White Noise Inferiority

2012/12/27

As my liver knows only too well, it was recently the 10th anniversary of Joe Strummer passing on. One of his legacies was embracing immigrant culture, much to the benefit of popular music ever since.

Not everyone in the punk community saw diversity as a good thing, however. Here’s an interview from the pages of Colorblind, a Chicago fanzine dedicated to stamping out racism. It’s a window into the mindset of Ian Stuart, from the skinhead band Skrewdriver. It also shows a darker side to the punk attitude – instead of channeling anger into creating positive change, it’s an example of exclusion, isolation, and hatred.

It’s also quite sad. The 20th anniversary of  Ian Stuart’s death is next year, but it’s not likely many will be marking the day with any commemoration. I know my liver won’t be.

Here’s an interview with The Flaming Lips in Forced Exposure, shortly after the release of their first LP.

They talk about the local Oklahoma scene, why they started a band, and what’ll happen if Sonic Youth decides to cancel playing a show with them.

 

 

 

 

“We started the band out of boredom.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I think the punk thing definitely turned us on…just play and see what happens. Just do it.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We want to be the next Beatles. The Beatles better watch out because we are gonna kick their ass.”

disaffecting & seditious, were these the 1st punks?

Here’s a phone interview I did for Sound + Noise over the weekend on recent dissent and repression in the Pacific Northwest.

Sound + Noise

In the wake of the recent hearings of  Leah-Lynn Plante and Matt Duran, Sound+Noise has been working with academics and activists to bring this act of government-sponsored political oppression into the scrutiny of the public arena.

It needs to be said, now, that these two individuals are non-violent political activists who have had their basic human rights and freedoms violated by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations. They have each been brought before a Grand Jury (a secret judicial body that privately determines the need to apply formal charges, without the aid or presence of a defense attorney) and now face jail time.

In order to better understand the climate around this issue, Sound+Noise Editor Sam Maroney recently spoke with recent MA History graduate at the UofA Rylan Kafara.

Rylan Kafara is the founder of a blog called The Past Is Unwritten, and teaches a class on the history of punk with the Edmonton…
