MURPHY'S LAW/THE SCURVY/ARM THE POOR/CAR BOMB DRIVER As crossover thrash was taking root in the New York City punk scene during the mid-'80s, Jimmy Gestapo (the name was a provocative joke, if a bad one) and a rotating cast of crazies were keeping the humor and primal, uncomplicated blast of hardcore's origins alive. By the end of that decade, the group's many pro-pot, pro-party anthems had made it quasi-legendary (and Jimmy G. a High Times cover model), and the band continues to exist almost solely on its dedication to bringing old-school fans a loud, fast, beer-soaked good time. Local bands The Scurvy, Arm The Poor and Car Bomb Driver bring three distinctly different punk-rock personalities, from the gutter to the new school, to the party. (Bourbon Street, New Port Richey)
