Black Flag is a hardcore punk band formed in 1976 under the name Panic. The band is noted as one of the first hardcore punk bands, as well as being among the first punk bands to incorporate elements of heavy metal.

The band changed their name from Panic to Black Flag in 1978, the name being suggested by founder Greg Ginn's brother Raymond Pettibon. Pettibon suggested that "If a white flag means surrender, a black flag represents anarchy."

The band had many vocalists before then-fan Henry Rollins joined as vocalist in 1981. Rollins was the band's longest-time vocalist, being in the band until Black Flag broke up in 1986.

After the band's debut album, Damaged, the band began to take a lot of influence from heavy metal bands such as Black Sabbath. Their second album, My War, shows a mixture of hardcore punk and Sabbath-esque doom metal. This led to the

BLACK FLAG The Process of Weeding Out

EP · 1985 · Non-Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Aptly named indeed, since this EP is very much one of those releases which divides Black Flag fans into two camps - generally (and simplistically) speaking, we're talking those who thought that Black Flag got worse and worse the more they drifted from their original hardcore style, and those who enthusiastically embraced late Flag's post-hardcore experiments. These four instrumentals establish two things. The first is that, much as the Minutemen had been demonstrating in their own way for years, mashing up jazz influences and a hardcore punk attitude is big and clever. The second is that Greg Ginn is a damn fine guitarist.

Depending on whether that sounds unutterably naval-gazey or absolutely fascinating, you probably already know which faction of listeners you fall into here - but that doesn't make the EP redundant, because as well as providing an acid test for who really enjoys a fat slice of experimentation with their hardcore, it's also a nifty little listen in its own right, and perhaps the one Black Flag release where they follow this particular direction with the most purity and consistency.

Recorded a year after the solid Live '84 release, this finds Black Flag in a downright odd mood. At points they slide into the macho cock rock posturing and bravado (the title itself refers to a sleazy dick joke) which they'd previously always seemed to have been satirising, but which here they seem to outright embrace. There's an honest to goodness drum solo at one point. Perhaps the somewhat second-tier song selection is to blame - aside from a few classics, most of the songs here consist of less favoured Black Flag songs (Live '84 having hoovered up the best of their repertoire) and the Loose Nut era not exactly being their smartest.

Warthur
An extensive live document of the Black Flag tour falling after the sessions that capped off Family Man and yielded Slip It In on the one hand, and prior to the sessions that would produce In My Head, Loose Nut, and The Process of Weeding Out on the other. Sound quality is not exceptional, which may perhaps have contributed to making this a cassette-only release in its original incarnation, but the song selection is decent, with a range of material from recent or soon-to-be recorded albums with just a few Damaged-era tracks sprinkled in to keep the fans of that period happy. Not a classic, but worth it if you are fond of this period of Black Flag's development.

BLACK FLAG Loose Nut

Warthur
Another fruit of the March 1985 sessions which rounded out In My Head and also yielded The Process of Weeding Out, Loose Nut finds Black Flag in a somewhat more accessible mode than the avant-hardcore of the former or the jazz experimentation of the latter. Essentially a concept album about being horny and frustrated (the guitar tone at points seems to point in the direction of the noisy experiments of Big Black's Songs About Fucking), it's a much more straight-ahead and accessible album than any Black Flag had released since Damaged - which isn't to say that the skewed, oddball direction that they'd taken since then isn't reflected, just that it isn't quite as much at centre stage. It's a lot of fun, but suggests that Black Flag broke up at the last time - after spending so long blazing a trail through uncharted territory, it wouldn't have been fun to watch Black Flag continue in this direction for much longer.

BLACK FLAG In My Head

Album · 1985 · Hardcore Punk
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Much of In My Head was actually recorded before the preceding album, Loose Nut. In My Head was recorded in sessions spanning from October 1984 to March 1985, Loose Nut was recorded as part of the March 1985 sessions along with The Process of Weeding Out EP, and some tracks from the cassette and CD versions of this album that later got an independent release as the I Can See You EP. However, In My Head was held back from release a little - partly because apparently Greg Ginn was contemplating releasing it as his first solo album, before the decision was made to just make it another Black Flag release.

So, what to make of the penultimate recorded and final released Black Flag album? (Let us not be fooled by the soulless cash-in which is "What the...?") Well, it's pretty much Slip It In Part 2, with the various unusual influences that Slip It In worked on incorporating into their baseline hardcore punk style further honed, and a decidedly Minutemen-esque sense of off-kilter experimentation continuing. It's somewhat more successful than Slip It In too - it doesn't have any missteps on the level of Rat's Eyes, for instance - making it perhaps the best album of Black Flag's experimental phase, just as Damaged was their best pure hardcore album and My War was their best proto-sludge/doom album.
