Gestapo's Law: Everything that can go right will go right!

On St. Patrick’s Day 2010, I took the crazy train to Brooklyn and ended up at The Trash Bar, where I experienced one of the best parties I’ve ever been to. Now, I’ve been to some killer parties, but this one had a few special ingredients: Murphy’s Law, the New York Hard Core crew, the legendary Jimmy Gestapo, and a packed house! What went down was history in the making. I had been told so many times by my friends Chris and Greasy that I should go see a Murphy’s Law show, because they are an amazing band and they party like no other. So I was very pleased that all those rumors proved true.

I had a chance to steal Jimmy Gestapo and Raven from Murphy’s Law away from the center of the party and here is what went down.

HU: What’s up New York? What’s up the whole world?

Jimmy Gestapo: Chaos tonight!

HU: Yeah! We are at The Trash Bar. I am here with two of the members of Murphy’s Law. I got to be honest with you; it is the first time I’ve seen Murphy’s Law live, believe it or not. But all my friends where always like: “Yo, you got to go see them!”

Jimmy: Tonight?! Oh man! Dude! Fuck!

HU: Tonight, was my first night.

Jimmy: The cops here tonight, the cops love me... Firemen were here…

Roadie: What’s up? What are these?

Jimmy: Those are my le, le, le, le, lady, le, le… Nah, that is just the way a Murphy’s Law show goes. Just family!

HU: Amazing! Honestly, all my friends where always selling it to me but this was the proof of it. Dude! In case you are wondering who this is. It is Jimmy Gestapo. I mean you do not need an introduction… New York Hard Core legend, punk legend… And I liked what you said before, because it’s something similar to what I am going for. You joined the hard core and Punk scenes with Black N Blue Productions, and also by doing different things.

Jimmy: It changed from what it was. The crew that was started out when we where kids, it’s a different thing. Now with Black N Blue Productions we put out shows, we do security for shows, we stop problems at shows. But that is what that is.

HU: And of course Murphy’s Law is nothing new. You said almost 30 years? When is the anniversary?

Jimmy: 25? On New Years Eve! 25, yeah? 26 years?

Raven: Yeah.

Jimmy: Raven has been with me in the band the whole time.

Raven: The funny thing about it was that Jimmy saw me playing with another band called The Stimulators. And Harley Flanagan (co-founder of the Cro Mags), you know who Harley is, was playing drums and at the time he was like fourteen. Jimmy saw this; I was completely jazzed by the idea of having a band. That’s how we hooked up all those years ago.

Jimmy: Raven played in a band called the The Stimulators and it was like the first punk rock hard core band. And then him and I became friends. And we have been on tour together as friends and family forever man.

Raven: Yeah.

Jimmy: He is an amazing horn player. I chose to have horns in the band from like X Ray Spex and stuff like that. Punk rock bands are like metal based. But my band and my friends’ band is based on punk rock, ska, hard core… punk rock! Really. (Laughter.)

HU: It is a great jam. I mean, honestly.

Jimmy: Nothing to do with metal though.

HU: One thing that is amazing about you guys is that you persevered for so long and you have never compromised your music. You have been doing your own style, you created your own thing. And that is something that whoever does not appreciate that, does not know anything about fucking music.

Jimmy: As you saw with the cops rolling on me about some guy… street shit still happens and kids still take my back. I am big, very big. And that is why I said tonight, I was like: “Do I need a gun?” And everyone raised their hands and said no! And that is what I told the cop. I was like: “I do not need a gun.” I laughed at the cop. I was like: “Do you understand that if I have a problem here everybody has my back?” He is like: “There’s a lot of kids here.” I was like: “Yeah, all those kids are all my bullets. They are my family. They are my friends.” And the only reason they take my back is if somebody… like the creep that called them, calls them. It was really kind of weird but it was enlightening for the cops and for myself tonight. What’s so cool is that it still happens though. Street shit.

HU: Exactly dude. That is how it has been since you have been around.

Jimmy: Yeah.

HU: Tell me Jimmy. What did you grow up listening to?

Jimmy: Sex Pistols, Stimulators, SVT Jack Casady, The Heartbreakers, Iggy and the Stooges… I grew up with punk rock. The Saints. You know? But now a lot of bands are very generic.

HU: And dude, when you started getting involved in the New York Hard Core scene, it was such a small thing.

Jimmy: We started the New York Hard Core scene! (Laughter). There was no hard core scene; there was a punk rock scene.

HU: And look what it is now. And I mean you are one of the ambassadors.

Jimmy: It is an international thing. It is crazy!

HU: It is amazing.

Jimmy: It is crazy, but it is cool man! (Laughter.)

HU: It is awesome when you see fucking hard core in Japan, in Australia…

Jimmy: That is where hard core is. Hard core is in Brazil, in Puerto Rico, in Cuba and Colombia where I am going. Its working class kids, kids that work… may be punk rock or hard core. Its still working class, just like all the kids that listen to what we listen to... even if they do not like hard core, punk rock, whatever… I am 44, they all work man. Its all working class kids, all kids that struggle. It is not a rich kids thing, its not like disco. It is not like Gaga! Like Lady Gaga.

HU: (Laughter). Everybody keeps mentioning Lady Gaga.

Jimmy: Lady Gaga is awesome! She used to be a punk rock girl.

HU: Yeah, she is doing her own thing. You know what I am saying?

Jimmy: Ahhh, she is punk rock!

(Roadie hands a bottle of Jagermeister to Jimmy)

HU: There you go! Cheers! Ohhh what?! He gives you an empty bottle?

Jimmy: Yeah, we use it as a cowbell usually.

HU: Dude, I was thinking… I never have seen a band drink like this on stage since Pantera man.

Jimmy: Pantera?

HU: Since fucking Pantera!

Jimmy: Pantera? No we are not talking about that…

HU: No, raging the way you guys do. It is like fucking mayhem, the booze was everywhere!

Jimmy: Pantera. Phil does his own thing man. COC, Down… those are my people man! But Pantera, they do not do it like hard core and punk rock man. They never supported a band like that. There are other bands that try to get down with our family now. Too late man… Too late!

HU: Right. The foundations are laid down.

Jimmy: Yeah. The relation is already laid down. Too late man, you know?

HU: And you mentioned you are going to Colombia. I am personally from Colombia.

Jimmy: Cool!

HU: One of the things that brought me to New York was hard core. I was listening to Madball, Sick of It All…

Jimmy: It is an honor to me but I am not in Madball. Madball has got a label, Madball is… Freddy is my brother but Madball is huge man! The people from Colombia reached out to me to play and I was like: “Wow! Holy shit!” Real cool!

HU: When is that happening?

Jimmy: July 4th! (Laughter).

HU: (Laugher).

Jimmy: Independence Day in America, Independence Day for Jimmy Gestapo in Colombia.

HU: Amazing! And have you been to Colombia before?

Jimmy: No! I cannot wait to try the coffee… (Laughter).

HU: The coffee, the women bro…

Jimmy: (Laughter). I cannot wait to just go to Colombia man. You know? Murphy’s Law never had a label or anything. I played Japan. I played Japan like 32 shows, not 9 shows. So its my friends, I cannot believe what my life has become. But I still work every day. I do carpentry and stuff with a bunch of punk rock guys. You know, my life is a two way street.

HU: Right, you are promoting shows with Black N Blue constantly.

Jimmy: Working class motherfucker. Working class right to the police.

HU: I mean you never stop... You guys have been doing Black N Blue productions for how long already?

Jimmy: Black N Blue? I have been in Black N Blue for 20 years.

Roadie: We had a really great night tonight and nobody is cooler than Jimmy!

HU: (Laughter). There he goes.

Roadie: So fuck yourself!

Jimmy: Thank you man!

HU: Hellyeah man!

Jimmy: Thank you bro!

Those where the true words of a man who cares about his family and his friends, beyond it all, which ultimately is the whole concept behind the New York Hard Core crew. Many misunderstand it, many are jealous of the camaraderie that exists within the crew. Regardless of where you stand, the music that Jimmy Gestapo has created with his band Murphy’s Law is timeless and do not even think they are going to finish their extensive career anytime soon.

It was announced by Cuz Joe from Black N Blue Productions that the band is working on a brand new record! According to Jimmy, the album (which will be released by I Scream Records) is in the works, with no release date yet.

After seeing Murphy’s Law take over The Trash Bar in Brooklyn and proving that New York Hard core is alive and well, all I can say is that whoever questions the musical power that has existed in New York for such a long time, does not know anything about art of music.

Here is a live clip of Murphy's Law doing their classic "Panty Raid" on St. Patrick's Day!

The Dillinger Escape Plan: "Option Paralysis"

Well, this is the first time I’ve “reviewed” an album. So here it goes. "Option Paralysis" is the fourth Dillinger Escape Plan record. (If you exclude "The Under The Running Board" and "Irony is A Dead Scene" EP’s.)

It starts off in a typical, spastic Dillinger fashion reminiscent of “Calculating Infinity” boasting some lunatic riffage, speedy, precise drumming and some gnarly sound effects. The overall mix on this album is great. I am a HUGE fan of the nice roomy drum tone. (Kudos to the engineer Steve Evetts! And obviously Bill Rymer’s awesome playing.)

In my opinion, “Option Paralysis” really shows off the song writing talent/abilities of the band. The track “Widower” is a nice example, starting off with a jazz inspired piano intro and slowly morphing into a beautifully catchy hook with some sweet harmonies. By the middle of the song, you are banging your head so hard that your gray matter is oozing out of your ear drums and all over your favorite chair, until you are immediately flung back into a ballroom slow dance. Got to love it! The track “Parasitic Twins” has sort of an eerie and mysterious quality to it ala Gorillaz meets NIN. Fucking Sweet.

I honestly was never a big fan of putting bands into “sub-genres” and I know a lot of people consider DEP a “mathcore” band, but I really think these guys could probably put out an album in just about any genre they choose. Every song keeps you guessing.

In the end “Option Paralysis” is an album no Dillinger fan would be disappointed with. You have all the insanity you could ever need with some polished edges, solid songwriting and production. Overall I think this is a great fourth addition to their catalog.

Also I will always love DEP because I saw them perform a cover of Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” at Irving Plaza in NYC a few years back and that pretty much blew my balls directly the fuck off.

"Option Paralysis" gets this lifeless douche’s seal of approval. 10/10 Horns. (Sorry, I got pretty jacked up off gummy bears and Arizona iced tea while writing this. Hopefully my next review will be more entertaining).

The Living Legend of Duff (Part II)

HU: Jimmy, the cool thing with you is that you have seen all these bands come out, all these records come out and you have seen the scene change to what it is today. With that said, what is the band out there right now, that you can see 20 years from now still doing their thing? I know it’s harder these days because everything is different…

Jimmy: Yeah. Well, the music industry is so different now and it's changing yearly. Basically, it has to be the hard-core motherfuckers that are hanging in there because they love it. Not for money or whatever… I mean records are not really where it's at now. To make money you got to get out there, you got to get on the ground, you got to sell shirts and do whatever else you can do to raise some cash. Who’s going to last? Nowadays? I really couldn't tell you man, you never know who is going to drop out of a band or who is going to lose their chemistry. I mean, I hope to see Amon Amarth still fucking grooving' 20 years from now. And I think they will be. And Behemoth is another of my favorites as you know (Laughter)… It is hard to say, and anything can happen. There are a lot of bands that I want to see keep going, but the stuff that I grew up with personally is going to be extinct eventually…

HU: Right, Right…

Jimmy: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath…

HU: Motorhead…

Jimmy: Yeah, Motorhead… Those guys in 5 years, who knows who's going to be standing of those guys. I hate to say it but that's the fucking reality, so we've to enjoy it while we can. That is why I make it a point to go to every fucking show I can. There is certain urgency because you've got to see them, and any young jack I just try to tell them: “Look man, you got to see these motherfucking bands! You got to see them now because you know what? They won’t be around forever. So get out there”.

HU: You know what band I can see let’s say 5, 10 years down the line? Type O Negative. I can see those guys keep going at it.

Jimmy: Well, I hope so. Not only are they friends of mine, but I really fucking dig the music, and every album has its own kind of vibe to it. And they've got something that is really lacking these days, which is a signature sound. You crank up a Type O Negative song and it is like: “This is Type O Negative!”

HU: Oh yeah…

Jimmy: It is not like: “Who is this?” It's not generic. And their influences are so solid; basically it's Black Sabbath and the Beatles…

HU: Right.

Jimmy: Which is where everybody else has come from. More or less…

HU: Yeah. I mean, honestly Type O Negative is one of the best live bands out there. It is funny because I like the records but when I see them is always like: “Oh my god, this motherfuckers are good!” You know what I mean? No gimmicks, no bullshit, they are amazing musicians, a great band. And as you said, hopefully they will survive. Because it all depends on all the members, the health of all the members, there are so many logistical aspects for it to work. Because they can fall through, it is such a competitive business now more than ever. But hopefully, 5 years from now we’ll be talking and Type O Negative will still be around rocking hard.

Jimmy: Knock on wood bro; I'm knocking on wood right now.

HU: (Laughter).

Jimmy: Those cats, I mean, number one: they are just the coolest and most down to earth dudes that I fucking know personally. What they do sonically is just amazing and it is heavy. It has everything, you know? And also what is amazing to me is that it's done with a sense of humor too. It is not heavy handed like Goth… (Makes depressed sounds).

HU: (Laughter).

Jimmy: They have the best sense of humor around. They can laugh at themselves, they laugh at what they do. And to me, that's what I try to do. I like to think it's done with a sense of humor and its not like: “We are so fucking Metal and…” (Makes tough guy sounds). That type of fucking over the top, trying too hard horseshit, it’s just like: “Ah, good.” Metal is great and Metal is the best thing ever, but also some Metal is hilariously bad and fucking terrible and you've got to have a fucking laugh! And you have to look at all the angles like this. It's everything, you know?

HU: Right. And since we where talking about how hard it is to be in a band and to make it in the music industry. Did you see the Anvil movie: “Anvil! The Story of Anvil”?

Jimmy: Nah, I got to be honest with you, I have not seen it. I was supposed to see it in the theaters and next thing you know it's out of the theaters. I got rid of my TV set as an experiment back in June I guess it was, and just recently bought one. But you know I never watch it anymore. Not even DVD’s or TV. It just seems like such a waste of time to me. I could be reading a book or I could be editing photos. I mean really, anything. It 's wasting my time to watch some stupid fucking TV. Once you get away from that and you rediscover… I mean, people didn't have cable back in the day, so what did you do? You wrote, you read, you found other things that were constructive. So to me TV is such a waste of time and even movies to an extent. I do love documentaries though…

HU: Yeah, that is definitely a big eye opener for anybody who is in the music industry or for any up and coming band. Its worth for them to watch and realize that it is not only having a good song, but that there are so many other elements like management, which is so important to any band and to the scene in general.

Jimmy: Yeah, it is true man. I mean, I give Anvil all the credit in the world for hanging in there and they are lifers. Like you and I are.

HU: Right.

Jimmy: And a select group of people that we know. 10 years from now, if I didn't see you for 10 years. I would run into you, you would still be the same dude. Still head banging. Same with me, you know? And that's rare. So you got to appreciate that when you see people with that kind of dedication. You know, they didn't hang it up, it is not like: “Hey we're not selling platinum, so lets hang it up.” Hey, they're still banging it out; they're hanging in there. And that early stuff… I love it. It is hilarious, it's good, a little dated but it's good. That is part of the charm…

HU: “Metal on Metal”…

Jimmy: Yeah, exactly. If we would crank it up right now, the crowd would start fucking banging their heads. It is dated, but it's also is timeless. People recognize when they hear that fucking opening riff, you know what it is.

HU: And they influenced bands like Metallica, Anthrax… a lot of the bay area bands where influenced by Anvil, which is really cool.

Jimmy: Oh yeah, totally…

HU: Slayer…

Jimmy: Slayer, yeah… a lot of those cats man. And that was one of the good things about Metallica doing that cover record. I heard from a bunch of people that know the bands that were covered, that they got royalty checks with more money than they ever made for their own fucking records. Just for a song on a Metallica record. So that's good, and kids can listen to that and they can go back and rediscover those fucking bands. See what that's all about and that is good man, I like that.

HU: Right, very positive. Since we were talking about how you like reading books. Did you start, or did you get the “I Am Ozzy” book?

Jimmy: Yeah. I read it in one day last week. It was awesome. I was sleeping; the mailman woke me up at 10 o' clock in the morning because I sleep late. (Laughter).

HU: (Laughter).

Jimmy: And I was like: “What the fuck?” After the mailman drops off the package I was like: “Ah, the Ozzy book!” You know, I got it from Amazon. And so I was like: “You know what? I'll just read a couple of chapters.” So it is 10:30, next thing you know it is 2:30 in the afternoon. I was like: “Alright I’ll take a nap.” Took a nap. I woke up and I finished the fucking book. Read it straight through, read the whole fucking book. And I'll tell you, I laugh at movies sometimes or whatever. It's very rare that printed word makes me laugh out loud.

HU: Yeah…

Jimmy: As I was reading the book… more than a few times, I had to put the book down because I was cracking up so fucking hard.

HU: (Laughter).

Jimmy: Just the honesty…

HU: Yeah.

Jimmy: And the shit that he comes up with man. It's just fucking hilarious. He's such an interesting and honest guy. And really, that is what it's all about. There is nothing funnier or better than being honest. And that's what it is. He's not like the Motley Crue book: “The Dirt”. You know: “We fucked this chick and we fucked that chick, or we did that drug.” It's more bragging and kind of posturing. Ozzy is more like: “Look. I did this, I did it because I'm fucked up in the head but I learned my lessons and maybe it's a warning to you.” It doesn't come off as bragging, and he's laying it out there in a very honest way. And that is why I always loved Ozzy, because he is Ozzy, man. He is just a fucking funny motherfucker you know?

HU: Yeah, just as we where saying before, he is the one of those guys that is very Metal without even trying. And he is just himself man.

Jimmy: Exactly. And I mean, he is the godfather. He never wrote the Iommi riffs, or the Randy Rhoads riffs, or even the Zakk Wylde riffs. But he's the guy that's out there jumping around. Getting out all this energy, to get the crowd going crazy. And there's something to be said as well for living the lifestyle, which he most certainly has. Which is part of what makes Metal, Metal! I mean, everything he has fucking done… whether it's him pissing on the Alamo or whatever. I mean, some of the stories in the book… I recommend you go get it. You are just fucking going to crack up because these things happened to him and it's just awesome. And to me that is part of the music. It is the lifestyle and kind of the craziness that goes with it and the mistakes we all make along the way. But it's all about good times man. To me that is what Metal means. It means being a non-conformist, outsider, over the top in every way and all about the good times. And that's it, I mean the best way I can sum it up. And Ozzy is the embodiment of all that. And Black Sabbath is always the number one Metal band; anybody that will tell you different does not what the fuck they are talking about. And if somebody tells me otherwise, then I automatically dismiss them. Sabbath is always number one.

HU: Exactly.

(We get interrupted by Ed, one of Duff’s regulars)

HU: Anyways, before we get out of here, we just mentioned Slayer; I know Kerry King was here at Duff’s watching the Super Bowl last weekend. Did any crazy shit happen that day?

Jimmy: No, you know what? It was relatively low key. I mean Kerry is a huge football fan, so everyone was pretty engrossed in the game. We were just eating and watching the game. You know, for a football fan that's like Christmas… as analogous as you can get with that. So Kerry was just into the game. After the game we just started fucking drinking and doing shots. All the usual stuff and goofing around.

HU: He is a Jager guy right? He loves Jager?

Jimmy: Yeah. Actually, he is into Tequila now. He brought me a bottle of fucking Cuervo, family reserve…

HU: Oh nice…

Jimmy: Yeah… he was like: “Hey, this is the shit!” I go: “Dude, I like Tequila!” But we didn't drink it. I just saved it because he was drinking Vodka mostly. You know, Kerry King is just a fucking straightforward dude. If you talk to him, there is no bullshit. He's a very intelligent guy; he is very honest, straightforward. You know, we hang out with him and say: “Hey man, what was your favorite tour? Or what was it like to open for Judas Priest? Or what was this tour like? What’s your favorite Metal album?” Just being able to pick his brain is awesome and he is a genuinely true Metal head. Through and through, that's all there is to it. And the fact that he flew out here to hang out with us, to be in this environment, was very flattering to me. But also it made sense to me, hey we're just fucking Metal heads and there's no bullshit. It is not like: “Oh, Kerry King is going to be at Duff’s!” He's not going to get hassled or whatever. He is just a bro; he is just a Metal head just like you dude. I am telling you, you meet him and he is the same as you. And that to me is the highest compliment I can give a guy that is in Metal or whatever. He is just a regular guy like me, or you, or anybody else. And we hang out and drink and party. And he can talk about this album or that album, or that tour or that record. And we just had a relatively mellow, just fucking cool time just partying and hanging out. That was it man, it was good man.

HU: And of all places he could have chosen pretty much in the world, he picked Duffs to come watch the fucking game. That’s awesome!

Jimmy: Yeah, he flew across the country too! He took a red eye after he did a signing and that's why he flew to town, just to hang with us basically. Because initially we were suppose to do a party with all bands. Slayer, Testament and even Dave Mustaine was going to be here. You know, because they were supposed to be in town.

HU: Right.

Jimmy: The tour got shitcanned, so I told him: “Dude, don’t worry about it, I'll see you next time you come around”. And he is like: “No, no, I want to come out for the Super Bowl!” And lo and behold he made it happen; he really wanted to be here. And of course we wanted him to be here. I just like hanging out with the guy. He is a good man, he is a good soul, and he is like I said: just a true Metal head. And what else can you say, you know? That's it.

HU: With that said, which is your favorite Slayer song?

Jimmy: Seasons in the Abyss. Yeah, I just like the groove, the build up. I've got a lot of songs I like. But if I had to pick one, that's the one I like. It's epic! I like epic songs, you know? It's like Priest, I would have to say “Victim of Changes”. Maiden, probably “Hallowed be Thy Name”. Sabbath, maybe “Symptom of the Universe”. I like the epics. If I have to pick one song, it's the epics. It's the classics with the riffage and everything else. Yes, I would have to say Seasons.

HU: Domination.

Jimmy: Yeah… (Laughter). Woah yeah!!! (Imitates Dimebag’s voice).

HU: Alright Jimmy, thank you so much my friend!

Jimmy: Yeah, right on bro! My pleasure man! Anytime dude!

HU: Any last words?

Jimmy: I would just like to say, I 'm drinking red wine, I feel pretty fucking good! It's good hanging out with you and all the other Metal heads out here. And if you can hear we have some Black Sabbath cranking in the background. I mean, what's better than this?

HU: Life is good!

Jimmy: Yeah, right on bro! (Laughter).


Jimmy: Oh yeaaayyahh!!! (Imitates Dimebag voice). (Laughter).
