if you hate yourself, make art. it passes time and helps to place the focus of who you are on what you’ve made rather than what you are made of. and in the process of hating yourself and making art, you might accidentally create something amazing and hate yourself less. if you hate yourself, don’t make money because it is too easy to measure. if you don’t hate yourself, stay very still and don’t do anything. you could fuck it up.
our last show was with the mighty Wild Child who also broke up that day. other bands played. autonomy from chicago, ruz with the little umlauts over the u, lumpy and the dumpers, naive sense and i think thats it. this band leech from okc wanted on the show but there were just too many bands.
there are still good bands in minneapolis but not a lot of hardcore bands. Lemonade is a new hardcore band that is pretty good. No Skin put out a cool record that no one cared about because their members arent cute enough or something. Cognitive Dissonance became Geiger Counter and it sounds like Extreme Noise Terror with some cool melodic Scandinavian parts. Condominium is nowhere to be found. Much Worse is still Much Worse, meaning theyre the weirdest people playing the weirdest side of hardcore.
there’s a band called Cat Fantasy that are pretty cool but i dont see them and their name makes me ignore them even though theyre definitely decent. Ataxxia is good. i dont know if Verminoze is a “good” band (cant recall listening to them recorded) but they rule. Disaggio is another hardcore band that i havent caught yet but seem worthwhile. Favela Rising are still around and i gotta remember to book them on some stuff.
then there’s like 80 really great bands that just arent hardcore bands. oh well. who cares. gonna listen to this GG King album again
