We interrupt our salute to punk rock guitar heroes to tell you about a FREE show in NYC tomorrow night, starring some punk rockers from the Second Coming of Punk (that would be 1984 onwards... right after The Golden Age of Punk, which was, according to me, 1976 - 1980). These guys have been Raunch Hands, Coy Dogs, Star Spangles...
Without further ago...from the horse's mouth... (and that horse would be the mighty Mike Edison, a Raunch Hand... the Rocket Train conductor....)
