I just wanted to log in and say I've met Matt a few times with The Uninspired, and I have to say he's one of the most legit dudes I've met in music and while it really sucks that he's leaving such an awesome ska band, I'm stoked that he's making moves and doing whats right for him. Good luck!
Surprised they kept him around this long anyway. Lord knows that band wants to be Kid Dynamite in the worst way.
I'm not quite sure what you mean. There are plenty of bands we rip off (Rehasher, Lifetime, every pop-punk band ever), but Kid Dynamite, while one of my favorite bands of all time, isn't really one of them I don't think.
Matt is a good dude...he'll resurface with a vengeance. My question is, who is going to take over on vocals? No offense to Reed, but I don't want WATU to sound like a faster Red City Radio (amazing band!) with horns. So I'm curious to see what develops. As a Philly native and a DIEHARD Kid Dynamite fan, I can't help but be embarrassed for the dude who wrote they want to be/sound like KD. The Fuck dude, The Fuck. There is absolutely NO similarity between KD and WATU. Seriously, that hurts those of us who know KD, and HxC/Punk, well, REAL HxC/Punk. Good luck WATU, you have my full support in the progression/direction you take, just put out some new material sometime soon. Great Leaps Forward is phenominal, but a new 7 in'' or Digital EP in the upcoming months would be much appreciated. GO PHILLIES! April 1 can't come soon enough!
Reed....that Red City Radio comment was a compliment bro, trust me, in no way was I slighting your vocals...I love 'em...my suggestion was to bring someone in who's vocals are comparable to Matt's...obviously not him, which blows, but I support both you guys and Matt's ventures in whatever direction you decide to take...much love...get Cabrera off the sauce, and in the lineup, I'd love to see a Jimmy Leyland and Uncle Charlie Manuel WS in 2011!
