"PAT FEAR ROCKS!!" That's what it said on the side of his Flying V. And White Flag mastermind and daredevil punk rock prankster Bill "Pat Fear" Bartell is no longer with us - died in his sleep last Monday, following years of health problems. I knew Bill, but not well - we were both ex-fLiPSiDers, for one. So, of course, I had to at least play four White Flag hits and read a poem Tony of The Adolescents composed, memorializing the friend he knew well.

Among other highlights:
  • Scooter gets a bigger vocabulary!
  • We play more of your requests!
  • Classics from THE LOOTERS (aka that Sex Pistols/Clash band from Ladies And Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains), THE CRAMPS, BLACK FLAG, and WIRE!
  • New noise from OFF!, THE STRYPES, BULLET PROOF HEARTS, and more!
It's all NAPALMTASTIC! Now click and play!

Now, here's the playlist:

  1. Thanks! I grew up with Bill who still lived up the hill from my mother when he passed away. Bill was a character: he burned Blue Oyster Cult's logo into the high school lawn with bleach; he painted animals on the English teachers' lounge and labeled it a zoo. Glad someone here in Austin appreciates Bill.
