St. Louis punk act The Fuck Off And Dies have been around for a while, but they’re new to us here at Dying Scene, so I figured it would be appropriate to post a Band Spotlight story on ’em. If you haven’t heard of the band before, their sound is a perfect blend of melodic, fast, and fun. You can get a feel for what they’re about by giving their brand new EP Young Punks / Old Drunks a listen below.

Jeff Fitzgerald, candidate for U.S. Senate and current Speaker of the Assembly of Wisconsin, briefly caught the attention from the celtic punk community this weekend when he used the Dropkick Murphys/Woody Guthrie anthem “Shipping Up To Boston” as his intro at the state’s Republican Party Convention. The Boston band was less than flattered:
“The stupidity and irony of this is laughable. A Wisconsin Republican U.S. Senate candidate – and crony of anti-Union Gov. Scott Walker – using a Dropkick Murphys song as an intro is like a white supremacist coming out to gangsta rap! Fitzgerald: if you and your staff can’t even figure out your music you might wanna give up on the politics!!!!! We stand beside our Union and Labor brothers and sisters and their families in Wisconsin and all over the U.S!”
(from Dropkick Murphys Facebook page)
The political climate in Wisconsin is currently tense as labor and financial battles (among others) will surface on June 5th with the recall election of Governor Scott Walker (R). The Dropkicks, who have an extended history of being fiercely pro-labor, have spoken out since early 2011 on Walker’s budget, which stripped public employees of their right to collective bargaining. Many other widely-known out-of-state bands like Street Dogs, Laura Grace (Against Me!), Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine) have supported the state’s pro-worker cause and have played local benefit concerts, in addition to local Wisconsin acts like 4 Aspirin Morning and Hellephant.
Fitzgerald has stated that he will no longer be using the song.

Alright, so I guess 4 Aspirin Morning isn’t exactly a new band; they’ve been a household name in Wisconsin ska for a few years now. But with more and more inter-state tour dates and a new EP, the band is again on the rise.
Representing the punker side of third-wave ska, The 4AM throws a lot of horns and a little metal, as well, into their recordings and crazy live performances. They recently released their “Midwest Excess” EP and you can listen to some of those tracks and more over here. Be sure to stay tuned for upcoming tour dates.
