Jello Biafra This is super cool. Jello Biafra recently appeared on Fuse.TV in their "Crate Diggers" series. He gives a tour of his massive vinyl collection.

In the collection are albums by OFF!, Heino, and some super obscure records. Biafra also gives us some background about the art of the Dead Kennedys records. Additionally, he talks about his love for the early classics, including Creedence Clearwater Revival, Blue Oyster Cult, Hawkwind, and of course, The Stooges. He also pets his cat.

World/Inferno Friendship Society plan end of tour blowout with Iron Chic

Posted by johng on Friday, April 18, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
World/Inferno Friendship Society Late last night, a black cat creeped into the Punknews office and gave us some inside info about the last show of World/Inferno Friendship Society's latest mini-tour.

The show is on April 19 at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn and Iron Chic will be supporting. According to the band, the show will be special because they'll be playing some songs from their upcoming album, This Packed Funeral, including one song that hasn't yet been released in any form. Additionally, the band will be selling rare releases, including recently re-discovered first pressings of their first album, Bridgewater Astral League as well as Red-Eyed Soul.

Although said black cat didn't make any mention of it, we note that the show conspicuously takes place on Record Store Day and even more conspicuously, is almost exactly 183 days, or one equinox, from the date of the band's annual Hallowmas concert.

Interviews: Dwid Hellion (Psywarfare/Integrity)

Posted by johng on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image In 1993, the Federal Government blasted high volume, cacophonous, screeching noises at a compound in Waco, Texas in order to drive gun toting Branch Davidians out from their barricade. Dwid Hellion heard a clip of those wretched, painful, abject sounds on CNN and thought to himself, "I could do better than that."

Despite also fronting metal legends Integrity, Hellion immediately created the Psywarfare project, a mostly studio affair which found Hellion pushing sound to oppressive extremes for the purpose of selling the recordings to the government to use as psychological weapons against fortified targets. Although Hellion didn't end up making a sale, he continued with Psywarfare and every so few years, massive, bizarre sound recordings would appear in the underground trading circuit.

This Record Store Day, Hellion is releasing The Exotic Sounds of Psywarfare on A389 records, which finds him merging his own dark, ominous sounds with the organic music of the Pacific rim. Recently, features editor John Gentile spoke with Hellion about Psywarfare, the abstract attributes of homemade instruments and "how" to listen to noise music.
