Off-site: THE OXYMORONS on Take No Prisoners TV (1994)

A video of my old band playing a show in Flint, Michigan, where we used to play quite often with a Flint band called THE WILL (more on them in a future post when I upload their cassette).
This show was recorded and later broadcast on Flint public access television. A couple of years ago, that show turned up on the internet.

Take No Prisoners TV actually did a number of shows featuring punk rock bands from the late '80s and early '90s from Michigan and parts beyond. You can find those shows and more (including performances by SCREECHING WEASEL, THE QUEERS, and RATS OF UNUSUAL SIZE) at the Flint Underground Music Archive.

Please pay no attention to what I'm wearing in this video: baseball cap and long sleeve turtleneck? Not sure what I was thinking. Flint, I guess, is just one of those places where you do things that are best ignored.

take care

UPDATE: as of 3-31-2011, this video seems to no longer be available, nor do any other videos previously offered under the "Take No Prisoners" TV masthead. Don't know what to tell you. Such is the transient nature of the web.
