Today we're starting a new regular weekend feature at Punknews: Collector's Corner! Inspired by an old feature that used to run at Vinyl Collective years ago, Collector's Corner will be a feature that talks to musicians, DJs, label owners, artists, and fans about their record collections. (And by "record," we mean vinyl, CD, tape, etc... we're not prejudiced!)
We kick off the feature with an interview with Dominic Davi! Dominic is a punk rock champion! He started the kick ass pop-punk band Tsunami Bomb and toured with them all over the world. Now, he's a record label don, working on the inside at both Alternative Tentacles and Kung Fu Records! Did you like the last World/Inferno Friendship Society record or the latest Circle Jerks reissue? Dominic had a hand in that. (What must it be like to have both Jello Biafra and Joe Escalante as bosses?!) On top of that, he's got a new band called Crash & Attack who are currently working on their first full length. You can read our interview with Dom about his collection below.

Popular clothing designer Diesel has come up with a way to turn yourself into a fashionable punk and all for the low low price of $648 plus tax. The company has put together a denim work shirt and pant combination covered in fake band patches along with the brand's corporate mottos.
Phrases like "Destroy," "Death Trash," and "Go Wild Anywhere" share space with "Diesel Industry: So Real So Good" and "State of Realz."
