    Hi My names Andy but i go by "Matsi" its black foot for "peace maker". I'm an anarchist I've read Proudhon,Bakunin,Goldman,Berkman. by the way if you guys could recommend any anarchist writers it will be very appreciated.

    I'm from California,the valley they call it the worlds fruit basket or something like that. Theres a lot of agriculture going on over here. its like the great Woody Guthrie Said back in the great depression "california is a garden of eden...A paradise to live in or see,but believe it or not.you won't find it so hot if you ain't got the do re mi".

    I'm a native american my family is from a small indian pueblo. My Grandfather first came to the U.S to work as brasero during ww2. my father has worked in the fields for most of his life. I myself have worked Picking fruit Pruning and Thinning under the blazing sun of the west. I don't dress in Doc Martins,Spikes,patches or have a mohawk...,but i do love punk music.i love the energy in it,the meaning in the lyricism,the optimistic hope,the unapologetic criticism of this fucked society,and the zero tolerance for bullshit and lies.

    My mother used to be a teacher in the poverty stricken region of Oaxaca,being a teacher there means traveling very long distances to teach a couple of kids who grew up speaking a native dialect how to read and write in Spanish. since the Mexican government could give to shits about some remote far off indian village in the mountains. any ways my mother helped me identify oppression at a very young age with stories of the Spanish conquest and government repression of our community. what im trying to say is im not to trustful of government or organized religion...

    As for my username...its not meant to be taken literal.its an oxymoron. it says what i think of modern day pop music.that being rap,rock,metal what ever it may be. I'm of the thought that if music hasn't communicated anything to you it has failed... :ecouteurs: I listen to anarcho punk,punk,oi, \m/ punk folk and folk. I'm always looking for new music recommendations. so if you have any please post them. thanks!

    I don't play any instruments :( , but i would want to learn to play some of my favorite Ochs/Guthrie songs.

    I found this forum while trying to download some anarcho punk bands. ps music recommendations plz!!!

    Hey Matsi! I am also residing in the great valley and listen to punk and all that centered around it. If you check out my blog I post up there what I am currently listening to. The address for it is www.ear-stress.blogspot.com. If you don't mind me asking, what part of the valley do you reside in? Take care-John

    What an intro. Welcome! Have you ever read any Kropotkin?

    I live in up in the Yosemite foothills, by the way. A few hours away from the valley.

    Yosemite foothills?! Like Mariposa,Sonora or Oakhurst? I live about an hour from all of these in Modesto. I go backpacking and day hiking a lot.

    Bienvenido Matsi, I'm sure you are familiar with Los Crudos, if not give them a listen...and don't forget to read Malatesta and Ricardo Flores Magon!

    Ha! I am up in Sonora all the time. A good friend of mine lives in Columbia and works at the tea house/bakery there. Back in 96-99 Sonora had a kick ass venue called the Borderline Warehouse. It was the first place I went to punk shows. I saw many awesome bands there like Citizen Fish,Angry Samoans and even some funny not so great bands like the vandals, AFI and screw 32. I don't remember the bands names from Sonora, but there were a few and they would come down to Modesto and play shows with us. I saw Born/Dead in Jamestown at the Rawhide a few years back and it was absolutely bizarre because the week before the show I saw them play in Austin at Chaos in Tejas and then to see them play in a hick bar for 10 punks and 100 hicks was pretty odd. Anyway, I could ramble on and on. Do you know of any bands in Sonora now? Modesto pretty much has no punk scene. Everyone moved away.

    I was a toddler in 1996, haha. Didn't wind up living here until 2005 or so.
    Ha, there's totally bands down here. Now they almost always play at this bad ass little venue called The Gypsy Shack. It's down in Jamestown. Folk punk is really a big deal around here; C.A.F., Canyon Fox... there's a few that aren't folk punk, for sure. False Freedom is a pretty prominent one. Their shows are always a blast. Shows are practically always free, too.
    It's not a particularly huge scene or anything, but it exists. I wouldn't say that I'm particularly "in" it, either. I mostly just do my thing, go to shows now and then, laugh, mosh, have a good time.

    thanks for the recommendations, and the link. I admire Spain's Anarchists they had the courage to fight for their convictions.

    Gracias Mar, yeah I've heard that band although i didn't like their music all to much. keep in mind that i only listed to two of their songs so i might have not given them a chance. could you recommend a Los Crudos track you really like? I swear i'll listen to it.

    Yo tenia entendido que Ricardo Magon era un Marxista, no supe que fue Anarquista. nunca había escuchado el nombre de Malatesta . En fin muchas gracias por el comentario camarada. se te agradece! :ecouteurs:
