New Year - Mix Tape


New Years, if you're a punk, isn't really that exciting; unless of course you're a party kid, in which case you're either uneducated or not a punk. While the Tacoma and Seattle scenes had their large venue shows Olympia decided to do something a bit different; namely, plugging in anywhere with an outlet and playing for as long as we can. The first stop was the play-shed of a school because it was raining a bit. Joined by friends from Bremerton/Redmond Mondo Aggro set things off to a good start. Jamming included their demo tape songs a Joan Jett cover and a DRI cover. Skanking, circle pitting, nakedness and thrashing ensued. After a while people started stopping by and checking things out. The spectacle of soda cans and people running around to punk music in a play-shed lit by Christmas lights on New Years was of moderate intrigue to the neighborhood. White Wards set up to play but not before cops showed up. The cop was able to bear witness to an original song and a negative approach cover until it became apparent he wasn't having it. Seeing as we were on private property there was no need to make it any sort of spectacle of standing up to authority. The idea of moving to public property out of his jurisdiction came up. We packed up and headed to a Gazebo in a business district in Lacey. Although the park was closed they still had power running to their Gazebo. White Wards finished their set and Trainyard set up to play. It was quite wet so many spills were taken but all in good fun. The power shut off so Red & Black and Total Disgrace were unable to play but the New Years was well spent. To all you nerds who acted like jocks and went to teen parties this year; suck it. You talk it, we fucking live it.
In the spirit I chose to make a mixtape. I apologize for the length but I only have 90 minute tapes. In the future I'll just make fake ones for the purpose of sharing that are shorter. I began with mainly snotty hardcore punk bands like F, Deep Wound, Hated Youth, the F.U.'s, the Freeze, the Insults, Adrenalin OD, Chronic Sick, etc. but it soon took on a life of its own. The commonality in all the songs is that, for the most part, they rage the whole way through. Kick of your new year correctly.
