Something In The Water.

The title of this blog was inspired by conversations that I've had with people from Memphis and even people from other parts of the world that would describe the sounds of southern punk and hardcore. When ever I listen to a band like Copout, or His Hero Is Gone, that conversation comes up.

This blog is dedicated to all bands from Little Rock and Memphis (although all other bands from the south maybe discussed). In my humble opinion Little Rock and Memphis hardcore/punk bands have rarely been talked about or seen. If you are in one of the bands and have stories or pictures to add let me know. A lot of the music that is posted is out of print, but if you ever find it buy it. I do not make any money off of this, this is to turn people on to stuff that has never really gotten much recognition. If you are in one of the bands and have a problem with your stuff being up here let me know and I will remove it

I saw these guys play with Trusty in 92 at Vino's. It was a great show and for a long time I tried finding this 7inch record and finally did. Some of the members of this band would play in Adios Gringo.

Taintskins 7 inch


  1. Taintskins was made up of members of Private War who had two demo tapes, both worth posting if you can find copies. Taintskins also had a demo tape that preceded this. It was sort of like Th'Inbred meets Celtic Frost. Good stuff.
