Punktendo releases ‘Metroid: Featuring Laura Jane Grace’ video game

You may remember Punktendo (brainchild of Brooklyn animation storyboard artist Jeff Hong) for such punk/Nintendo hybrid games like MI’s AlleyFat Mike’s GolfMilo Fu, and Super Mikey Erg. Punktendo has now graced us with its latest title: Metroid: Featuring Laura Jane Grace. Much like previous titles, the game is a re-imagined Nintendo title (in this case, Metroid) revised to include a punk rocker (if, for whatever reason, you couldn’t figure it out by now the punk rocker in this case is Against Me!‘s Laura Jane Grace) as a playable character.

You can give Metroid: Featuring Laura Jane Grace, and any of the other Punktendo titles, here.

Albums Punk Forgot: Million Dead – ‘Harmony No Harmony’

Albums Punk Forgot is a look back at excellent or important records within our community that, for one reason or another, have been lost or forgotten. It’s a tribute to those bands and releases that deserved to be heard, but maybe for some reason dropped off our radars too soon. We at Dying Scene hope to give these records the credit they deserve.

Today DS writer Robolitious takes a look back at Million Dead’s Harmony No Harmony and its underrated place in post hardcore history. You can read his take on the album below.



Laura Jane Grace announces upcomming memoire “Tranny”

Against Me front-woman Laura Jane Grace has just announced that, in November 15, she will be releasing her memoir Tranny: Confessions Of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout. The book will most likely cover her experiences of gender-dsyphoria, all the while fronting one of the most influential folk-punk groups of all time.

After listening to her interview on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, I’m certain that this will be well worth a read, as her Grace’s life story has been racked with drug-addiction, identity struggles, and anxieties over fame and sincerity. The book is set to be published by Hachette Books, and can be per-ordered on Amazon.

DS Photo Galley: Laura Jane Grace and the Devouring Mothers, Live in Cambridge, MA

I’ve spent the better part of a few consecutive, bleary-eyed days trying to find the right words to encapsulate the experience that was witnessing trailblazing Against Me! bandleader Laura Jane Grace and her Devouring Mothers backing band (AM! drummer Atom Willard and longtime producer/tour manager Marc Jacob Hudson on drums and bass, respectively) take over the Sinclair nightclub in Cambridge, Massachusetts, last week. It would be rather easy, although somewhat cheap from a journalistic standpoint, to bandy about descriptors like “captivating” or “spellbinding” or “haunting” or “cathartic” or “charming,” and each of those words is entirely appropriate, but they don’t really do appropriate justice. Perhaps the best choice would be, in the original, truest sense of the word, “awesome,” as in literally inspiring awe in the eyes of the beholder.

For those unfamiliar with this brief run of shows that are book-ended around a landmark appearance at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, Grace is performing stripped-down versions of Against Me! classics and deeper cuts, with a few noteworthy covers thrown in for good measure (Michael McDonald’s “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near)” being perhaps the most curious, though it certainly fit. Rather than plow through the set in mercurial, anarchic fashion as Against Me! would on a normal night, this evening paid more attention to vibe and atmosphere. You see, Grace is also in the final stages of writing a book, culled primarily from tour journals from the life of her band. As such, the breaks between most songs were peppered with readings from those journals in roughly chronological order, providing occasionally humorous (buying women’s clothing at a local Sears in the early days because nobody shops at Sears), occasionally dark (tales of despair and suicidal ideations abound), frequently captivating insight and context new Against Me! material new and old.

The punk scene has long held obvious attraction for those that felt they were outcasts, or different, or just plain didn’t fit in. And yet, it also has a funny way of eating its own young; of shunning people who are a little “too different,” or “too weird” or “too not normal.” Some of Grace’s journal entries hinted at such things, particularly as she was struggling with early feelings associated with gender identity issues. So perhaps one of the more poignant, and seemingly unscripted, moments of the evening found Grace commenting on how surreal it was to have a  rather diverse cross-section of  500+ punk rockers cheering loudly in support of gender identity issues, shouting “God bless your transsexual heart!” in unison. For those 500+ people in attendance on this night, and I’m assuming on the remaining dates on the brief tour in general, the evening will surely rank as one of those benchmark concert-going moments that most other concerts are held up against.
