In Memoriam: Mike Atta (Middle Class) (-2014)

Posted by johng on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Image Mike Atta, guitarist and founding member of seminal first wave Santa Ana punkers, The Middle Class, has passed away. Atta died on Sunday night after suffering for four years with liver cancer. Atta's mark has been indelible on punk rock, as many people claim that The Middle Class were the first hardcore band. Even more claim that the band was extremely influential. After the band broke up in 1982, Atta opened a vintage store called "Out of Vogue," named after a Middle Class song, and ran it until his demise. We send condolences to Atta's family and friends.

New Review Update: April 21, 2014

Posted by johng on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
Image It's John G back again and I'm still getting over the epic rumble that was Record Store Day 2014. I actually didn't pick up too many releases, but what I did pick up was packed with banging tunes. (Joe Strummer and the Pogues! *What What!*) Also, I noticed that there were waaaaay more flipper-scum this year. Did you score any sweet releases? Did you see anyone that bizarrely went straight for both Childish Gambino and Slipknot (and lots of other stuff), and claimed to be ignorant to the fact that they were selling for 10 times sticker value on eBay? Did you key their cars? You naughty child. Here's a cookie.
