[#390] Punk Look Back

McG reflects on listening to his first hardcore punk record by Minor Threat, which leads to a look back on growing up with punk rock in the early- and mid-‘80s. Mike Lenert recalls seeing Mark E. Smith of The Fall destroy the stage at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, and together the two curate killer sets of old school punk with nods from contemporary bands. Bonus track: McG and Mike discuss the career of Pat Welsh, the uncredited voice of E.T.
