Interviews with Bhopal Stiffs and Pegboy band members: Larry Damore, John & Joe Haggerty, Vince Marine, Steve Saylors, and Dave Schleitwiler. Co-hosted by Dan Vapid.
Bhopal Stiffs strikes close to my heart. They were the first band Screeching Weasel played with in Chicago, outside of our suburban homes. We played at a 21 and over club that was called Batteries Not Included. There was barely an audience there to see either bands but when Bhopal Stiffs got on stage their energy, music and commitment blew me away. They are first on my top two punk shows that I have ever seen. The second was Operation Ivy at Dirty Nellies. Vapid brings to the table his love of Pegboy, between the two of us, these bands fronted by Larry Damore are monumental in our growth as Chicago musicians.
