Cro-Mags' John Joseph resumes walking tours

Cro-Mags' John Joseph resumes walking tours

For the past few years, John Joseph of the Cro-Mags has given walking tours where he takes people around NYC and gives them a punk rock focused history of the area. Joseph says, "We will drop by the famous CBGB’s location where The Ramones and so many other legendary punk bands started. We’ll walk by Great Gildersleeves where the Hells Angels regularly ran people over on their motorcycles. Stroll down memory lane at Saint Marks Place passing Trash and Vaudeville (punk store), the Electric Circus where the likes of Bad Brains, Crass, and so many others jammed. All the while telling you my anecdotes and funny stories of the crazy shit I’ve seen go down." Joseph has resumed the tour this summer and you can find more information here.

Dead Milkmen's Rodney Anonymous recording 7th Victim LP

Rodney Anonymous of the The Dead Milkmen recently started an industrial/noise project called 7th Victim. Via twitter, he stated that not only is he working on 7th Victim's debut release, but he's also giving away demos.

He stated via his @rodneyanon twitter account: "Hey, folks. I'll be turning 55 tomorrow. As has been traditional over the last few years, I'll be asking you to donate to a charity. If you do, I'll send you an mp3 of one of the demos for the upcoming 7th Victim album in return. Here's how this works: All you need to do is to donate to either @sophie_charity (The Sophie Lancaster Foundation) or @BetoORourke (Running against Ted "Eddie Munster" Cruz, or any candidate running against Dana Rohrabacher or Devin Nunes and then DM me your email address. Do this and you'll get a free mp3. In fact, I'll send you an mp3 for EACH charity/candidate you donate to (I have tons of demos). Wanna throw a few bucks in @SenBobCasey 's direction? You'll get a free MP3.Please note that donations to Right Wingers will NOT earn you a free MP3 - just the finger. You don't need to send me proof of your donation; we're on the honor system here. Can't afford to donate? Then just spread the word about @sophie_charity and I'll count that as a donation. Thanks and I hope you enjoy the demos."

7th Victim has played a few shows, including opening for Thrill Kill Kult, but has yet to release any recorded tracks.

Skiv: "Wasteman"

Skiv: “Wasteman”

Punknews is proud to debut the new single, "Wasteman," from London/Kentish punk quartet Skiv. The band, which is part of the Southeast London scene centred around the New Cross Inn venue, formed after the dissolution of DROPTHIS and features that band's ex-lead vocalist, as well as members of Cereal box Heroes.

"Wasteman" is one of several stand-alone singles the band plans on releasing over the course of the year, with the intention to have a new EP ready by early 2019. The song features a melodic and catchy sound, but don't let the poppy tunes catch you off-guard, though. The lyrics have a subtle undertone of frustration that permeates throughout the song. The video, produced and directed by VidiVert, follows the story of a sad sack throughout his dreary day, plus plugging instruments into fruit (who knew that would work)!
