Fuck-Ups - FU 82
One of the craziest bands to come out of the San Francisco bay area original punk scene. The Fuck Ups were banned from almost every venue they played or even stepped foot into. Singer Bob Noxious was well hated by all of the lame hippie-punk types in the area. I heard a story about a show they were booked to play in Hollywood at a record shop in '83 and the promoter wouldn't put them on because of their name, so they hooked their amps up in the alley out back and played their set out there. Right after the female backing vocalists known as the "fuckettes" robbed the liquor store down the street which would not allow punks in even as recently as 2004 when i tried to buy a bottle of whiskey there.
