OK,sorry,that was a bit mean,i take it back! My finding humour in the "scene" of my old hometown isn't just making fun of hicks that don't know Tears For Fears ain't punk,it's more about how it manages to limp along and continue to exist in a vacuum despite itself!
I know you guys have been "keeping it real" (ugh,again,sorry!) for years,specifically your Little House-era posse,having to find the most creative places for shows and definitely not taking it for granted when a band does come thru town to play ! I know what it's like to have to find places for shows to happen down there,and i'll always have respect for you guys for sticking around, doing SOMETHING and at least trying!
That said though,i do have to flip you Coast kids a lot of shit for having some pretty horrible taste in music! That's the one constant that's been around ever since i was a little shit and had horrible taste in music myself! Y'all down there need to know that MTV (and even MTV2,Gawd forbid!) is not the path to Punk Rebellion or even Rock n'Roll Salvation! You should be lucky to have Kajun SS and Die Rotzz an hour away from your Little,Big and Mid-Sized houses,and these guys would prolly play for practically nothing except beer for the chance to rock the 'Port (i know King Louie is a big fan of Gulfport,i hear he's over there a good bit on weekends!) ,it's just a matter of setting it up!
Lynn,i'm pretty glad you found this Board and that I'm Not A Hot Dog played that show in Memphis! it's good to see some Coast action beginning to circulate and see some folks appreciate it... it does a legacy good! Prepare to enter a world full of music that doesn't suck... if you ever check this website out again that is! :)
