Multiple Black Flag Reunions Happening, One Of Which Recorded A New Album

black_flag_bars2011

This is about to get mildly confusing. Former Black Flag members Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski and Bill Stevenson (along with non-former member Stephen Egerton of the Descendants) have reunited as Flag for Punk Rock Bowling this year. However, at UK’s Hevy Fest, a lineup actually calling themselves Black Flag will be playing with original guitarist and band leader Greg Ginn, drummer Robo, and vocalist Ron Reyes. This leaves the bassist position open, as far as public knowledge goes.

Casual Black Flag fans will say “Where’s Henry Rollins?” and we will ignore them.

The real news is that Greg Ginn’s Black Flag – he owns the name, so his is the one that goes by Black Flag – has recorded a new album, according to Exclaim. I’m not sure how well new music from an 80s hardcore punk legend will be received, but it is happening and we’ll have to check it out. The timing is just eery that both sets of people are getting together at the same time.
