Am I a fan?: Anti-Flag was one of the first bands I heard when falling into punk. I still remember buying Terror State with it’s edited cover and the slip cover having a flyer with George W. Bush on it, saying One Term President.
The Gaslight Anthem - “I’da Called You Woody, Joe”
And I never got to tell him so I just wrote it down I wrapped a couple chords around it and I let it come out When the walls of my bedroom trembled around me This ramshackle voice over attack of a blues beat And a girl, on the excitement gang
And this was the sound of the very last gang in town As heard by my wild young heart like directions on a cold dark night Sayin’, “Let it out, let it out, let it out You’re doin’ all right.”
I found a bar that’s just outside the township line. I go there most every night. I drank my last paycheck dry and outside, a homeless man asks me for change and I look him straight in his eyes. He stops to apologize. Tells me god’s got a plan for me and that it’ll be alright. I didn’t know that I looked that pathetic.
Well, would you look at this. One of my favorite bands, The Holy Mess, puts up a pre-order of their third album, Comfort In The Discord. They also gave us one song to get pumped up about. Maybe worth driving across the boarder to see them again.
