    Crucifucks Biography

    The Crucifucks were a hardcore punk rock band from Lansing, MI, USA, formed in 1981 by vocalist Doc Dart. The group was known for Dart's shrill voice, anti-authoritarian lyrics, and extreme antagonism. Unusual for a participant in the mostly youth-orientated hardcore scene, Dart was 28 years old when the band started. The band's original drummer was Steve Shelly, who eventually ended up as the permanent drummer for [a=Sonic Youth]. The Crucifucks first album was recorded by [A=Black Flag] producer [a=Spot] and released on the [a=Dead Kennedys]' label [l=Alternative Tentacles] in 1985. The album, featuring songs like "Cops for Fertilizer" and "Hinkley Had a Vision" (referring to would-be presidential assassin John Hinkley) is hailed in some quarters but was later referred to as an "abomination" by Dart. Dart returned with a different line up and a different sound for 1987's "Wisconsin" but the band was done shortly afterwards. In 1990, Dart released a solo album entitled "Patricia" (named after his therapist) on Alternative Tentacles. In 1996, Dart formed a new band called L.D. Eye and approached his old label about releasing their record. Alternative Tentacles agreed to do so as long as the band called themselves The Crucifucks. That same year, Dart and the label were sued by the Philadelphia chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police and Officer James Whalen over a photo used on the back over of "Our Will Be Done", a 1992 CD compilation of the Crucifucks first two albums. The photo featured Whalen supposedly shot dead next to his cruiser (the scene was staged and used to raise public awareness as part of a contract dispute between the union and Philadelphia in 1986). A judge initially ruled against the label and Dart but the decision was later overturned. Dart put the Crucifucks to rest in 1998. Since then, he has taken to calling himself "26" and no longer likes to say his old band's name, as he has stopped using curse words.

    Band members: Steve Merchant, David W. Breher, Doc Corbin Dart, Nathaniel J. Warren
    Band ex-members: , Steve Shelley, Scott Fagersten, Gus Varner

    Truly abrasive punk rock. The only consistent member was Doc Dart (who later became known as 26, putting out a great CD on Crustacean Records).

    The style morphed over the years, beginning with simple, shotgun punk songs on thier self-titled debut LP which Doc Dart/26 now calls and "abomination" and a "novelty record". The drummer on the first record was Steve Shelly of Sonic Youth fame.

    On Wisconsin, their second record, a more folk/country influence came through, but not in a shitty Against Me! way.

    Doc Dart did two solo records - "Patricia" on Alternative Tentacles, and "Black Tuesday", a self-released tape that's very hard to find a copy of. After that the Crucifucks reformed for the L.D. Eye LP - a slower, even more unique record than S/T and Wisconsin.

    Label - Alternative Tentacles

    Undergound punk record label established in 1979 in San Francisco, California, USA with sublabel/office in London, UK. It was used by the Dead Kennedys for the self-produced single "California Über Alles". After realizing the potential for an independent label, they released records for other bands as well. Dead Kennedys guitarist East Bay Ray and vocalist Jello Biafra formed Alternative Tentacles, but Biafra became the owner in the mid-1980s. Alternative Tentacles no longer owns the rights to Dead Kennedys recordings after a 2000 lawsuit.
