80’s Punk Rock

Before there was Schwarzenegger’s T2, there was a Punk Rock band from Portland Maine called T2. I recorded this rehearsal in 1982 in my mom’s garage. A real garage band.

The song is Bottle Patrol which was about the local bums that walk around collecting bottles and cans for the 5 cent deposit. Jim Lynch fronts this act, Tom Densmore plays bass, I’m on drums, and Chris Horne plays guitar. Chris later formed The Brood an all girl retro punk band. Great stuff.

Any podcast about punk rock has gotta have a poem by Frank’s Depression. This one is titled The Day The Sky Died.

We end the show with Eyes On Me by Ghost Walks. Recorded at the Outlook studio in Bethel Maine in 1989. Vocalist Beth Blood, and guitarist George Ripley kept this band together for 12 years. George was also in the legendary punk band, The Stains.
