This week’s show is inspired by the middle of the 3 punk documentaries I watched on Sky Arts last Saturday. The first and third focused on punk ‘attitude’ and punk ‘fashion’, but the middle one just had loads of Henry Rollins talking about LA and DC Hardcore from the early 80’s. It is a genre I grew up with and my fondness for it has never dimmed. Things start off with early Rollins and earlier Rollins, early and later Keith Morris and early and later Ian McKaye before pinballing back and forth between LA and DC for the rest of the hour. There are a shedload of short songs and they all kick ass. Tune in for:
For those pedants out there, I know that not all bands are from LA or DC (some are from other parts of California, a couple from NYC and one is actually from fucking Texas!), but you get the picture.
