I suppose I slowly started descending into punk and hardcore after Nirvana disappeared and was replaced by the glut of empty nineties commercialism, which never related to me and still doesn’t. From there went to countless concerts, played in bands and so on. Too much to recount, I guess.
There are a ton of bands I’d like to recommend, but maybe just the top weirdest/underrated ones on my list:
The Punchlines. Amazing band with only one album, called “It Ain’t Funny,” where every track is literally giving you the punchline before the song starts. The funniest thing no one else around me likes and I annoy people with constantly.
Math the Band. I just…love this band so much. Bunch of weirdos who grew up playing synths badly and make that the most nonsensical punk sound ever.
The Love Below. Bunch of old outcasts sick with hardcore, so they make their own, because fuck it. I just love how flippant they are. Counter the counterculture, why not. And yes, they just took the name from the Outkast album, because fuck it, again.
Merchant Ships. A bunch of fourteen year-olds with more talent in their little pinky than I’ll ever accrue in my entire life. They somehow distilled teen angst to a crystalline form and it makes me so damn envious.
I’ll stop now.
