XXX Dmut: Niel

The Underground in Decatur, IL held it's first tribute to Punk Rock on May 12th, 2001. The show kicked off with one of central Illinois' favorites, XXX Smut. Smut managed to jump start the evening full throttle without an ounce of mercy. The club quickly exploded into a frenzied mosh of respect. Smuts quick rhythm and traditional punk vocals brings you back to the roots of the genre that is being overlooked all to often today. XXX Smut has a dedication to their music and their fans that other bands should take a cue from. They've managed to acquire an awesome underground following over the years and I saw first hand why, when their long time bass player, "Mr. Quick" played the entire show with a broken elbow. Now thats Punk Rock!

Pork Chop Snifter: Cliff
XXX Smut soon gave the stage to long time allies and Decatur's own Punk legends, Pork Chop Shifter. The Shifter crew managed to put on a show that shamed all others I've seen them perform at. The band as a whole came together beautifully and their fans gave them lots of love in return. Shifter has a following that is as strong as they get, I've seen fans go to great lengths to show their respect and dedication - usually involving bare breasts, a Pork Chop favorite. Pork Chop Shifter has a great Punk sound that incorporates traditional Rock n' Roll guitar with killer punk vocals and rhythm. Pork Chop recently independently released a five track CD, titled "we're gonna f*ck your sister," that offers a great sampling of their talent.

The Resinators: Ed

The evening was topped off with The Resinators taking us all for a ride. Recently joining the family at Dart Records, The Resinators have an awesome sound that you can't help but love. Like Pork Chop, they've added a traditional Rock n' Roll edge to their Punk rooted sound - but each band is unique in their own right. The Resinators managed to keep the crowd movin' and their engines hot well into the evening. Hailing from Galesburg, IL they had no problem earning some respect in the central portion of the state.

All three of these bands, and their fans, will always be welcome at The Underground. They all rocked the club and helped us show Decatur what Punk Rock is truly about. Hats off to you all!!!
