Just a Lil' Somethin'
What is up people. Its been a bit of time since I have even looked at this page, and frankly I am dismayed at how negligent I have been. If this were my garden it would be over run with weeds. Not the good kind either. If this were an empty lot, it would have lots of broken glass in it.
Now its spring, time for some spring cleaning then!
I made this mix for my friend who wanted to hear more new punk. This was about two years ago when we both started our new jobs at the same place and, while I still stand by it today, I guess I cant lie... I would not only probably make it totally different now, but I would also feel the necessity to make a 3-mix set, or something similarly grandiose, to even touch upon the amount of punk music that has meant so much to me over the years.
Well, this is what I made then, and as I said I stand behind it. The main thrust of this mix was to give someone who may not know a lot about punk a good idea of where punk has been throughout the years and where its headed. I think in that capacity I did a decent job, even if I passed over specific classics in favor of something I was vibing off of then.
So, while many of you may be familiar with these bands my hope is turn at least each person to one new band and maybe make them re-evaluate the importance of a band they might have overlooked. Clearly this a flawed idea cuz most of you will tell me "OMG you forgot this song!!!" or "You put THAT Minor Threat song?!".. Haha. Yep. I sure did.
