Punk rock makes for strange political bedfellows

Okay, my pal Brian Topp is coming home.  That’s good for him and his family, not so good for Rachel Notley.

Her new top aide is a guy named John Heaney.  Who is John Heaney, you ask?  Well, he’s the young guy in the picture, to the far left (typical).  In the centre (typical), wearing a dog collar, sleeveless homemade Sex Pistols shirt and snarling? That’s Your Humble Narrator.  The young thugs pictured? The prairies’ first punk rock band, the Social Blemishes.

John Heaney (who went to both of my high schools, Bishop Carroll in Calgary and Loyola in Montreal), I apologize for embarrassing you in front of everyone important in Alberta, but you should’ve stuck with punk rock.

    I had that same t-shirt. Never tried to rock a dog collar though.

      Not exactly the same obviously. But a similar logo.
