my favorite is glamour girl + pigface chant.

seeing/opening for them (acually they are placing first, so maybe they are opening for ME) CANT BLOODY WAIT. ive never seen the dudes and ive been a fan for years, which is a damn shame since they live and play shows an hour away on a regular basis.

i heard them on the radio, playing with a band called yuma nora. now THAT was a favorite smegma moment. i recorded it with my tape deck, the tape has long succummed to the depths of perpetual tape degradation but i ripped it to mp3. its a SHITTY rip, buzzy like hell and not very loud but if you can get passed that... well, it rocks my socks.

ill post it here if anyone is interested?

I saw them this past summer, and it was one of the most inspiring things I have seen in the past few years, seriously.

Pigs for Lepers

My favorites. Of course, these are sort of hard to come across, I'd look online for downloads. Rumblings would probably be the easiest to find.

i saw them at Subcurrent.. I think I expected too much from them as I was very excited about seeing them... however they played last and after the onslaught of noise that day, they were a tad underwhelming... still cool tho... I dig the CD they did w/ Wolf Eyes...

"Nate & I once got so blasted from Portland cloud that we projected that Smegma has always existed, ever since the beginning of time. Someone will always carry it on... might be this dude in Ypsi who has no face. Really. No nose, barely a mouth, always has a broken arm or something.. smells like shit. Dude is totally in Smegma. Fucking life rules." -- John Olson.

That live radio performance was released by a label called Olwyn Plant on a limited CDR called "Follow Us Into the Forest," officially under the name Yuma Nora. Rick and Jackie for Smegma were guesting, and their influence on the performance is definitely felt. (For other Yuma Nora stuff, I highly recommend their "Jewels in the Snakepit" CD from 2005 on Not Not Fun.)

Smegma has been a favorite of mine ever since I heard their "Mutant Baby"/"Outro" contribution to the landmark compilation LP "Portland Punk - Live at Earth, 10-29-79" of Greg Sage's (The Wipers) Trap label, which is historic for being the first punk comp LP to feature all bands from one geographic area, all recorded on the same night (it didn't happen again until a bunch of Austin bands recorded "Bands on the Block" in 1985). Smegma was the token "weird band" on the comp, but it fit in nicely because "Mutant Baby" sorta had the same rhythm as the Ramones' "Loudmouth."

I went to the 25th anniversary party for that record. It happened at Sabala's in Portland, so the place was packed with old punks who I'd figure to not like Smegma too much. But they did play last, and most in the audience seemed totally floored. It was clear that they were the best band of the night.

A documentary of the original 10-29-79 performance was screened between bands, and I got to see an old friend of mine singing and playing in the band on that historic night. A fellow named "Donkey Flybye" left the band about 16 years ago and moved nearby in Sacramento and eventually got involved at KDVS, where he was even the acting program director for a time. He scheduled a 18-hour noise block on Fridays which was very controversial and led WFMU to take us off the list of freeform stations for a while. He was hated by many for that. But he was a cool guy, full of amazing stories of Smegma's early days, LAFMS, and Portland.

A lot of people have come to know Smegma as synonymous with Portland experimental music, and really the only link to Portland's past for the literally dozens and dozens of experimental bands and artists who regularly play in the city. So, a lot of people are surprised to learn that Smegma started in Los Angeles, where they were affiliated with the L.A. Free Music Society. Hence, the first Smegma album is included in its entirety in the LAFMS 10-CD boxed-set that RRRecords put out some years ago. I heard recently that some other label recently reissued it. (Can anyone share details about that?)

"Nattering Naybobs of Negativity" is my fave Smegma album, probably. The "Disco Diarrhea" single is especially priceless, too.

"Rumblings" is okay, but I'm not terribly excited by much of the Meltzer mumblings. The best thing that's currently available by Smegma is a CD on Resipiscent Records called "Live 1991-1993." This was the era of Smegma that I first personally saw live, and I had expected that they would kinda suck because they had just begun to release their first actually boring records (a couple 7" EPs on Sympathy for the Record Industry were ill-advised). But they were great, and their greatness was captured well on this disc which has excellent live sound.

Another really cool thing is the "Dr. Octopuss" LP which includes Rick and Jackie of Smegma with Sixes, Loachfillet, and some other Bay Area noisefreaks.

no fucking way! thanks alot for telling me this.
i mentioned my desire to release this on my little label to amy of yuma nora right after i heard it when i was just starting up (guess i still am though right?) but i was kinda out of the loop and totally disconnected from the world for about a year so it never happened, glad to see someone else has picked it up and probaly did a better job than i could have done with it.

been meaning to get the LAFMS box set, RRR also has a sampler CD with some material from the set that i may get first. RRRecords still has both the box set and the single CD availabe at www.rrrecords.com.

ive seen that resipiscent disc too, been meaning to get it but its sorta expensive, or atleast to me... i hate paying more than 10 bucks for anything.

i might have that dr. octopuss lp, im not really sure. angie who is in dr. octopuss (also in caroliner, sharkiface and a bunch of other bay area crap) gave me a test pressing of some LP and it has zero information on it. all i know is she is on it and bran(...)pos is on it. i think its something similar, maybe with dr. octopuss on it but not that "dr. octopuss" lp? i dont know, those dudes have so many side projects.

when i was listening to the radio broadcast on kboo, they called it a smegma/yuma nora collab but whatev. still gotta get that, rick and jackie seem to be the most active in the music "scene" these days. i have some aquantinces in pdx who are pretty good friends with jackie.

another band you dudes should check out are the hellcows, they are similar and have a 7" w/ smegma and maybe some other stuff togather. my friends first show what the butthole surfers, smegma and the hellcows... i mean jesus christ, i cant think of anything better than that. i dont know if they are from portland or not, defiantly pacific northwest though and im pretty sure in oregon.

jackie was on the cover of wire a few months ago, meaning to pick up that issue but wire is defiantly hard to come by here in the states and expensive if you do. maybe you can order backissues from the site?

anyways, this is one of my favorite threads. easily the best in awhile.
