Dave Mello

Jewdriver original lineup after a show I booked for them in Oakland at "Punx Not Presses" on 40th and Adeline in 2003. It's their guitar player Dave's birthday, so wish Mr. Mello a happy one if by chance you spot him in line at Gordo on Solano.

Malcolm X

"I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against." 
-Malcolm X

DISCORDIA - live in Mexico 

I used a song from their demo on the first Urban Guerrilla Zine compilation back in 2001 (it came free with a zine). This video looks like it was probably shot in the late 90s. Members of Discordia went on to play in bands like Bumbklaatt and Coaccion, both of which I booked shows for here (Bay Area) up until the late 2000s.
