Welcome to the official online home of underground rock from Eugene, Oregon circa 1980-1995. Relive the time you spent in someone's damp, smelly basement while you were in college!
Please email to Panicon13th@sbcglobal.net if you'd like a post removed because you don't want anyone to know about or ever hear your old band again.

This one is so overdue that I'm going to pretend I thought I'd already posted it. This was the final release for Billy Jack and the only one featuring this lineup. Billy Jack continued to revolve personnel and eventually accomplished a full Wall of Voodoo in that the last version of the band featured zero original members! I love this band and Shotgun - I Love You and Chet's Lament may be Bruno's greatest love songs.

I've been sitting on this one for a long time, sorry Scott! I did such a bad job with track increments on this one you'd have to go all the way back to my Three Pigs post to find a worse job. I never saw Birdie Jo, may have been just after my Eugene days. Hopefully a bandmember wants to chime in with some colorful stories, I don't have any!
Mimi was the very first Eugene musician I ever met way back in 1983 when she worked at Earth River Records. I still miss that place. Seemed appropriate to post something Mimi played on for the blog's 100th post, a milestone! Thanks to Mimi and Marty for allowing this post!
Skeleton Closet (1995)

5. Nuclear Attack

11. Fucked Up
Even later than usual, here is the third volume of our monthly series that began in July of 2015. Given the current state of things a picture of the torn down animal house seemed appropriate, not sure who originally took the picture. As usual, if you want your band off this comp, just email and your track will be promptly removed.

Ken Snead, who passed away in 2012, came up in a recent Facebook thread and I realized I'd never posted this compilation cd of his bands. Apparently this cd was given out at his memorial service. I don't have band names or track listings so any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Eagle Park Slim played around Eugene for decades, a community figure you just expected to always be there. I found out earlier today that he has passed away. This is the only release I have by Slim, kindly supplied by Erich Boekelheide a few years back. I believe this is the first Eugene release although I imagine Eagle Park Slim had a number of prior releases as well. RIP Eagle Park Slim, please donate to the Go Fund Me link to help pay for services if you can.
