THE DESCENDANTS AT RIOT FEST 2014: The Descendants – Coolidge
track 5 off Liveage, copyright: Descendents and SST Records, 1987
THE DESCENDANTS – this is the one band that got away from me back in the day. I saw just about everybody else.
But these guys escaped me. Then I graduated college and thought Milo did too, ( no pun intended) and I move
to Chicago and Im sitting in my apartment bathtub… true story… and these guys come on the radio and hit
me with a new track !!!
I dry off as fast as I could and ran down 8 flights of stairs to Reckless Records. Yes I lived right above Reckless
Records, how cool is that? And I grabbed the last copy of EVERYTHING SUCKS.. and grabbed a 12 pack of beer
and rocked out. I cranked it up loud and I was literally in Heaven.
NOW….. FINALLY.. I get to see these guys at Riot Fest 2014 in Chicago.
