Welcome to the Soupbone

|I'm going to be a kiss-ass here for a second, so pardon me.|
A little over a year ago, while as a user reviewer, I stumbled upon a wonderful punk rock band from Flint, MI (home of Michael Moore) named The Swellers. The band consists of two brothers, Nick and Jonathan (both sincerely nice dudes), who thought up a good way of taking an expensive idea ... and making it free.
Like Say Anything's emo-icon Max Bemis (who charged $150 for a personalized song), the brothers paired up to write 15 songs about friends/fans for free (available to download on their PureVolume profile). They even wrote one for us, Absolutepunk.net, called "Be An Absolute Punk With Me" (download that gem for free on their AP.net profile).
I suggest you go and support these hard-working devils on the road and purchase their energetic debut, My Everest. I also put them Part II of our Absolute 100, so hopefully that increases your interest.
What a brown noser I am, right? Can't help it, considering these dudes write/perform my favorite brand of music and are regular guys who work their asses off to have fun & enjoy doing what they do (and do it well).
