Born in 2016 from an intuition of Antonio Nespoli, he immediately searches for members with the same desire to play and have fun and immediately finds support from Marco Spezialetti (drummer of GRIM) Giuseppe Di Ridolfo, former guitarist of the local group " Punk-Ducali " and Carmine Astolfi, former vocalist of " Triste Vederti Felice ", then complements the bass alto friend Marco Bosica, replaced by Francesco Crispi, who is the founder at a very young age in the world of punkro.
Marky Ramone, un vero batterista punk rock. Punk out.
He is the only one who continues the legacy of the Ramones, one of the greatest punk bands of all time. Autodidactic, alcoholic, always positioned between fun and self-destruction, Marky Ramone is a brilliant and stainless drummer: for 20 years he was in the Ramones "family", but before he wrote the history of American punk from Dust to Richard Hell.
Stunned by Ringo Starr as a child, he entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: "Clothes aren't enough, you're only a punk rockers if you've led a life as a punk rocker," he always says. Here's the story, between successes and failures, of Marc Steven Bell.
"What punk skirt taught me." Interviewee with Anti-Flagge
For more than twenty years Anti-Flag has been raising the flag of punk Rock, combining an impressive level of song writing with a pure punk ethic of social and political engagement. We talked a lot about socio-political issues, but also about music and how important punk music can be for the new generations.
A few months ago you released an American Fall record that is heavily influenced by the Trump administration but never mentions its name. Empathy for people who are called guilty by the extreme right, by neo-fascists, by Trump and by world leaders like him. I am not an American and have no direct experience of life under Trump, but what we hear and see in the United States is disturbing.
The Trump regimes squeeze the world like a lemon. The internal war in America to maintain control over attention and prevent people from seeing how bad we are is a war that Trump wins. Seeing political punk bands when I was young really inspired me. That'?s what punk rocking taught me.
Tell us about your experiences with Spinefarm Records, which is mostly a metals label, considering that you have worked with other punk labels like Fat Wreck or Epitaph in the past. New type of army commirà president 20 years. The first punk song I ever heard was openly political. We are aware of the fundamental role women played in the punk movement with artists like Siouxsie, Debbie Harry, Poly Styrene etc. at that time.
Come to the VEGANE eggs of your hearts, which are a miracle of science. Anti-Flag Gli garanno in Italia neei perssimi fiorni per Ben Tri date: A few month ago you published a new record, America Fall, which is strongly affected by the Trump admin, but without ever name it. How has the last year of US policy affected your lives and your work?
Our declarations are above all about solidarities. Sensitivity for those who have been excluded from the ultra-right, neo-fascists, Trump and globalists like him as scapegoats and fringe groups. To see and listen to Muslim, transsexual and homosexual people...people of skin colour, woman and others who are the goals of the quest for profits against those who come from this regimes.
You' ve made some collaboration on your latest record. There is a track with Tim Armstrong, and Tom Morello is playing a guitarsolo on Without End. Could you tell us more about it? If you' re a group as long as we are, you have great and gifted boyfriends. It was only the most trusted ones we asked if they should be included and they did it.
It' an interesting tape, what was the concept behind it? It' s about the PTSD specifics that drones and drones cameramen evolve from the kind of battles they see. It' a very sinister theme, so we wanted the tape to mirror it. It is another expansion of the concept of having sympathy for those whom you do not know or cannot possibly comprehend what they are going through, but to awaken consciousness or draw alertness to their struggles and try to help in any way you can.
Well, we wanted to communicate what this White House would be. Benefit before the humans. Maintaining the current situation to keep the richest human beings in the richest countries and the least prosperous human beings in the richest countries. I am not from the USA and have no first-hand experiences with Trump, but what we see and listen to from the USA is outrageous.
Folks talk about the NFL and stand for the NFL as if it's damn important. Cops kill two, almost three men a damn day. That'?s all. Trump regimes squeeze the planets like a citron. Waging internal conflict in America to attract publicity and not allow humans to see how poor things are is one that Trump wins.
What is the importance of having musicans who try to make and affect the young generation with whom they mainly talk? All we can do is talk about ourselves. Watching young punk bands in politics has so much influenced me. In order to find out more about my own intrinsic raceism, sexualism, homophobia as well as persphobia.
That'?s what punk rock was teaching me. Share with us your experiences with Spinefarm Record, which is predominantly a metals record company, and look at your past with other punk record companies like Fat Wreck or Epitaph. We' re more focussed on which record brands can bring our albums to shops around the globe at as fair a price as possible.
A long while ago we learnt that there are crappy guys at big label, crappy guys at indies and diys... you just have to do your best to work with friendly guys who take good art in. We found some nice folks at Spinefarm. Soon a new type of army will be 20 years old.
At that time, what was your aim as a group and how do you really feeling now, because you know that you have been influencing at least two generation of children in music and politics during all those years? We really just wanted to pursue The for the Government with something that represents 4 of us.
This was the first CD to feature Chris Head and I on, it was a big leap to explain what Anti-Flag was and would be. We' re always trying to do the best stuff we can. The New Army was no different. But we had no clue that 20 years later they would see our bands or listen to this one.
This is unbelievable for us. I would like to know what your top 5 top 5 politics are and why. But the first ever shanty I ever listened to turned my whole world around. The first punk track I ever listened to was obviously politically charged. GENERAL DEFINITIONING general definitioning policy tune. Magnificent recording of 77 British riots. It'?s the best politics of our age.
All of us know the important roles that female punk players like Siouxsie, Debbie Harry, Poly Styrene etc. were playing at that time. What do you think about the current situation and the girls who have to do with the politics of politics (with bands like War on Women)? It'?s best if somebody has this discussion.
It' s not about ratings, it' s about saying that females should be included in all aspect of work related to arts and culture, so fucking do it. For every trip we take, we try to ensure that every woman is included. This work seems to pass from allies to partners. However, as 4 pure whites we know that we have a great deal to do to enable gender mainstreaming in our scenes and in our work.
Part of that is that sometimes we shut up. Last but not least, and it's a big one that we all ask: What do you think of balls? Follow Your Heart VEGAN Ei is a science wonder.
