“The Last of the Puritans”: North Carolina rejects polygamy-themed beer: ‘Polygamy is illegal’


Polygamy and beer reportedly don’t mix in North Carolina.


A polygamy-themed beer was rejected for sale in North Carolina because “polygamy is illegal.” The beer in question is already being sold in at least 20 other states, including Utah.


Utah based Wasatch Brewery recently filed a request to sell their Polygamy Porter in North Carolina, Fox 13 reports. While the brewery already sells a variety of beers in the state, it was determined that Polygamy Porter “represents something illegal.”


In a statement to Fox 13, the North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission said, “The NC ABC always gives thoughtful consideration to each label and uses the criteria outlined in the statutes as the basis for every rejection or approval.” They also claim that according to their statutes, “representing something illegal is undignified and in bad taste.”
When the brewery received the rejection letter, they were shocked. “It caught us quite by surprise, we were not expecting it especially because we’ve been making this beer now for 18 years,” Wasatch Brewery Co-Chief Operating Officer and brewmaster Jon Lee told Fox 13. “Of any places that you’d think we’d have trouble with, it would be here in our home state, but no it just sails right on through.”


Wasatch has appealed the decision and will head to Raleigh on August 14 to argue their case. “We’ll do our best to make this available for those folks out in North Carolina and they’ll get to enjoy all of the fantastic Polygamy Porter that we’re making here in Utah,” Lee said.
The Wastach Brewery website describes Polygamy Porter as a “smooth, chocolatey, easy-drinkin’ brown porter that’s more than a little bit naughty.” Now all that’s left is to find out if it’s too “naughty” for North Carolina.

L.A. GUNS feat. Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns announce another batch of North American tour dates


SOURCE: sleazeroxx.com


L.A. Guns consisting of lead vocalist Phil Lewis , guitarists Tracii Guns and Ace Von Johnson, bassist Johnny Martin and drummer Scot Coogan continue to tour behind their latest studio album The Devil You Know, which was released earlier this year.


Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of L.A. Guns‘ last show in support of their The Missing Peace album at the Fish Head Cantina in Halethorpe, Maryland, USA back in October 2018:


“The band did not disappoint this time, either! They came out powerfully with “No Mercy” and everyone in the crowd was on their toes. They loved it! Usually while shooting photos for the first three songs, I don’t get to pay enough attention to the songs as I’d like but I found myself singing along as I was trying to find good angles. That told me that the show was fun!


One thing that really took me by surprise was the fact that, being the very last show of this tour, Phil’s vocals still sounded great! He sang with ease and had every bit of the range he needed. That’s really impressive and is very difficult for a singer. Tracii smiled so much onstage that it was easy to see he was having a ball! Again, being the last show of the tour, you’d expect the band to be worn out and just trying to get through this last show but it wasn’t that way at all. You would have thought this was the show that was going to kick the tour off. Tracii has written so many memorable riffs and has such a distinctive sound that when he starts a song, your body starts tingling because the sound of that riff transports you directly into the song. It’s invigorating!”

Will AC/DC Announce 2019/2020 Tour Dates Next Week?


According to Topeka, Kansas rock radio station V100, AC/DC will announce the details of its 2019-2020 world tour on Wednesday, July 17.


So far, there has been no corroboration from an official source about the timeline of a possible tour announcement, with the station adding on its web site: “Obviously, we’re talking about the music biz here, [so] things could change. But, right now that’s what we’ve been told.”


Citing a “reliable source” that is “close with the AC/DC camp,” V100 goes on to say that AC/DC’s upcoming tour will include longtime singer Brian Johnson, who was forced to leave the band mid-tour in 2016 due to a dangerous level of hearing loss. “It’s been rumored for months now that he’s been working with the band and we’ve been told those rumors are true,” the station writes. “Brian has been working special in-ears made for his performances so that he can continue to perform without causing any more damage to his hearing than he already has.”



Rumors of a new AC/DC record have been circulating for several months, ever since Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd, along with guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young, were photographed outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios. Based on the pictures, the assumption at the time was that AC/DC was in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup. Online reports have also indicated Angus Young will dedicate the new AC/DC album to his late brother.

Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for “Rock Or Bust” three years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of Johnson, Rudd and bassist Cliff Williams — fans have wondered whether sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.


Johnson was eventually replaced on the road by GUNS N’ ROSES frontman Axl Rose, while Williams decided to retire at the end of the cycle.


Earlier this year, a photo surfaced of Williams and Johnson in Vancouver, fueling speculation that the bassist was back in AC/DC and taking part in the recording sessions for the new album.

MISFITS To Play Madison Square Garden In October


MISFITS will play their only 2019 East Coast show on October 19 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Support at the concert will come from special guests RANCID and THE DAMNED. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday, July 19 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.com.


The current lineup of the MISFITS features original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only.


MISFITS played two historic comeback concerts in 2016 at Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago that drew rabid fans in droves from all over the world and shattered attendance records at the festivals. More recently, MISFITS played two shows in December 2017 in Los Angeles and in Las Vegas, in May 2018 in New Jersey, and in April 2019 in Chicago.


Regarding how the MISFITS reunion came about, Danzig told Revolver: “Jerry and I resolved a lot of legal issues we had with each other. This just happened about two and a half years ago. And I’m seeing all these people die unexpectedly: [David] Bowie, Chris Cornell and Prince, really out of the blue. And I’m just like, if we’re going to ever do this, we should do it now while we’re still healthy and we still look good and can run around onstage. I take care of myself, man. And we’re all in pretty good shape. And who knows how long we’re going to be like that. I don’t want to be onstage with crutches or a cane singing. Fuck that shit. That’s not the MISFITS. MISFITS are fucking take no prisoners. It’s in your face, right to the front of the stage — smash your head against the wall until we’re done and we say goodnight. That’s what it needs to be.”

He added: “I don’t want to go on tour. A show here, a show there, keep it special. I don’t want people to think we’re just milking it. We should just be selective and let people see what it really was. And so far it’s been insane.”


Asked if he is enjoying doing that material again, Glenn said: “I just go out there and enjoy the interaction with everybody. People are just losing their minds, so it’s a lot of fun. I try to do what I normally do. I’m just me, singing the songs I wrote, going crazy onstage and running all over. I’m enjoying having Dave [Lombardo, ex-SLAYER] drumming because he’s one of my favorite drummers of all time and it’s just so much fun.”


Prior to the Riot Fest concerts, Glenn, Jerry and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein last performed together on October 29, 1983.


Joining Glenn, Jerry and Doyle at all the reunion shows so far have been Lombardo and second guitarist Acey Slade.


The original MISFITS band broke up in 1983, and Only brought forth a new version of the MISFITS in 1995. Various members have come and gone, but Only, along with BLACK FLAG’s Dez Cadena, has kept some form of the MISFITS in the recording studio and on the road for most of the last two decades.
