Louis Lingg mp3 audio | ogg audio | torrent | unedited videoI did a little better on show notes this time. is cool!Jamendo is Luxemborg, not French.Jamendo has been unfriendly and banning people.What does "punk" mean to you?Punk rock is political.

The Wildmp3 audio | ogg audio | torrentI apologize for the long hiatus loyal Punkcast listeners. I don't have any ETA on when I'll be back. I finish law school in very late April though, so I'm hoping some time after that I can get back in the swing of things.The first thing I need to do is go back through the Music Manumit catalog and see if there is anything I need to re-release. I doubt there is. If there was, I probably would have thought to do it like I am doing now.Anyway, enjoy this interview with Witt from folk punk band The Wild!
 mp3 audio | ogg audio | torrent | unedited videoThis summer, I plan on doing interviews every other week with punk artists of various types from all over the world. David Rovics is American, but is currently touring in Scotland. He sat down with me for 20 minutes or so talk to punk music, politics and more. I couldn't really take notes like I normally do when Tom and I do shows together. The plus side of doing these summer shows is that I have ultimate flexibility with scheduling. The down side is that show notes are either not going to happen or will require going back and reconstructing them.I'd also like to apologize to David for taking so long to get this out. I was traveling last week and managed to get sick while doing so."I'm a Better Anarchist than You" by David Rovics (folk punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"Halliburton Boardroom Massacre" by David Rovics (folk punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"Why Don't They Play You On The Radio?" by David Rovics (folk punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website
In the spirit of being as random as possible in dispensing with remixable Creative Commons punk goodness, I have another show for you today!!!!mp3 audio | ogg audio | flac audioThis time, the unifying theme is my banshee plays. I use my phone sometimes and I have had other computers in the past and don't port over my plays, so this is a reasonable approximation of the tracks from the past year, but won't line up with exactly.I did a similar thing on the main show, where there are no genre limitations (and a different list of previously played tunes)"Punknews is Stoked" by O Pioneers!

It's been way too long, so I thought we should have a quickie. Er... Well, you know what I mean, right?I probably wouldn't be sharing this particular track except that it comes from an album entitled "Experiments in Punk Pedagogy / Live at The New School" and I thought it might engender some discussion.So, is it punk?"Suicide" by Dreamweapon (other) - CC BY-NC-SA - WebsitePS: This is a subscriber exclusive. Since it's just a single track and the track is already on, I didn't bother iterating on Rare release, just for you. ;)
This show is dedicated to Morten "Fucking-Long-Name".mp3 audio | ogg audio | flac audioFor this show I decided to go first through my Top 500 All-Time tracks and pick the first 6 punk tracks I haven't played on the show that are remixable.116. "Class War" by Gråsuggorna (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website130. "75" by De Fuckups (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website*305. "On The Run" by Gråsuggorna (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website342. "You and Me" by Shearer (orgcore) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website*Actually, I could have played more De Fuckups, but I didn't want them to take over the show.  I didn't have enough in my Top 500 (without playing more De Fuckups), so this last two are from the Last Year list. Yes, these are both from the same band, so why discriminate against De Fuckups? I don't know. I guess I've just listened to them too much and am a bit tired of them at the moment. Also, their website appears to be down at the moment.13. "Conspiracy" by Louis Lingg and the Bombs (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website13. "Zapatista" by Louis Lingg and the Bombs (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website
Technically speaking, the re-post of Louis Lingg and The Bombs was the 7th show...I just failed to make it 007. What a huge fail. I hope so sweet tunes will make it up to you, even if it is just a repeat of my tracks from the latest Music Manumit show.ogg audio | mp3 audio(I figured I should get with the program now that I know what I'm doing a bit more in Audacity)"Love and Hate Tragedy" by Pete Vyler (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"Backstreet Emperor" by Pete Vyler (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"My Kind" by Pete Vyler (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"I Don't Care about You" by Pete Vyler (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"All Around the World" by Pete Vyler (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website"Failure (Acoustic live) - Bonus Track" by Pete Vyler (punk) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website

A few months ago I gave you the interview for Isaac Graham. This time I give you the interview with Joe of Copyleft Records.If the enclosure doesn't work for some reason, you can listen to the show courtesy the good people at am being lazy and not re-recording the intro. Deal with it. This is punk rawk suckas.
I couldn't be bothered to put together an intro. Law school is time-consuming. I let two months slip by and I just wanted to get some music out the door.You'll notice I didn't worry about the licensees being -NC or not, so no flattr button this time. I hope to do a couple more October shows to check up and maybe I'll go libre at that point. I also didn't worry about finding band websites (except for The Spunk Lads since I have that queued up for the main show already). You should be able to find the band websites from the song titles and band names. I hope not to be such a slacker in the future! If you have trouble finding them, let me know and I'll try to help.If the enclosure doesn't work for some reason, you can download the file courtesy of the good folks at"Spunk Lads FC" by The Spunk Lads (punk) - BY-NC-SA - WebsiteNote: the version on the website is not the version we are playing. I cut the version on the show since the track on the website is actually two songs."I Hate You Baby" by Jonny Chan and the New Dynasty 6 - CC BY-NC-SA"Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" by Kingface - CC BY-NC-SA"Sheena" by Sidekick Lupchen & The Bad Generation - CC BY-NC-SADedication to my "lawyering" ;) (and the next song)"Fight Song" by Cletus Got Shot (bluegrass or "folk punk") - CC BY-NC-SA
It's a 2 for 1 deal today! Due to my slackness the June and July podcasts have come out today. I know it's poor podcasting form to release two in one day, but I'm a believer in the "release early and release often" philosophy. On the thought of releasing early and releasing often, I have found myself spending more time on the intros than I thought I would but I think that's because it's just me rather than a discussion with Tom. Things are so new and in flux that I have a lot to say as well. Eventually I hope to say "this is the Music Manumit Punkcast" and be done with it!Anyway, this show is a rerun of the Music Manumit Podcast interview with Australian singer/songwriter Isaac Graham. We discuss his punk roots, folk punk, his affiliation with Copyleft Record and more!Per usual, I'm releasing only in the open format ogg. You can download it from the amazing If you have an Android phone, this file will work. Many browsers also have ogg support built in. As for media players, Songbird on Windows/Mac will play ogg files. If you want an mp3 version, let me know - just don't tell me you want it for an iPhone because I might not do it. I can get away with being a dick about it because this is punk rock baby!!
I missed June...sorta.  I had the show up in June on  Well, the songs are still here and they are still rockin'!Download ogg*Per usual, if you want an mp3 version, let me know and I can make that happen.Tom's Picks - Punk tracks (in honor of Doug's upcoming punk music podcast)."Ten Dollars" by The Nunchaks (punk) - CC-BY-SA - Website"Copyleft Notice" by Out of Tune (punk) CC-BY-NC-sampling+ - Website"Have a Date" by Mr Feelix (punk) - CC-BY-NC-sampling+ - Website"Flash Freddy" by Zampano (punk) - CC-BY-Sampling+ - Website"Princess Mononoke" by Louis Lingg and the Bombs (punk) - CC-BY-NC-Sampling+ - Website
Eventually this will be a monthly punk*-only show of remixable Creative Commons music, brought to you my Doug of the Music Manumit Podcast.  Many of the tracks will have been played on previous Music Manumit shows, but eventually I'll run out of punk songs from that show.Download ogg* (let me know if you want an mp3 version.  I can make that happen, it'll just take more of my time. :) )"Uppkomlingen" - by Gråsuggorna - (punk) - CC-BY-NC-SA - Website"Punkpolice" - by Predator - (punk) - BY-SA-NC - Website"frustrator" - by NO SE (punk) - BY-SA-NC - Website"Punk Chicks" - by The A.G's (pop punk) - CC-BY - Website There's not likely to be a lot of pop punk on the show, but I like to reward groups that don't use the -NC.  Also, this is a song *about* punk, so I feel it's relevant."Glass" by The Smashing Pumpkins (punk...just listen to it) off MACHINA II (an "unreleased album") - CC BY-NC-SA - WebsiteIf you have a better genre for this than punk, I'd be curious as to what people think of it."Something's Wrong" by Loudog (skacore) - CC BY-NC-SA - Website*punk, skacore, hardcore and the punkier post-hardcore.  There will be very little, if any of what most people think of "post-punk".  There will also be very little, if any of what is commonly known as "Emo-core" or "Screamo" (old-school or 'real screamo' may be a possibility)
