Two legendary Michigan punk bands will play a show at St. Andrew’s Hall on Saturday. WDET’s Rob St. Mary caught up with Tesco Vee – the lead singer of the Meatmen – to talk about the show and his new book collecting all the issues of the “Touch and Go” fanzine, a homemade publication which covered the punk scene from the late 70s and early 80s.
