Anonymous writes us with some very cool news. Greg Ginn recently spoke with Mean Street about both the resurrection of SST Records and a possible Black Flag reunion. Check out the full interview here. SST’s first releases in about six years will be Ginn projects like the « semi-urban vibes of Mojack and Confront James, the electronic-based Hor and the straight-ahead punk jams of Fast Gato (with former ALL frontman Scott Reynolds on vocals). »

« Now we have a real solid distributor with Koch and now I feel very optimistic, because not only do we have a good distributor, but they seem to be a really solid company and that’s going real smooth. So we’ll begin releasing a lot of music this year and have quite a lot of activity. It’s real exciting. »

On the pending reunion:
« If we took the greed factor out of it and made it for a larger cause, it could be educational and we could make a bunch of money for a grass-roots cat rescue programs. Then my attitude could be different, since I’ve avoided this for so many years. So now I’m thinking, “Wow, this could be fun.” So right now, we’re putting together a show like that. It’ll be a Black Flag, first four years, thing like that. »

On the band members:
« Well, as you can imagine, people are in different places with different schedules, and I’ve been trying to put this together for the past couple months and we keep running into scheduling conflicts, so it’s kind of up in the air right now. I want to see who would want to sing with us, and all of the first four years’ singers expressed interest, which is Dez [Cadena], Keith [Morris] and Ron [Reyes]. We’re still dealing with scheduling things there, and then we’ll take it from there. »

Je suis pas trop fan de Black flag mais je pense qu’un groupe qui se reforme c’est jamais une trés bonne nouvelle… c’est le meilleur moyen de tuer la legende :wink:


SST Rules!
