Here's a sign that a punk band is out of touch: When its fortysomething guitarist stands before a sold-out crowd of four thousand mostly white, beefy dudes, and rails against the one thing he hates the most - using a violent homophobic slur to do so. Granted, Pennywise's Fletcher Dragge was trying to rip on his heavy metal-listening high school nemeses, and the rest of the band cringed and mumbled “Not cool” while Dragge tried to walk it...

After more than 20 years in the Southern California punk band Pennywise, lead singer Jim Lindberg said Friday he is moving on. "Being the singer for this band has been an amazing experience, and along the way we made some of the best fans anyone could ask for," Lindberg said in a statement that wished "everyone in the Pennywise family the best of luck and continued success." The release said Lindberg is working on a documentary based on his 2007 book, "Punk Rock Dad," and also is planning a recording project.

PENNYWISE singer Jim Lindberg has had pointed words for authority figures over the years. Check out the fourth (and unprintable) track on his band's 2001 album "Land Of the Free?" or pretty much any cut from the group's lengthy catalog of thrashy skate-punk. That attitude is an asset when you're headlining the Warped Tour and riling teenagers into a mosh pit.

Punk rock has been on the attack ever since Johnny Rotten started sneering about anarchy, no future, and how the queen ain't no human being. Born in opposition and suckled on bile, most punk bands come naturally to mockery, ire and scorn. Like good guard dogs, they are inclined by breeding to greet whatever comes their way with a snarl and a show of fangs.

The singer from the band Pennywise spends a lot of time on tour, so he cherishes the days he spends at home in Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach. Beach days I grew up in the South Bay beach area, and one of the things that makes me nostalgic about the past is buying a bunch of pastrami, turkey and chicken sandwiches from Boccato's deli in Hermosa Beach and taking them down to the beach to eat them on the sand.

South Bay punk band Pennywise named itself after the clown-guised demon from Stephen King's story "It." But the band members weren't trying to garb themselves in commonplace horror-rock trappings. "It's more of a metaphor," said Jim Lindberg, the group's singer. "The clown in the book would turn into whatever scared you the most. In order to eventually kill the entity that was Pennywise, they had to confront their fears.

*** Pennywise, "Straight Ahead," Epitaph. Because Pennywise understands the value of subtlety in the ham-fisted genre of hard-core punk, its music has evolved beyond mere mosh fodder. On its latest album, understated grooves and melodic gusts temper the weighty one-two grind, and singer Jim Lindberg tackles topics such as alienation and disaffection without resorting to juvenile gags or political poses--all of which keeps "Straight Ahead" (due Tuesday) right on target.
