I always thought the second wave of punk got a short shrift. Combat 84, the Exploited, and Minor Threat were just as exciting (to me, at least) as anything from 77. If not for the associated football hooliganism, the 4-Skins album The Good, the Bad, and the 4-Skins (or, hell, any other album they pu...

THIS IS CLEARLY THE ISSUE OF OUR TIMES. Also: I never understood the point of non-German nationalists using the swastika. If you love your country so much, why do you want to turn it into effin' Germany? Get your own symbol. Also pt 2: I hate modern-day communists more than I hate modern-day Nazis o...

If it wasn't 10" I would be less tempted. Do you know how nice 10" records look all lined up? Plus, I would have an excuse to put EC next to thrash metal, which is always an amusing juxtaposition. Everything depends on whether or not the record store has their pretentious scenester rekkids restocked...

I picked "Chelsea" because I always think it's going to be faster than it is."Pick it up!" I say to my cd player. "Stop lagging, ya damn slowpoke!" Then I do the finger-drums thing (bum da bumbum da!), because my impulse is to give every punk song an Oi beat, and because I have musical ADD. Clearly,...

I'm waiting, but if he releases a single I'll download that.

Glad to hear it's another 'rowdy rhythm' album - my current musical kick is loud'n'stompy, so it should fit right in.

I made a mix for a friend who said she liked EC but only had MAIT. Her favorite band is the Ataris. With that in mind, and also the fact that I have odd tastes, the setlist: 1. New Lace Sleeves 2. All the Rage 3. Opportunity 4. I Hope You're Happy Now 5. Complicated Shadows 6. (I Don't Want to go to...

El Vez: 1. And how! I use 'pop' to mean everything that's popular now, was popular at some point, or is modeled after something that is/was popular, but doesn't transcend into the 'Oh Holy Mother of Fuck' category (EC, Dylan, etc). 3.

Unpopular Opinions

1. Quality rap is more interesting than quality pop. 2. The youth of today are no worse than the youth of yesterday. 3. Liberals are more dangerous than the right-wing. I'm making a distinction between 'liberal' and 'left'. 4. Punk's not dead. 5. I like Harry Potter, but I'd rather read fanfiction t...

Their early stuff had a Christie Front Drive-esque charm, but that's just because they ripped them off. They also ripped Sunny Day Real Estate, but SDRE ripped off Fugazi, so, uh, that's a couple layers of unoriginality right there. The one EP is pretty good, though...the one with "Off the Wagon"? Y...
