Ben Weasel, the ever lovable frontman for Screeching Weasel, is now crowd-sourcing funds to create a new Screeching Weasel album. Weasel states that the album will be the first part of a two part rock opera and will be called Baby Fat: Act 1. Specifically, he is hoping to raise $27,000.
As to why he is crowd-sourcing, Weasel states:
"Simple: Capitalism is dead in the record industry, at least for us small frys. We're back to the patronage system and you're the modern-day counts, queens and dukes who will decide whether this record ever sees the light of day."

Update: Unfortunately, Tommy Ramone's passing has been confirmed by Ramones management
A legend and icon of punk rock has died. According to Variety and New York Rocker Magazine publisher Andy Schwartz, Tommy Ramone of the Ramones has passed away. The cause of death was related to treatment to cancer of the bile duct.
Tommy Ramone, born Thomas Erdelyi, formed a band with John Cummings (who would become Johnny Ramone) called The Tangerine Puppets when they were both teenagers. After that band dissolved, Cummings formed a new band which would become the Ramones. Tommy was originally supposed to be the manager, but ended up drumming on the band's first three albums before deciding to leave the band as a musician. However, Tommy would continue to serve as a producer and songwriter for the band at various points in their career. Before his passing, Tommy was the last surviving member of the original Ramones.
We had the privilege of speaking with the legendary musician back in 2005.
Punknews sends condolences to Tommy's family and friends. You can click read more to hear Tommy setting the foundation for the beat that would become known as punk rock.
