Deb Frazin Photo Column—Frankie & the Witch Fingers

This photo of Frankie & The Witch Fingers was snapped on Nov. 8, 2021 at Permanent Records Roadhouse. It was the band’s homecoming show after a long tour, and it was one of the best shows I’ve seen at Permanent Records Roadhouse (so far)! There’s nothing better than seeing a band at the end of […]

Chris Chappell Photo Column—Walter Etc.

On August 13, 2021 Walter Etc. played for around one hundred Seattleites cozied up on blankets in the city’s iconic Gasworks Park. This last summer in Seattle was rough. It felt like we only had several weeks of beautifully sunny Seattle summer before record-breaking heat waves and smoke from nearby wildfires invaded the city.

Oog Bogo has been my new obsession lately. Kevin Boog (of Meatbodies) is the brains behind the band. They’ve released two outstanding EPs (the second EP was mixed and mastered by Ty Segall).

Punk the Capital: DVD

I know, I know, another documentary on DC punk rock. If you think the need for more documentation of the scene is redundant or indulgent, I get it, trust me: in the last ten or so years, books, docs, and podcasts have come out of the woodwork, hashing and rehashing accepted histories, codifying them, often […]

Directions from the Outskirts of Town: Punk Rock Diaries from Nineties North America, By Welly Artcore, 316 pgs.

Tour diaries are usually pretty dull. Sure, there are interesting anecdotes scattered throughout, but since tours lack any kind of narrative structure, the litany of entries can get tedious: “First we went to this town, then we went to the next one,” blah, blah, blah. I wasn’t expecting much from this one, in which Welly […]

Fallopian Rhapsody: The Story of the Lunachicks, By The Lunachicks and Jeanne Fury, 352 pgs.

In 1987, New York City was a lawless land with less-than-zero invested in preserving any trace of childhood innocence. It’s hard enough to imagine growing up there at that time, not to mention being a teenage girl there (“Perverts were everywhere,” according to this book). From these seemingly hostile conditions emerges a group of incredibly […]

Fang, The: Weekend at Medusa’s, By Marc Palm, 70 pgs.

This is the second pocket-sized graphic novel by Marc Palm starring Fang, a monster hunter who also happens to be a vampire. It starts with her getting bit by a snake that sends her on a psychedelic trip. This was possibly a calling card from Medusa, which sets her on a mission of intrigue and […]

Invisible Generation: Rants, Polemics, and Critical Theory against the Planetary Work Machine, By Jason Rodgers, 190 pgs.

A collection of essays steeped in anarchist thought. The personal bent of the writing and layout reminded me a great deal of the Crimethinc line of books distributed by AK Press in the ’90s/’00s. Although this comparison might be anathema to the author considering he skewers those very books in one of the many collage-style […]
