During their show at the Northpark Theater in San Diego a few nights ago, The Queers had to literally kick (or I guess you could say shove) their bassist Dangerous Dave off stage after he went on what seemed to be a drunken rampage aimed at destroying the band’s drum kit.
Someone was nice enough to post a video, so you can check that out below (the action starts around the 5:07 mark).
Frontman Joe Queer was quick to dispel any rumors of Dave and The Queers parting ways, posting the following on the band’s Facebook yesterday:
Hey, everyone fucks up. Dangerous Dave will ride again. He just needs a little timeout haha! He apologized so we’re just going to move on. We’re not pulling a Screeching Weasel at SXSW thing where everyone threw Ben under the bus – even a lot of his so-called friends. Friends fuck up and you don’t always agree with what they say or do but they’re still your friends. At least in my book.
The Queers just wrapped up a summer tour with Screeching Weasel and the Mr. T Experience, and they will be announcing another round of shows sometime soon. The band recently released a fully re-recorded version of 2000’s Beyond the Valley… and they plan to do the same with 1998’s Punk Rock Confidential.

They have now made good on half of that promise, as a completely re-recorded Beyond The Valley… has gone up for streaming and can be heard below (unless you don’t have Spotify). LP’s are also available to pre-order on the band’s webstore.
We’ll keep you posted as more details on the Punk Rock Confidential re-recording come to light. For the time being, head over here to see if The Queers are stopping near you on their summer tour with Screeching Weasel and Mr. T Experience.

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.
Today’s cover song comes from The Queers and their rendition of “Unsatisfied,” written by The Replacements. The original version appeared on The Replacements iconic 1984 album, Let It Be, while The Queers recorded their version for the 2006 compilation album, We’ll Inherit the Earth: A Tribute to The Replacements.
You can listen to both versions of “Unsatisfied” below.

This week on Dying Scene Radio, Bob Noxious interviews Joe Queer, guitarist and lead singer of the legendary American punk rock band The Queers on their co-headlining ticket with The Dwarves at BackBooth in Orlando, FL. And Bobby Pickles slurs through his end of this week’s podcast drunk on whiskey.
Dwarves’ frontman Blag Dahlia denies Noxious’ allegations of conspiracy to expel Bobby Pickles from The Bowery Electric on this two-part series concerning “some obscure dude from New York”.
SYNOPSIS OF BANTER
Bobby asks Bob about how he got his start in radio. Bob explains his humble beginnings on a local Pirate Radio Station and growing up the son of a 70’s A.M. Radio “Hot Jock” DJ.
Bobby declares, “pop-anything sucks”, including but not limited to pop-country and pop-hip-hop and pop-punk; he then continues on with a news story about Blink 182. Bob continues to be amazed that the aforementioned band remains seemingly relevant to the patrons of dyingscene.com and quickly dismisses them.
Bob asks Joe Queer why punk rock legends are so much more accessible than the untouchable rock heroes of yesteryear. Joe tells Bob about meeting Joey Ramone and eventually working with him on his solo record. Legendary! (There’s that word again). Later, Blag baba-booeys the interview, asking Joe about “the blow and all that stuff”.
Bob discusses his deep seething hatred of the “emo/kid/bubblegum/pop” bands who are continually signed to Epitaph, explaining further that the only relevant band still left on the label is Bad Religion (not true, see: Rancid, Pennywise, Millencolin, Propagandhi, The Descendents…and the list goes on and on).
Talk turns to all of the different silly names that record labels are naming themselves.
Bobby mentions looking forward to seeing Less Than Jake in New Haven, then gloats that there are no Florida dates for Bob to catch. Bob informs Bobby that LTJ’s frontman, Chris DeMakes, lives in the same Florida city as he, continuing that they play roughly eight local shows per year.
Bobby, once again, invites Bob to New York for a yearly shindig, then accuses him of being “too pushy” when Bob suggests an interview request with NJ hardcore band, Bigwig. Passive-aggressive puns are passed around playfully as Bob chastises Bobby for a slow news week at DyingScene.com when his supposed “jouralist” co-host covers a story about “some dude’s record collection” – Bobby waxing on about Minor Threat’s Filler EP.

When the sun’s out and I’m feeling carefree I love my ska and pop-punk. When I’m feeling nostalgic and wistful I skew towards Menzingers or emo. When I’ve had three cups of coffee and need an outlet for the nebulous discontentment that silently builds behind the exterior of my stoic demeanor I turn towards hardcore-punk. That’s where I’m at this morning so when a request to check out the debut album from Californian skate-punk/hardcore act Facelift hit my inbox it was perfectly timed. This music is raw. It’s fast as hell. And it’s f’ing pissed off. Oh, and it’s riddled with metallic riff breakdowns which absolutely clinched it for me (give it 2:20 into the album opener to see what I mean). Turn up the volume and let off some steam with me by streaming “Sinceforevertilwhenever” here.
