Johnny X:

At some point over the last 10 years the Punk Scene began to lose its Angst. It might have begun when mainstream media decided to dub bands of the corporate produced, high-pitched vocal variety as "punk". Unfortunately, as some of these bands saw success among the masses, many of the punk labels responsible for the golden years of the 90's saw the dollar signs in backing a publicly palatable sound and quickly jumped on the bandwagon.

Seemingly overnight a genre known for its desperation, anger and nonconformity became known for its goofyness, whininess and catchy hooks. At the same time the old bands that built the Punk Scene of the 90's began to grow stale as their own success robbed them of the discontentment that once fueled their rage and drove their music.

But that angst is still out there. I created this website to expose to wider audiences the bands that still have that fire burning inside them. I created it to pump new blood into the anemic state of true Punk Rock today and to help salvage the remains of a DYING SCENE.

    Not at all what I was expecting but gotta say I quite enjoyed it. Seems more like something you'd expect to hear on "Duh" and that's not a bad thing at all.

    Nope. We find all our signings through the regular channels of our news coverage. In other words, submit your music for news and review consideration on and if we like your stuff enough we'll approach you about putting the album out through DS Records.

    Guessing you didn't actually read the whole story.

    About Time is still a 5 star album, IMO. I don't think that means All Or Nothing can't be a 5 as well.

    Does anybody know the mysterious reason we do this? Yes, there is a reason. Whoever can answer it gets a virtual high-five from me.
