    completely dedicated to queercore and the like. simple to play along. add names, songs or links to the very best or the most entertaining of the bunch.

    starting with:

    Extra Fancy. brilliant and fronted by the ever amazing Brian Grillo. brief run of alternative spotlight in the 90s before getting bumped from a mainstream label. Mr Grillo's most recent bit of wonder is Born In Death Valley.

    Extra Fancy - Sinner Man

    Katastrophe. queer straight man. FtM and a razor tongued delivery. embrace the indie/underground.

    YouTube - Team Dresch at Homo a Gogo 12: Musical Fanzine

    Team Dresch, "Musical Fanzine". A classic.

    "Queer sex is great, it's fun as shit - don't worry, Jesus is dead, and God don't exist. And swearing is fun, it's funner than piss, that it's stupid is a cruel and classist myth. Queer sex is great, it's fun as shit - don't kill yourself because people can't deal with your brilliance. Sometimes I can't remember why I wanna live, but then I think of all the freaks, and I don't wanna miss this."

    grizzly bear-"knife"
    grizzly bear is from brooklyn (2006), this video was made by encyclopedia pictura in san francisco a year or so ago.
    (interviews with the band make it clear that they took their name from a gay encounter of their founder, ed droste, who is gay. as for the rest of the band, does it really matter?)

    YouTube - All the Young Dudes- MOTT THE HOOPLE
    don't know who made the video, but it's got video of dudes, so seemed appropriate.
    it's the original "mott the hoople" version (written by bowie). i know it's an oldie moldie, but still stands up as kindof a queer anthem.




    also this one, most of you guys probably aren't familiar with it.

    Oh yeah, ML. I wanted to say that Extra Fancy song was killer. I had no idea what it was about when I first heard it at 13 on M2. Haven't heard anything else by them...

    Is Moz queer? I thought the party line was he was asexual.

    I have Extra Fancy's Sinnerman album on CD. I like it. The band didn't get supported too much by Atlantic Records. Frank Grillo ended going solo as a singer/songwriter.

    Mad props to you for including Hüsker Dü in your list (there were some great entries besides this one.)

    Along those lines, this song often gets stuck in my head:

    Sugar: If I Can't Change Your Mind

    "How can I explain away
    something that I haven't done?
    And if you can't trust me now
    you'll never trust in anyone."

    hmm....well I'm glad someone as wonderful as Morrissey is getting play. A shame if someone like him was asexual.
