BAND MEMBERS: 
HENRY GARFIELD-LEAD VOCALS (1980-1981)
IVOR HANSON-DRUMS (1981-1981)

SIMON JACOBSEN-DRUMS (1980-1981) 

TODAY WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE DISCHORD(IAN) BAND STATE OF ALERT OR S.O.A.
S.O.A. WAS A BAND THAT CAME OUT OF THE PARADOXICALLY PRIVILEGED GEORGETOWN PUNK SCENE.  WE WILL SEE THEY WERE NOT YOUR STANDARD IMAGE OF PUNK ROCK BUT AS THIS BLOG GOES ON YOU WILL SEE IMAGE IS EVERYTHING AND NOTHING IS STANDARD.  A QUOTE FROM TOM BERRARD FROM THE BOOK AMERICAN HARDCORE TELLS US: "MOST OF THE DC HARDCORE KIDS CAME FROM WELL-OFF FAMILIES. (UNDERSTATED)  THE WHOLE JOKE IN THE MEDIA WAS "GEORGETOWN PUNKS" SINCE THAT WAS ONE OF THE RICHEST PARTS OF TOWN. (ONE OF THE RICHEST PARTS OF A SOVEREIGN CITY STATE!!!)  IT WAS SEEN AS HYPOCRISY, BUT YOU CAN BE UNHAPPY IF YOU HAVE MONEY-ITS NOT OUR MONEY ANYWAY.  WE DIDN'T CARE WHAT THE MEDIA THOUGHT, WE TOOK ON "GEORGETOWN PUNKS" AS A RALLYING CRY.  "FLEX YOUR HEAD" COMES FROM THE WASHINGTON POST (CLICKBAIT ACCORDING TO IAN MACKAYE...OH YEAH, IANS DAD WORKED THERE FOR YEARS)  CALLING US MUSCLEHEADS"- SO WE FLIPPED IT AND SAID, "FLEX YOUR HEAD" OR, "USE YOUR HEAD." WE WERE PROUD OF WHAT WE WERE AND DIDN'T APOLOGIZE FOR THE FACT THAT OUR PARENTS HAD MONEY.(WEALTHY MULTI-GENERATIONAL WASHINGTONIANS) AND LIKE MOST RICH KIDS, IT WAS VERY CLIQUISH.

ENOUGH ABOUT THESE SPOILED BRATS WHO NEED TO REBEL AGAINST SOCIETY GROWING UP IN GEORGETOWN.



  
BACK TO S.O.A...
FIRST WE WILL LOOK AT HENRY GARFIELD AkA HENRY GARFINKEL...OOPS I MEAN ROLLINS... THIS IS A LONG AND TWISTED TALE SO I WILL SKIM THE CREAM AND GIVE YOU THE KURD LATER WHEN WE TALK ABOUT BLACK FLAG AND JOE COLES MURDER...





FAST FORWARD TO ABOUT 25 SECONDS IN FOR A SPECIAL TREAT... HENRY ROLLINS ACTING LIKE ROB  VAN-WINKLE, FOR THE RAPPERS 3RD BASE...  HUH??? 


FROM WIKI:  EARLY LIFE
ROLLINS WAS BORN IN WASHINGTON, D.C., THE ONLY CHILD OF IRIS AND PAUL GARFIELD.  WHEN HE WAS THREE YEARS OLD, HIS PARENTS DIVORCED AND HE WAS RAISED BY HIS MOTHER IN GLOVER PARK, AN AFFLUENT NEIGHBORHOOD OF WASHINGTON.  AS A CHILD AND TEENAGER, ROLLINS WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.  HE SUFFERED FROM DEPRESSION AND LOW SELF-ESTEEM.  IN THE FOURTH GRADE, HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HYPERACTIVITY AND TOOK RITALIN FOR SEVERAL YEARS SO  THAT HE COULD FOCUS DURING SCHOOL.  HE ATTENDED THE BULLIS SCHOOL, AND ALL-MALE PREPARATORY SCHOOL IN POTOMAC, MARYLAND.  ACCORDING TO ROLLINS, THE BULLIS SCHOOL HELPED HIM TO DEVELOP A SENSE OF DISCIPLINE AND A STRONG WORK ETHIC.  IT WAS AT BULLIS THAT HE BEGAN WRITING.  IN 1987, ROLLINS SAID HE HAD NOT SEEN HIS FATHER SINCE HE WAS 18.  

(WE FOUND HIS FATHER DOING WORK AS AN EXPERT WITNESS IN THE FIELD \OF ECONOMICS.  HE OFFERS TESTIMONY PROFESSIONALLY AND HAS WORKED WITH NOTABLES LIKE WALLACE F. LOVEJOY.)

 

HENRYS MOM RAISED HENRY PRIMARILY AND WORKED AT THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION.

SOME OTHER DETAILS THAT EMERGE FROM HENRY'S MOUTH- " I BLINDED A KID IN KINDERGARTEN, STABBED ONE KID IN THE ASS WITH A PENCIL BECAUSE HE BEAT ME TO A TOUCHDOWN.  I REMEMBER WATCHING THE BLOOD SPREAD THROUGH HIS PANTS AND HIM GIVING ME THE STRANGEST LOOK.  I WAS A PIECE OF SHIT."

IT SEEMS HENRY WAS JUST ANOTHER ONE OF THE MANY KIDS TO BE MOLESTED ON THE SOVEREIGN PROPERTY:  

THIS COULD EXPLAIN SOME OF HIS SOCIAL JUSTICE FANATICISM...


SOME MORE DETAILS IN HENRY'S BIO: IN 1981, ROLLINS SUPPORTED HIMSELF BY SCOOPING ICE CREAM AT A HAAGEN-DAZS STORE IN THE WASHINGTON AREA.  ONE NIGHT HE DROVE TO NEW YORK TO CATCH A BLACK FLAG CONCERT.  BY THIS TIME, ROLLINS HAD BECOME GOOD FRIENDS WITH THE BAND MEMBERS.  DURING THE CONCERT, ROLLINS REQUESTED  THE BAND SING "CLOCKED IN," A SONG ABOUT WORK.  THE LEAD SINGER LOOKED AT ROLLINS AND TOLD HIM TO SING IT, SO ROLLINS HOPPED ONSTAGE AND NAILED THE PERFORMANCE.  SOON, THE BAND CALLED AND ASKED IF ROLLINS WANTED TO AUDITION FOR LEAD SINGER; THE CURRENT SINGER WANTED TO SWITCH TO RHYTHM GUITAR.  ROLLINS GOT THE JOB AND JOINED THE BAND AS A ROADIE, LEARNING ITS SONGS BIT BY BIT BEFORE TAKING OVER AS THE FRONT MAN.


IN ADDITION TO SCOOPING TEAMY TONES WITH IAN MACKAYE, HENRY TELLS US ONE OF HIS FIRST JOBS WAS AS A COURIER FOR THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH...




THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH (HIH) IS A BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH FACILITY PRIMARILY LOCATED IN BETHESDA, MARYLAND.  AN AGENCY OF THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, IT IS THE PRIMARY AGENCY OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT RESPONSIBLE FOR BIOMEDICAL AND HEALTH-RELATED RESEARCH.  THE NIH BOTH CONDUCTS ITS OWN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH THROUGH ITS INTRAMURAL RESEARCH PROGRAM (IRP) AND PROVIDES MAJOR BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH FUNDING TO NON-NIH RESEARCH FACILITIES THROUGH ITS EXTRAMURAL RESEARCH PROGRAM.

WITH 1,200 PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATORS AND MORE THAN 4,000 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS IN BASIC, TRANSNATIONAL, AND CLINICAL RESEARCH, THE IRP IS THE LARGEST BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTION IN THE WORLD, WHILE, AS OF 2003, THE EXTRAMURAL ARM PROVIDED 28% OF BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH FUNDING SPENT ANNUALLY IN THE U.S., OR ABOUT US$26.4 BILLION.

THE NIH COMPRISES 27 SEPARATE INSTITUTES AND CENTERS THAT CONDUCT RESEARCH IN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES OF BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE.  THE (IRP) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MANY SCIENTIFIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS INCLUDING THE DISCOVERY OF FLUORIDE TO PREVENT TOOTH DECAY, THE USE OF LITHIUM TO MANAGE BIPOLAR DISORDER, AND THE CREATION OF VACCINES AGAINST HEPATITIS, (HIB), AND HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS (HPV).


HENRY'S ALL GROWED UP NOW AND WORTH MILLIONS.  HE HAS TAKEN WORK ENTERTAINING THE UNITED STATES MILITARY AND REPORTS TO THE UNITED SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS.  



WE WILL COVER HIS TIME IN BLACK FLAG LATER AND DISCUSS HIS LSD USE, THE MURDER OF JOE COLE, AND ANALYZE THE VERY AWKWARD EXISTENCE HE LIVES OUT WHILE ON THE PUBLIC STAGE.   SO HERE'S A TASTE OF HENRY'S LIFETIME ACTOR IMDB PAGE... HE'S QUITE CONVINCING...


IN PART TWO WE GET INTO IVOR HANSON AND THE BLISTERING BLUE BLOOD COURSING THROUGH HIS VEINS...

NINO TEAONEAUX
