    I’m going to admit to something that no sane, card-carrying Punk Rocker™ ever would. That’s how much I love you.

    You will never understand everything in the Rudimentary Peni discography. You could spend a lifetime examining and evaluating the shards in the band’s work, feeling like you are getting closer to a fundamental truth.

    By the time I was twelve years old—old enough to go and experience select things on my own, without parental supervision, but far too young to be out after 9 p.m. without it—I started getting a weekly allowance.

    In the real, empirically verifiable, corporeal universe that you and I inhabit, the American punk rock band Flag of Democracy formed in suburban Philadelphia in 1982 and, over the next three decades, made eight full-length albums plus a handful of EPs and compilation appearances.

    Chances are you haven’t heard of F.O.D. This is a good place to start.

    Maybe alienation is a strong word, but some Joyce Manor fans probably felt alienated by 2012’s Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired.

    With the sad news of Tommy Ramone’s passing at age 62 from complications related to bile duct cancer, which sounds like a particularly painful way to exit this mortal coil, all four original members of Ramones—Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy—are dead and gone. Literally, Ramones are dead.

    I’m sad.

    Cross-pollination between scenes is still pretty rare in this day and age. Because there are so many bands—and so many of them have “teams” of managers, publicists, tour managers, label owners, and booking agents—every perceived mistake can be deciminated, analyzed and overanalyzed by literally anyone at anytime. That doesn’t mean that these bands are 100% risk-averse, just that there are more people than ever who depend on their success or failure.

    Thing I wrote with the help of a lot of scene pals. Lemme know what you think.
