July 5th. Our first weekly round-up is taken up with The Adventures of JC. In the last few days, our bold young bassist took his mother-in-law to the zoo (but, according to Fat Col, couldn’t find a cage that could hold her...), and earlier today This Charming Man dropped in at Oi Oi The Shop in Camden. Why? For a special photo session. What for? A huge project. What’s that? Sorry kids, we’d like to tell you but for now, like JC, we’re keeping “mum”. You’ll just have to keep reading the blog...

Dexy’s Midnight Runners are the latest band to hit out at Donald Trump for using their music in his unstoppable re-election campaign. The reaction followed footage of a military band performing Come On Eileen at the start of a campaign rally in front of Mount Rushmore yesterday. Dexy’s tweeted: “Dexys Midnight Runners did not and would not approve our music being played or performed at a Trump rally.” Other stars, ranging from the Stones to Springsteen, have also condemned The Donald for using their hits on the campaign trail. Last night a furious Lord Waistrel refused to comment on reports that Trump’s team have sounded him out about using Gonads songs such as Glorious, Tough & Tasty and Valhallaballoo at his rallies. The Beast tells us “Legally we cannot prevent Donald Trump from blasting out songs, although it’s hard to know what impact Anal Intruder would have in the crucial Mid West swing seats. Besides Gob or Oi Nutter might be more appropriate. However, as a precaution, we have offered his rival Joe Biden free use of Hitler Was An ’Omo. And if that doesn’t discombobulate Donald’s electoral base nothing will.”

And black metal herberts Venom have followed Rancid into the action figure world with a ‘Black Metal’ demon inspired by their influential 1982 album of the same name.

The figure, available from ReAction, is based on the concept given to Super7 by the band’s founding member Cronos. No word yet on the Col doll.
