About Jesse Malin: Began his music career at the age of 12, in the seminal NYC hardcore band Heart Attack. Following that band’s end in 1984, Jesse worked on several other projects before joining D Generation. D Generation released three albums before disbanding in 1999. In 2002, Ryan Adams, who’d been a friend of Malin’s since the D Generation days, produced his debut solo album, The Fine Art of Self Destruction. In 2010, Malin released an album called Love It To Life; the title comes from a quote by Joe Strummer. His latest release, the EP Meet Me At The End Of The World, was released in June 2017 through One Little Indian/Velvet Elk Records.
About Jeff Raspe: Music Director at non-commercial radio station WBJB-FM (Brookdale Public Radio/90.5 The Night) in Lincroft NJ. Prior to joining WBJB, he was a DJ at WHTG-FM, FM106.3. While there he hosted the new music show called “The Underground.”
About StrummerJam: A fundraising event presented by The Joe Strummer Foundation. Throughout the month of August 2017 StrummerJam events are held around the world to celebrate the life, music and memory of Joe Strummer and to help raise funds for music non-profits. Events are independently organized by musicians, promoters, venues, record labels, DJs, artists and music fans. It is a DIY global fundraising campaign that unites people so that together we can help change the world through music, as Joe said “without people, you’re nothing.”
