Kind of loving this stuff myself lately in a midlife crisisy kind of way. When I came across this stuff first as a kid it seemed old and cartoony compared to what was going on in hardcore at the time, now I find it way more fun and listenable and alive.

I don't know if Honey Bane and Rudimentary Peni really fit the No Future/Streetpunk tag.

Maybe this UK Subs spinoff:

I kinda started a thread about this a long long time ago:

I've seen them twice in the last few years, one was good, the other a bit flat, but I think that was down to the crowd or lack of - the good gig was packed and the other half empty. I get the impression they're more popular overseas so would probably be alright.

love this section of Disorder’s Wikipedia page:

A series of events led to line-up changes: Robertson split up with girlfriend Beki Bondage (of Vice Squad) and began glue-sniffing. Virus got into trouble with the police over the ownership of his new drumkit, and Dean also left, later to be employed as a toilet cleaner in Taunton. Boobs (Chris Neill) replaced him on vocals and when Steve Robinson left, it was Taf (Phil Lovering, formerly of The X-Certs), who took over bass guitar duties.

I saw a video interview with Boobs recently, think he lives in Spain now, he was a junkie for many years and did some time in jail but got clean I think while he was inside and seems to be doing well now.

one month passes...

RIP Steve Robinson of Disorder, who had been living rough for a number of years in a public garden in Berlin. There's a nice article about him in Tagesspiegel this weekend which contains quotes from his daughter:

R.I.P. an den liebevollen Schreihalz

There's also an obituary in English on the Exberliner site:

Farewell to Steve, a Kiez legend

RIP Steve.

RIP!
