I'm surprised they were allowed to be any bit aggressive.
Punk has REALLY died down since I was younger.

Now I'm not from some little surburban town with a fake punk scene, I'm from Montreal and we had a WILD scene.
We helped a lot of good causes while having a great time.

Ocasionally I'll go to a local show now if I happen to be downtown at night, and its just not the same at all.
All the kids are straight and hardly move.. they dont know how to have fun.


RIP punk
(I tried to find the one with the intro from the album but no luck)

thanks for the song , unfortunately unviewable in germany due to umg(actually , gema . find the difference) claiming territorial pissings .what you said about kids at shows just standing around like [insert your favourite animal here] , preferably recording everything on a 500$ phone instead of slowly gently oozingly grooving to hardcore punk music ... man i had the exact same feeling during the few occasions i got to experience live music . true story .

I dont know this law in Germany that doesn't let you listen to the song but it does sound like stupid law because I'm in Canada and can listen to as much Oxymoron as I want lol.

Yeah thats the other thing about shows today, all the kids are using their phones.
I remember back in the day there were very few kids with phones and the ones that did have phones didn't go to punk shows and they were the type of kids you would meet in an alley for like 5 seconds.
Then later on I remember one of my friends getting a phone and it was just mind-boggling to me why one would need a telephone at a concert.

Things sure have changed. Now we live in a world of tech-zombies who are being monitored and then cops who want to silence us until we have to take it all to the digital world where no one gets hurt or experiences REAL life.

yeah , true punk rock music wouldn't fit into our modern world imo .
just look at the charts oh man its getting more and more ridiculous every day ,
i wish i had been a teen in the 60s , 70s , 80s or 90s but the time after that really seems to .. lack something .

Punk is alive and well here in the UK

Lot's of the old bands touring and recording new music.
And there's plenty of decent young bands about.

And we all know Punk is much more than a Mohican and a razor blade...it's a state of mind and attitude.

Punk's Not Dead!

My husband is an Old School Punk, he hung out in Toronto and some of the stories he has told me are amazing. His Idol is John Lydon he saw him a couple of times when he was younger touring with PIL.

I called him over to check this thread out and he immediately knew the song and told me that the Toronto gang would head up to Montreal at time and vice versa to see the shows.

He also agrees with you about kids these days, a couple of weeks ago we went to see a Slipknot tribute band and after watching the kids just standing around he just dove in and started his own little group slam-dancing.

I really didn't know much about the Punk scene until I met him, had we met when we were younger we might not even have met, growing up in the 70's I was more on the hold over flower child scene listening to Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix Janis Joplin etc.

interesting point , maybe one could say as different as various youth cultures may appear at first , hippies , punks , ravers , junglist people , hiphopping bunnies , goa-festival attendants , well they all do embrace some sort of common concept which i perceive as being the creation of an environment far from the regular establishment where people can forget about all the troubles in the world and just be happy and frikin dance their butts off for a few hours.
speaking of values , morals or visual appearences all these youth cultures vary greatly though . or maybe not

Thats kool. Yeah punk rockers always have the best stories

And since he probably doesn't remember all of them all the time, I'm sure you get to hear a good "new" story once in a while.

I never got to go to Toronto for a punk show but I heard they had a great scene there and I always remember meeting people here that came down here from Toronto for the summer.
Certain bands like St-Catherine's and Red Alert would play here more often and probably cheaper shows.

Kool on him for trying to rile those zombies up.
I gave it a shot at a Blessed By a Broken Heart (lol not my choice there, chick wanted to go) show.
The kids looked terrified LOL and I thought I was going to break them, they're so skinny and pale.

that is just straight uplifting to hear , thank you , i feel envy for you even though i know i shouldnt , because where i live well people get really excited if a "slipknot cover band" comes along and are much more inclined to engage in aforementioned passive behaviour (coverbands , especially of only one particular band i find extreeeeemely lame . not always , but quite often they lack something a "musician" should have imo) nothing compared to videos of live shows by bands like black flag or bad brains or some "rougher" nirvana songs . people be jumpin all over each other highly inebriated while still displaying the common sense of not hurting each other . or at least they try ...
what are your experiences on the matter ?
that's the kind of vibe i got from watching oldskool punk vids (and continue to get), they've always been a major inspiration for me even though my language might reflect ive been listening to too much hip-hop as of lately

my skin isn't tanned even though i sometimes write the way i would imagine a person of african descent writing .
racism is one of the things i hate the most about us humans , nothing in this text was meant to be racist in any way whatsoever . i see this website mostly as training for testing out various lyrical styles and the reactions each style gets .

peace brothers and sisters were all in this together

Yeah I know what a kick drum. According to hubby he saw Trent Reznor when he first started out and from his description he played something like that along with recorded back ups.

He actually started his own band back then and people would camp out on his front lawn. Sounds like it was fun. He has some of the tunes recorded so I've gotten to hear them.

Hehe and yeah I know what you mean about older than the internet.


On as side note my hubby originally was from the UK he's a Geordie
