I listened to a lot of bands like Circle Jerks, Exploited, Agnostic Front in late 80’s, but I’d say first I really got into was probably Minor Threat a year or 2 later.
I just finished This book is full of spiders, seriously dude don’t touch it. It was very good…I liked it better than John dies at the end. Quite humerous.
>>tdulawan, Good call…Tank is great! I’ve always been a big fan of Big Drill Car and Tank reminds me of them a lot.
Plow United’s Marching Band atm
I’ve been listening to White Lung a lot recently. They’re pretty badass.
I like Dogwood. Musically, I’d say they’re pretty punk…on the poppy side, but fast. Lead vocals are probably an acquired taste. Lyrically, they are extremely christian…with a few exceptions, pretty much all their songs reference their religious or moral beliefs.
I forgot about The Muffs. She’s the female vocalist on NOFX’s Lori Meyers.
A couple brit bands I really like: Consumed and Phinius Gage
I haven’t seen it in a really long time, but when it came out I loved Dudes http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092933/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2
In addition to fantasy series, I’m a big fan of post-apocalyptic books:
I am Legend (very different from movie)
A Canticle for Liebowitz
I’m always looking for more if anyone has recommendations.
Seems completely improbable, but I can actually list a single album that is my all-time favorite:
Bigwig – Reclamation.
It came out on my birthday almost 7 years ago and I instantly loved it. The infusion of metal elements seemed so revolutionary…they were a punk band incorporating some metal rather than a metal/thrash band playing some punk. It goes strong from start to finish, not a single weak song. All are memorable on their own, but together make a completely badass album. There have been times over the years that it hasn’t left my pickup’s cd player for weeks at a time (granted I do have a short drive between home and work).
The Distillers, Go Betty Go, Tsunami Bomb, L7. There’s some other decent band “Mandy and the ?” or something like that…can’t remember
I saw the Cro-Mags in either ’88 or ’89…boy, was that an eye-opening experience.
Hello, I’m Phil and live in Oregon. I was born in ’74 in SoCal, but raised in Denver. My brother who is 4 years older got me into punk at a pretty early age. I remember skating in the driveway listening to black flag and circle jerks in ’83-’84 or so and I’ve listened ever since.
I’m a fan of all punk genres, from pop to hardcore, gravelcore to cowpunk. I work as a CAD manager at an engineering firm and teach CAD part-time at the local community college. I live in a fairly small town now, so it’s a bit of a drive to the city for shows, but my bro and I try to as often as life allows.
I’m a frequent visitor/reader of DS (maybe obsessively so lol). Seriously, I’ve discovered so many of my current favorite bands here: A Dying Regime, Does it Matter, Banner Pilot, Shell Corporation, Dead to Me, Yankee Brutal.
