PREMIERE: OFF! - Jeffrey Lee Pierce
OFF! is either chalk talk for those born after the 1980s hardcore heyday or a line-up that dreams are made up of for those whose salad days included Black Flag, Circle Jerks and Rocket From The Crypt. Comprised of former members of those bands, as well as Burning Brides means there's a lot of history here. On "Jeffrey Lee Pierce", OFF! frontman Keith Morris sings about the legacy of The Gun Club frontman who died far too young of a brain hemorrhage in 1996. Its melodic brashness can make anyone forget that sometimes punk softens up. Pick up OFF!'s first 7-inch at Vice.
