Protomartyr Q&A: 'The Only Reason I Threw Myself Into A Band At 37 Was Because I Made Terrible Life Decisions'

Protomartyr's second record 'Under Color of Official Right' was released earlier this year, and is already a strong contender for the title of album of the year. On it, the Detroit punk band tell tales of dodgy low-life's and the inner city turmoil that's rife in their poverty-stricken home, all with reference points that range from The Fall to James Joyce. I caught up with frontman Joe Casey recently, as he arrived in Baltimore for a live show on the band's last US tour.

Morrissey's Label Standoff - Why The Smith's Latest Controversy Is All Part Of His Enigma

It was all going so bloody well for Morrissey, too. Last year there was ‘Autobiography’ and, more crucially, this year along came ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’: two back-to-back documents which proved that his trademark wit, sharp-tongued barbs and oddly moving poetry were still intact.
