While I know a lot of the folks on this board are a bit beyond the loud and fast and louder and faster music thing, for anyone looking for a surprisingly decent little punk band to listen to when feeling a bit bitter I was tipped to Much The Same (muchthesame.com) and was surprised at the fact that not only did they not suck but had a couple of songs which were kinda catchy. They work themselves up into a pretty good lather and are solid live. I don't normally dig the whole punky thing, but they impressed me. So go give their best song a listen (artists.mp3s.com) and maybe even buy the album (a-frecords.com)
Heh. I dig on the fast and loud, louder and faster type of music. I've been listening mostly to the hard core bands on Jade Tree since hip hop turned into a carbon copy of the "indie rawk -> alternative" scene.
I'm checking out their stuff right now. You always gave me good recs during my first go around here at the 'Ville.
Oops...this just in off the CNN wires: Hasselhoff has been busted again for suspicion of DUI (Yahoo! News UK/Ireland, via Reuters) in Southern California, say police. He checked himself into Betty Ford back in 2002, CNN sez. (EDIT: Linkified!)
