Rarely enough one man can be credited with inventing an entire genre - but in the case of hardcore one name comes up all the time - Greg Ginn. 'There are several books out on punk history, but I haven't read any of them. I was there.' His band BLACK FLAG remains an iconic band formed in 1976 in Hermosa Beach, CA by guitarist, primary songwriter, and sole continuous member Greg Ginn who many call the godfather of hardcore punk - a truly American genre. Their discography includes seven studio albums and two live albums.
The band has released all of their material on Ginn’s independent label, SST Records beginning with 1981’s Damaged. Vocalist, Mike Vallely, first sang with the band as a guest vocalist in 2003, before becoming the band’s fifth vocalist and touring with the band in 2014.
BLACK FLAG is currently recording new material for a new studio album and will come to Hong Kong for the very first time - one of only 2 shows in Asia in 2020!
