It runs for 24 minutes and pretty much every one of the 12 songs is about how he hates someone. But, the weird thing is, he seems to be in a really good place right now. Flanagan is one of the architects or maybe the architect of New York hardcore. In the famed Cro-Mags , he forged a new sound with his bass -- a rumbling, heavy-as-hell, bullish charge that hurdled the band ever forward. But, after the band released the seminal The Age of Quarrel album, they fractured and the ill-will between band members became more and more vitriolic.

In fact, it all sort of came to a head in when Flanagan was involved in a conflict and then faced possible criminal charges. Eventually, the rap was dropped and since then, Flanagan seems to have moved on to a better head-space.

Meanwhile, he responded to the whole situation with his new album, the cheekily titled Cro-Mags. So, Punknews spoke with Flanagan about the new LP and his punk rock history. The new album sounds very angry. Where were you at when you wrote it? Were you in a good place? I wrote this around , which is when I had that little incident at Webster Hall, so there was a lot of stuff going on, and most of it was not good. The album sounds angry, it was angry. The other side is that I got to pour all of that into that.

It made for an aggressive album. Does great art require great conflict? I think it can produce it. It has always been like that. I always thought that was sort of the difference between hardcore and metal. I always found that metal was a little more fantasy lyrics, dragon killing and so forth.

We wrote about real life stuff. When this last record was coming together, that was what was going on and what came out of it. I always feel that you are very genuine in your songs. But, is there any downside to opening up so much in your songs? When you share yourself, it comes with a price.

But, what are you going to do? With real art, you have to give a part of yourself. Well, actually, the problem is that I trust too many people. I wrote that song as a reminder to myself. I make the mistake often. It gets me in trouble. I wear my feelings, I wear my heart on my sleeve so to speak. What you see is what you get.

I give too much. Your problem is that you trust too much! Why are you in a better place now? A lot of reasons!

Well, I got married to an amazing woman. When I wrote that album, I had just gotten through that whole shit. I was going to court at the time I was writing those lyrics. There were a lot of personal things going on my life that were taking a toll on me. Not knowing if I was going to wind up in jail for basically defending myself. A lot of people that had been my friends for years were second guessing me and turning their back on me when I need them the most. I got to see who had my back.

It was a cleansing process and I got to see who my friends truly were.

I built a little empire out of some crazy garbage Called the blood of the exploited working class But they've overcome their shyness Now they're calling me Your. Read more...


Is all that unpleasantness and badness now wrapped up and in the past? Things are getting better and better for me. Life is good, man. Things are going so good my next album might sound like the Bee Gees! Because things are going well for you, do you worry about losing the anger that was the magic touch on the recent album? This style is just the way I play. The style of playing is always going to be that kind of intensity.

I listen to a lot of different styles of music. I play a lot of styles of music. But, when it comes time to really play, the only thing that really makes me feel good is that hard, aggressive style of playing that I do. You talk about the people that you are unhappy with on the new album.

Are you worried about any sort of blowback? You gotta put out what you feel. I speak the truth. Everything I said was true. If people want to take it however they take it, so be it. You got into punk rock at 10 or How do you even get to a gig, or get a record, at that age? My mom was always really into music. I have to give her credit. She was, back in the '60s, she was going to shows. It was because of her and my aunt Denise.

My mother was the person who got me the Sex Pistols album, so it was her fault! Tell me about when you first got the Sex Pistols album.

It was a life changer! At that point, I just started getting my hands on anything that I could. You would pick up anything that was even resembling that kind of music -- Ian Dury, Nick Lowe. Anything that was non-mainstream, you would check it out. At that point, you are picking up whatever is coming out. This could be cool! I was a part of the underground music scene in the '70s. When Warhol and the Clash came to town. When the Dead Boys came to town.

Do you have a memory from that day where that famous photo of you, Joe Strummer and Andy Warhol was taken? I remember it like it was yesterday. That picture -- people always make fun of the look on my face. My jaw dropped because I was a kid. That ended up being the picture that went everywhere.

I snuck in because I was friends with the Cramps and it was a great time. They were our friends. They were in town from DC and had no where to be. We invited them out to the house. They were close family friends.

It runs for 24 minutes and pretty much every one of the 12 songs is about how he hates someone.

{REPLACEMENT-(Зайцев.нет)-(web-climat.ru)}High-octane punk bombast wrapped in a vicious metallic riffage, the Cro-Mags weren't only New York's most important hardcore band, they were a way of life. Frighteningly fearless and fatally frenetic, tattooed and down for life, they broke the sonic and cultural barriers in the highly stratified music world. For those of you unfamiliar with underground rock history suffice it to say that every New-Jack corporate punk-metal crossover band owes its musical livelihood to the path blazed by these musical marauders.
