After a hugely successful 2015, American Punk legends M.D.C. keep the momentum going with a series of US tours and a return to Europe.
M.D.C. is an American Punk Rock classic; formed out of the depths of Texas in 1981 by Dave Dictor, they are now based out of Portland Oregon and continue to lead the punk scene in catchy, far left socio-political ideology and through a high energy sound. The name is something of an enigma, changing with every release to reflect the issues of the day; previous names have included Multi Death Corporation, Millions of Dead Children, Millions of Damn Christians, and of course, the classic (and most controversial) Millions of Dead Cops.
MDC exists today, merging an 80s feel, with original members Dave Dictor still rocking the mic, championing causes dear to his heart such as Animal Rights, and Ron Posner on Guitar. They are joined by relative new comers, Mike Smith (No Red Flags) on bass, Jesse Onion Cobb (Embrace the Kill, Dirty Kid Discount) on drums, and second guitarist Bill Collins (from MDC’s 1990 line-up with Rancid’s Matt Freeman) which keeps things unpredictable and current.
MDC have racked up over 2000 gigs in its 36 year career with countless North American tours, 20 European tours, and have travelled to as far flung places as Brazil, Mexico, Australia, even New Zealand, and stir up energetic crowds wherever they go. MDC is excited by reports of protesters shouting “NO TRUMP, NO KKK, NO FASCIST USA” (MDC lyrics) at a recent Trump rally in South Carolina; the ideals that formed in 81 are still around and kicking today. MDC is heading to your home town soon, and are not to be missed!
