CREEPY CREEEEEEEEEEEPS!!!!!!!

the set did bring the...ahem...dead evening back to life in a BIG way.

I saw Otto shaking his booty out there, as did my 47 year old ass!

The Creeps looked...um...creepy as hell, but it looked to me like a helluva good time was had by all, mini-creeps too.

Actually, i didnt see the old-fogies take a powder until the Ghastly Ones went on.

So yeah, i will lobby for the Creeps to be axed back next year for sure!

Regarding the comment about the young man who may need deoderant - what a totally obnoxious thing to say. I'm sure it was unpleasant for your nose in such close quarters, but it was only for a while. I'm sure you could have found a more sensitive way to express yourself here.

Regarding this being a family event - well, if you're willing to get stinking drunk in front of your kids - what's a little hard-driving music? I thought it all went together well and hope that future shows are as diverse as this one was. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE ALL the music that we heard - it was just refreshing to hear a little something else as well.

As for the Creepy Creeps - wow! I'm pretty much an old stick in the mud regarding music, but my 18 year old (who was REALLY bummed she couldn't be there) has been turning me on to more hip music in the last few years and I totally appreciated your sound and appearance. This was our first TO and we had no clue what to expect so I just assumed music like yours was par for the course. I immediately purchased a vinyl and t-shirt for my daughter but I'm not beyond snagging that vinyl once in a while for a personal listen!

I wasn't there, but I am happy to read that there was a pit at TO8! Shouldn't be a big surprise considering that many TCers are old-school punks. BigTikiDude's comment made me realize that my almost 47-year old "ass" has been in a few pits this year and seeing the comments from what sounds like members that were mildly alarmed by this kind of activity makes me think that maybe I need to grow up, oy.

My one gripe - to the fat kid moshing with the mohawk and the zombie make up...you're like 13 or 14 now...time for deodorant, son. You nasty. On a side note....Crazy Al has way more energy than any 14 year old kid. He can kick your ass at pogo-ing any day. Oh and he smells better than you.

Great show guys!



Ha ha ha yeah that kid did reeeek.
and I was next to Al alot of the time, trying to keep up with him moshing pogoing, and slamming,
and he plum wore me out.
that guy is a monster.

"Totally obnoxious thing to say" ??? Huh? Apparently you (beadtiki) didn't have to smell it. Were you watching the show from the safety of your balcony? "...such close quarters" were not required to catch wind of said invasive b.o. problem. Given the severity of the stench, I'd have to say that Jason's comments are highly understated.

Nevertheless, the Creepy Creeps indeed rocked hard and made up for the foul air.

The CC's rocked TO8 and stole the show! My biggest regret was not picking up a CD because I left my wallet up in my room.

Hakalugi (great name, by the way!) - I WISH I had had a room that looked out over the festivities - alas I was relegated to a golf-course view on the far side. As to where we were, well, didn't have an opportunity to be up close and personal with the stage and the unfortunate kid with the BO, but we were down on the grass nonetheless. I guess I'm just amazed that an adult, such as yourself, would pick on a young man who may, by the way, read your comments, as I'm sure he was dragged along by his folks. I'm no stranger to being in close quarters with those who do not bathe regularly or wear deodorants, but I certainly wouldn't go around telling them how badly they reek. I'm sure no adult has told this kid he needs to start using SOMEthing to cover the odor - and kids don't even notice they stink.

Anyhow - don't want to hi-jack the thread any longer. Just thought that civility is slowly going the way of the dinosaur and it's disappointing.

Long Live Creepy Creeps!

So is bathing, evidently, and that's disappointing too. Look, the kid was at least 17, old enough to drive a car, and flunk out of community college. He was not some poor smelly little elementary school kid picked on in the school yard and dragged there by his parents, nor was he afflicted with a genetic bathing disorder beyond his control (maybe). He was some big smelly teenager almost of (legal) drinking age that crashed the party. If you're old enough to drive, date, party, go to shows, and crash Oasis, one would think you'd be old enough to bathe. Remember, we are supposed to be Sophisticated Savages, and part of sophistication in my book includes personal hygiene. If anyone was lacking in civility, it was the non wrist band wearing stinky party crasher. Gheesh!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed - and believe me, I never would have picked on a young man because of his weight (any of you that know me know I am the very LAST person in the world that can talk about that!) or even if he was just standing there, watching the show and dancing like everyone else. Instead, he and his friends decided to start a slam pit front and center. I don't mean to single him out, but he was the one that stood out from his friends due to his size, demeanor (hellbent on knocking down everything/everyone in his path), and aforementioned Zombie makeup, mohawk, B.O., and Misfits t-shirt. And on second guess, yeah, he was quite a bit older than 14 since I have a 12 year old, and this kid was quite a bit larger and older than him. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see bands like Zombie Surf Camp, the Creeps, and the Ghastly Ones at every Oasis. But I also understand that they are not every ones cup of tea, and a bunch of kids purposely trying to spoil the party just amplifies the wilder aspect of these bands.

On another note, just why IS Tiki the Punk Rock Retirement Plan? Seriously, I've never met so many 40-50 year old ex-punkers in my life! Just think, in 30 years my buddy with the Misfits T and the Mohawk could be a full-fledged Tikiphile.

It's not just Tiki.

Surf, Rockabilly, even lounge and swing. Most of those music scenes are fully staffed by ex-punkers....


and the ex rockers,well, we all know where THEY go!! (Jimmy Buffet concerts!!!)

Regarding the stinking zombie problem, I think the original poster of that comment (Jason) was kind of being humorous about the whole thing. I did not think it was all that harsh....
Let's not strive for political correctiveness ALL the time, kay?
