Belgium’s environmentally-conscious punk rock extravaganza, Brakrock Ecofest, has just announced two new headliners for its summer 2019 edition. Joining the bill will be Masked Intruder who will have just released their latest full-length album III, and all-round legends of the scene Pulley. Also included in the line up is Catalan skate punk unit Blowfuse.
Unfortunately, Brakrock has had to announce recently that California speed merchants Pour Habit will no longer be performing due to the band parting ways.
The festival has yet more bands to reveal and this will be happening on May 1st.
You can find out everything you need to know about the 2019 edition of Brakrock Ecofest at the official website where there are also the beginnings of day splits.
It’s America’s favorite pastime, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams and Sandy Koufax. These are some of the more notable names who have shaped America’s game. Baseball is as American as apple pie. Punk rock on the other hand is like pop music’s bastard brother. Joey Ramone, Joe Strummer, Greg Graffin, and Henry Rollins are some of the names that helped shape punk rock. So is it possible that a parallel might be drawn between the high-priced spectacle that is the world of professional sports and the down and out DIY of the punk rock world?
Baseball Punx is out to draw that parallel, while sports doesn’t always find itself embraced in the alternative world of punk music. The comparison’s however that could be drawn between the two are undeniable. Admittedly, million dollar contracts, chartered jets, and luxury motels might be a far cry from tour vans, greasy bars and strangers couches. However underneath all that baseball is among the more progressive pro sports leagues. Embracing LBGTQ players and fans alike baseball has done an admirable job of trying to end the homophobic, macho, misogynistic attitudes that are unfortunately still present in many locker rooms around the world. At the same time baseball doesn’t try to silence the players and fans from voicing their displeasure with the state of politics or the injustices of modern-day America.
Likewise it could be said that it wasn’t long ago the punk rock scene was just as full of homophobic, macho, misogynistic attitudes that make the sports world an uncomfortable place for those with alternative lifestyles. However over the years the punk scene has grown up and become a much more all-inclusive space, while also still being the conscience of America as well as the voice for the voiceless.
The ups and downs of America can be tied to both baseball and punk rock. You may have noticed that punk rock is suddenly making an impact in the music world for the first time since that Bush fella was president, and that’s no coincidence. While the NFL faces criticism for players kneeling for the anthem and the NFL turning it’s back on those players MLB has shown support for players who wish to make a “statement”, and while there is still backlash MLB isn’t blaming those players for decreased ratings.
Having more than ninety years on punk rock baseball has clearly had more time to change with the times. While both have grown and become more inclusive there’s still lot’s of work that needs to be done. But as a person who grew up in the homophobic, macho, misogynistic world of highly competitive sports, my escape from that world was punk rock and I never looked back, but now that I have I’m happy to see that the world of sports is starting to come into the 21st century. Just as I’m happy to go to a punk rock show and see people of all shapes, colours and lifestyles.
Baseball Punx does a great job of drawing the many comparisons I’ve outlined above, it’s a great piece. It’ll make you think, the people and bands in the documentary do a great job of giving us insight into why they enjoy baseball and even love it in some cases, but it also shows us how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go. Do yourself a favor and check it out below and be sure to check out the Baseball Punx website here. Besides how many of you know who Scott Radinsky is and why he’s the most awesome pitcher to have towed the rubber in MLB?

Legendary punk rock band Pulley have released their latest album via Cyber Tracks. No Change In The Weather features ten anthemic tracks and vocalist Scott Radinsky had the following to say about the new record:
“The flame has always been lit. We’ve written new music over the years that we were sitting on… The lack of a label and having to put it out ourselves had slowed things down the last few years but the want to get in the studio was always there.”

While underrated, Maui Sugar Mill Saloon in Tarzana has become a rather noteworthy dive bar in recent years. This San Fernando Valley institution’s minuscule stage has played host to a number of high profile musicians over it’s lifespan including Dave Grohl and GNR’s Slash just to name a few. Veteran skate punks, Pulley were the latest legendary act to perform there and DS staffer AnarchoPunk was there to catch the whole thing! Check out the photo gallery and show review below!
Due for release this Friday (November 18th) via Cyber Tracks, No Change in the Weather will be Pulley’s first studio album in 12 years, since Matters in 2004.

With baseball season winding down, Angels bullpen coach Scott Radinsky has time to focus on his other job – singing for Pulley. The SoCal punk band just announced 3 shows in their own backyard, and will be announcing more dates soon.
See if they’re playing a show near you below.
Pulley last released an EP titled The Long and the Short of It in 2011 through When’s Lunch Records and X-Members Records. Drummer Chris Dalley said the band was working on a new full-length album back in 2014, but nothing has come of that.

So this a thing. Scott Radinsky, the former vocalist for Ten Foot Pole, and current lead vocalist for Pulley, has just been hired by the LA Angels as a bullpen coach. For those unfamiliar with the guy, Radinsky has actually pulled off somewhat of a double life, serving as a pitcher for the Angels for over 11-years, while simultaneously keeping up his career as a punk vocalist. No word yet if this new title will cause him to take time off from his music.

Night three of Punk Rock Bowling proved to have a little something for everyone. When the Mighty Mighty Bosstones announced during their Day 1 set that they would be the special guest at the Bunkhouse, playing Devil’s Night Out in its entirety, I was thoroughly bummed…until I remembered that I had tickets to see Strung Out, Pulley, Avenues, and the one and only 88 Fingers Louie! My husband is from Chicago and grew up on 88 Fingers Louie and we never thought we would be able to see them live; you can only imagine how excited we were the day club shows were announced!
Avenues kicked off the show at the Country Saloon, a venue I end up at every year for one show or another. The guys in this band have a really melodic and fun sound; I am glad we showed up early to catch them. I highly recommend them if you’re looking to discover some new music.
Up next was Pulley. It was obvious that a large majority of the crowd were there (at least in part) to see Pulley. The band killed their set and the crowd was going wild. Pulley has an infectious blend melodic stylings and really puts on an incredible live show. It was also pretty cool to see Sean Sellers from Good Riddance filling in on the drums. Pulley’s show was so awesome that they even came back out to play an encore after the relentless chanting of the crowd begging for one more song. This was only the beginning of the night!
88 Fingers Louie took the stage next, and the energy of the show continued to grow. The band had played a pool party show earlier in the day, but to me, there was something special about seeing them in the club atmosphere, ripping through a set of favorites (including “Blink,” which was the song I had been waiting to hear live ever since I heard they were playing PRB)! Let’s hope this is only the beginning of 88 Fingers Louie playing more shows across the US!
Lastly, the moment many members of the crowd had been waiting for – Strung Out! There is something to be said for Strung Out’s live show – if you have not seen them, do yourself a favor and head to their next show in your town. Wow. On the heels of their latest album, the band crushed their set of new and old songs alike. The Country Saloon erupted as the crowd moshed, danced, and sang along. What a way to close out the second day/third night of PRB 2015!

Chances are, you’ve heard of Southern California punk act Pulley, but you probably haven’t heard of Johnny Hawkins. He just posted a pretty sick instrumental cover of Pulley’s “Insects Destroy,” and you can check it out below.
I wish we had more info on the guy, but we’ll keep you posted.
