Napalm Beach

Napalm Beach with Mudhoney and Poison Idea Originally called The Untouchables, Napalm Beach was formed by Chris Newman in 1980 in Portland, Oregon. Sam Henry of the Wipers joined in 1981. Dave Dillinger joined in 1989. Napalm Beach headlined frequently and opened for many national acts in Portland and Seattle all through the 1980s and into the 1990s. Though they never toured the U.S., Napalm Beach toured Europe several times between 1989 and 1992. (click here for a Napalm Beach flyer gallery)

After their set, and the two encore tunes, a magic seems broken in the hall, as if some great sword had been pulled from the stone for a few short minutes and has now been replaced… One of Seattle’s most successful established bands has just been upstaged by some of the poorest, ugliest, and most talented rock n’ rollers in town. Charles Cross, Seattle P.I. August 18, 1981

Napalm Beach recorded and released around a dozen albums on small labels.
