On August 5, 2022 John Rivera passed away all too soon and has left a deep chasm in the hearts of the punk/hardcore community. John also leaves behind a legacy of records produced by his label Headfirst! Records. He created countless memories from hanging out with friends at punk/metal shows, wrestling matches, or comic shops. He carefully curated Punks on Paper – a comprehensive digital archive of North Carolina’s punk/hardcore scene.
Only a handful of individuals on Earth could bring together such a powerful reunification of musical juggernauts for one cold December day

Hello, my name is Justin Driscoll. Originally from New Jersey, I call the wonderful state of North Carolina home. I might have taken your photo at some point or met you at a Rock N Roll show? However, I also have many other facets of my life I am passionate about. I started this site to talk about some of those things.
Whether it be guitars, guitar gear, Harley’s, Jeep stuff, photography, vinyl or travels, I’ll be on here to chat about it.
Stay Weird, Stay Creative!
