Arguably, DC's first punk band
was the father/son duo called White Boy
. The two, Mr Ott and Jake Whipp
(real names: James & Glenn Kowalski) self released their records
own label, Doodly Squat
are also known to be the first punk
record owned by Minor Threat frontman Ian Mackaye.
The full story of White Boy is much darker
and hasn't been fully put together in the collective recollection of the band.
The father of White Boy
, James Kowalski, according to WebSlueths
was arrested with reams of child pornography in his home and another residence where child sex parties would occur after a investigation of a missing boy, Junior Burdinski. In 1993 he was arrested
, again, for child pornography and child molestation.
The son, Glenn, never speaking of the horrendous acts of his father now heads up the band 7 Door Sedan
and was interviewed by a DC music blog, BrightestYoungThings
about White Boy and his current project but the interview didn't even touch on the deviance of his father.
The full story puts a real twist on album and song titles such as: I Could Puke
, I'm So Straight
, Living in the Shadows and Heavens of Hell
