livininthe80sc+

If you live in the Bloomington, IN area you won’t want to miss this free event at The Bishop. Author Steven Blush will be in town as part of his current book tour promoting the second edition of his book American Hardcore also in attendance will be a panel of musicians from some phenomenal Midwest Punk and Hardcore bands such as The Gizmos, The Repellents, The Panics, and The Zero Boys (who reissued their seminal album Vicious Circle last year on SC). They’ll be discussing the Midwest’s role in the Hardcore movement of the early 80s and will show clips from both the movie version of American Hardcore and vintage live footage from Zero Boys’ DVD Live at the Pizza Castle 1981. NUVO has a great interview with Steven about this event, which you can check out right HERE. Oh and did I mention that this is FREE??

The Hives Cover Zero Boys’ “Civilizations Dying” at Germany’s Biggest Music Festival

The Hives, best known for their trademark black and white uniforms, blistering live performances, and hits like “Hate to Say I Told You So” and “Main Offender” apparently know their punk history as well. Last weekend they performed at Rock am Ring (Rock in the Ring) and Rock im Park (Rock in the Park) Germany’s largest music festival and one of the world’s largest with over 85,000 people attending this year. The Hives performance was live broadcast on MTV Germany and included a killer cover of Zero Boys’ “Civilizations Dying” from their album Vicious Circle (reissued by Secretly Canadian last year). Check out the video after the jump and see vintage footage of Indiana’s punk legends Zero Boys performing the original at the Pizza Castle in Indianapolis circa 1981.
