Hi. How're you doing? I'm from Indonesia and I'm new here. I joined an anarcho-punk band as back-vocalist in 2003, when I was 28. Yes it's a bit late to be a punk on my age, but I see an advantage since it keeps me young. Not physically, of course. But in mind and soul. Our band's name is Black Boots and we rarely played because we live separately in different cities and country. Once every 5 or more years we meet in a city when we used to go to college together and had a show, or make an album if we could manage our time. We have family and children, as myself is a single mom with two kid. also occupy ourselves for a living. Three of my band mates are artists/painters, one is a musician for a major label band, the other one keeps survive with his own distro, while I myself is a writer. Anarcho-punk is welcome and accepted in here. Yes the scenes already changed but some high-school kids still put their interested in anarcho-punk. We used to have a small quarrel with other punks from the other city, they said they didn't like political punks. But as far I know it's basically about why they were less popular than us. We were an art-college students and perhaps the other street-punks underestimated us for didn't recognize what's the point of being a punk because we didn't live on the street (I tried some couple times but it's hard). But, I think it doesn't matter. We recognize anarchism and punk as ways to express our ideas about injustice, corrupt government, environmental issue, etc., and we're not really straight-edge (even if we're hardcore-punk band) actually. We want to have as many folks as we can to talk and share ideas about scene, music, politics or anything. Because it's better for us to make friends than enemies, isn't it? Thanks for reading.
