Up da punx, yah?

Actually an album, but who’s counting?  Enjoy with friends over euchre and beers for best results.

Happy Thursday!  We’re back this week with a classic from Walls of Jericho, one of my all time favorite hardcore bands (from Detroit!  with a lady singer!) and their great tune, Fixing Broken Hearts!

A song that never got much traction, but I still get it stuck in my head at random times.

From the opening bars, I loved this song, and not only because it featured so heavily in one of my all time favorite movies, SLC Punk.  Repetitive, dirty, unapologetic, this is everything punk is supposed to be!  Plus, Flea is in this.  FLEA!

Today, a reminder of the very first Riot Fest I ever went to.  Saw Cock Sparrer at the Metro in Chicago and was totally blown away, even though I only knew one of their songs…the song below.  Happy Thursday!

 

Now, the Unseen!  No intro required!

I’ve been in a rut lately, and listening to all my old favorites, and up popped Ben Kweller!  I had the pleasure of meeting him back in the day doing concerts; he travelled to the great white north, and was super nice and gracious.  He told us that rock and roll is a really tough business, and if you can do anything else, you should.  ❤

Anyway, this is still one of my favorite love songs of all time.  Enjoy it on this beautiful January Thursday!  🙂

I have been revisiting a lot of the music I liked in high school and college, and I was an unabashed emo kid FOR SURE, even though I never would have admitted it at the time.  Too sensitive and too focused to be a punk, emo was my shit.

Thursday was my all time favorite band for at least 5-6 years, and this song, off their (in my opinion) best album, Full Collapse, is my all time favorite song of theirs.  It’s not as catchy as others, it’s a bit more on the metal/hardcore side (foreshadowing) but it’s SO GOOD, especially the very last breakdown.  Yell along and be transported back to those sweet, sweet days in 2004 when Thursday ruled the roost.
