Flipside Vinyl Fanzine 2 … I’ m Shakin’ All Over

Hey original John Crawford Artwork on the back cover. Revolutionary Fetus says

“Support Flipside Vinyl Fanzine # 2 or face a bleak and unlivable future.”

Again, from the original Flipside “CATALOG.” As written at that place and time in history by yours truly. I don’t know why I excluded Flipside Vinyl Fanzine Number One, maybe at the time we ran out of them for sale. Yet I will include it later in my gathering of Intellectual Property … my journey to bring together what was lost on the internet wasteland. (If only symbolically)

A friendly gesture to remember what seems vague in my senior years. Thank you for indulging my fiery drive. As Emma Jung, wife of Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist Carl Jung, said and I paraphrase, “Sometimes a dame has got to do something for herself that no one else fucking understands, who cares cause she knows why she is doing it… for her own soul.” There now that feels better. I am just in the gathering phase. I call it Phase A.

Included below is some remarkable history about the process of creating this Vinyl Fanzine. Many hands in the cookie Jar. Heartfelt Thanks!!

As many of the upcoming bands, Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine collaborated with Bill Bartell of Gasatanka Records and Chaz of Casbah Recording Studio. I have included a bit of history and information below.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casbah_Recording_Studio

“Chaz”, as he was known to most, was guitarist for Eddie and the Subtitles, a local punk band that was influential on younger Fullerton punks as the Adolescents and Social Distortion, both of which recorded their early demos and singles at Casbah and continued recording albums there as their popularity grew. “I don’t think they shared musical tastes” stated Michael Hutchinson, producer for Billy Idol and Berlin, observing “I don’t know how excited Chaz was about Berlin – he was more excited about punk stuff.” Yet there was an excitement that came from the blending of the two distinct cultures: one typified by Chaz and his cronies’ slacker ethos, the other by St. James and his commercial sensibilities and keen awareness of musical trends. After the success of Stacey Q’s Better Than Heaven, St. James deferred ownership of The Casbah to Ramirez. https://web.archive.org/web/20101020144212/http://www.casbahrecording.com/history.html

Flipside Record One

We at Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine had loads of fun having too many projects while supporting a scene. It was way over my head but being right in the middle I did what I did to help it to flow forward. Words below from the Flipside CATALOG.  

Flipside Recordz

Detox “Start Finish” LP

Our first attempt to put out a full-out album, A real under-ground sound to this album, with a band that has been around the LA scene for quite some time!! Twelve punker tunes sung by good old Dan Forklift. Bass played by Steve (Human of the Vandals,) Tony Malone plays guitar (who featured in the movie “Girls just want to have fun,” he played the guy with green hair playing guitar on a table at some party, remember?) and now ex member Lantz Krantz (Boyfriend of Boom Boom of the Screaming Sirens) on drums. Square dance to “No Reggae in Russia” and slam to “Shoot the Kid,” something for everyone. Oh, Oh , Oh…

No Reggae In Russia

Henderson St

Child For One

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…   

Flipside Video Nine: When Can I Sleep In Peace?

Shoot this is messed up because the original Flipside Video Nine produced at Flipside was in sink and had a nice continuity. Yet one can get a feel for it and the message from the bands listed. You can play the game, “I spy, that song and that band member.” So, the original CATALOG is a good outline of what is going on. Thanks to the characters who posted these videos. I asked them to write up a little story about their journey with these tapes but no reply. Oh well, this is just my little project of gather our Flipside Products tighter in a place of love, peachy peace and prosperity. I mean Intellectual Property is a good thing. If only a place where my grand children can see what their grandma was up to. Like me maybe eyeballing them in the future at the beginning of this video. Had to laugh. I like that. I think the message comes through. The punk rock patina shows though.


When Can I Sleep In Peace is one of our hottest videos yet, A action video waking up the viewer with the realities of a troubled world.

All the touring bands of this decade.

The video opens with the band MDC, with their song “Revolution In Rock.” And mixed through the video are three other songs of theirs “Corp. Death Burger,” “Blue by Day” and “Church and State.”

Then on to my fave band on this video the DICKS with three songs, “Sidewalk Begging,” “Hate the Police” and “No War.”

PREDITION from the out back make a slice in this video with the song “Diseases.” He don’t want it.

BGK play and sing an animal rights song call what else “Vivisection,” and a song called “Arms Race.”

And on to the big one, CONFLICT with two songs, “Which Ever You Want It” and “From Protest to Resistance.”

Oh boy, did we score when we got these songs from The Dead Kennedys. “Moral Majority” and “Chemical Warfare.”

And FINAL CONFLICT contributes one song call “Political Glory.”

And who could forget the SUBHUMANS with “Cradle To Grave.”

Then on to REAGAN YOUTH with “It’s A Beautiful Day.”

And our buddies from out back bring us a number called “Suppy Demise.”

Ending this video is the well-known band SCREAM with the very heart-warming song called “Solidarity.”

Flipside Video Eight

Can’t believe these tapes are holding up as good as they did. A nice cameo of Al’s voice and Me on the beginning of this Video. For those who don’t know Al and I ran Los Flipside Fanzine together during 1979 to 1989. Along with many Flipside players. Pete Landswick, Gus Hudson especially who helped a great deal with the production of these original 11 Videos. Including Hard Dogs Night.


Keith Morris By Hudley From Punk Singers Gone Mad a Flopside Bubble Gum Comic.

Straight from the original Flipside CATALOG.

This video has nine good bands on it. Sooooo, we start out with those wild and crazy guys Doggy Style, with their infamous “Donut Shop Rock” which is from Flipside’s first conceptual video. Then we have live at Balboa Theater “Side By Side,” and “Denial.” All you guys will be happy to learn what Doggy Style really means, oh baby! Just ask the Boyz about the Greek Girl.

Then one of our fave bands with the man of Rock & Roll himself Don Wrap singing “All Fucked Up “and “Red Light Green Light.” At the beautiful Safari Sam’s and the smelly O Limp Dick. I miss this band, I love ‘em so will you, Ya I’m talking ‘bout Plain Wrap

And on to one of the longest living punk rock bands, the Circle Jerks with “Making The Bomb” at the Cornhusker and “Killing For Jesus” at the O limp Dick. Something to cherish.

Aggression…. with mini Interview. Then “Salty Leather” and “Money Machine.”

On to a hot Canadian band called the Asexuals, this band has SOOO much energy, they’ll burn your eyes out. You’ll want to dance all night long! Their premiere performance “Contra Rebel and “Circus” at Fenders.

Marginal Man the hottest band, DC Band too, since the Buzzcocks perform “Marginal Man,” “Tell Me” and “Turn The Table.” Lots of fun including all recorded at Steve’s (from Ink Disease Fanzine’s basement.) Have fun and sing along with ‘em as they sing “Waffle House.”

The Detonators perform two songs at the O limp Dick, “I’ve Got A Reason” and “Do You Understand.” Ready and go…

If you’ve heard about ‘em you just got to see them live at this show at a small 12XU show in Pomona. An honest interview included that just might surprise you, it did me! And the band’s name is Agnostic Front.

The End.

Flipside Video Seven

Someone told me once that Chuck Dukowski from SST Records and I from Flipside Fanzine were the only ones that answered our mail. That made me feel good. It mattered … still does.


What I like so much about my WordPress site The Seminary Of Praying Mantis is that it is part of a global community. Every day I can see who is reading my posts from all over the world. It thrills me as much as it did back in the 1980s. We had bulk mail. We distributed Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine all over the world. And even though it may have taken two to three months for another country to get their Flipside Fanzines, I always got letters and corresponded with punks all over the world, kind of like now but maybe not as intimate. It was cool hiding in my Flipside cave and corresponding like that.

Flipside Video Six “The Right To Be Wild, The Right To Be Free”

A lonely thing without a real or true story or without original source.

This tape starts out right to the point. As I have said I am finding these online because a lot of our Flipside material is all over the fucking place. I am pulling it in or trying to collect it a bit. Giving our Intellectual Property a story of context and authentic experience. We at Flipside Fanzine did this all and it was fun but hard work…. More than copying a few video tapes or two… we went to the shows, taped the shows and hung out with the often wild and free punk players. Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine documenting a scene. A little more than being archived somewhere or someplace.


The greatest punk band around opens this video. We bring you D.O.A. with three of their greatest “Fucked Up Ronnie,” “Enemy,” “Burn It Down.” The O limp dick is the concert hall, watch out they might just burn a whole in your boob tube.

Now we’re proud to bring an acid trip… on us, take it with Sonic Youth. “Kill Your Idols,” and “We Want Out.” Maybe right out in your living room?? Who knows?? All filmed at the Mojave Desert.

And now at the Flashdance brings us Target Of Demand, live with two songs “Airhead” and “No.”

Oh where, oh where did my Love Canal roam, or where oh where can they be? Well, they were caught here live at Cornhuskers in Azusa, and boy were they loads of fun, a real ball of laughs. “Punk Is OUR Funk Is In,” is the song. Boo Hoo, I miss these guys boo hoo. Mini-Interview. (Al And Pete)

“Hey Bob What’s Up,” is the famous son from Pillsbury Hardcore. Live at the Sun Valley Sportsman’s Hall. Don’t you want to know what’s up??

The Stardust  brings us a dream live from the band Condemned To Death, with “Night of The Succubus,” It will suck the Life Force from you. So, remember to eat lots of garlic.

We love Wattie Boy oh yes, we do, we love you Wattie Boy and we’ll be true, when you are away, we’ll be blue, oh Wattie Boy we love you. “Alternatives” at the O limp dick. Mini interview back stage fun. (Al and Hudley)

The Flashdance again with Toxic Reasons “Do You Feel” and “No way Out.’ An overlooked band so give them a viewing, serious like.

More professional punks like the Stretch Marks are needed. They play “What Do you See” and “Another Tragedy” from Perkins.

The macho side of punk brings us Kraut with their very well-known hit, “Twisted.” At the O limp Dick.

Oh, Oh, Oh… Detox’s “Placydyl Polka” oh, oh, oh…. At the O limp dick… oh, oh, oh.

Two different clubs bring you the same band, yes, the wondrous and OCingest band called D.I. play “No War” and “Guns.” What do all these men have in common? Do you give up? Dicks!

That’s ALL FOLKS … da, da, da, daa…. Ptttttttt.

Flipside Video Five “Remember It For What It Was.”

Roxanne’s, O Limp dick or O limp dick or O Limp Dick… and the Lhasa Club were three of the punk clubs where we recorded video live. I know you know I am speaking about the Olympic Auditorium above. A pet name that I guess was mine to give. This tape is a great blend of bands and personalities. Music was youthful and diversified by many themes and styles. People who became big wigs and others who faded away. Yet here it is as it was. Enjoy.

Below from original Flipside CATALOG, Contextually sound… with a side kick of really? Bands ended but as we all know reformed again… and are even coming out with new records now. What a treat. Not everything fades to black. Enjoy mini interviews with bands, skating shorts and bad Mr. Baboon Dooley.

Opens with the infamous cartoonist and rock critique John Crawford …. Can you hear our VW Square back? Also, a zombie HUD… we had fun… at our Second Flipside House…. In Whittier CA. (Year 1984 of FLipside Radio KFJC hosted by Hudley Flipside)

This video opens with a live gig at Roxanne’s in Arcadia with, Decry. They sing their “Falling” and “Warlords.” See Farel at his best. Short interview with Al Flipside. RIP Decry.

New York’s Heart Attack play live, and boy are they in a frenzy! One great band live energy, energy, energy!! “Man’s World” and “Brain Washed Heroes” and the tunes you’ll hear by these guys all recorded at the O Limp Dick. These guys sure have good hearts.

Drugs and fun with Redd Kross!! They have been around cause they play “We Are The Ones” and old Avenger’s song. And they do it in the way only they can. Live at Lhasa Club in Hollyweird.

And who could miss the U.K. SUBS perform “Stranglehold” and “Crash Course” and “You Give Me Disease.” Older but wiser, older but younger, the fun never ends or the truth! Catch it.

Basic Math at Roxanne’s

More peace punk with Conflict, “Back To Palace.”

Iconoclast Van Nuys.

The O Limp dick again brings us TSOL, with a few of my faves. “American Zone,” “In Time,” and “Suppose They Gave A War.” Which is featured on the Flipside Comp. #one. Some real feelings here.

Another night out at Roxanne’s with the good old Justice League and you can see a young band show their stuff, with two songs, “Something Else,” and “We Always Laugh.”

For all you hard/core fans we have Bad Religion. See them older and matured playing hits such as “New Leaf” and “Bad Religion.”

Vagina Dentata open next with “Work Till Your Dead.” Gerber and Pat Smear, we know Hollywooders shows. The new style wild baby wild.

Pariah a band that shows their lights every once in a while. Play “Striking Back”, Posh Boy could have done good with these boys if he would have played a fair game from the start!! Live at O Limp Dick.

We end this video with the SUBHUMANS cause we want to leave you with a questioning mind. Bye Bye. The song is “Black And White.”

Flipside Video Number Four

The fact that GBH is still around playing, and a solid punk band says it all. The proof is in the pudding! Their story is a great story. Here is a bit of their history and I am happy that we grasped it.

Shyane wearing Mama’s old punk leather jacket originally from X-8, she added the art and studs later … )

Brit Boys Attacked By Brats

(Words From Original Flipside CATALOG)

Now if you go up to someone and ask them if they like GBH be careful to some people it’s like saying “fuck you,” to them. Or if you tell people you like them, they call you a sexist. But after seeing the video I think that you’ll understand that the members of GBH, Jock- guitar, Wilf- Drums, Ross- Bass and good old Colin the singer are guys to be loved and friendly with. The media can really screw things up sometimes. I say this video is one of my faves. I will always love Charged GBH– Hudley

This tape is all GBH, live footage and close personal interviews with the band. We also include fan interviews outside Perkins Palace. All footage is from mostly their first tours. Including San Diego and Las Vegas. Lots of fun for us and the band. I hope for you also. Included are: Big Women, Alcohol, Needles and Pins, Hellhole, Drugs Party In 526, City Baby’s Revenge, Give Me Fire, Generals, Gun and Guitar, Forbidden Zone, Las Vegas Babies and the infamous Wild Thing.

Flipside Video Three for your Favorite Bro or Sis…

The line up on this one is spot on with the original Catalog line up. Even the Buddha Man blesses you with his tongue on this one. I will give you a free Ten-Year Anniversary Issue # 54 if you know who he really is. Yet only a hand full of people know.

Flipside Video Three.

Oh ya, now we open with the rad boys from Agent Orange. Live from Music Machine they play “Bloodstains” and “Shakin All Over.” Of course, this whole sequence was filmed with Al’s fisheye lens, lots of fun! And then on to an interview with the boyz. Watch Mike (singer) skate and play guitar at the same time.

Perkins Palace is the happening place with the Big Boys cause they move and groove with a couple of their good songs, “Why Can’t You See “and “History.”

Some older footage with American Hardcore make this tape a wonder, because you can see Drew Burnstein as a straight edge punk, before he went onto being a Crass punk and before he became a glitter Punk playing songs like “Running Backwards” and “Trash Your Love.” Taped at the Roller Works in Van Nuys.

Now you can’t miss M.I.A. play a couple of their best tunes. “Murder in A Foreign Place” and “Boredom is The Reason.” You can catch them at their peak at Perkins Palace. A Must!!!

Subterfuge, subterfuge, subterfuge, and not enough subterfuge. Though these guys have called the quits, you can catch them at their peak. Also, at Roxanne’s Bar with the son “Macho Man.” Subterfuge RIP

The infamous Ichabod’s in Fullerton brings us the Confederate. And they play one sparked up production for the song “American Farmboy.”

Our hero is on this video, the Darby Crash band performing an old Germs song “Ritchie Dagger” Live at the dead Starwood.

Ironically, Suicidal Tendencies follow the above performance with “I See Your Mommy” and “Suicidal Failure.” All at Perkins Palace.

Some old footage here too with the Killroy boyz at the good old Cathay De Grande. “Degeneration” is the song and a mini-interview also at Pop Burger in Woodland Hills.

And on to fun, fun, fun with the Toy Dolls preforming “Barry Manilow.”

And some Duty Dora party fun with the old wild and crazy fuckheads Mad Parade. They play “Animals Riot and “Tearing Down The Wall.” Fun Boyz.

No fu here with Eddie And The Subtitles cause they are talking about drugs. Live at Ichabod’s.

The peace punks get their say here wit two songs from Iconoclast, “Domination or Destruction” and “Battlefields.” Ya boyz tell us what you know about battlefields, I wanna know about peace.

The weird and bizarre freaky band that everyone used to ask about No Trend. And they sing about “Teen Love” live at the Cathay. The strobe lights knock you out, ya man, like a crazy square root.
