These guys are my heroes. Sean McCabe, who once puked on Christmas trees onstage, threw yogurt at Earth Crisis. Sean, R.I.P.

1993. Cupertino, CA. Right in the heart of what was soon to become (for a time) the new economic heart of America, Silicon Valley, came a hair-raising, filling-rattling scream of rage. Hidden behind the pristine office parks and suburban strip malls, a seething force of paranoid aggression was brooding, and its name was Mohinder. For a little over a year, Mohinder captured the attention of the Bay Area's alienated hardcore underground, providing a Northern California counterpart to the burgeoning San Diego art-punk scene (Mohinder, like Heroin, Antioch Arrow, et al, was associated with the notorious Gravity Records) with their brief but absurdly powerful bursts of shambolic noise and instantly legendary live performances. By the end of 1994 Mohinder was only a memory, the brevity of the band's existence a testament to its unsustainably fierce, almost superhuman energy.
Members went on to such bands as Jenny Piccolo, Indian Summer, The Anasazi, Calm, Duster, A-Set, and Makara.

A Skateboard Party is a live album by the Dead Kennedys and was released in August 1983 on Starving Missile Records in cooperation with Alternative Tentacles as a limited edition release. It features an exchange where Jello Biafra asks what the audience wants, a girl yells, "Autograph, goddammit!", prompting Jello to retort with, "I'll autograph it with my dental chart."
