GG Allin

“This ghoulish effigy is a striking representation of GG ALLIN circa 1991. The figure, limited to 2000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall and is made of a lightweight polyresin. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, here GG is accurately sculpted right down to the tattoos, blood, and filth.”

Tesco Vee

“Is there anyone in punk rock that deserves to be so offensively animated, than Tesco Vee of the Meatmen, in this limited edition Throbblehead? This rockin’ figure is limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of a lightweight polyresin. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, here Tesco is accurately sculpted right down to the ABBA pants and clogs.”

Green Day is seriously in danger of being labeled themselves by their previous album title: American Idiots.

The wannabee-punk-band-turned-out-to-be-boy-band have signed a world exclusive deal with media dictator Murdoch‘s Sun newspaper to stream 21st Century Breakdown, the Californian trio’s latest album aptly titled “21st Century Breakdown”.

The Guardian had this to say about it all:

In the title track (American Idiot, ed.) the band mocked the media parade, imploring listeners to “do the propaganda”, to “sing along to the age of paranoia”.

Frank, the guy that makes sure everything actually takes place at ZXZW, likes to go fishing to pass his spare time.

He also plays in one of the most infamous punk bands ever to come out of the Netherlands: The Spades. Apparantly he likes to dress in womensclothing as well. So now he has combined those last two hobbies for our enjoyment: in the Spades music video above. (He is the redhead (for the viewers) on the left side of the stage).

We love it, like we love him… Have a great weekend!
