1982. Hand-drawn art. Rotte Kapplle translates to "Red Choir" auf deutsch. The band featured Stan, a guy who had more balls and nerve in one fingernail than a gas chamber full of contemporary indie rockers do (check out the photo below). Corporate Whores eventually evolved with members of Civil Death into UPS (Useless Pieces of Shit) who singlehandedly carried the weirdo post hardcore scene of Tucson on their back for a time. Meat Puppets were always down in Tucson, stinking up the place, torturing the audiences with their acid trips.

Heres a photo of Rotte Kappelle playing at the backstage, ca. 1982, taken by Ed Arnaud.
