Featured Album: Gimme Gimme Gimme- Reinterpreting Black Flag

"Gimme Gimme Gimme is an interesting concept: take well-known and much loved noise punk gut blasts from the first five years of Black Flag’s existence (the most fondly thought of period, before Greg Ginn began thinking his music sounded better slower) and translate them into country, surf, blues, and other old timey genres that didn’t show much growth beyond the 1960s. Instead of getting some professional barroom minstrels or some university-trained Generation Y hipsters to do it, the producers of this project knocked on the doors of some SST-era indie figureheads — former band members Dez Cadena, Keith Morris, and Kira Roessler, punk bassist extraordinaire Mike Watt, and long lost Joe Biaza of Saccharine Trust fame. Oh, and for the uber ’80s college rock aficionados and Valley Girlenthusiasts, Peter Case shows up, too."
