Brooke Smith

Brooke Smith head shot

Brooke Smith is an actress you have very likely seen before unless you haven’t watched any movies or television over the last 20 years. From The Silence Of The Lambs to Six Feet Under to Weeds to Grey’s Anatomy to dozens of other major movie and televison roles, Brooke is legit.


Before all of that kicked off, she was immersed in the mid/late 80′s NYHC scene. When her incredible photos popped up at http://streetbonersandtvcarnage.com/blog/old-new-york-hardcore-photos, we immediately got the link up on Double Cross, and decided we needed to track her down to get the scoop.

Brooke is working on a book of her photography, and we wanted to find out more about her experiences then and now. Forget any Hollywood BS as well…Brooke is super cool and recalls this stuff fondly. Big thanks to her, and hopefully more to come. -Gordo DCXX

How did you first come in contact with the NYHC scene and what was it that you found attractive? Were there any music scenes you had first hand experience with before hanging out on the LES with skinheads and hardcore dudes?

I grew up in Rockland County – a half an hour drive from the city. I was definitely an outsider in my hometown and found myself going downtown first because of the music, but also in search of people I could relate to. I felt (and still do feel) that I found a family on the LES.

When did photography come into the picture? Were you shooting from day one, or was it something that developed out of friendships, going to shows, etc.? What type of experience did you have? Were you just firing off photos, or were you going after something specific?

I wasn’t very good in school but I always liked taking photos. I did take photography in high school, but wasn’t patient enough to learn the technical side as much as I should have. I just started taking photos wherever I was. At shows, hanging out with friends…I was especially drawn to trying to capture the energy and experience of what it was like to see some of those amazing bands.

Who were your friends in the NYHC scene? What bands did you enjoy the most, who did you hang out with and where did you hang out?

I moved into the city the day after I (barely) graduated high school. I had a lot of friends downtown- Alexa Poli, (who was my roommate,) Olivia Larrain, (who confronted me at a Bad Brains show claiming that I’d hit her with my car in front of CBGB’s- something I continue to deny to this day, Olivia!), Fran and Madonna from Modern Clix, Roger and Vinnie from AF, Jimmy and Al and Petey and Joe Bruno from Murphy’s Law, Russell and Richie from Underdog, John and Harley from the Cro-Mags, HR and the Bad Brains, Carl Mosher, Frenchie, Raybees and Todd from Warzone, Jenny Lush, Cass, Jody, Mo, Gwen, English Mark, Neil and Amy from Nausea, Little Michelle, Natalie Jacobsen, Lazar, Little Chris, Tommy from Straight Ahead, Ray Cappo, BJ, Moon, Brendan, Cindi B, Sasha, Maggie, and many many more…

I worked at Trash & Vaudeville for a bit, and then did coat check with Alexa at The Ritz. My favorite bands were Bad Brains, Agnostic Front, Murphy’s Law, Cro-Mags, Cause For Alarm, Warzone, Youth Of Today, Straight Ahead, The Mob, Underdog, Ultraviolence…I’m sure I’m forgetting some.

Photobucket
Alexa and Jimmy, Photo: Brooke Smith

I hung out at Tompkins Square, CBGB’s, Great Gildersleeves (does anyone remember that place?!), A7, Rock Hotel, Ritz, Irving Plaza…

The scene wouldn’t have happened if there had been internet or cell phones.

What was the social climate (maybe compared to a few years later or even today) in NYC at the time, and how did the NYHC scene fit within that in your eyes? Did it feel like a unique subculture of people? What did you make of it all, compared to what other kids were doing?

My husband grew up in Russia and he really wishes he had been able to be here during the NYHC scene in the 80s. I think he’s right that it was the last time there was a true artistic movement where people were doing it just for the love of it. Not to get famous or rich. And it didn’t feel derivative at all. It was all ours. Like I said before, I really found my true family on the LES. I feel the same connection today to the people I knew then.

Minor Threat poll wrap up with Taylor Steele

Photobucket
4 Walls Falling frontman Taylor Steele is among the small few who can say they actually saw Minor Threat. So who better to wrap up our poll results and share some great memories? Thanks Taylor. -Gordo DCXX


To make a long story short, Minor Threat has had a bigger influence on me than probably any other band, and they have spoken to me on a deeper level than any band/musician. I know, you have heard that 100 times from 100 different people, so here is where the short story gets a little longer…

It was May of 1983 and I was going to see my favorite band play. Almost two years prior I had heard my first hardcore punk record, Black Flag’s Damaged. I was immediately drawn in by its aggression, anger, power and raw energy. It was something I had never experienced in music and I wanted even more. So any time I could pull the funds together I would head down to the local Indy record store and buy any random HC/Punk record or fanzine that I could find. In one of these fanzines I read about something called “straight edge.” Right off the bat it appealed to me. As a new “convert” to HC/Punk I was questioning every social norm. I was thinking for myself. So I thought, I don’t smoke, I drink, but don’t really like it, so why do any of that stuff. Obviously I decided that I would become straight edge.

Photobucket

Minor Threat were of course the “big wigs” of this movement so naturally I needed to hear them. The first thing I heard was their contribution to the Flex Your Head comp, then the two early seven inches. With each song they were becoming my favorite band. Then in April of ’83 Out Of Step came out. To say it blew me away is an understatement. Minor Threat had now become my favorite band. They spoke to me more than any band/musician ever had. It was way beyond music, it was a holistic experience for a 17 year old who was just beggining to discover who he was inside as well as a subculture that would change his life forever. Yep, Minor Threat was the band and the Out Of Step lp was the theme music for my existence.

So there I was in May of 1983 going to see my favorite band Minor Threat play. It was a first for me(getting to see my favorite band play) and would prove to be a last. It was a week night, I was in high school, and it did not start until 9pm, so just getting to go was a story in and of itself. This was only my second HC/Punk show, so I was literally a kid who was going to go to see my heroes in some small, grimy punk club.

Photobucket

I was in state of shock the entire evening, in awe of just being there. Minor Threat were great of course. Richmond had a small scene, but it felt like everyone, all 150 were there taking part in the fun. Kids with liberty spikes and combat boots, kids with crew cuts and chucks, skate punks, Brit punks, edge kids. That’s how it was, a different time I guess. It was mayhem and everything I had hoped for. It was so mind blowing that another great band, DOA, played after them and I don’t remember even seeing them. What a night.

It’s 2011 now. I’m not that 17 year old kid anymore, but Minor Threat and Out Of Step still play an important role in who I am, still am. It follows me. - Taylor Steele

Seven with Kevin

Photobucket

Kevin Seconds is a legend, plain and simple. I know Tim and I have wanted to get him on here in some capacity, but I didn’t want to do just another interview with the guy. Since Kevin is still actively doing music, always has something to say, and is floating around on the web, I decided it would be great to have him as a regular here on DCXX if he was into it. Sure enough, Kev said he was game and we’re psyched. So, I’m proud to announce what will hopefully be a weekly feature titled “Seven With Kevin” where we toss him seven quick random questions and see where it goes.


We’re gonna fight the narrow minds!!! -Gordo DCXX

1. What’s the last great song you heard?

Eddie & The Hot Rods’ “Do Anything You Wanna Do”, performed live by Ted Leo less than a week ago. Brilliant.

2. Reno in 2011: yay or nay?

Very much yay. I mean, not yay enough for me to move back there buy yay nonetheless.

3. Black Flag or Bad Brains?

Fuck. Pass.

Photobucket

4. How often do people write you asking you if you have any more copies of the YOT Can’t Close My Eyes EP?

Not all too often, actually. I wish they would. I found a stash of them a few months ago and I could use a few extra bucks. (Ed. Note: I see Kevin getting at least a dozen emails upon giving this answer.)

5. All time favorite US city to play?

I’m going with Sacramento, my hometown. I can pick other people’s cities. There are far too many to choose from.

6. Favorite thing about running your coffee shop, True Love, and will it re-open?

Favorite thing: being my own boss and helping make Sacramento a more interesting place to live in. If my wife Allyson and I re-open, it won’t be any time soon.

7. 7 Seconds song lyrics that still resonate the most with you?

Probably Regress, No Way.

Pretty rad new blog out of Toronto, Ontario called AD RATES, done by Rick Smith and Mike Fairley. It’s basically a collection of punk/hardcore band and label ads from the past. Some real classics here and the blog is relatively new, so I expect plenty more cool ads to pop up. Definitely one I’ll be bookmarking. -Tim DCXX

Joe D. Foster – Unity / Ignite

Photobucket
Joe Foster with Ignite, Photo: Traci McMahon

It was just a matter of time before we pulled Joe Foster in to the DCXX fold and it looks like we’ve finally gotten things rolling. Here’s part one of what’s sure to be a multiple entry interview with Orange County Hardcore veteran, Unity and Ignite guitarist, Joe D. Foster. -Tim DCXX

What were you into before punk? Who were your favorite bands, and what were the biggest things that had an impact on you as a kid?

Before punk??? I guess G.I. Joe toys, etc. I got into it so early there wasn’t much time for anything else. I used to tape Rodney on the Roq at night and listen to it the next day. That’s when I first heard Minor Threat and was hooked from then on.

My favorite favorite bands then definitely were Minor Threat and Seven Seconds, and later on Marginal Man and Rites Of Spring. Pat Longrie was really good friends with 7 Seconds and we would do a lot of shows with them. They were super posi guys and made amazing music. I even got to do background vocals on The Crew and there is also a picture of me and Kevin on the cover of The Crew. I’m the guy wearing a backwards white ball cap. I’m really proud of that because it was the best time of my life.

As far as what had an impact on me? Really just the pure positive energy of the music, even more so than the lyrics…

How did you discover punk and how do you remember it changing you? Who were the first bands you were exposed to and who had an immediate impression on you?

My punk discovery came from listening to Rodney on the Roq secret recordings late at night. It changed me for sure. I never heard anything as beautiful as Minor Threat and I have been hooked on the energy ever since.

The guys who made a real impression on me were Kev, Steve and Troy. They were just such fun posi guys and they made the best sing-a-long hardcore ever.

Photobucket

We all know about Unity, but what was there before Unity that you played in? When had you started playing guitar, and what was the big inspiration to do so?

Before Unity, I was in some pretty bad hardcore bands in high school, just really learning how to play but having fun. I can’t even remember the names. I also did some really good Christian bands in-between the hardcore stuff with the original singer from The Lifesavers…

One of my guitar inspirations was of course, Brian Baker. Also Rik Agnew for sure and then later Kenny Inouye from Marginal Man.

Ryan Hoffman on True Till Death

Photobucket
Curtis with Chain Of Strength at the Safari Club, DC, Summer 1989, Photo: Chris Yormick

Ronny Little sang for Rain On The Parade and also did a few zines (most notoriously, Fuck You) as well as the Bare Bones blog a few years back. Around 1997 he also did a quarter sized zine called Penalty Box that had some cool little pieces in it. One such piece was a little blurb he ran that came straight from Ryan Hoffman in February of 1997. I always thought this was cool, and Ronny was cool with us running it here. True Till Death indeed. -Gordo DCXX

True Till Death was one of the last things we put together for the first 7″. Frosty came up with this riff, and it was really basic. The whole thing with Chain Of Strength wasn’t to be this intricate hardcore band. It was just to play simple progressions that enable you to kind of go off and play with power and emotion. That was the whole idea behind Chain Of Strength.

I wrote most of the lyrics. I started the song, and Curt pretty much helped me finish it up. Basically, the whole thing was taken from an interview with Al from SSD. He was just talking how…’cause I was going through the same thing (Ed. Note: This isn’t a typo, I think Al was talking about being in a band Ryan could relate as he was going through the same thing with Justice League). I was in a band. He was in a band. I happened to go back to my roots, where he was talking about going back to his roots, but his roots were different than mine. He’s a little bit older than me, and basically his roots were Van Halen, and he talked about how he was so into Van Halen, and that he bought a whole row of front row tickets to go see a Van Halen concert, and just basically how SSD was just a progression into hard rock. He just wanted to reach thousands of people and all of these things, and it just totally turned me off.

Photobucket

I was the complete opposite. I was touring with 7Seconds and Justice League, and things of that sort, and I wanted to go back to playing way small shows and actually saying something that people are actually going to listen to. More people are going to hear you at a small show than at a big concert, you know what I mean?

So basically, I just wrote about that interview. A lot of it was taken from the interview, and the second verse was more or less an, “okay, we’re going to pick up where you guys left off” sort of thing. You guys helped form this whole straight edge movement…this whole hardcore movement, and we’re going to pick up where you left off and run with it.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Jason O’Toole/Life’s Blood

Photobucket
Jason with Life’s Blood at Pipe Dragon, Buffalo NY, Spring 1988, Photo: Geoffrey Nicholson

I’ve made my career in law enforcement. I am currently an investigator for the Office of Secretary of State in Atlanta, Georgia. One of my main responsibilities is investigating fraud and inaccuracy in elections. Our cases are diverse and one day I might be looking for someone who voted one time too many, the next day I might be interviewing a nurse who stole drugs from her job. I am also proud of the work we do with ICE and local police agenices who are fighting human trafficking and prostitution in their communities.

I’m married and raising two kids who also love music. I’m sure they’ll be sharing their gifts with the world in a few years. In the meantime, I’ve formed a band called MyRifle with Lew and Hobi from Our Gang, and Joe from Garden Variety. Our first release will be an EP on Freddy Alva’s legendary Wardance label. Sean Taggart did our artwork, and it’s old school hardcore through-and-through.
