Seems to have escaped me on the day that it hit me but Fools Face's Jim Wirt and Brian Coffman, along with the great drummer Paul Crowder, have teamed up with Dave Philip of the semi-legendary, Automatics. The Automatics were mainstays at The Marquee in London along with The Damned and The Sex Pistols. Now based out of Los Angeles, where all the good punks go to stay (hello Steve Jones and John Lydon), Philip has surrounded himself with one of the best trios in LA. Would love to have The Automatics play The Queen City. Then we could kind of be hip and Paul, Jim, and Brian could play Tommy. Always a plus.
