck it up for the after-party...

As for the First Unitarian Church it is probably the best place to see a Show in Philly... It may be a bit weird that so many punk bands play in the basement of a church but if you read the Church's mission statement it might make more sense...

"We are an intentionally diverse religious community inspired by our historic urban ministry. We seek to lead meaningful lives, to love one another without prejudice, and to build a just and sustainable world."

The First Unitarian Church has nothing to do with the shows at all. The merely provide a large enough hall with the consistency that r5 productions needs to do as many shows as they have. The Church has been incredibly supportive of r5 and Philadelphia punk rock over the last 8-10 years, and I'm sure Yemin knows and respects that.

hard skin proved to be everything i hoped for. they are british. they are oi. i wouldn't really call them a joke or fake. it's just really funny. kinda like the UKs version of the Yuppie Pricks i guess. really catchy songs and great stage banter

Maybe "fake" isn't the right word, but I'd still say joke definitely is. It's totally tongue in cheek and ridiculous.
