    I've been to over 3000 gigs. I've been crushed, cut, bashed, stomped on, head-butted, electrocuted, hit with all manner of objects both accidental and deliberate, fallen over, been pushed over, had my hair pulled out, broken a few bones, and even been carted off in an ambulance once. All of those things happened at completely different times at different shows. I could have saved a lot of trouble by just going to a Hanatarash gig and experienced all of it in one night. Imagine being chased around by an excavator whilst dodging sheets of glass being thrown at you, and then the building you're in gets demolished and falls down around you, but not before the molotov cocktails come out. Man, I thought my stories were good. I'm just a hopeless rookie compared to these guys.

      @@gleeart I saw a band once where the female drummer stood up on the stool, pulled her pants down and pissed all over the drum kit. It went on for quite a while too, the poor girl must have been busting, lol. Seen a couple of dudes whip it out and take a piss on stage, one of 'em was hung like a horse, I thought it was fake until he started pissing and waving it around.
      Also saw a front man shove his fingers down his throat and puked all over the audience. It was lime green - it looked like he'd been drinking glowsticks.
      The usual compliment of tits and bums of course. Probably the best known would be Zia McCabe from the Dandy Warhols, she played half the show topless. That was a really good show actually, they played really tight that night.
      Never seen anyone drop a turd. I can't say I'm disappointed about that though. That's one milestone I'm happy to miss.

      You seem pretty knowledgeable on the topic. I thought your profile pic kinda looked like someone who gave me a CD for a New Mexico noise project called Death Convention Singers years ago, and when I clicked your profile I thought it's gotta be because of the Pow Wow videos, but apparently not. You might dig the music of Raven Chacon, though; he's a Navajo dude who's done a lot of noise stuff out here, and many other things; Death Convention Singers was one of his affiliated projects. He actually won a Pulitzer Prize for his stuff, which is cool because a lot of it is very punk rock. There was a pretty cool noise scene in Abq. back around 2012 when I lived there; maybe there still is, I dunno.

    Thanks for posting this. As an old-timer & one of Baltimore's few "Hardcore" Punkers in the early-mid 80's I am surprised I have never heard of Hanatarash. After watching the video I understand why. I don't know the guys in the band, & haven't heard any of their recordings, but I am familiar with NYC/USA's music scene. In the mid-80's hardcore evolved (or devolved) into a number of specific supbgenres: hardcore, straight edge, thrash (aka speed metal or skate punk), & noise art to name a few. This music & the bands that created it were extremely difficult to uncover & follow.
    Since MTV was just getting started & mainstream radio was a slave to their advertisers, the new unsigned "alternative or punk" bands relied on: word of mouth (plus the distribution of cassette mix-tapes), college & university radio stations (They were self-funded, & had no adverts. This allowed them to play what they wanted, not what sold adverts. Most of them had a weekly, 1 to 3 hour, "Punk Rock Program." Those were taped on cassette, highly prized, & traded at live concerts. ), occasional live shows (the only music festival, forgetting the original Woodstock, was the US Festival & showcased big name rock & roll bands. Live/Band/Farm-Aid hadn't happened yet, much less Lollapalooza & the Vans Warped Tours.), and a very small "Import/punk" section in record stores. Some of us would write the label (SST, Alternative Tentacles, & Rough Trade in the UK) and asked for a catalog. We figured the other bands on that label might be similar to the one we knew & liked. We didn't know most labels were owned by a band member & only existed to put that band's music out. SST/Alternative Tentacles/Factory?Rough Trade were the exception not the rule. Thanks to the internet, & content creators like yourself, anyone can listen to any band they want to. Plus, the artists have a platform to promote their creations.
    Hanatarash is radically different from the Noise Art I subjected myself to in NYC. Those shows usually drew a crowd of 30-50 people that simply stood & watched the performance. Unlike the hardcore shows I attended, there was no stage diving, crowd surfing, or slam dancing. I got the sense the audience felt too sophisticated, or cool, to just cut loose & dance. They were certainly older than the punk rockers in Baltimore. We were mostly high school students. John Zorn, Golden Palominos, Skeleton Crew were a few shows I recall seeing. Flipper, Butthole Surfers, & Sonic Youth were the only bands I remember that tried blending the Punk rock attitude & "noise art" into their music. There were many bands who sang about destruction, or tried to incite the crowd into destructive behavior, in the punk scene. But these 2 guys didn't sing about it, they actually went out and did it. It's not surprising they couldn't book a venue, after they destroyed one.
    Hats off to you for finding these guys, listening to their 3 albums, & posting content on them !!! I think about what we listened to & did back in those days & I feel sorry for the teenagers of today that don't have an outlet for their discontent. I suggest we bring back those glory days of punk rock. If teens could go to a show & slam dance, they might not feel compelled to take an assault rifle to school on "Show & Tell" day.

      @@teklife Interesting response, brother. Mass shootings by 12-25 year old people are certainly on the rise. Since the guns have always been available, and bullying is nothing new either, I wonder what is causing the increase. Some blame the guns, others the bullies. I prefer to blame the parents of the children/young adults coupled with internet & social media. I've noticed some youngsters create a fantasy, utopic life online. When this gets exposed they feel their actual life has ended, when it is only a persona created for social media. I'd love to chat more about this issue, but this isn't the space to do so.
      I also wonder as do you, what these current teens will miss during their golden years, like you. Shocking & repulsive, who knows buddy. I guess that's up to each individual to determine. I doubt I'll be here to find out though. Thanks for the reply bro.

      Art is often times the act of pushing the limits just to see where the real line is. While that group is way past my personal line, it's objectively not "trash". Another goal of performance art is an experience for the audience that will never be repeated and never forgotten. The folks who showed up AFTER knowing what that band did certainly got all of that.

    I remember a comix-short I once read in renowned Heavy Metal Magazine, about a punk band whose quest for ever more death defying live acts had the singer eventually amputate both his arms and legs during a show. Considering the Japanese underground scene in the '80's as depicted in the vid, this doesn't actually seem as far fetched as that younger version of me initially thought.

Wendy Williams was wild but not in it to hurt anyone in the audience. Its ok to get a bit bruised up but no one wants to end up in the hospital. People don't understand the liability the promoter can face if something happens at a gig. I live in South East Asia and have been to plenty shows but most the kids are wild but in control. Its more about having fun than just brutality or violence or destroying the venue. That is the big difference over here as life is crazy enough on a daily basis.
