Belfast punk legends Stiff Little Fingers will go back but embrace change

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 12:25:37 GMT

Nobody is the same person they were when that first wave of U.K. punk made it to the grainy shores of this prairie town four decades ago: not the bands, not the fans. Which is why although it will likely be an older, greyer, slower and, presumably, wiser crowd in front of and on the stage during Belfast's mighty Stiff Little Fingers gig Friday at the Marquee Beer Market and Stage, there will undoubtedly be an energy in the room that will roll everyone back - helped in part by the fact that this is their first ever time washing up on the city's landlocked shores.

'London Town': London's calling in coming-of-age tale...

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 19:53:45 GMT

CLEVELAND, Ohio - It's telling that the credits of "London Town" list Jonathan Rhys Meyers as playing Joe Strummer - then just group the others in the seminal British punk act The Clash together as "band members." "London Town" is about The Clash, but it's really not.

Whither Matthew a " and you, too?

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 12:44:39 GMT

That's not nearly as extended a lucky break as we got before last year's dreaded "thousand year flood." But it is long enough to know that if Matthew socks it to us this weekend , and we go another 27 years and two weeks until enduring our next direct hurricane hit, it won't come until 2043. Yet while hurricanes don't come our way very often, they usually give us at least one good scare each year.

Sentimentality and the Clash don't mix in English drama 'London Town'

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 02:08:31 GMT

Feeling warm and fuzzy about the early days of punk may sound like an iffy proposition, but that's the sentiment "London Town" is after, crammed as it is with an unusual mix of Clash songs, coming-of-age sweetness and a lesson about personal responsibility. Shay , a 14-going-on-15 boy with an absent hippie mom living in a squat and an injured double-shift-working dad in the hospital, trades his bell bottoms and piano training for an education in leather jackets, angry guitars and late '70s, pre-Thatcher political consciousness.

The Extroverts are back in a big, big way

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:12:42 GMT

After decades of DIY ethics and corporate defiance, punk rock music is still as relevant and powerful today as it was when it made its shocking debut in the late 1970s. Although the days of the Sex Pistols giving an obscenity filled television interview or The Clash loudly demanding social change are now long gone, the heart of the genre continues to beat stronger year after year.
