Last week at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, Underground Garage DJ and Dictators frontman Handsome Dick Manitoba, Chris Stein of Blondie, Tommy Ramone and Lenny Kaye of The Patti Smith Group met for a conference on Jews in punk rock! (Read more at the New York Times). Interesting piece, but I don't buy into their excuses for allowing punk rockers the artistic licence to use nazi symbolism. Call me too politically correct, but I'm against that shit, straight up. With all due respect. I am a big fan of Handsome Dick as a frontman and as a DJ (and his bar is awesome), but I can't agree with that.
