Punk Rock: Mewling Kittens or Chainsaw Jugglers

Wow, I'm lazy. With the lockout in full swing I can't say I've felt all that motivated to get back into blogging, music or otherwise. Anyways, the following post has been kicking around in my head for weeks now so I'd thought I'd throw out into ever gentle pools of UTP.
A few weeks back I made a terrible mistake. While reading some news article or another on Punknews.org I sunk down to the comments section and floundered about in the questionable content that often swirls in frightening Internet eddies formed in the info streams of the .Org. One particular comment caught my attention that day. A reader of the site remarked that the problem with modern punk music is that is simply is not the dangerous music that it once was. I found the statement intriguing and since then I have been tossing it back and forth in my mind in attempt to gain a really thorough understanding of how I feel danger relates to modern punk rock music.

We've got Olympic Fever as this week Matt Baldwin from the great podcast Matt & Mondo's Punk Rock Power Hour(as well as working on Complete Control Radio/SideOneDummy Records) is our guest co-host this week. We talk about twitter spoilers, Wayne Gretzky, and no show would be complete without some Mighty Ducks Trilogy talk. 

With Rick Nash and Shea Weber off the table, focus now moves on to Shane Doan and his apparent brazen dealings with the Phoenix Coyotes and the NHL. 

We also discuss the unfortunate news in the punk community as No Use For A Name's Tony Sly passed away earlier this week. We talk about NUFAN's place in punk rock and the outpouring of remembrance for Tony from across the many different walks of punk culture.

Your move, St. Louis Blues.



This week we don our black veils, not in honor of the new Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings, but because the crushing melancholy of the off-season has officially crept upon us. Just kidding, this week we discuss what possible impact the original sunbelt franchise winning a Cup might have on hockey in California. Also, we discuss tinfoil hat-wearing fans, certain writers who love nothing more than to rain on hockey's parade, L.A. punk rock, AND America. No guest this week so it's just Peter and I rambling on.

Music Featured This Week:

(The Intro was) Coup D'etat by The Circle Jerks

New Dark Ages by Bad Religion

Devil's Dance Floor by Flogging Molly

Rise Above by Black Flag

I'm Not A Punk by Descendents
