Old Man Markley – Stupid Today out May 6th!


Old Man Markley has a brand new 7" called Stupid Today, and it’s coming out May 6th! The title track is described by bassist Joey Balls as “a song about reluctantly riding the relationship roller coaster. Fat Mike coined it our ‘Burt Bacharach song’. I think it’s a compliment?” Continuing the band’s tradition of covers on the flipside of their singles, they tackle NOFX this time. Joey says, “‘Reeko’” is our latest punk rock cover. In the original version, NOFX plays the first half slow and punks up the second half of the tune. We added an intro (very ‘Herojauna’-esque), did the verses fast and end the song slow and folky. There’s another NOFX song paid tribute to within this cover (a cover within a cover), just so NOFX fans really get how much we love NOFX." Artwork for the 7" was created by the talented Chris Shary (Descendents, Snuff) and you can pre-order this nice little record right here and now! Old Man Markley will be on tour in the U.S. this April and May, including Punk Rock Bowling. Check out those dates, and their upcoming Canadian and European runs all right here!

R.I.P. Dave Gregg (1959-2014)

It is with great sadness that we write about the passing of our friend Dave Gregg, former guitarist of The Real McKenzies and the classic lineup of Vancouver punk legends D.O.A. Dave was a true gentleman and a truly unique character. We would like to extend our warmest embrace to his friends, family, and most of all, his longtime partner, Cathy. We will miss him dearly and our NYC shows will never be the same without his billowing, blazing white mane and long leather jacket, keeping watch over the whole affair. Dave Gregg , you will be missed.
