Flipside Video Ten

The last of the Flipside Videos from the 1980s. I will not do the Doggy Style “A Hard Dogs Night” because I had enough of them back in the day. That was a Gus and Al thing. Like the day Detox, ASF and Doggy Style were at our fourth Flipside house on the same day. My body and mind blew up and that is when I realized I was burning out big time, while Joy sat there with her tight mouth. ASF and Doggy Style were like oil and water and then Detox… well all around confusion. I wish I video taped that day with them. I am going to do our Flipside Records next from the Flipside CATALOG. Be more than a witness as little old Hudley continues her walk down memory lane in her vast pursuit of Intellectual Property is a good thing journey. Now is the time to fucking organize.


RIP Reed Mullin of COC… and Julie Lanfeld-Keskin of Sin 34


Ya, and life goes on TOO! And this here video has lots of bands to savor and enjoy! A colorful combination of bands from different parts of the scene.

RADWASTE the bandy band that drums and guitars their way int your viewing entertainment. Tribal sounding and unique this band plays “Radwaste Is Here” and “Rock and Roll part 1& 2” and a 100 Flowers song “All Sexed Up.”

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY blaring and loud they play “Technocracy” at the O limp Dick.

Then some Raszebrae.

“Young till I Die” at the Rollaway, in Placenta and “Strength” at Sun Valley Sportsman Hall and “Out of Touch” at the O limp Dick all show what 7 Seconds is made of.

Sin 34, “Do You Feel Safe” and “12 Hour Trip” filmed at the O limp Dick. Mini Interview.

Man, catch this, The Necros “Black Water,” “Guns,” and “Walking the Dog.”

I’m scared of these big women called FRIGHTWIG, the song “Frightwig” and “A Man’s Got to DO…” are a couple of ball breaking songs. A band that you just got to go see if you can LIVE…!

A bit of humor brings you to a band called Big Stick. A special song for all you drag racers called “Drag Racing,” the singer in this band wears a tube top, tube top because her boyfriend Eddie takes her to the drag strip (in the summer)!

And ending this video are the GRIM with two numbers “Live to Dies,” “Summer of 85” and “Sunday School.”

The End.

Sorry I am in the process of finding another YouTube copy of Flipside Video Ten…  if you have a copy and want to share, please do. It is my goal, of collecting and sharing my intellectual property as a need to preserve the history of Los Angeles Flipside at a place where the full story can be heard. Not just random videos dissected all over the place. I know collectors sell them for money and I know that people share them online… I am just asking that this video be presented in a way that I want … shit I did the hard work of gathering all this material, interviewing bands, going to endless shows, and cleaning up the equipment after shows. Part of a 3 to 4 Flipside Crew. Al, Gus, Hud (me) and sometimes Joy and Joe. A showcase with a story…

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
