Spray painted walls

Happy Wednesday you goobers; hope you're good and ready to inject the latest fix of punk (and punkish!) rock straight into your earholes.

In stark contrast to last week's stroll through (Andrew's) memory lane, today's episode features lots of new tunes, including some bangers from Snuff, Mean Jeans and Agnostic Front, while still showcasing some timeless gems from bands like Deviates, Jay Reatard, Dag Nasty and more. 

So, put on your favorite knee high socks, crack open a fucking schlitz and let's get this party started:

Punk rawk explosion zine teen lyfe

Much like a deadbeat dad, I have abandoned you, my sweet, innocent #WWA children. I have left you hanging for the past couple weeks...but I am here today to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, it is time to man up and provide you your much needed punk (and punkish!) rock nourishment.

This week I take you on a stroll down (certainly not your) memory lane, highlighting some bands I discovered back in the day when I was really into this goofy ass French zine.

Whether it's a gothy drum machine-driven tune from Bérurier Noir, a street punk anthem courtesy of Les Sales Majestés, or some Rites of Spring-inspired melodic hardcore from DC's very own Trial By Fire, this playlist will have you Zidane headbuttin' all day long. So, get out your French/English dictionary, pour yourself a Kronenbourg 1664, and LISTEN NOW:

Liner notes:

  • 2J'ai perdu mes mains by Guerilla Poubelle
