PORTLAND WRESTLING INTRO (1980's) There's a billion videos of Portland Wrestling out there. Another galaxy too big to explore. R.I.P Dutch Savage
SMEGMA are legends and these videos capture the vibe of Portland very well. Hard to believe this but all the times I saw SMEGMA play in the 80s there was countless middle fingers pointed at them. Yet they still played as if they didn't care. Smegma is punker than punk! The cockroaches of Portland that cannot be killed. I heart SMEGMA!
