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 ...

Crooked Necks

Posted Feb. 18, 2012, 8 a.m.
