Classic gutter punk from veterans.
When your lead singer, Keith Morris was the frontman and co-founding member for Black Flag, your punk career and aesthetic will most likely come pretty naturally. OFF! are a living example of this statement. Having emerged into the music scene a few years ago as a punk-rock supergroup of sorts, the band has enjoyed success, proving they are naturals when it comes to blending short and sharp songs with the die-hard punk ethos. Guitarist Dimitri Coats took some time out of his day to talk to us about the band's latest release, 'Wasted Years', touring and the living, expanding entity that is punk-rock.
Punk veterans still showing us how it's done.
Hardcore punk buzz band OFF! was founded somewhat accidentally in late 2009 by Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides frontman) and the legendary Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks), while Coats was producing a Circle Jerks record. The realisation that it wasn’t working out led to the formation of this new project, rounded out by Steven McDonald (Redd Kross) and Mario Rubalcaba (Hot Snakes, Rocket From the Crypt). Kill Your Stereo caught up with OFF! guitarist Dimitri Coats to discuss the band's recently released self-titled record and their Big Day Out 2013 side shows...we mean, what side shows?
