The #punk tshirts of our glorious, long-time-ago youth.
Fred Armisen, as his punk rock character Ian Rubbish, meets Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of the Clash in this @funnyordie clip. Awesome, awesome, awesome. (via Dangerous Minds | ‘Ian Rubbish’ (Fred Armisen) meets The Clash)
2. Just purchased Martin from Los Crudos/Limpwrist’s coffee table book. Money very well spent. #music #punk #books
And then there was an article about The Clash right next to a Viagra ad in @theatlantic. #advertising #punk #health
One more photo I found while moving. 2001? #punk #philly #manthosesideburns
Living In A Dangerous Land - Tim Timebomb and Friends feat. Jesse Michaels (by Tim Timebomb)
So Tim Armstrong’s YouTube account is worth following for the Operation Ivy reunion, folks.
…And here’s a 1978 newspaper ad for punk rock band Sham 69. (via Dangerous Minds | Comic style ad for Sham 69’s ‘If the Kids are United’)
Meet Jahbreaker, the reggae Jawbreaker cover band.
I just saw the excellent documentary Punk Jews, about… yup, you guessed it.
Highly recommended. It isn’t perfect—at times it feels like a series of really cool, short biopics rather than a coherent film—but a fun time was had.
If nothing else, you can learn about Hasidic oi!/hardcore bands and Yiddish guerilla street theatre. Apparently they actually are out there.
ITS A BAD BRAINS CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN.

Some Jon & Exene for your listening pleasure…
Great @SFWeekly article on the future of legendary Berkeley punk venue 924 Gilman. The short story of it is that old-guard 924ers and DIY purists are upset that Gilman now lets major label bands play, no longer screens bands for sexist/homophobic/racist content, charges higher door prices, and no longer gives headlining bands the same cut of the door $$ as opening acts.
I grew up in the hardcore/punk scene and was at 924’s NYC counterpart, ABC No Rio, nearly every weekend when I was a teenager. I was a teenager, well…. a while ago. This article raised a lot of questions for me, not just for music venues, but for institutions. Do institutions have to retain the value system on which they were funded, even when it means going out of business? And what happens if they decide to abandon those values, even if it’s out of pragmatism?
