quote of the day

astrosa posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 3:30:22 pm
guys, tell me if you think this is just downright degrading or not.

ROSA " I MISSISSIPPI YOU " CD

full length CD made by some cute little kids from TX that play folky/country/punk music using a drum, a guitar, vioin and banjo. They stay up late, they make silly jokes, they will give you hugs. They are some tough little rascals. this is not childrens music by any means however. this is more suited for wiskey drinking knife punks and their drunken dogs to listen to while train hoping across the country. or cool DIY kids to listen to while they are waiting for the tea to cool down.

*ROSA "i mississippi you" full length. four cute little children from TX playing folk/country/punk. CD i don't have any MP3s up yet of the new cd but you can listen to this song (a live version) that is on the CD: milkcrates.


cute little children? tough little rascals? why would anybody want to buy this after reading the description? is it just me, or what?

robot_insurance posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 3:30:29 pm
oh, its a cd, not a 7". whatever.

eviromental youth crunch - we live to smash the family of bush cdep

bush may be alive and well in the white house, but this st augustine fl folk punk trio want him in the big house! that goes for jeb too! eco friendly folk punk in the vein of a more rockin this bike is a pipebomb or carrie nations. dance and clap along. then go plant some trees!

Straight out of the swammpy, musty waters of florida comes this 7 piece, they've been touring for years with their vegan powered bikes and have ate nothing but seaweed, they hate bush, they hate but they love you! check out Vegan Bike Squad 7" made by scraps of vegan goodies, check out their live set which includers members playing umbrellas, tin cans and other wacky creative instruments!

How does *anyone*, or any small group of people go about making even a small scratch in a massive global system (you choose the sytem)? It's not all that easy, and has as much to do with being in the right place when historical inertia touches down as anything. Changing individual behaviors is certainly a step toward changing bigger things, as long as people don't get too comfortable with their individualism.

Also: why do we not rag on apathetic bands for their apathy?

robot_insurance posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 3:47:26 pm

most folk punk seems to be ingrained with a much larger activist scene.
so what if you don't change the whole world? you can still affect your community. you can still affect other people. the a-political can eat shit.

you guys are going to get into the same points as veganism/vegetarianism. no you can't change everyone's opinions but you can enlighten some people or get some people to take action. you certainly can't change everyone, but any step in the right direction is a good step. maybe one of those kids will end up building a shelter for battered women, etc? surely they can't save every woman, but they can help some and that is a good first step. yeah.

not to say that these kids really do anything like that, but you never know.

Punks who hug are punks that love. Three kids playing the anarchist tunes that both hippies and punks can hold hands and enjoy together on a variety of instruments such as buckets, trees, and bunnies.

i wasn't saying folk punk was changing everything, more so responding to the remark that people are just a small speck.
but we could go that way. say there is a large folk punk scene somewhere which we can generalize has the stereotypical folk punk dogma of anarchism, veganism, equality, dumpstering, etc. say that effects other kids, and a large community rises off of that and these kids do things like co-ops and gardens in such. that is affecting the community, they become more open to the general public, become quasi-institutionalized so it could very well transcends groups and time. ie: look at spaces like abc no rio (not-related to folk punk, but activism entangled within a music scene). this place has been aroung for years, and has welcomed other generations of kids and changed their outlook.

the whole argument of 'if you're not gonna change the world, don't even bother' just seems so defeatist and silly.

i'm pretty conflicted on this to tell the truth. because i honestly do like a lot of the music but i honestly do hate a lot of the other things associated with it. i'm not an anarchist, i'm not very political and i'm not cutesy. reading descriptions like the ones posted above make me want to disassociate myself from any of it. i like to think that the stuff i've worked with is the good stuff from the genre, if it can even be considered part of it at all. patrick from hot new mexicans called it "jump rope music" and i think that sums it up. most of these people are amazing and nice people and i'm glad they're having fun and it doesn't really matter who hates what they do. tastes are subjective. on a related note, i think there are a few bands that get lopped into this and don't deserve it. carrie nations don't really have anything folky about their sound and even broke up because one of them refused to go on the plan-it-x tour and called it a waste of time.

delicate hammers posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 7:25:29 pm
I like Defiance Ohio, Operation Cliff Clavin, and Max Levine, thus I like Plan-It-X, although I'm not a fan of all of their stuff. And the fact that they offer five dollar CDs is pretty cool. I'm not an anarchist or a hippie or an overly hyper folk punk kid.

Mambo<305 posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 7:40:20 pm
meh, i hate how term folk punk.

i like a big percentage of PIX bands. even the cutesy ones. i like cutesy shit every now and then. and i don't even really mind the band descriptions. they're somtimes funny and usually silly. they don't mind poking fun at themselves somtimes.

i don't really mind the way some kids smell. as long as they haven't been rolling around in shit all day, i'm usually cool with it.

and lastly, pictures of metal dudes trying to look tough and scary are fucking stupid.

so, in conclusion, i'm a sucker for PIX bands.

"Folk Punk" is probably the best thing going on in Punk Rock right now, or for the last few years. It's really the only "scene" or "community" I'd like to be involved with...there's really no pretentions, you won't be judged, people are actually NICE, etc. Plus, I have more fun at a show with "Folk Punk" bands playing than I ever could at shows with Emo/Hardcore/Indie/etc bands.

i disagree. the "folk punk" scene does not lack pretentions. you will be judged. when i'm eating a hamburger in front of twenty vegan punk kids, i'm being judged. when i'm driving a car instead of riding a bike, i'm being judged. when i have taken a shower and am wearing clean clothes, i am being judged. that being said, i love all the kids that i know affiliated with that scene to death, but i still feel looked down upon in many situations.

Maybe around your parts, but I go to shows with some friends of mine who by no means fit the "Folk Punk" stereotype (all of them eat meat, all of them drive cars, all of them shower everyday), and when talking with other kids who do meet up with that stereotype, they've never come down on my friends for their morals (or lack thereof). Much of my views go along with those common to kids in the "Folk Punk" scene (I am vegan, I do bike instead of drive), but I definitely shower everyday, and I definitely dress like a friggin' yuppie a good amount of the time. I don't harp on my friends about their meat-eating or car-driving or anything like that.

rich posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 9:10:14 pm
i don't really know. i really do love all the kids associated with that scene around here, but that's how i feel sometimes. i also ride my bike everyday (drive maybe once a week) and haven't showered in two weeks, but when i do, am i supposed to feel bad? there is just something about the scene as a whole that doesn't feel honest to me. it feels like a lot of people are trying too hard to be cutesy and always positive. life isn't just about friends, burritos, and bike rides. i feel terrible saying this sort of stuff, because as i said before, the punk kids i know are some of the sweetest people i've met, but i feel more that way about the scene as a whole. i could definitely be wrong though.

snickersnicker posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 9:17:39 pm

I agree completely. It is kind of annoying when people try too hard (at anything), but I find that those types make up a small percentage of those involved with the "Folk Punk" scene compared to, say, pretentious wanky fucks in the Noise scene, or depressed melodramatic types in the Emo/Screamo/etc scene, or toughguy bro-magnons in the Hardcore scene. Even then, cutesy/posi is waaay better than tough or melodramatic or pretentious or whatever. And anything is better than jaded/negi/defeated.

rich posted this on April 24th, 2005 @ 9:20:23 pm
i don't know. jaded and negative vs. overly cutesy is tough fight.

I WAS ABOUT AN INCH AWAY FROM MAKING THIS THREAD.

seriously, i think folk punk could be the worst thing to happen to music since i dont know what. save for a few legit bands, this is a fucking slap in the face to anyone who is actually taking part in punk music. the other day someone played me a band called Johnny Hobo and the Train cars or something. it was probably the most revolting shit ever. Hey guys, lets be a bunch of fucking priveleged white brats, steal, dumpster, etc so we can push forward our "movement" when in actuality, our "movement" is nothing more than a counter productive, whose carhartts are more blacker and whose fucking nalgene bottle has seen worse days.

i went to Plan It X festival with a friend because I was bored. Now, i do genuinly enjoy Erik Petersen's music, but i find bands like Rosa to be revolting. What the fuck is with this talentless, unprogressive, psuedo-folk nonsense that tries so hard to be sincere the only thing that it possibly can come off as is insincere. And whats with the fucking nonstop smiling and psuedo positivity? i dont give a fuck if you ride a bike or not. the fact that all they sing about is bike riding, and dumpstering shows that its more of a fucking joke on people that actually do that because of lack of resources. jesus i hate this shit.

"Folk Punk" is probably the best thing going on in Punk Rock right now, or for the last few years.

are you serious?

i'm good friends with people in some of the bands mentioned, specifically One Reason, Environmental Youth Crunch and Defiance Ohio, and it makes me sad that people think that sincere, politically motivated punk rock made by good people is a bad thing. i think its funny that you kids think "an eternal patch in a quilt that hangs on the northern door" are better lyrics than "we could be much bigger than this with no forces to force us to decide."

but yeah, this trend got too ridiculous too fast. see the band Evil Robot Us' for evidence of how derivative and annoying folk punk can be. regardless, i think there's something romantic about it. but one can only weather so many bad Against Me impressions.

I think most of this stuff is actually good and goes more closely with anarchist principles than most punk rock.

I can't believe I said this. Once I got deeper into this stuff, it for the most part makes me sick. I like Folk, I like punk, but for the most parts these bands really turn both into bastardized versions. For exceptions I will say that defiance, ohio, ghost mice, and erik petersen are actually enjoyable the rest of this scene needs to go away.

i do, but i'm no folk punk. the bands on pix that i enjoy are carrie nations, abe froman, the bananas, japanther, soophie nun squad, etc. the label gets a bad rap when it's actually pretty diverse. i even like a decent amount of folk punk i just hate the term and the connotation. more or less, my first post in this thread sums it up from my standpoint

Radical Ruckus posted this on Apr 24th, 2005 at 07:19:04 pm
i'm pretty conflicted on this to tell the truth. because i honestly do like a lot of the music but i honestly do hate a lot of the other things associated with it. i'm not an anarchist, i'm not very political and i'm not cutesy. reading descriptions like the ones posted above make me want to disassociate myself from any of it. i like to think that the stuff i've worked with is the good stuff from the genre, if it can even be considered part of it at all. patrick from hot new mexicans called it "jump rope music" and i think that sums it up. most of these people are amazing and nice people and i'm glad they're having fun and it doesn't really matter who hates what they do. tastes are subjective. on a related note, i think there are a few bands that get lopped into this and don't deserve it. carrie nations don't really have anything folky about their sound and even broke up because one of them refused to go on the plan-it-x tour and called it a waste of time.

full length CD made by some cute little kids from TX that play folky/country/punk music using a drum, a guitar, vioin and banjo. They stay up late, they make silly jokes, they will give you hugs. They are some tough little rascals. this is not childrens music by any means however. this is more suited for wiskey drinking knife punks and their drunken dogs to listen to while train hoping across the country. or cool DIY kids to listen to while they are waiting for the tea to cool down.

folk punk is worse than indie in my book.


This was my favorite line in the entire thread. Looks like you better trade in those black heart procession records.

However, I couldn't agree more with the title of this thread. On a side note, I don't get why kids don't take showers. Isn't the point of taking showers to stay clean so you don't get sick? The counter argument to this would probably be like "hey but showers are a waste of water"...well its either wasting water or letting the health care companies get richer, either way the system is ultimately fucking you over! You lose crust kids!

Folk punk for me is kind of like an elefant fucking me in the ass. I know the general idea of what it's like or what it might be like, but I haven't really tried it to find out if I like it or not, but if I'd try it, I in fact would bloody dislike it.

the song skinnyfists is thinking about is "Mouseteeth" by This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, but those lyrics are much less corny in context. They're not meant to be taken the way you're interpreting them.

some one PLEASE send me this song. i didnt believe him.

mouseteeth doesn't quite sound like the song i'm talking about. i guess it's an easy mistake. they were actually singing those lyrics in like a chorus

Erik Peterson, Evil Robot Us, and all of the "Riot Folk" stuff is terrible


erik petersen is incredible. i don't know how you can say he's bad after listening to more than 2 or 3 songs.

evil robot us' never impressed me on any of their recordings, but when i saw them live they played without a drummer and i thought it was pretty incredible.

that riot folk shit though, i agree it's awful. tom frampton has an obnoxious ass voice but i think the songs he writes are pretty good. the other dudes on that label are just all-around terrible.

and yeah, i definitely like folk punk. not all of it, but i'm definitely into defiance ohio, ghost mice, this bike is a pipebomb and rosa. madeline is also pretty awesome, but the other bands really don't do much for me.

folk punk has some good bands but it inspires the highest ratio of preachers to musicians ever.

for every person in that scene who can write music, or can actually be a functional human being with a decent sense of activism , there are about a hundred people with preaching agendas who believe that showers are the enemy, and think that being a bum is awesome, disagree with education, etc etc etc. narrowminded fucks. who make it very easy to disappreciate the music.

so i guess i like this bike, carrie nations a lot, madeline, the door-keys, and japanther. but i wouldn't consider carrie nations, japanther, or the doorkeys as folk.

and it is the ridiculous kids in this scene that fuck it up

mouseteeth is definitely the song you are talking about.

any thing ive ever heard called "folk punk" had very little elements of folk, or punk, just mostly crap.
