Rock n’ Roll Hell – Live in Seattle – 1981

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

Originally called the Untouchables, Napalm Beach was formed by Chris Newman in 1980 in Portland, Oregon. Drummer Sam Henry joined in 1981, and bassist Dave Dillinger in 1989. Napalm Beach headlined shows and opened for national acts in Portland and Seattle all through the 1980s and into the 1990s. They toured Europe several times between 1989 and 1992. They recorded and released around a dozen albums on small labels. For a more complete history see “Introducing Napalm Beach” – the 2013 article written by Erika with a lot of help from Chris and others who were there.

Some Napalm Beach albums are available on Bandcamp.
