Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms has written a blog about getting old in punk-rock. Or something like that ... my own old age has led to me having to squint to read the text on the screen.
That’s why people were so blown away when a band like the Starting Line made these songs that resonated with so many people. “That kid’s only fucking 17!” motherfuckers were saying, and that’s why when Nomeansno put out the spectacular All Roads Lead To Ausfahrt a few years back, people were like, “DAAAAMN! These old ass men have not lost a SINGLE FUCKING STEP!!! They’re still THE BEST!” (go listen to the song Mr. In Between if you doubt the fury of the mighty, unbreakable power of Nomeansno, and consider that it was composed and performed by dudes in their 60’s!)

Metropole didnt knock me off my socks...yet...But everything else he's touched is great!!
