Matador Records’ blog brings the news that Government Issue vocalist John Stabb was assualted near his home in Maryland on July 17. (A bulletin-board post credited to Stabb describes the incident in unsettling detail.) A handful of benefits to cover his medical costs are in the works; the linked site will also point you to where you can make donations via PayPal. (Earlier this month Dischord re-pressed the LP version of Four Old Seven Inches, which includes Government Issue’s Legless Bull EP.)
