TALKING TO REED DUNLEA ABOUT “THIS IS JERSEY CITY NOT NEW BRUNSWICK”, A LIVE COMPILATION FROM DISTORT JERSEY CITY ON WFMU (+ DONATE TO KEEP WFMU GOING STRONG IN 2014)

Reed Dunlea is a chill dude who hosts the only real punk radio show in NYC, “Distort Jersey City”, on the largest free-form station in America, WFMU. Every year the station has a fundraising marathon to stay on the air, and different shows offer different swag for pledges. DJC offers a compilation of live sessions from the show, and this years, titled “THIS IS JERSEY CITY, NOT NEW BRUNSWICK”, is the sickest one yet, with live cuts from some of the best bands out there right now. I talked to Reed about the comp, what’s been going on at WFMU, and why you should donate.

FIGHT CLUB: THE BEST OF FRIDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN

Following the news of Throwdown’s return at SXSW this year with a Texas vs. NYC event, it seems only appropriate to take a look back at the history of Friday Night Throwdown, and the coverage we’ve had of it here on Superchief over the years. For the uninitiated; Friday Night Throwdown wasn’t just NYC’s best underground boxing event, it was NYC’s best underground party.

“SORRY ABOUT THE BLOOD ON THE WALLS.” When New York’s legendary cult of rage, Missing Foundation, played in the WFMU studios in 1986, they didn’t destroy the place or set any fires, but you can bet that it was nothing short of complete and utter mayhem. Watch it in full, right here.

HIGH ON HUNGER: JANE CHARDIET

“High on Hunger” is Jane Chardiet’s new zine, featuring personal essay, photography and interviews with 12 artists, including some of our favorites, about their 2013 and their artistic goals in the new year, along with photographs of each licking fire. It’s good stuff, so I asked Jane about her 2013, because turnabout’s fair play and that’s how the game works.

12 O’ CLOCK BOYS (BALTIMORE STREETBIKE REALNESS)

Whatever your city is doing, what the homies out in B-More are doing is 10x as crazy. 12 O’ Clock Boys is one of the hardest movies we’ve seen in a long time, hands down, exploring a city and a culture that just doesn’t give a fuck (and featuring Baltimore himies like Schwarz on the soundtrack) the film gets more done in it’s 75 minutes than most documentaries do in twice that.

THE FERAL SPIRIT OF KING VINCE

King Vince is a gangster of love, an all-loving flower child hippiethug in the truest sense of the word. He’s a poet in the rap game, and a rapper in the poetry game. His past and current place of living are mostly a mystery, something he keeps away from the public; his soundcloud bio only reads, “King Vince is a feral spirit who cut his teeth in NYC.” Some say he’s a punk street kid, some say he’s an occultist, some say he’s an actor; it’s hard to nail down exactly who King Vince is.

THERE IS A TINY LEG A QUARTER OF AN INCH BELOW YOUR TENTH RIB.

“Although Tiny Leg’s sound owes much of it’s inspiration to the Oakland glucose and thumbtrack scenes of the mid-nineties, and has been called by HotFridge magazine ‘a thumbcore homage to the sound of Velvet Curtis and Taco’ and ‘a slick-stale, neo-juicy, post-hipster alchemy, somewhere in between gluke-wave and puke-base’ by PeckerwoodsToday, those sentences are too journalistic and not souague enough, if one may permit my french.”
