One of punk rock's longest running bands, the Vibrators emerged from the UK punk scene in 1976 and quickly found themselves sharing the stage with such notable acts as the Sex Pistols. Their initial releases were minor hits in England, and the band was able to weather frequent lineup changes, which started with bassist Pat Collier's exit in 1977, until 1980 when the band called it quits. But, as with most UK punk acts, reformation was in the cards. The original lineup came back together in 1982 and released the LPs Guilty and Alaska 127.

"In a month of raucous shows, the single craziest had to be the Midnight Monster Hop last Saturday at Otto's Shrunken Head. The back room of Otto's is neither spacious nor well ventilated, and the place was packed by the time The Othermen took the stage. The combination of their wild garage sound and onstage energy sucked the crowd right in. Then they took it to the next level: they brought out a pizza. You know how a baseball game gets a lot more interesting when there's a beach ball around? (Or anything else for that matter... "oh look, the moon!") Well, likewise. Any attitude which was left in the room vanished as the crowd passed a large cheese pizza overhead and gobbled up all thirty or so tiny slices (how thoughtful!) while the band played a song called... "Pizza". It was ridiculous, and that made it extra cheese. I mean extra fun."
A lot can be said about Sid "Da Kid". He's been a small staple in the New York Hardcore Punk community for many years. Like most he found his niche spinning the best bands new & old in venues and clubs all over the city, he's stayed true to the roots but always shows respect for the new breed of today.
