Punk's not dead..

..apparently. It's alive and well in G-man's world for sure. He's taking the Sid Vicious look to some kind of disco party. This is his look pre-accessorising..

He looks a little bit more dance troupe here but I accompanied him on an accessory trip which furnished him with a padlock and chain. I left before the hair gel and fake blood was picked up which will finish roughening up the look. Punk was alive and kicking for me last night too. I caught the Wonk Unit lads keeping it real in Kings Cross..

The Mighty Cougar gave it his all last night. Sans instrument he smashed it, dance moves, wobbly legs, poetry. Pure VFM. The crowd was loving it and the venue was a good one. With no stage and the Wonk at crowd level it was easy for the Cougar to roam around as he pleased. There was a good level of banter, top notch. It seems to have been a week for seeing friends perform live music. We caught Brennan AKA Worthless on wednesday at the Slam night. Here's a picture from Callow cam. Better late than never..

Looks like two guys having a chat. That's what it was. Worthless and Chad Powerz starting one of the new tracks with a little conversation. Brennan put on a good show and Oliver Sudden joined him at points as well as Powerz. Old favourites and a bunch of new stuff too. Opening with "The Business" was a power move. You weren't there? You want to hear the set? Jackson wacked it up on his site for you. Click the link below to hear it. Parental discretion advised...

Two gigs in a week is always decent and it's nice when it's your friends you're going to see. We had a good although brief visit from Oliver Barton yesterday. Sick to see him on home turf before heading off to the States. Another friend missing to sunnier climes is Ben Dominguez. He's testing his survival kit in the Outback in between shifts at Gant. Another gem from Callow cam is this footage of Ben executing one of his good ideas ...

Antics like this are sorely missed. I'm going to finish off this punk post with a quote...

“A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy!”-Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day)
