DUH New Jersey punk rock band


New Jersey yielded some great hardcore, Thrash and punk bands in the 80's. One of them was a band called DUH with ties to Westfield, NJ which featured drummer Ben Forgash and guys from Rutgers( think one was named was just "J"?) I can't remember exactly. Anyway, I'm not even sure that this 11 song record was called Trout (I made that shit up but it seems appropriate). Whatever the case here are 11 tracks I made from a cassette I had of their full length demo lp. I saw them play a few times in high-school and I always thought they were sort of goofy and sometimes akin to the philly band that did bitch' camero. These guys wrote songs and goofed very sarcastically about fishing, Apex tech and Quick Chek (making fun of jersey maulers chicks with lots of hair spray). Your normal white suburban textbook theme i guess looking back at the songs now.

Here is a new documentary. It has some great old footage about City Gardens in Trenton, NJ. It's about 80's Trenton punk kids growing up.
