I *heart* punk rock

With so much musical input these days, and trying to suck it all in, it's easy to forget stuff you haven't listened-to in awhile. Man, there's so much music that never made the transition from tapes to digital; gotta get one of those tape-to-mp3 deals. lately, I've really been into unearthing early early heavy metal (black sabbath, budgie, some others I've discovered), "distilled" metal (3 Inches of Blood, Wolf), old reggae/ska, old blues, et alia. It's been easy to forget how good punk rock is. Sure, some of it is nostalgia, but honestly, soul-fortifying. Subhumans, Dead Kennedys, Still Little Fingers, Conflict, Youth Brigade, the Misfits, Black Flag, the Fixtures, Social Distortion. I took this pic of the wonderful band the Epoxies.
