Bio

Michael Stock is a Part Time Professor and a Part Time Punk—which means he is the DJ (and promoter & band booker & poster/flier-maker) at two weekly clubs in Los Angeles: PART TIME PUNKS every Sunday at The Echo (since 2005) & PUNKY REGGAE PARTY every Friday at La Cita (since 2006).   Since 2006, he has also hosted the critically acclaimed Part Time Punks radio show on KXLU (88.9FM/www.kxlu.com) every Thursday from 3-6pm PST.  Michael spins strictly vinyl and mostly the sounds of DIY and independently-released records circa 1978-present (meaning you could at any time hear punk, post-punk, minimal synth, Krautrock, industrial, indiepop, twee and/or shoegaze sounds).   For awhile, he was also writing a monthly column on vinyl records called “The Bins” for Flaunt Magazine, which was something like a cross between Lester Bangs and Theodor Adorno.  But now, he’s at work on his second graphic novel (while Scott Hampton illustrates the first).   Along the way, he has taught a number of courses on Punk, Comic Books and even things like Writing, Film Aesthetics and Drama at places like UCLA, UC-Irvine, Loyola Marymount and, for the past three years, CalArts.
