My Blog__ BOY BANDS YOU WILL NEVER, EVER BE AS GOOD AS

Don't even try it, dudes. You can't beat this. You just can't. This shit is historical.

B-LINES (Vancouver, B.C.)

Ryan Dyck is a polite, record store clerk by day and a raging, string bean lunatic by night. B-Lines play fast, tight punk that makes me want to viciously smash everything in sight while screaming, "I can't believe how fucking happy I am!" It's really confusing. They are what all young punk boys should aspire to be.

ST. DAD (Gainesville, Florida)

St. Dad are no longer a band anymore, because Gus (singer) moved to Boston, Matty (bass) went home to Philadelphia, Riley (drums) moved to Cincinnati and Arlington (guitar) started a new band in Florida. Together they did tons of drugs and wrote complicated, interesting punk that made Gus's sad, straight-forward lyrics funny and frighteningly real. I wish I could write like Gus does, but I haven't been through the foul shit he has. The best part about St. Dad's first 7 inch is that they thought they were making a garage record, but the only thing "garage" about it is that they recorded the record in one (kind of).  Playing with them in 2010 was one of my favorite show's of any tour I have ever done.

CRAZY SPIRIT (Manhattan, NYC)

Crazy Spirit are a bunch of hicks from NYC who put on, what I believe, a punk show is supposed to be. This video does not do them justice. However, it does their hair some favors. Right now, they are blowing up as big as their farts.

POLLUTION (Brooklyn, NYC)

Pollution are no longer a band which makes me want to hole up and cry for days. Their first release is still one of my favorite records even after listening to it a million times. When we toured with them in 2010, they turned our guitar player Kenny into a real man just by sitting next to him and breathing near his body.
