August 31st, Noon - Tampa, FL
Work got cancelled today so it is giving me a chance to finally write this paragraph for the record. There are probably more important things to stress about like the fact that New Orleans is under water from Hurricane Katrina but here I am writing about a new band, new ideas, new music and I am not really sure what to say this time around.
I know there is something I should say due to the condition of "the scene" that we participate in. I understand that I may seem bitter, but that was never my intention. I believe I am just disappointed and/or frustrated in punk music as of late. I don't want to quit or give up. Actually, I love playing music and writing songs. I still have favorite bands and I check out new bands. In fact, I feel like TRANSMIT! TRANSMIT! validates the fact that we have something important and pertinent to say about our perspective toward the world and chronicles some of our experiences.
I guess punk rock used to feel like mine, a part of me, part of my identity, and not everybody got it. It is not that people couldn't get it, they didn't want to. Punk was not pop culture, it was not fashionable, and to most people it wasn't even cool. Now we divide it up into countless and marketable subgenres based on sound, not on content. In the past, Punk has had its bouts with mass culture and failed most of the time. In the end even a blind squirrel gets a nut every once in a while and the majors finally found a giant nut.
I am not trying to make some monumental statement. I want to play music, I love my art and that leads me to believe tht the compromise isn't worth the risk. So here we go again, onward and strong with some semblance of morals intact. Punk rock is an idea more than it was ever a sound.
