Off!

What do punk rockers do when their band goes on hiatus after decades of touring and OFF!recording? They start another band, duh. OFF! is a supergroup of punkers who are well known for their roles in some of the most legendary punk and hardcore bands around. Former Circle Jerks/Black Flag singer Keith Morris enlisted long time buddies Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross) and Mario Rubalcaba (Rocket From The Crypt, Earthless) to form OFF! back in 2009. After releasing a self-titled debut in 2012, OFF! is back with their second proper album, Wasted Years (Vice Records), 16 tracks of hard, fast, in-your-face grown man angst. It's the very stuff that punk rock is made of. The entire album is 23 minutes long, reminding us that Keith Morris is still very much a punk rocker with no signs of softening up. You can catch OFF! live with the Descendents at the FOX Theatre in Pomona, CA Sept 28th.    

Dimitri Coats and Mario Rubalcaba did a little digging after their blistering in-store performance at Amoeba Hollywood (watch it here) and they found an eclectic mix of stuff. Mario picks up a copy of '70s Scottish heavy metal band Iron Claw - great for fans of Black Sabbath and early metal music. He keeps it dark and doomy with a vinyl copy of Killed By Death Rock Vol. 1. Dimitri lightens things up with a rare copy of The Best of The Carter Family on LP and a book of photography by Glen E. Friedman. Dimtri also gets his hands on a John Lennon figurine modeled after his character in the Yellow Submarine movie.
