Monday Photo Blog: Tony Lynch, Brown Sugar, and some mostly new bands from RVA!


September 3rd, 2012 by

Tony Lynch from Virginia is the focus of this Monday Photo Blog. He sent us some photos of recent shows in RVA, as well as one of the more informative letters to accompany his photos. I’ve included bits of it here in the captions below. You can see more of Tony’s photos at his flickr page, tonylynch and also check out the web show he’s involved with, 86reality.

Devils Hand are a new heavy hardcore punk band. Trevor (vox), and Hash (drums), Eric (guitar) and SAm (bass – also in Dry Spell). Very reminiscent of Japanese motorbeat hardcore (Bastard, Death Side, obvious Motorhead love shown), but their love for real American punk rock playing shows through as well. (Photo by Tony Lynch)

Dry Spell were the first of recent Richmond hardcore punk bands to be integrating straight ahead rock and roll vibes into their sounds. (Photo by Tony Lynch)

Unholy Thoughts have been around Richmond for a few years at this point. They have an LP, The Attic, out on Even Worse, and soon to be on Forcefield Records (RVA) in America. They share some of the same members of Devil’s Hand as well.  (Photo by Tony Lynch)

Unholy Thoughts play raw to the bone hardcore punk stuff intertwined with more dark garage punk and early Neurosis vibes. (Photo by Tony Lynch)

Wooo Tony! I still think if we teamed up & made a book like we’d talked about years ago…. it would rule.
