With intentional hackeyed banality, former Black Flag founder and guitarist Greg Ginn
will bring his country-style rhythm and blues band Greg Ginn and the Texas Corrugators
to Billings on Saturday, April 4.Ginn
is best-known for being a founding and fixed member of the influential
hardcore band Black Flag and for starting SST Records to disperse Black
Flag's material. SST grew to a national independent label for
underground music.At 53, Ginn relocated from Long Beach to
Texas. He runs SST from a small Texas town outside of Austin, and he
has been touring under the moniker Greg Ginn and the Texas Corrugators
since the winter of 2008. Expectant punk rockers may bask in
Ginn's punk rock roots, but shouldn't expect 80s hardcore punk.
Instead, Ginn has cranked out a rollicking twang that seems aptly
suited to an aging rocker who refuses to conform.
