We all know how big the shakers made it. I saw them on their 1990 world your not!!!

Billy

Great to see all these bands just before they hit the big time.

Patti Littlefield

Haha wow what a flashback!

So in the '80's Albuquerque was "America's Liverpool??"  ?                                                                                                    

Please give some big news-show-interview props to the one, the only, the legend, the fabulously talented and the incredibly missed Steve D'Coda. He got his start when Albuquerque actually had it's first real music scene. In the middle-late '60's and then into the very early '70's. There were at least 20 or 30 bands in Albuquerque. And some of them were really REALLY good.         There were bands that had players and singers of every kind and color. And that came from every part of the city.
No one SUGGESTED to them, THREATENED them, or FORCED them to be diverse. Diversity was not a thing that even was thought about. Diversity? 
No person in any band in Albuquerque seemed to have an advantage, a disadvantage, or a privilege (imaginary or otherwise) that depended on what their last name was, what color their skin was, or what part of town they were from.                                       Either your band was good, or it wasn't, Either you were popular, or not that much. And either the individuals either had some kind of "something," or they didn't. Those seemed to be the only distinctions.
That is just the way I remember it anyway. The way that it was in Albuquerque....back THEN.  
Not in the '80's. That news segment made things look pretty grim there.
RIP Steve

There were plenty of bands that worked constantly that were not under Buffalino's thumb. I was in two of them (Trouble, and 505). The SOX, Ol' Scratch, Magnetics, and the list goes on. This is pretty funny in retrospect. At least back then there were some signs of life in ABQ.

O so that's why the music scene has sucked my entire life! smfh

Insight Video

Bufalino suppressed a lot of good music, and nearly wrecked the music scene in Albuquerque in the 80's.

Albuquerque has had a thriving music scene since I was a kid, but people trying to make it the traditional ways, by relying on club owners, will eventually fail. Hell, I've never heard of any of these bands. But I can name a couple bands, and bands friends of mine were in that made it huge, like the Shins. Mostly the only real bands making anything of themselves were all DIY punk bands and most of them are still around or helping newer bands.

Richard Ramsey

I have a sassy Jones lp

Charles Landreth

"Your gonna see less and less live bands, it's going to video". Thanks so much for posting this. I think this video explains 100% why Albuquerque never had a real music scene since I've been around.

Mariano Torrez

See? Albuquerque was a cool place at once. This is the town I remember....

Art Lopez

Its a whole different scene, and cluture....maybe things will change..there is a lot of great musicians here,but where to play?

Insight Video

So many great Albuquerque rock bands like Dead Ahead and others avoided The bar scene Bufalino created and a lot of great original music never got heard because of that guy. A real shame.

Anthony Ulibarri

"Blow-Job-A-Lino" that's what people used to call him. Some still do.

Brian Arbenz

If Albuquerque is America's Liverpool, that does that make Joe Bufalino America's Brian Epstein?

Dweezel Younger

There was a huge rock band scene in Albuquerque during the time this report came out with talent like Dead Ahead, Ritual, Mad Dog, John Street Rockets, Off the Wall, and other great rock bands who avoided the bar scene. Real rock music lovers thrived in an underground music scene that was like no other. Albuquerque used to be one heck of a music town, but not anymore. Sad.

Anthony Chavez

Enjoyed it, Thanks. I remember Bill Eisenhood, fondly, weather, and Tom Joles... I was a teacher in Zuni, western NM and then in north east AZ, plus a summer at UNM in Albuquerque. I enjoyed KOB TV . KOB was the only TV channel I could watch, usually: KOB paid to maintain its Relay towers: the signal was relayed from mountain top to mountain top, west to the Navajo Reservation in AZ, where I was a school librarian. I remember ads for "Frontier Ford" too. 'Might still be showing. {The other Albuquerque stations hadn't bothered maintaining their Relays; so didn't reach the Navajo.}
