Just wanted to introduce myself. Hello I am Brian. Been listening to punk since about 1985 (wow...doesn't feel like that long ago). First things I heard were Frankenchrist and In God We Trust Inc by DK. Suicidal Tendencies first album and Damaged by Black Flag were shortly thereafter. Soon after that I got into UK punk and that led me to Anarcho Punk and Crust Punk. Being young as I was (11) when I first heard punk I didn't really catch on to the message behind the lyrics but I had found music that was as ugly and pissed off as I was. As I grew older I started to recieve the message the music had to offer and it has shaped who I am as an adult. I was extremely active in my local punk scene in the 90's. Played guitar in a few decent bands and a few shitty ones. Got to play shows with some of my favorite bands. But now that I am older and have more responsibilities I don't have the time to do much. Plus the punk scene where I live now is pretty bad with the exception of a few bands. Anyway so that's who and where I am. How are all of you?
