On today’s episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless (6:00pm-8:00pm), Minneapolis crust bastards KONTRASEKT will be live in the Rad-Val studios! This band is on a full US tour, bringing their aggressive hardcore brand of crust punk to the masses while leaving each city they play in flames. Front man BOB DK, who’s also done time in mid-west punk legends URBAN DK & DESPITE has been an integral part of the Wisconsin & Minneapolis punk community for decades. This guy has played in numerous bands, set up shows, housed & fed touring bands and been a real stand up supporter of his regions vibrant punx community. This guy is one of my personal heroes and somebody I am honored to call a friend. We’ve been trying to schedule an interview for almost two years now and the day has come, tune in for his wise words and wit, along with his bandmates. We will be playing some KONTRASEKT as well! Actually I did interview Bob about 15 years ago in one of the fan zines I used to put out in the 90’s called Selfish Satan. This interview was when Bob was in DESPITE, who had put out one of my Top 15 albums of all time; DESPITE- The Destroyers Will Be Destroyed (Six Weeks Records) around that time and was touring the West Coast, playing venues like the legendary Gilman Street Project. Many years have passed but things haven’t changed too drastically; Bob is still playing crusty music and touring. Be sure to catch KONTRASEKT when they hit your town and if you’re in the Bay Area, KONTRASEKT is playing two shows, one on each side of the bridge; Tonight at The Knockout in The Mission of San Francisco (with Australia’s KROMOSOME) and Friday at The Pink String in Oakland (with BEDRUCKEN & BLOWN TO BITS). As usual the hardcore/punk/metal will be spun, tune in for the music/stay for the chaos.
