The History of Punk Playlist #39

2015/09/17

Here’s the History of Punk Playlist on CJSR from 3 August! It was the shortest playlist in our history, because much of the hour was a round table (or round studio) discussion between Blake from The Anatomy Cats, Craig from Wunderbar, and Stacy and Stephanie from Not Enough Fest!

They were there to talk about issues surrounding The Casualties, especially in relation to the impact the band’s visit to Edmonton was having in the music community.

First, the extensive playlist!

1. Borscht (Edmonton) – “BFF” 
2. Banshee (Edmonton) – “A Won’t and a Why Not”

As for the discussion, what little room we had left after so much music, was efficiently utilized to discuss all kinds of important things. Our SuperPanel™ examined The Casualties, the cross-Canada boycott against them, and the impact and ensuing divisions locally. We used this example to discuss wider issues like sexual assault, creating safe spaces, and participating in music scenes. All in all, it was likely the best hour in radio history. Unfortunately, the computer crashed during the show, and the recording was lost. Sorry if you missed it! Luckily, there’s way to stay engaged with this issue.

For instance, you can:

1. Start here: “Guest Post: I Won’t Apologize for Being Assaulted”
2. Check out this Facebook page: “Boycott the Casualties”
3. Use the Google. “No Link Necessary”

In the end, most of the Canadian dates were cancelled (but not at the Vat in Red Deer, unfortunately).

It’s important to stay on top of this, however. For instance, you could, say, be walking into a punk venue in Berlin, like I was last week. Maybe it’s called SO36. And maybe once you walk in, you see this, and think “awesome!”

safe space

Then maybe you need to use the bathroom, and notice a sign walking through the door that says “trans-friendly.” Again, you think “awesome!”

But, then you see this on the wall:

The Casualties are currently on a European tour. If they’re coming to a city near you, and/or you want to speak out, check dates here.
