The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.

All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc... If you like it, please go buy it.

Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Black Flag

Over the holidays I got very nostalgic. My parents brought up most of my stuff from home and now it's in my attic. I have Baseball cards, gi joes, star wars figures (with all their weapons), but the must touching thing to me was my skateboard decks. All the days of Mark Gonzales, Natas Kaupas, Mike Vallely, Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, and Tony Hawk came rushing back. Enough that I grabbed one of the still complete decks and gave it a spin around supurbia. I loved skateboarding...I still do.

After that I had to go back in the vault and pull out all my old tapes and cds . Instead of posting tracks that I know you can still buy (hint hint, link below), I decided to post a show I got a while ago on a great site.

When the show was recorded I was not aware of one of the greatest hardcore punk bands ever (I was 5). But they were in constant play only a few years later. That's right 'm talking about BLACK FLAG!

I grabbed this show from Shaved Neck (great source for hardcore punk) and by all means want you to go check their site out. A great history source and some great shows up for sampling. They made it possible for me to have this show and I'm just passing it along.

    Thansk very much for posting this. It's one of the few BF bootlegs I haven't heard. Really good. I'm having a really hard time saving to my computer... any advice? I can play it, but when I try to save the files they are blank.

    This is my favorite era of the band. Thanks so much.

    I tried to download the tracks to a friends computer and everything worked fine. If you are still having problems, please email me.
