[RIOTS OLD AND NEW] Last month, K Records excavated a crucial artifact of Portland music history in the form of Sooner or Later, a collection of all known recordings made by the Neo Boys. In the pre-Satyricon ’70s and early ’80s, the band was, despite the pronoun in its name, Stumptown’s answer to the Raincoats, making smart, bracing, feminist punk with odd angles and an intriguing use of space. That band no longer exists, but its impact can be traced through many of the groups on the bill of this release show and benefit concert, from the surfy bounce of Cold Beat, the solo project of Grass Widow’s Hannah Lew, who contributed liner notes to Sooner or Later; to the garage-y dissonance of rising Portlanders the Ghost Ease; to even Toody Cole, the widely acknowledged grandmother of Portland punk rock, whose first band, the Rats, started up right around the same time as the Neo Boys. Although the Boys have only recently been rediscovered, this show is a reminder that truly great bands can cast a wide shadow, regardless of whether anyone is around to hear them.
