For many, punk is that 3-chord guitar progression with a sped up 4/4 drum beat, raw, angry vocals and lyrics that speak to those questioning the government and seeking a subculture with a movement.
Although that is the case for manyself-proclaimed punk musicians, can the genre not shift in sound with the times? Can bands that speak of personal truths, integrity and stir movements in social uprise not be considered 'punk' even if they lack the token 'punk' sound?
This is what my show is all about. Revealing the many bands within Canada and across the globe that reperesent truth and play their music outside of the box, not molding to any expectatoins or genre barriers.
From Gang of Four, The Noisettes, GBH, Creepshow to local Canadian bands galore such as Red Mass and the Pink Noize, as well as old school hits fom the likes of D.O.A, Discharge, The Avengers, The Damned, Dead Kennedy's... I'm going to prove that in its efforts to represent the voice of truth within the music industry, punk music today defies the token definitions of its genre and throws in a mix of great and at times unexpected sounds.
