Flip Your Wig: An Interview with Hostage Calm's Chris Martin

Flip Your Wig: An Interview with Hostage Calm’s Chris Martin

Taking some time off between tours, Hostage Calm’s Chris Martin took time to answer a few of our questions about what inspired them to spearhead a movement for gay marriage in New York, work with causes outside the LGBT and punk communities, and what nerdy muses they toy with when not playing shows.
Flip Your Wig: Bob Mould's "See a Little Light"

Flip Your Wig: Bob Mould’s “See a Little Light”

The very medium of the autobiography infuriates me. Not quite a memoir, the author retreads his or her life with, at best, a sequential recount of old conflicts culminating in a hazy cloud of experience that condensates into something resembling a worldview. At their worst, they are little more ego-masturbation exercises designed as expensive paperweights....

Flip Your Wig: Hostage Calm "Hostage Calm"

Flip Your Wig: Hostage Calm “Hostage Calm”

It’s hard to explain why you’re a pop-punk fan if you are over the age of 20. Most people have a crystalline memory of Blink-182 running around naked and stop their curiosity there. The genre has as much potential to carry social change, introspection, and power as any other genre, but it’s often lost in...

Flip Your Wig – Hüsker Dü “Zen Arcade”

Look, there’s no way I can be partial or unbiased about this record. It’s my favorite record of all time. It helped me get out of many a dark spell. It opened my ears to music beyond oldies radio and whatever mall punk was being handed over to me by Hot Topic (yes, I had...

Flip Your Wig - Hunx And His Punx "Too Young To Be In Love"

Flip Your Wig – Hunx And His Punx “Too Young To Be In Love”

There is music created by gay people. There is “gay music” that is supposed to be supportive but comes off as pandering. And then there is music so unbelievable and unabashedly gay that it hits you in the face with a g-string filled with glitter. Grab your boas and your booty shorts, it’s about to...

Industry Interview: A Talk With Musician Tom Goss

Industry Interview: A Talk With Musician Tom Goss

A little over a year ago, before I personally joined Gay-Nerds, I was lucky enough one lazy Sunday afternoon to attend a free concert being put on by this guy who was doing a tour for Marriage Equality.  His name was Tom Goss and although I’d never heard of him before, I figured he was...
