Relief Fund Set Up For Stabbed CRO-MAGS Bassist Mike Couls
The biggest story coming out of last week's CBGB Festival, was the unfortunate stabbing by founding Cro-Mags bassist Harly Flanagan of current bassist, and NY hardcore scene mainstay, Mike "The Gook" Couls. Quick sidebar: Only in the hardcore scene, can a racial slur be considered a nickname, and be endearing.
Anyway, while Flanagan says he acted in self-defense, he ultimately sent Couls, who has no medical insurance, to the hospital. Couls will make a full recovery, but his wallet won't. Hospital bills are adding up and his family is asking for help from the community. If you have some spare cash to donate, you can get all the info here.
