Steve Is Taller, But I Get More Play

Posted by: Russ Hockenbury (07/01/06)
Hey everyone out there in Ap.net land. My name is Russ Hockenbury and I've just been hired on here at Absolutepunk to do reviews of the hardcore/metal variety. Though, I'll try to sneak in some offbeat indie stuff for all you NY/LA folk too, don't worry.

For the past four years, I served as Editor of www.upbeetmusic.com. There I reviewed anything and everything, along with writing the wildly popular (in my mind) Eisley Darringer stories. Yes, I'm that cool.

Check out my first three reviews as an Ap.net staff member at the links below:

New ReviewsJena Berlin - Passion Waits As The Program Keeps Going
Enlow - The Recovery
The Theater Fire - Everybody Has A Darkside

When you say "hired" does that really mean you get paid for your reviews?

Congrats on the sweet gig, Russ. Looking forward to your work here.

It's funny your name is Russ and your avatar is Fenix TX, because when I went to see Fenix TX live one time, there was this kid who came on-stage with one of those belt buckles that you can put messages on and he was dressed goofy, and Will made fun of him in front of everyone. Random memory.

Now, it's Drew Danburry. You have no stories about him, do you?!?
