President Kennedy - Demo 2007
I love this demo, it's great! I just realized this came out a few months after the Hectic demo I posted earlier so I guess you could say it's reminiscent of Hectic. That 'southern rock riff in hardcore thing' I commented on earlier? I usually hate that but when my friends do it I end up liking it. I have a hard time disliking friend's bands especially when they're passionate about them. This was a step in a new direction for Bremerton bands at the time; the lyrics were much more serious and musical style began to branch out a bit. The music is driving and intense and the vocals are insane. The thing I like about Bremerton that parallels Olympia is that they always have tons of bands but they all sound different. Different subgenres within hardcore punk. Also, I think I caught an Anatomy of a Ghost reference? That's kind of wild. Unfortunately President Kennedy has disbanded. I'll put up the seven inch later. They used to cover Void "Who Are You". That was always a rager. Tony of Sunset and Game Over fame, Benn of Poseidon Sunset and HIV fame, Dustin of HIV and Sunset? fame, and Griffin of Sunset Game Over and Sojourner fame.
