Slack-ass bands

Is talent inversely related to initiative or something? Only TWO bands I contacted to submit MP3s to be included in the above player have come through (thanks for acting like responsible adults, Racin for Pinks and Happy Valley). Jesus H, c'mon guys. Bing's bands came through. You're makin' me look bad... chumps.

To hell with pop-punk

Not to dis the kids or anything, 'cause everybody's gotta start somewhere, but the underage music landscape is just overgrown with the weeds of pop-punk. Look at the early bookings around town (y'know, when doors open while the sun is still up), it's everywhere. I'm not saying it can't be done well because almost anything can. But not often.

So kids, you need to start digging deeper (and harder) than the overdriven candy you call punk rock. It may be fun, it may be addictive, but it's just a fluffy smokescreen from the truth I know you seek (Right? Right?). But your proper musical rearing is what I'm here for so that's why I've posted some tracks by Racin' for Pinks, an actual punk rock band. Start there and we'll continue the discussion later.

Racin' for Pinks - Long Knives
Racin' for Pinks - This Shit Kills
Racin' for Pinks - Robo
