Black N’ Blue Takeover Radio Show To Return On East Village Radio / Dash Radio


We are excited to announce that the Black N’ Blue Takeover radio show will be reuniting with East Village Radio in its birthplace on the Lower East Side of New York City very soon!

With the recent launching of Dash Radio, co-founded by EVR General Manager Peter Ferraro with Scott Keeney (DJ Skee), we will once again be gracing and moving back into the newly renovated and redesigned 1st Avenue studio before the reach of 2015 most likely. Also, stayed posted for details on EVR sister station Brooklyn Radio, an EVR-like store front studio located on N. 7th & Wythe in Williamsburg launching soon as well.

As far as specific show details, we do not have a known scheduled time slot as of yet. As those details develop, we will be sure to get that information out there and made aware of. We look forward to everyone’s participation in helping us spread the word as we look forward to the next chapter in Takeover history. That said, the currently active Black N’ Blue Takeover on WUSB 90.1FM will continue airing at its regular time (10pmET) the remainder of the year (Nov 26th & Dec 10th).


BNB Takeover Returns On WUSB 90.1FM Radio

SHEER TERROR Debut 2 Brand New Songs On BNB Takeover Radio Show [Tue 4/22, 8pmET,]


Having  just completed the first new Sheer Terror full-length record in nearly 20 years, entitled Standing Up For Falling Down (Reaper Records), the BNB Takeover are pleased and honored to give the world a sneak peek listen of what’s to be released this summer on the upcoming Tue, 4/22 episode. With 11 new songs for the full-length and the 2-song EP Spite from 2011 still fresh under their belts, it’s safe to say that the future for Sheer Terror, with their unparalleled and pre-existing legacy, has them proudly still waving the “here to stay” flag.

Take it from Sheer Terror frontman, Paul Bearer himself;

“I am so fucking proud of my band. Whether anyone else likes this record (and, you’d be a friggin’ cloth-eared toad, if you don’t), I can guarantee you this… there was never a fucking NYHC punk record that ever sounded like this — EVER! Hard as fucking nails. Fuck you and your fantasy as to what you think NYHC is. You have no fucking clue!!! Yeah, I’m that fucking sure.”

Be sure to listen in Tue, 4/22 from 8pmET to 10pmET exclusively on to hear the worldwide exclusive debut of “Ain’t Alright” and “Did You Just Meet Me?”.

BNB Bowl 2014 Line-Up Announcement On BNB Takeover [Tue 3/11, 8pmET,]

On the upcoming Tuesday, 3/11 episode of BNB Takeover, the guys will be revealing the highly anticipated line-up for the annual BNB Bowl 2014. Taking ahold of Brooklyn once again, be sure to listen in exclusively at at 8pmET sharp to get full details on the new venue location and of course, the always incredible band announcements. New York style!



The Punk/Hardcore community is in for a historical earful tonight on the BNB Takeover.

We are pleased to be sitting down with Director Drew Stone and Michael Alago in support of the current Kickstarter campaign for Alago’s documantary film, Who The Fuck Is That Guy? The Journey Of Michael Alago. The film will tell the uniquely American story of Michael Alago’s journey from humble roots in Brooklyn, into the netherworld of downtown New York’s music and arts scene in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Alago rose from running the Dead Boy’s fan club to becoming a live booker at the legendary Ritz nightclub and then onto a storied A&R career at Elektra Records, Geffen Records and Palm Pictures, where he signed and executive produced acts as diverse as Metallica, White Zombie, Flotsam and Jetsam, PiL, Cyndi Lauper and Nina Simone. The story covers the crazy glory days of the music business as well as how Michael survived the late 90’s industry downturn and re-invented himself successfully as a visual artist, poet and published photographer.

As if that’s not enough, we will also be sitting down with Kraut and former Cro-Mags guitarist, Doug Holland (joined by Keep Coming Back vocalist Ken Wagner), for his first interview in 20 years to discuss the roots of Kraut, the present incarnation and the future for one of New York Hardcore’s gems. With a weekend of upcoming shows in the New York / New Jersey area, with long time friends and California veterans Channel 3, listen live for details on those shows as well as some incredibly historical stories from a guy who has “been there and done that”.

An episode NOT to miss!

Listen live tonight at, 8pmET.
