Split Lip Rayfield is now on archive.org! There are 26 shows up there now I think.

I have three close friends that are really into this band besides me, and I have seen them a couple of times, one time at a bar called Sherpa & Yeti's in Breckenridge, CO, and another time in Lee's Liquor Lounge in Minneapolis. They play this hybrid of punk/thrash/speed/redneck bluegrass that is one of the most interesting genres of music these days, and they are amazing instrumentalists. The bass player plays a bass that is made from a gas tank from a 78 Mercury strung with a weedwhacker line, named Stitchgiver.
Every show they play now is dedicated to the late singer/guitarist Kirk Rundstrom, whose life was cut short by cancer a couple of years ago.
Definitely worth checking out, they have a couple albums that are pretty good too.

Great band names are always occurring to me (Mental Cheesecake is one I would like to use once I learn to play an instrument and get a band together) but I don't think "Split Lip Rayfield" would ever have occurred to me. Is it some sort of inside joke?

I'm cuing up some music now...

Awesome! Seriously, they are very talented, not just a gimmick. From what I understand, the bassist grew up in Gumbo, Missouri (how's that for a town name?) and Split Lip Rayfield was the name (assuming it's a nickname) of a person who lived there that he knew.
If you get a chance, they do the George Jones/Melba Montgomery song Easy Street ("Livin on Easy Street, with a dog and a Persian cat," bump ba bump) that is pretty good.
This is the album I'm most familiar with, features Redneck Tailgate Dream and A Little More Cocaine please amongst the other tunes.

Punk has become a meaningless term. It used to mean "I can't fucking sing, I can't fucking play, and I don't fucking care. So [CENSORED] you." It was a philosophy of life, a code; there was honor to it. Now it means... nothing?

Help me understand.

Punk, to me, is a label for any sort of music that can claim major influence from the Ramones and the New York Dolls.
I've posted this one before and someone else clued me in on it, but here's Gregg Ginn from Black Flag.

Ah ha.

I usually (in my ignorance) think of the [CENSORED] Pistols when I think about punk.

I'm enjoying "The High Price of Necromancy" from 6/10/10. Laughing

Interesting music .... what is it some kind of bluegrass!

You know to me over here this is kinda exotic music, but in a good kind of way. I just listened to some JGAB which is kind a traditionel / bluegrass music and it has a direct impact on me.

I'll take a listen to that band definetely. Are there other bands of that kind around?

In many ways these guys remind me of String Cheese Incident. They are on the Archive, Tizi, represented by a mere 1,127 shows. You might like them. They go (went?) for longer arrangements and jams.

The [CENSORED] Pistols were influenced by the Ramones. Once "punk" reached England, it started mutating into a whole different animal. The Clash, for what it's worth, was compared by Lester Bangs to the Grateful Dead as one of the only bands who shared community with their fans to the point that they were basically on the same level instead of being typical aloof rock stars. This may have changed over time once either band got big enough though that this wasn't really possible anymore.

Awesome man! There are other bands like this, one I saw was called [CENSORED] and Brown, I will have to poke around to come up with some more band names for you.
Old and in the Way and Garcia bluegrass is awesome. I love Old & in the Way's version of Angel Band.
I uploaded a Garcia bluegrass type show for somebody on megaupload, which isn't the greatest file uploading service, but it is all right.
