Alexander Herbert Announces Dates For “What About Tomorrow? An Oral History of Russian Punk From The Soviet Era To Pussy Riot” Book Tour

For many people in the West, knowledge of the punk rock scene in Russia and the former Soviet Union starts and ends with Pussy Riot and maybe Svetlanas and probably Gogol Bordello who are technically from New York. As you should expect, however, a part of the world that has long been ruled by authoritarian regimes of all makes and models has, in fact, been a breeding ground for a turbulent, defiant subculture and spawned several generations of punk rock bands in myriad different, sometimes unconnected, scenes.

Massachusetts native Alexander Herbert spent several years off an on chronicling the Russian punk rock world, and has penned a compelling dissertation as a result. It’s called What About Tomorrow? An Oral History of Russian Punk From The Soviet Era To Pussy Riot, and it’s due out in September through Microcosm Publishing.

You can pre-order the book here – I highly recommend it – and you can head below to find out where Herbert will be speaking and promoting the book near you. His book tour kicks off September 26th in Buffalo, and dates are scheduled through February in Atlanta, with a West Coast swing to follow.



DS Photo Gallery: Roadblock Festival w/Bad Religion, The Menzingers, The Old Firm Casuals and more!

The last weekend in July marked the maiden voyage of a new New England-based punk rock experience. It’s called the Roadblock Festival, and it took place outside at Bold Point Park in East Providence, which serves as Rhode Island’s largest outdoor concert venue and comes complete with views of the Narragansett Bay and the sunset over the state capital. It’s not the best run venue, but my personal feelings about staff communication deficiencies aside, it’s a pretty picturesque place to take in a punk rock show when the weather cooperates. This particular show featured a diverse lineup, food trucks, wrestling, and a late-arriving crowd that allowed show-goers the opportunity to spread out and seek a little shade from the midsummer sun.

For traffic and parking-related reasons, we arrived shortly after our beloved Rebuilder took the stage. They band were playing with a bit of a retooled lineup; with co-frontman Craig Stanton out of town, Sal Ellington and bassist Daniel Carswell were joined by regular drummer Brandon Phillips on guitar and vocals and by Choke Up’s Harley Cox filling in on drums. It was a high-energy, well-received set that was certainly worthy of taking place later in the afternoon. They were followed out of the chute by a back-to-back pair of legendary acts: Cro-Mags and HR from Bad Brains. Technically speaking, the former was “Cro-Mags JM,” the John Joseph/AJ Novello version of the influential NYHC band. HR performed a half-hour set of punk-infused reggae songs with a band that was heavy and airtight in spite of a relative few shows under their collective belts.

Next up came Portland, Maine’s Roseview, a five piece post hardcore band who are, admittedly, not my speed. A band that are my speed, The Old Firm Casuals, came next. Making their first and only New England appearance as a four-piece – lead guitarist Gabe Gavriloff joined in the four-ish years since OFC were last here, the quartet overcame a handful of bizarre, REd Hot Chili Peppers-infused technical difficulties to buzzsaw a way through forty minute set of rock solid street punk rock-and roll. In one of the more interesting musical segues of the day, they were followed by Charly Bliss, the four-piece New York-based band who were wrapping up two successful months of world touring in support of their latest synth-pop-infused release, Young Enough.

The Menzingers played the event’s penultimate set as the sunlit portion of the day’s festivities came to an end. By that point, the bulk of the late-arriving crowd had finally descended upon Bold Point Park, and Philadelphia’s beloved sons were met with a barrage of crowd-surfers and thrown beer cans from the opening tones of their hour-long set. Bad Religion closed out the night in flawless fashion. I’m frequently left in awe that a band that’s been around literally as long as a band as I have as a person (editor’s note: I turn 40 next month) can sound just as vital and important and energetic as ever. This is punk rock, not the Beach Boys or a Grateful Dead cover band (both of whom would occupy this stage in the next week), yet on their recently-released Age Of Unreason full length, and more importantly in their live show, Bad Religion keep showing the rest of us how it’s done.

Death By Fungi (Hardcore, India) Stream Latest EP, “Die In Bombay”

Bombay-based hardcore unit Death By Fungi have a new EP out. It’s called Die In Bombay and features four ruthless tracks – two completely new and two re-recordings of tunes featured on the band’s 2015 self-titled debut.

Band’s guitarist and founding member Vrishank Menon had the following the say about Die In Bombay:

“This EP is our first step forward in finding a sound that’s ours. Frantic, heavy, melodic, whatever we like in music. We’ve written about the violence of growing up in Bombay, where lives are seen as expendable for capital gain. We also remixed and remastered two songs from our first EP because we love those songs and it felt like they don’t get enough love.”

Die In Bombay is currently streaming in full over at PureGrainAudio. Head over and check it out. If you like it, buy it. They’ve also got some beautiful new shirts to accompany the release too. They’ve got a majestic owl on them.
