Turned Out A Punk

Damian Abraham has been many things... the singer of a critically acclaimed band, a failed VJ and food network host, one of the minds behind TV's "The Wrestlers", parent of 3... and undeniably, a punk music obsessive. Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from various walks of life to find out how their world was influenced and changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK!



Episode 323 - Loren Molinare (The Dogs, Attack, Little Caesar)

Get ready for the greatest Rock & Roll story never told! Today on the show, Damian is joined by LOREN MOLINARE from The Dogs! Famous amongst punk collectors for their obscure & awesome records, The Dogs’ career is far more interesting & storied than any of the more well known counter parts. Listen in as Damian discusses one of the most fascinating careers in music with the guy who lived it. From playing with the likes of the MC5, Kiss & Van Halen to drinking with Bon Scott to clowning Sid Vicious on stage to teaching the Ramones how to dress to inspiring Black Flag to play: THIS IS ONE NOT TO BE MISSED!!!!!
