The Year in OFF!
2012 is grinding to a close, and it's not out of the question that you could use a bit of clear-eyed insight into the injustices of the world. Thankfully, Keith, Dmitri, Steven, and Mario of punk rock über-group OFF! have gifted us a handful of videos this year to help us cope with the multitude of abuses on this dangerous, dying sphere. We asked them what 2012 meant to them: here are their answers, except for Mario, who never got back to us:
Keith: "I wouldn't sell this year of the ongoing OFF! adventure for all the gold in Fort Knox!"
Dimitri: "2012: the year punk broke... again."
Steven: "This year with OFF! has been ON the hook... wait, no OFF! the hook... no ON the.... it's been really fucking cool."
Here's a look back at our four favorite OFF! vids, plus scroll down to check their dates and buy tickets to their February tour of the USA. Oh, also you should buy OFF!'s new self-titled record on vinyl or MP3. It makes a great holiday gift for all the sheeple in your life that need to be woke the fuck up.
