Henry Rollins Band at Theater Of Living Arts in Philadelphia, PA 6-16-03

I would have gone to any benefit gig Rollins did for the West Memphis Three, but the added incentive of The Rollins Band busting out a set of Black Flag songs was great. Jim Lundy and I headed out to this show. I remember being pretty amped up for this one. A lot of friends went and there were many old timers there too. A friend kept pointing out members of old New Jersey and Philadelphia bands, which was cool. I have no idea who opened up. We got into the gig right as the band that was opening wrapped…

Triple Threat

Interview was conducted during March of 2007 by Justin Bragg. Originally, this interview would have been published in Quick Fix Magazine. Photos by Fred Hammer and Brian Froustet. *** JB: Ok, so lets get the formalities out of the way- who is who and what do they play? Tim McMahon – Vocals, Ed McKirdy – Guitar, Jason Jammer – Drums, Tim Kriependorf – bass *** JB: You guys are obviously going for a different style when compared to your previous bands.  Vocally, I noticed you were trying something different as well.   Was this intentional?  I mean, when I first heard…

Black Flag My War LP SST Records 1983 I first heard My War the summer after my first year of college. My War was exactly what I needed at the time; the brutality, the dense often claustrophobic feeling of the record perfectly captured what I was, and still am, feeling at the time. I listened to this record so often that it became a joke amongst my friends whenever they came over I would have this on my turntable. This is a rather influential record. Bands like Eyehategod, The Melvins, and Annihilation Time are greatly influenced by this record. A…

Newz U Can Uze

Holy crap, a lot of Newz U Can Uze After a couple years of work, Bridge Nine Records is going to be putting out the Schism Fanzine book. I have not had originals of the Schism issues in a couple years, so I am excited to check it out again. In sort of Schism related news, Ronny Little has a new interview with Alex Brown up about Schism’s precursor Loveseat. Porcell is now playing guitar for Bold yet again. I am not really a fan, but good luck to those guys. I am looking forward to the Generations compilation on…

Henry Rollins-Live At Luna Park

Henry Rollins Live At Luna Park DVD  The idea for this one was for Henry to appear at Luna Park each Wednesday for a month. Each time he was to present a completely different show and the “best of” would be compiled for this DVD. For a person like Henry who talks for a long time (over three hours last time I saw him!) it would be very interesting to come up with new stuff each week. There is some great stuff on here. Some highlights include-  Henry talks about working on Batman Beyond. His description of older Bruce’s deep…
