Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham Launches Podcast

Fucked Up frontman Damian Abraham has already proven his acumen as a TV host via his erstwhile MuchMusic series The Wedge. Now he’s turning his attention to podcasting. Abraham’s posted on Instagram that each week on his new series Turned Out A Punk “I’ll talk to people from all walks of life with one thing in common: they all grew up listening to punk.” The first episode premiered this morning, and it features an interview with Martin Mills of Beggars Music Group, “who before putting out Adele records put out one of the “first” punk records,… and ‘passed’ on Nirvana.” We’re promised these topics will be addressed as well:

-His firsthand view of the cultural year zero that was punk
-Putting out one of the first punk singles
-Renting Gary Neman (sic) his first keyboard
-Chrome sleeping on his floor
-Never meeting Scott Walker
-Sex Pistols vs. The Clash.
-Working with the Fall.
-Working with the Ramones.
-Working with Adele.
-Not working with Nirvana and REM.
