Descendents — the timeless progenitors of pop punk — are one of my all-time favourite bands and I talked to their vocalist/the world’s leading punk-rock biochemist Milo Aukerman for FasterLouder. It was ace. Read it here.

Also: one thing I left out of the article was how much I loved the stark  difference in crowd reaction/behavour in the clip for their ’96 classic “I’m the One”…

… and their new single, “Victim of Me”

Everyone’s a photographer, huh? *Shrug emoji*

(Also: I talked to drummer Bill Stevenson in 2010 about their comeback and his health issues for Beat… what that dude went through was intense.)
