Punk Rock Life

Happy Birthday to BMF. You are now eternally young. Hey Ho Let’s Go!


In celebration of Jeff’s birthday I am sharing some of the Dew and Fresca Revue aka The Coke Bandits, a little rock band formed back in 2008 by MusicFilter. Every song performed was a cover song. 🙂 The album jumps off with a very special and long lost cover(just found today!)of the famous Ramones song, Blitzkrieg Bop which was performed by the band over 1000 times. However this one features Fanta Orange on vocals, a Tennessee shaman who often jammed with the band. I think you will find it amazing. The next three songs are from Jeff’s 2008 MusicFilter podcast show where he reviewed album songs. And the finale Orange Socks is an obscure weird song we found on Napster many years ago when the Internet was still fresh and underground! It represents the true punk BMF I love! So on with the show. Enjoy!

BMF gave me a 000017 today for his birthday. August 5, 2017


I have this wonderful string of August days that include some of my most beloved people’s birthdays. My mother on August 4th, my Shelby on August 7th and most of all my BMF today on August 5th.  He would have been a certain age but now he is ageless. When we were first together he didn’t feel his birthday was such a big day. He would say oh it’s just another day. I said that is ridiculous. Your birthday is the greatest day of your year! And from that first birthday we spent together we would celebrate and make his birthday a big deal every year. Sometimes it was just simple with a bottle of absinthe, crazy loud music and a deck of cards, sometimes a small party with family and cake coring, trips to see the Sex Pistols and Van Halen but in 2010 BMF had the biggest most epic punker birthday ever to happen as far as he was concerned. We thrived on it for a long time. He was in love with it!  We were going to try and top it, but we never did.

Now he’s gone and I’m alone on his special day. I plan to celebrate him quietly with marathon work on MusicFilter. He would have liked it. I started tonight to refresh and restore his box trilogy posts at MusicFilter. Those boxes represent so many things that were going on with BMF at the time in 2009. He built them with his hands and he enjoyed it and was so proud of the result. He was really very happy creating them while listening to his music, smoking cigarettes and sipping bourbon all night. When he finished his punk rock shed he placed the trilogy so he could always see them, open them and enjoy them. Now his remains rest inside one along with his special favorite items and photos and I can see and touch and love them. These are priceless artifacts and a reminder of this man I loved so much.

And then he rewards me with his signs. (more…)

I’m Crying. Punk Rock Life without BMF.

I’m crying for the mother who lost her only son, I’m crying for the father who lost his baby child, I’m crying for the sister who lost her loving man, I’m crying for the brother who couldn’t see the light, I’m crying, I’m crying, I’m crying. ~Lucinda

Despite the soundtrack’s notoriety, this will mark its first legit release on vinyl (there was a South Korean release of “dubious origin”), and they went all out with the presentation. The deluxe package comes in either Clarence-inspired “king gold” vinyl (limited to 297 copies), Alabama-inspired clear with aqua and pink splatter vinyl (limited to 686), or white blood splatter vinyl (limited to 2,000).

Our True Romance Story

Other than the violence and mob mayhem this movie has elements to describe what our true romance felt like…two lonely and unlikely people winding up together, compassion, adventures, Elvis, phone booth sex :). BMF loved Pulp Fiction (BMF!) and from there discovered everything Quentin Tarantino to include True Romance. He calls me up one day and tells me drop what you are doing and go find this movie and watch it. So of course I did. (more…)

A treasure found at the punk rock house.


Today I found this t-shirt packed away with what looks like goodwill clothes. I was so thrilled to see it. I bet he wore this shirt 1000 times. It was a favorite. And it has his life all over it. It was musty and I washed it and when I pulled it out of the dryer it felt like he was standing there ready to put it on.
