I never listened to Silverstein and always assumed they were fggts, so I was very surprised to hear about their upcoming album. It’s called “Short Songs!”, and half will be original, fast hardcore songs under 90 seconds- pretty surprising in its own right. The other half will be covers of bands including Dead Kennedys, NOFX, Descendents, Green Day, Gob, and (wait for it) ORCHID!
- LOL @ that Canadian accent– “it’s BEAN a busy year for Silverstein” and “thinking ABOAT the scene we came from.”
- Super stoked on how butthurt all the fggt skram elitists will be about this- “WTF SILVERSTEIN ISN’T ALLOWED TO LIKE WHAT I LIEK!!!!”
- I hate American Nightmare and Propaghadi, but I’m glad that they’re giving some dap to sweet bands like NOFX and Green Day (srs)!
- Props for covering the awesome Canadian band Gob, they were VERY underrated- big ups to the American sludge/PV Gob, they were really cool guys, but the Canadian Gob were SICK (peep their best song here)
- I listened to Orchid once for like 20 seconds and there was too much screaming for me to handle, but I remember Will Dandy from his previous band Laceration and generally being an awesome dude, so I back them. Fun fact: the first band I ever interviewed was Capitalist Casualties back in 1994, and Will was the guy who put me in touch with them!
Basically my thoughts are summed up by Master Of Onions:
LOOK AT ALL THAT NO FUN CLUB. Deah lawd, take a chill pill. Hardcore isn’t some holy grail of music that nobody else can like. It’s almost as if you’re all only listening to teh skramz just so you can listen to something nobody else listens to in . These are good doods who grew up with hardcore covering something they like. This is the same as Alex Bigman being in Fight Fair or that guy from Poison the Well being in Sleigh Bells. I think it’s pretty fucking cool that hardcore kids have infiltrated so many different kinds of music. Also their Propagandhi and American Nightmare covers were fuckin great, will be listening to this.
U mad, skram snobs?? Will Alex Bigman be voted out of office as SKRAM COMMANDER??? In b4 tumblrsluts start friend requesting Billy Werner.
