390 A New Revolution

So I saw this amazing newish band 390 awhile back and a copy of their album Punk Resurrection made its way across my desk. It’s solid! Their sound is reminiscent of early Vandals. Especially Ronnie X’s voice. They also do interviews on their YouTube and have a couple awesome videos for the tracks Don’t Wanna Be Controlled and I Hate the Government. It’s a perfect shot of old school O.C. punk for this watered down era. These guys are total heroes for the underground.

Catch em live and get a copy of this album. And someone snag me a shirt! Kidding about the shirt. But do see em live and play the album loud!

Peter 118: Punk as F**k

So a new punk band has been burning up social media and the center of some controversy. Now some may be wondering what makes a punk band controversial in 2018? The fact that they’re unabashed Christians. Now for those who don’t think that’s punk, you’re missing the point. Punk is about challenging the status quo. In the 80’s it was Thatcher and Reagan. Well when the status quo is atheism and overly tight black jeans in our own stagnating scene, then a guy in tan cargo shorts singing about Jesus is Joe freaking Strummer. It’s not about whether or not you believe in God. It’s about whether or not you still believe in punk at a time where Nazis are a real and true threat on both sides of the pond. The musically cool thing about Peter 118 is the variance of influences. One track sounded like Riverdales, one like 80’s Bad Religion and another like old street punk. So check em out. And don’t be a jerk about other’s beliefs, unless they’re Nazis.

An Open Letter to Punk Rock

Dear punk rock scene,

What in the actual fuck? I thought you believed in change and freedom. Yet when I post about the plight of Leonard Peltier or Mumia Abu Jamal (men you eductated me on) the engagement is little to none. When I make complaints about Nazis, racists and other such parasites hanging off of you, you only get mildly angry. I know we’ve lost so many and things haven’t been the same since Joe died, but we we’re fueled and angry during Bush and damned of we didn’t fight that. But you fell strangely silent during Obama. I shook you, waves smelling salts and even slapped you screaming “this is not the right change! It’s actually getting worse!” Parts of you got the idea, but most of you eas either patting the anointed leader on his delicate ass or simply comatose. Now we have literally the worst administration of your 40 plus year life and I’m waiting to see a bigger reaction. Maybe you’re getting ready for this fight since you got out of shape in the last 8 years. Maybe you really are dead and leftnus believers behind. It took me awhole to find thesenwords as I’ve been quite apoplectic. I hope this letter finds you and serves as an epi pen to get your ass of the trash covered floor. Shit is getting so sideways that you’ll look back on Reagan with fondness. So wash off the money shot you took from the DNC and realize that these public serpents are the problem as are the close minded parasites who hang around you.

Sincerely,

Maty Almost
