To Write Love On Her Arms

Posted Dec. 7, 2014, 4:23 p.m.

Lagwagon were one the first bands that got me into punk rock. Their tracks were my favourite on the Fat Wreck Chords comps, and In the sixth grade I inherited an oversized black hoodie with their symbol on the front, a hand-me-down from my older brother, which I wore nearly every single day for a year and a half. They're one of a handful of bands that defines my early adolescence, serving as a soundtrack for skateboarding, petty vandalism, and my unrequited crushes on older, heavily pierced, girls. When I was asked if I wanted to interview Joey Cape, Lagwagon's lyricist and lead singer, there was a part of me that jumped at the opportunity, and another part ...

Interviews

Amebix

Posted June 6, 2011, 10:16 p.m.

Amebix are a band cloaked with such intrigue and myth that, for a long time, I wasn't sure that they actually existed. Forming in 1978 around the core of brothers Rob and Stig Miller, they released two albums and a handful of 7" singles before disbanding in 1987. They were a band spoken about on the fringes of both the punk and metal scenes, being one of the earliest bands to adopt both styles as their own. In 2009, Amebix came together to collate a history of the band in the form of a documentary style DVD. This served ...
