Melodic Skatepunk, my weapon of choice as a teenage skateboarder back in the mid 90's. When punk broke in 1994 , moments after Nirvana paved the way to mainstream succes, tons of undergound skatepunk bands rose up and left their marks on kids all over the globe. In 2019 Southern Californians Chaser are set on a mission to keep that style of punk alive and kicking. A quest that led them to Jera On Air to play the Buzzard stage on Saturday. Time to chase vocalist Mike LeDonne around the festival and find out all about Chaser's mission.
The Netherlands have always had a vibrant scene of punkkbands, back in the 90's bands such as Undeclinable Ambuscade, NRA, Heideroosjes,... took over Europe by storm. But the one Dutch band that crossed the pond and got to be the first foreign band on the Epitaph record label roster was Dordrecht's own I Against I. 20 years later the band is back in full force and playing Jera On Air with their classic album Headcleaner. RMP Magazine just had to find out what the guys are up next to.
Dog Eat Dog has been an institute for cross over music since the early 90's. With their unique blend of rock, punk, hip hop, funk and so much more they conquered the world and inspired thousands of musicians to pick up an instrument and make their own blend of music. 28 years later Dog Eat Dog is still going strong and playing shows, time for RMP Magazine to talk to vocalist John Connor about the past, present and future of Dog Eat Dog.
Jera On Air is a nice, cosy and kick ass two day punk and hardcore festival in the rural town of Ysselsteyn located in the Limburg province of The Netherlands. The year 2018 brings the 26th edition of this punk rock banger and to sum it up, this year's line-up is basically off the charts.
