Punk in 2013 is obsessed with nostalgia perpetuated by festivals where if you pay enough for a 6 day all inclusive pass and book your flights and hotel rooms in time you can see any punk band that ever existed, albeit older and uglier and with their “classic hits” funneled through a fancy sound system manned by the shitty sound guy employee of whatever club or productions company is “making punk happen” at the moment. Way too many current bands exist mostly in the hopes of playing these festivals, or of “taking the next step” and putting out records on a larger “indie” label. (…) We are happy when we hear about punks playing generator shows and blowing up abandoned cars at abandoned strip malls in New Orleans or flipping cars and shooting fireworks at cops in Boston.
