STAY PUNK SCUM

8 Mile blast radius of a hard-contrast Detroit hits the feedback. Dear Matt, I'm sorry to hear that punk may not feel progressive enough anymore and wish it was possible to empathize. I'm not sorry that punks keep noise pollution current using some of the best weapons they manage to acquire or salvage from whatever gutters or black holes they call home. They're not sorry about the language they communicate it with, either. Regardless of grammar or audible tolerance, the dialogue won't change because war creates poverty, the state creates war, etc, etc. Channel that through as much distortion as you want, at whatever volumes you're willing to risk your gear through, play it as fast as you can while shouting barely coherent outbursts of confusion/anger and this is the Scum LP. Yes, you can guess exactly what you're getting into by the jacket alone, but in over-saturated "markets" it's pretty nice finding a certain pedigree that will make you support a good record store somewhere. Especially when that support comes as a slew of manic depressive dis-rhythm & chainsaw guitars with enough clarity to swirl away into a psychadelic nightmare solo. Maybe vanguard solitary typeface placements or abstract doodle feelings do that for some, but war will still create poverty and peace is just another market. When evolution changes that, maybe Scum and all their obvious predecessors will find new weapons and fight "the good fight". In the mean time, enjoy 12 tracks of the old weapons still fighting against "the good fight".

NEW NOISE



CRIME DESIRE "LIVE AT STANDARDS" C44

DISCLAIMER

without the ability to understand all elements of all lifestyles, one finds themselves in a similar position of difficulty with how they assume, impose or empower, consciously or not, the inner-working and defining characteristics of those very same elements or lifestyles. in a continuing pattern, knowing how to support the discontinuation of such assumption, imposition or empowerment, consciously or not, is very difficult to suggest or apply. such difficulties living so close to where we try to make ourselves comfortable can only exacerbate our frustrations with how to communicate those aspects of our pasts or futures in an effort to inspire the ease of such discontinuation.

there will always be mountains in the ways of what we define as progress for ourselves. while the long road of climbing is daunting in it's insecurity, the more often we really inspect our routes can only make us confident in knowing more about how we travel and what we will try to avoid, than simply where we might be trying to go.

sometimes those things to avoid are not easy or test every bit of our patience and finding those comfortable living situations requires coping we might also not know how to properly communicate. please be courteous to those making such efforts to be socially confident as they may find their own.
