Black flag

Background:

One of the most interesting hardcore bands came into existence thanks to the efforts of guitarist Greg Jinnah. This guy tired of the dominance of groups such as “Eagles”, “Steely Dan”and”ELO”, and he decided it was time for a new sound. Impressed by the simplicity and directness of the first album “Ramones”, Djinn assembled a small team of people, who could barely handle the tools to start a musical deconstruction. From the very beginning of its existence, “ Black flag ” were in opposition – because California is still not a very suitable place for hardcore. In general, it was amazing how the group has held the first four years.

Singers come and go, and sometimes the team played some instrumentals, and get out into the microphone poorat could anyone in the crowd of listeners. The first more or less ustakanilos composition was as follows: Ginn (guitar), Chuck Dukovski (bass), Robo (drums) and Dez Cadena (vocals). It is in this configuration in the late 1980s, the first American tour.

During the tour group had come for the boy named Henry Rollins and once during one of his concerts, he jumped on stage and sang with their idols one song. It was enough that he was asked to become the frontman “ Black flag “, the more that Cadena was thinking to change the microphone on the guitar. Henry did not have a lot of cajoling, he immediately sold their possessions and joined the ranks of the team, to continue their tour. The new composition lasted until the end of the UK tour in 1981, but managed to record a debut album. In England stuck drummer Robo and rescue “ Black flag “Bill Stevenson came from”Descendents”.

Meanwhile, the label something tightened with the release of their second album, and the band decided to release it on their own. The result was that the group violated the contract and because of this has been embroiled in a long trial. Despite this, the band released a collection of unsold items, though not becoming to use the name “ Black flag “.

In 1983, the team left Dukovski, and the sessions of the next record bass recorded Chuck, who has disappeared under the pseudonym of Dale Nixon. New bass player (or rather bassist) was discovered at the end of the year – it was Cyrus Rosslare. Next year has been busy – the band recorded two albums and toured extensively in this case both in America and in Europe. Once “ Black flag ” even managed to play three concerts in different states within 24 hours. But 1985, the year proved to be even more active than the previous – this time it was already recorded three albums.

Unable to bear such hard work from the group soon left Rosslare and Stevenson. Place on drums took Anthony Martinez and basuhu caught Sal Revuelta. However, the new composition is not left behind any records and spent only one tour. In mid-1986, Greg Ginn gathered his colleagues and told them about his departure from the “ Black flag “, which automatically meant the dissolution of the team.
