Interesting idea for a Germs-related community! There are several others floating around, but at this one, from its premise and mission statement, I get a much more intellectual feeling and less of a elite punk-club feeling. Great idea!
What do you people think of the song, "Communist Eyes", in terms of its message? I'm a little confused on whether Darby meant to give a sympathetic gaze toward communism or not. It seems a bit negative of a message, but they lyrical content (as well as the music) is simply beautiful. I guess given Darby's inclination toward fascism, it would be a sort of anit-communist message... sad. But at any rate, it's an amazing song, don't you think?
Is it too pompous, perhaps, to give an intellectual view toward the Germs and their music? I mean, sure, first and foremost it was PUNK, and I believe celebrated freedom and a backlash against the established music status quo at the time. But I also think that despite Darby Crash's violent disregard for his health and such, he had some ideas brewin' there!
Well, I guess I'm just trying to get a discussion going here, but I hope it works! ^_^
