Posted by johng on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Image A (perhaps) surprising tribute LP is in the works. The album is a tribute to 70's Southern Rock band Black Oak Arkansas. The release is being recorded by Joecephus and The George Jonestown Massacre. However, in addition to Joecephus, there will be contributions from punk musicians including Jeff Clayton of Antiseen, Paul Leary and Jeff Pinkus of Butthole Surfers, Brian Venable of Lucero, Greg Ginn of Black Flag, Bill Davis of Dash Rip Rock, Shooter Jennings, and others.

According to the producers, 100% of the proceeds will go to the "Savior Foundation" which is an organization created for "the prevention of cruelty to animals including education, support, and funding to offset immediate medical expenses and needs for any abused, injured, an or abandoned animal in a critical situation."

More information will be released here.

Interviews: Cory Branan

Posted by xan on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Cory BrananFolk, roots, Americana, singer-songwriter… punk… Any of these descriptions suit Cory Branan. The latter being based more on theoretical aspects. But, consider that he's currently touring with The Gaslight Anthem and Against Me!, you'll realize punk rock isn't just about sound, it's about the ideas behind the music. "Punk music and country music, they're trying to get to something with the least amount of bullshit, and I find that that is the immediate tie between punk, roots and folk music," Branan says in his interview with us. His latest release, No Hit Wonder , signifies the soul of punk, yet in a much different package. A stellar release, No Hit Wonder , asks for repeated listens to full grasp, yet addictively straps you down from the first listen. You can grab it here.

On his tour, he spoke by phone to contributing editor Xan Mandell about touring with Against Me! and The Gaslight Anthem as a folk musician, the process of writing an album and the realities of making a career out of being a solo musician.
