Exclusive Videos: Los Seis Pistos: “Punk Will Never Die”

Posted by johng on Monday, May 25, 2015 at 11:00 AM (EDT)
Image Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Los Seis Pistos. Based out of Chihuahua, Mexico, the band has made a name for themselves by blending together the different aspects of first wave punk. There's a little Ramones-core here, a little Clash worship there, some straight up rock n' roll over yonder, and of course, a few nods to another band that might have ripped of this band's name. But, when all of that is filtered through this unique cultural perspective, the band is something elese, entirely.

The track is off the album of the same name, out now. You can hear the new single, below.

A lot of punks and punx have differing views on this day, so I'll just say this: Do something nice for someone today who deserves it and spend a few moments remembering someone who passed away for the greater good. Anyways, we're on a reduced schedule today and we'll have just a few news stories. We also have four new live reviews today, that you can check out. See you tomorrow!

Punknews Podcast: Episode 249

Posted by adam on Sunday, May 24, 2015 at 9:15 PM (EDT)
Podcast Episode 249 of the Punknews Podcast is packed with both stories and participants. John Gentile in Philadelphia is joined this week by Adam Eisenberg in Florida, Ricky Frankel out in L.A. and Greg Simpson somewhere in a midwestern cornfield. We of course kick this week off with some feedback mail from last week's big Ben Weasel fuss, and the show is capped with an interview with organizer of Amnesia Rock Fest in Montebello, Quebec. In between we bat around stories about the Fest, BMG buying Rise Records, Joy Division, Public Image Ltd, Green Day, Bad Brains, PEARS and more.

This episode features music from Tau Cross, Ceremony and The Scandals.

Collector's Corner: Adam Eisenberg

Posted by johng on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
Image Today, Collector's Corner returns and we focus on one of our own: Adam Eisenberg! At the 'org, Adam E serves as copy editor, combing over every single letter to make sure everything is up to Blue Book standards. He also edits reviews on Tuesday and Thursday and is a regular podcast panelist. He is also a mega Public Image Limited fan and was hip to Downtown Boys before pretty much everyone else. What I am saying is that he often discovers cool bands early on, and then the rest of us hear what he likes and act like we were down from day one when really the last "new" band we knew about was GBH.

You can see Adam E's segment below.

Do YOU want to be featured in Collector's Corner? E-mail JohnG@punknews.org

We discuss at great length and with much tunage, the career of Davey VonBohlen of The Promise Ring, Maritime and Cap'n Jazz. Somehow Scott brings up Reel Big Fish three times.
