DO NOT TALK TO THE COPS

WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
You can be held for what seems like days and possibly be (physically and mentally) abused by the cops, but DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM other than,
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
" I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY"
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

Totentanz photos

Totentanz, Monday August 13th, 1990, opened for.C.O.C.
they were a rock band, sort of in the Danzig vein, with dudes from other previous Toronto metal and hardcore/crossover bands.
Here's some pics from old negatives I printed again. Maybe still have copies of the originals. there were some other pics taken too.
These guys  went onto other bands. maybe became famous. what do I care.
Rick (guitarist) later in  Soulstorm was pretty cool and funny at times.
The bassist here, Mark though, (thought he played guitar?) was also one the coolest dudes, from one of the best ever Toronto-area bands  - Degenerate Youth!
I only learned a month ago he passed away when i wasted some time scrolling through some facebook groups. I rarely visit facecrack anymore, not even with fake accounts. Fuck that site.

Nick Sagias took a lot of the C.O.C pics for me that night too on the same roll of negatives, but I ain't sharing them cuz..what have you done for me lately?

Wish I had the live Totentanz tape still, as I guess they were too lazy to make any rehearsal/demo tapes available ?
the live tape was recorded by a friend of Al's (Nosferatu) and Derek's (Anti-Poser zine) and that guy had hard-on, once he learned Totentanz knew how to play VENOM's Buried Alive, but it wasn't played at this concert ... this semi-sweaty summer gig at the low ceiling dive known as The Apocalypse Club.

PS. Woody from C.O.C was cool.
I was shooting the shit with some dude outside about metal bands, really good conversation,, and the next thing I know he says is he is playing later. Duh! I never seen any pics of C.O.C except on the albums and never seen them play live before...
then when some Quebecois or foreign dude standing there heard he was Woody, the fan flipped out and couldn't stop pestering him, so after a bit, Woody went back inside saying he had to get ready.

First time I realized when fans could be annoying...and for underground metal/crossover!
