On March 14th, Oakland queercore sensations Middle-Aged Queers will be releasing their debut album entitled “Too Fag For Love” via Outpunx Records in collaboration with Sell The Heart Records, which is ran by Andy Pohl of Tsunami Bomb.
The hazy origins of punk, like that of the early hip-hop and psychedelic movements gets divided by coast. The capitals of these movements depends on the lens of study and genre but its impossible not to bring up the Bay Area when discussing the beginning of punk and hardcore. Self-proclaimed, ‘seasoned punks’ Middle Aged Queers are exactly what they say they are and proud of it. Sporting members of revered Bay Area bands like Flipper, Fang and Wet-Nap, Middle Aged Queers have something to say to an emerging generation of punks. Their debut album Too Fag For Love has fun pop-punk, anthemic bangers like the opening track, “Gary’s Making Biscuits”, and their hard-hitting theme song which sums up their ethos and message simply with the lyrics ‘we’re the middle aged queers, go fuck yourself’. This album will make you want to skate and go tag something, whether you first heard Green Day from American Idiot or you saw them at 924 Gilman back-in-the-day.
