OFF! played Generation Records

OFF! was at Generation Records in New York City on October 22 to promote their debut 7″ featuring 4 tracks of smoldering hardcore punk. OFF! features the insane and always energetic former lead singer of Black Flag and Circle Jerks, Keith Morris along with Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides) and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless, Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes). The well behaved crowd packed in the basement of Generation Records and surprisingly nobody started any circle pits. The band was phenomenal and Keith’s vocals were amazing. Keith shared stories with the crowd in between songs including one involving his favorite Black Flag member, Robo and the Colombian Cartel! A highlight from the fast and furious set of songs was “Jeffrey Lee Pierce” a song about the lead singer of the Gun Club who passed away in 1996. He and Keith were best friends and were about to start a band together before he died. The energy in the room was definitely inspiring. Go see OFF! when they come to your town and pick up the new single on Vice Records. The cover and poster that comes with it features some really cool art by Raymond Pettibon. Shout out to Glen E. Friedman who was also at the in store snapping pics of the event. Google him if you don’ know who he is…the dude has been taking photos and documenting the punk, hip hop and skateboard scenes since way back. Set list: black thoughts, darkness, i don’t belong, poison city, now i’m pissed!, full of shit, sexy capitalists, killing away, jeffrey lee pierce, crawl, rat trap, blast, panic attack and upside down.
