There was never anything cool about these guys when they were around - do you even know who the fuck they are - probably not, unless you lived in S.F. in the Nineties & were into house parties, small shows at venues at warehouses, smoking speed, etc.

What the fuck happened to MY San Francisco?

The fucking bands that come out of here these days are so fucking ball-less / so fucking "not scary" / so fucking not original - of course there are a few exceptions - but for the most part, this town has become obsessed with sissy-haired white boys in women's jeans jumping about playing crappy pop-influenced BULLSHIT.

  • Fuck your fixed-gear bike.

  • Fuck your "weird beard".

  • Fuck your coffee shop.

  • Fuck your "skinny jeans".

  • Fuck your "fully sleeved overnight" trendy tattoos.

  • Fuck you fat "girlfriend" with the big sunglasses.

(The Icky Boyfriends were never appreciated when they were around - they still aren't - but they were fucking genius back in the days before the internet ruined everything that was cool. One of a kind band, really, but you won't get it)…

Watch the Icky Boyfriends' full-length movie

  2. You can add Portland to that list--we have a handful of cutting edge bands, but way too much of the "you're wearing everything in the world/multi culture clothes" in the world. Jesus fuck.

  3. Holy shit - someone else gets it! (Moik)...
