Activist punk’s not dead!
Over at the Runout, Bryne Yancey has a thoughtful piece about the Baltimore band Old Lines–it’s always cool to read actual reported pieces about bands, kind of a rarity on the interwebs these days–and you can stream the Old Lines album. Radness. “One of the many personal definitions of punk is a genre of music where ideas can be freely expressed, where yes, the music is aggressive, but only because the ideas demand aggression. It’s literally the sound about being pissed off about injustice, be it personal or something bigger. That seems to get forgotten more and more.”
P.S. Buddy Jackson’s Thursday nite VFW residency starts this month, I think.
