Wattie Buchan heart attack

February 15, 2014

Legendary street punk outfit The Exploited – that pretty much provided the soundtrack for my 1980s – made it official on their Facebook page that their tour has been cancelled after vocalist Wattie Buchan suffered a heart attack on stage during a gig in Lisbon this Thursday.

As shown in the fan footage, the band had to cut their gig short and take the lead singer off stage, after which he was reportedly immediately taken to hospital. The band was one week into the seven-month Tour of Chaos with Hatebreed and Napalm Death. More via STV News.

Pic o/t Weekend (NOT!)

November 23, 2012

Well, this is spreading like a wildfire underground; It seems like rapper/anger management poster boy Chris Brown decided to sport the same sort of leather jacket I myself wore 24/7 as a teen. All the classic bands are there – The Exploited, D.R.I., Corrosion of Conformity‘s skull, one of my own personal faves Suicidal Tendencies etc. etc. Hardcore is hip baby! The kids are lapping it up like kittens at a bowl of cream! Makes me wonder when Sony is gonna gimme a call about Gå Vidare till Norrmalmstorg‘s EP Blästrad! having 24.000+ visitors so far on Bandcamp.

Well, the bands themselves have been reacting to this. Above shows Municipal Waste‘s reply on Twitter, but it seems the whole thing started with D.R.I.’s reply on their Facebook yesterday:

Thanks for the free publicity/advertising Chris brown,we guess, but you are still a fucking loser. Wonder how much he paid for the jacket….or if he even knows any of the bands!

And FYI I’m not kidding about GVtN’s statistics. How about giving the EP a spin here. Oh, and speaking of The Exploited, I played the shit out of this 7″ EP back in the 80s:
