Thee Indiana Punk Listing: Now 100% more lo-fi!!

What's up. Yeah. Nothing. This is Scottie from the Retreads, and your mang on tha intranet. Does anyone ever even look at this site? Just to prove me wrong, email me and I'll send you an all-Indiana, all punk rock, all star cd. No shitting. First 10 people get one. Oct 27th, 2003....

What, doncha like nerd porn?

On a need to know basis, you need to know this shit...
Straight offa Glen Danzig's christmas card list is the mighty HELLWINKLE!!!!!. From Muncie and/or Elwood, this band has absolutely no Klan affiliation and is the best punk-metal power trio in the fucking state. Coz Motorhead is from England.

Although they broke up and reformed and broke up and reformed, here's a shitty old site for those guys we all useta hate, SICKO AND THE ABNORMALS. Presently, they're all swell guys and in the Slurs, America Owns the Moon, Mighty John Waynes, et al, but this is the band that retrospect still makes me love to hate. Like a blowjob with teeth.

If you don't like the Pogues, fuck off. The SODS don't like the Pogues. They LOVE the Pogues. So they don't have to fuck off. Fort Wayne roots punk.

The LURKING CORPSES believe in all that is evil, scary, naughty, and loud. I just made that up, though, but they sure as fuck look like they'd subscribe to such a platform. They play horror punk metal. And are from the Fort. Aaaarrrgggh + Splat.

The FUGLEES are a power pop band that doesn't lose sight of the real reasons fer rocking. I believe those are "fucking" and "FUCKING." Elements of Cheap Trick, the Romantics, and Benny Hill. Not Benny Hinn.

Reverend Pepe and the Pews look like some real fucking sinners and perhaps were in Broken (RIP). Nice looking site and a potentially marketable gimmick. But do they rock? Would you ask a bird how it flies? A fish how it swims? A priest how he molests? It's because they were born to do it. Bend over and say "Hallelujah."

Even though the ska-punk craze of 95-98 is long gone, the Malcontents are here to stay. Lafayette has kicked out some decent bands over the years (Dow Jones and the Industrials, Squirtgun, Brass Knuckle Boys, Guns n Roses), and perhaps the Malcontents will one day join those hallowed ranks. Until then, oggle their bass player and wonder how many rude boys it takes to tie a skinny tie.
