Cro-Mags founder, Harley Flanagan himself and his attorney have told nynatives.com exclusively in a statement that everything that happened on July 6th at the CBGB's Festival Cro-Mags show at Webster Hall happened in "self defense." Harley was not the aggressor and any and all of his actions were in self defense. This statement is in direct conflict with all major media reports covering the events which happened that night.

Look for an interview in the coming days via the site. It'll be interesting to hear another side of the story to what happened at Webster Hall that fateful night. Either way, we are glad to hear that his alleged target Mike "The Gook" is feeling better, though he is currently seeking donations for his medical bills. Donate if you can, details on how are below.

If you missed it, CBGB issued a statement regarding the incident and we posted pictures from the show before it was shut down.

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP MIKE COULS:

In lieu of recent events at the Cro-Mags show this past weekend at Webster Hall, the family of Mike "The Gook" Couls has set up a donation fund via PayPal to help absorb the extraordinary expenses accrued from having been stabbed multiple times and hospitalized - with no insurance.

Mike is a recent parent of a beautiful baby girl who could have very easily been left fatherless due to the erratic and callous actions of the perpetrator, Harley Flanagan. It is with great fortune that the aforementioned possibility is not the reality, however, the enormous bills from the hospital are.

A lifetime of commitment is what Mike "The Gook" has offered the greater Hardcore community. We ask that you please donate in honor of his dedication to this community we are all a part of and also in support of his family.
