Interview with John Joseph
By Stepan Soroka
The Cro-Mags need no introduction. 30 years ago this year, the New York hardcore legends released The Age of Quarrel, one of the greatest punk rock albums ever recorded. To celebrate, frontman John Joseph McGowan is hitting the road with a Cro-Mags lineup consisting of original Age of Quarrel drummer Max Mackie, bassist Craig Scully and guitarist AJ Novello of fellow NYHC alumni Leeway. We called John Joseph at his home in New York to talk about the album’s legacy, his new band Bloodclot, competing in Iron Man, and who holds the title for greatest hardcore band of all time.
