Episode 17 of Punks in Pubs see’s Liam sit down in a pub in Camden talking to the Punk rock legend, Blag ‘The Ripper’ lead singer and rig master of The Dwarves.
Heads up, If you are easily offended then probably give this one a skip! And yes I know at the start of the podcast I say Episode 16… I blame the heat!
In this episode, you will chat about growing up around Chicago and how Hitchin hicking in the area got Blag into Punk. We talk early shows and the danger that came with the band including tails of guns being pulled and people getting stabbed. In this pod, you will also hear stories of GG Allin, Sub Pop Records and He Who Can Not Be Named. Liam brings up the subject matter of sexism and Blag lets rip at Fat Wreck Chords plus much more.
At the end of the show, I talk a little about the up and coming Rebellion Festival that Punks in Pubs will be at. Tickets are still available, and as always we hand over the end of the podcast to you.
This week band are Celebrity Hangover from Port Stewart; Northern Ireland plays out the show.
