Running on Nothing

Welcome to Running on Nothing, the latest addition to our stable of columns at Scene Point Blank. Running on Nothing offers a look at the world through the eyes of Kole, bassist of The Lippies, who have been working on a new LP for Red Scare Industries. -- I just finished watching a documentary on Amazon about Chris Claremont while sipping on a whiskey and water and reflecting back on how I got into punk rock. It all came down to a fateful day in December of 1987 when I happened upon an issue of the Uncanny X-Men. Issue 224 in particular. I was 12 years-old and that comic forever changed the trajectory of my life. The cover featured a newer ...

Posted July 29, 2013, 4:55 p.m.
