Staten Island Underground Music History[edit]

This is a listing of Staten Island, New York "Punk" and "Indie" bands, and their known members from the 70's to the present day. It represents the local history of Staten Island bands, 'zines, musicians, studios and venues.

DIRTY LOOKS (Late 70s)
Patrick Barnes
Marco Sin
Peter Parker
Staten Island's own "Dirty Looks" had a Self Titled LP on Stiff Records, 2 Singles also on Stiff, and a song on the highly sought after "Son of Stiff" compilation LP.-DE Dirty Looks (not to be confused with the late-'80s metal band of the same name) were formed in the late '70s in Staten Island, NY. Composed of Patrick Barnes (guitar/vocals), Peter Parker (drums/vocals), and Marco Sin (bass/vocals), the trio began playing their hard-rocking power pop at Max's Kansas City and CBGB where they were discovered by Stiff Records' Dave Robinson. Robinson signed them, anticipating they were "the next big thing." After releasing one brilliant single ("Let Go"), a good but unfortunately overlooked debut LP for Stiff, and a mediocre follow-up, the band faded into obscurity. — Chris Woodstra (allmusic.com)

BITTER UPROAR (82-?)
A band from Tottenville High School and had one of those old live at b=cbgbs records JC
One of the first SI bands to have an LP out (and to use the "X" logo with S.I.H.C. written in it) and gigged religously at CBs at the Sunday matinees. Nick the Yak

"Played a massively influential gig at Tottenville High School in l986, inspiring many imitators. Metal pop-tarts Pierced Spirit pulled the plug on us as the crowd became too violent" -Nick the Yak.
Organized Confusion included a few Black Flag and S.O.D. covers in their set of mostly original songs.

BLOODFEAST (86)
nick the yak
nick the yak
Dom Viola
Joe Cato

"The same as O.C. but without John Lisa (We got a letter from a NJ death metal band, who stole the name from us, telling us to drop the name or he'd sue. The wimps never even saw the l963 film we were named after!). I attepted to sing the same songs as O.C. to no avail!" -Nick The Yak

NATALIE WOODS POOL PARTY 1986-1987
John Lisa
Nick the Yak
Alex Armitage (Anal Al Arm-massage)

NWPP released 1 full length cassette called "7-11 on Sublevel 3". Sold over 1000 copies total which was a lot for a punk band in the 80's. Of which 200 copies via mailorder strictly based on a rave review from Maximum Rock and Roll comparing the band to Code of Honor.

GG Allin
John Lisa
Scott Sabado

GG was not from Staten Island but members of this backup band 'THE NY SEWER SCUM' were S.I. all stars. Allin had backup bands all over the U.S. A big SI punk rock historical event was GG hanging out at the old pool hall in New Dorp.-JC

"GG was a sick animal onstage no doubt, but having hung with the guy a few nights, I can attest he was a smart, friendly, funny guy to be with. Rest in Peace, knucklenuts." -JL

BLIND RAGE (late 80's?)

Kenny "NoBody" Botte - Vocals
Keith Kaos - Guitar
Chris Eye-a-nace - Bass

After the demise of SAW SAW, I joined Kenny "NoBody" Botte, Keith Kaos, and Chris Eye-a-nace. We did about 5 gigs, the best being our opening spot for the legendary Johnny Thunders at the Redspot about 5 months before he killed himself with Meth. XXY employed many stage antics (a definite influence in bands such as Barny Rubble and the c-stubble), including me in a King Kong outfit fighting off a 6-foot inflatable Godzilla after the third song, and singer NoBody flinging real CHICKEN HEADS into the crowd during our hooker-anthem of the same name. XXY was histrified in l990. Nick The Yak

RAT CATCHER (1988-1989)
John Lisa
TJ Quatrone
Sal Cannestra
Marc Treboschi

Serpico predecessor sounding like early Descendents. Hard and poppy punk. One well produced full length, but unreleased, album called Smell the Glover.
One live cassette from CBGB called 'We Rock, You Don't"
Band imploded in 1989


OLD MAN TOAST (late 80's)
TJ Quatrone
Vinny on bass
Peck on Vocals
Mike Sherman Gtr

Only a few practices, followed John Lisa's ALIENS obsession with song "Alien Keg Party" after someone commented that the collection of alien monitor blips on a computer screen in the movie "looks like the Aliens are having a keg party."

Favorite line from the song was, "Who would've guessed that they'd party like this?" TJ

Featured the remarkable drumming of TJ Quatrone, Vinny on bass, and the rest is a blank right now. TJ jammed in more bands than anyone else I knew in the 80s. Nick the Yak

THE SCREAMING SKULLS (late 80's to Present)
Anthony Amplo
Nick The Yak
Paul?
Vinny?

After/during my stint in XXY, I was recruited on drums for the seminal underground noise/acid/horror band from new Dorp beach THE SCREAMING SKULLS. Founder Anthony Amplo on guitar, me on bass (and mostly drums), Paul on keyboards and triangle (I kid you not), Vinny on drums, Ang on bass, plus more members than a NEGATIVLAND record. We did several live shows featuring movie stills flashing behind us. One gig at PARK VILLA featured out song DIE sung by Tottenville scream queen JENNIFER WEKERLY (spelled something like that) yelping her brains out while XXY's Kenny NoBody "sexually assaulted" her on stage! THE SCREAMING SKULLS still exist in various forms and gig around the city. Nick The Yak

GORE (late 80's)
John silvers & friends
Stapes
Evil Ed
Mike Delorenzo

GORE wasn't actually "John Silvers and friends", it was John Silvers and Scott Stapes (and on one recording, Evil Ed and Mike Delorenzo). The 4 demo covers I have say that all songs were recorded "In the Abyss of Club Stapes" and only list those two as "the band". Actually, "Jesus Christ" is listed as a guest on one song as well...but I'm not sure there's any recorded proof of that. I don't think he was from Staten Island.---SISxE

You can add Little Richie (he was our version of Avail's Beau Beau.)

We played our first show in 86 at the Wave and opened for about 8 glam metal bands. In the audience were Little Richie,Vinnie Cangelosi, Vanessa and Laura,Ronnie,Dom Viola,Mugsy, Frank Pitbull,Dale,Bobby Hill and about 100 gay metalheads. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. We changed our name to Sick Society later that year as there was an OI! band from California called Headstrong already.
P.S. - The glam guys HATED us. JC

My first SI show was a Sick Society show; I was 14 and scarred as fuck. Chris Schiavo

And if you're gonna put bands on there that pretty much never existed (i.e. half of those Stapes bands), you certainly cant omit Public Nudity, a band formed after the members thought it would be a good idea to drop acid at 3am and go back to one of their parents houses to record their new hiphop masterpiece. Public Nudity recorded 1 song that night, on which Joe Heineman (cant recall his mc name) proudly boasted "I got juice like Robinson Caruso / When i shoot my load, my eyes bulge like Mike Russo."-DE

This band had 3 incarnations. DJ Robot Monster came up with the name. The first was Alex, DJ Robot and me, recording weird ass songs on my 4 track. Alex worked at Power Play Studios at the time (working with KRS One, Salt n Pepa, EPMD etc). He would record loops onto casette tape, and Robot and I would incorprate noise over these loops. This was all pre-BECK so I was a tad upset when he became a mainstream superstar. Versions 2 and 3 revolved around the rhyme stylings of Stapes and Jason Carter, working with a live band, I was the unoffical recorder of such happening Version 3 ties up the loose ends with DJ Robot doing the scratching.

KFN's backup band BOOTY CENTRAL(92-95)
Donato Fornabaio - Drums
Steve Pepe - Guitar
Matt D'Ambrosio - Bass
Will Eats Bees - Keyboard

Staten Island's legendary hip-hop group, KFN, created the sounds and the lifestyle that paved the way for Jay-Z, Eminem and Diamond Shell to sell millions of records and made it acceptable to live the life of the billionaire-pimp-philosopher-king so common today. With smash hits like "Cookie Jar" and "Ode To My DJ" the self-proclaimed "Wizards of New Dorpian Funk" were on the verge of a hostile takeover of hip hop and possibly even Western Civilization itself. If KFN had only stopped chugging Midnight Dragons for breakfast, lunch and dinner they could have been a household name - much like Hellmann's Mayonaise or Turtle Wax.

Fun facts: KFN was known for arriving on stage riding a two-seater bicycle, throwing lavish after-show parties with free 40's of Da Dragon, having an army of underage female fans/stalkers, and The Bill Guido Kissing Booth (trademark pending).

In 1994, KFN tried their hand as club promoters, creating probably the most influential night club of the decade. It was named the "Ragtop Lounge", located in the Engine Room (basement of the Palladium 14th St, NYC) and featured all the antics their fans and followers had come to expect. Old School hip hop, disco, funk, classics, and of course Stump Mike The Drunk. Their run at the famed Palladium night club ended when a freak slam dunk contest shattered the main support beam of the club, which eventually condemed the building and led to its demolition KFN had many duplicators, but there was only by one innovator..

Shake won First Place in the "Battle of the Bands" that was presented and hosted by Club Drink (formerly Club Cylo, formerly the Pony Express) circa 2000-2001. However, the owners of Club Drink did not pay any of the winning prize allocations (as they advertised they would) for the first, second, or third place prizes which were won by three separate bands for that contest. Tappy Phillips from Channel 7 News was contacted and she filmed an episode of "7 On Your Side" featuring Shake and about their refusal to be awarded their earned prize winnings from the owners of Club Drink. According to Tappy Phillips, she was unable to air the episode because there was no resolution to the problem. She stated that her research indicated that the owners of Club Drink fled the U.S. to Europe to evade taxes and to not pay their obligations for the rent of Club Drink, or to any of the Battle of the Band participants, as well as vendors that supplied the club while it was open. Shake has still not received their prize which was said to include a cash award, features written about them in The Aquarian Weekly, and the E.C. Rocker, as well as a recording deal that was to include a minimum of one studio-quality album of their music.
