FOE #2 1984

Click the cover for a pdf of the complete issue of FOE #2

Reflections of FOE #2:
  • Thank you to Skate (Brent Burke) and Scott Andrews who were main contributors.
  • FOE #2 was the first of the amazing covers by Sue Coyle. From this point forward FOE's covers featured those who had a talent for creating great visuals. I thank Sue and all the artists I got to work with over the years.
  • 7 Seconds interview by Scott.
  • Only issue #2 and already FOE was in touch with various record labels and other scenes. Everyone was desperate to talk to each other back then! Those 22 cent stamps really irked me!
  • Lehigh Valley shows were in full effect. Bodies In Panic, Dead Milkmen, Homo Picnic, Circle of Shit, Pleased Youth, Decry, AOD, Bedlam, and FOD. Youth Brigade cancelled!
  • Decry, Dead Milkmen, Pleased Youth, Russian Meatsquats, Youthful Agression - yup, Johnny Generic was right, this was the first West Catty Playground show, 11/18/84. Next up FOD, YA, Constraint, Russian Meatsquats 12/23/84 and AOD & Bedlam 1/12/85 (I was so nervous about losing money setting up this show).
  • Nearby shows killed:
    • Suicidal Tendencies, Fang, 76% Uncertain, Pleased Youth 9/30/84
    • Husker Du, McRad, Dead Milkmen 10/7/84
    • Government Issue, Dr. Know 10/13/84
  • I loved that Futile Effort cassette tape.
  • Some fantastic reviews in this issue:
    • AOD "Wacky Hijinks of"
    • Articles of Faith "Give Thanks"
    • Various Artists "Flipside Vinyl Fanzine #1"
    • F "You Are an EP"
    • Subterfuge "Who's the Fool"
    • Various Artists "Nuke Your Dink"
    • Dr. Know "Plug In Jesus"
    • BGK "Jonestown Aloha"
    • Black Flag "Slip It In"
    • Rattus "s/t"

"The difference between enjoying your music on vinyl vs. digital is similar to the difference between experiencing the world's beauty in person and looking at pictures of them on the net."
