PCWC interviews Chris from Propagandhi

A few weeks ago after tabling the show, PCWC got the opportunity to interview Chris, the singer and guitarist for the great anarchist punk band Propagandhi. We had tons of questions in mind for him, but knowing his enthusiasm for hockey, we decided to limit our discussion to sports and anarchy. PCWC has an unofficial anarchist Phoenix Suns supporter group, so we are very interested in the relationship that anti-capitalists have to professional sports.

Our set up at the Propagandhi show

Chris was very generous and even stayed to chat long after our camera's battery died. If you haven't yet, you'd be doing yourself a favor by getting your hands on a copy of Propagandhi's newest album. Unlike a lot of bands from the early Fat Wreck Chords days, they continue to challenge themselves and to put out interesting, quality music.

Anyhow, being anarchists and therefore procrastinators, we have only now gotten around to editing the footage and putting it on the interweb. We hope you enjoy it.

Dear Engine Summer,

Thanks for your continued interest in our projects. We have been awfully busy lately, as I am sure you can tell from our blog. But I appreciate the suggestion. That sounds like a great idea for you to do whenever you get off the internet and form your own anarchist collective. If you need help getting started, we can tell you how to do it. Hit us up.
