[Here’s a letter to my fourteen year old self…]
It’s Neil right here from 2023… Yeah, that’s proper, the longer term… Now, I’m not right here to let you know that the world continues to be shit, or let you already know the profitable lottery numbers when it begins in 1994. Nope, sorry, you’ve gotta work all that out for your self.
My purpose for writing is to let you know that I respect you’re embroiled within the harshest parts of underground punk rock, yeah I get that. Our love of Lifeless Kennedys, Crass, Chaos UK, Blitzkrieg, Vice Squad, The Damned, Discharge and many others won’t ever wane. This obsessive nature for such noise will solely develop and develop. Jesus. These bands are nonetheless going now right here within the twenty first century! No, I’m right here to let you know that your blinkered method to music will broaden as you become older. It gained’t mellow; the truth is it’ll get extra excessive, however broaden all the identical.
I’m scripting this as I’m listening to the brand new album by Scenius, referred to as Life Is A Factor (their second up to now) – you’ll hate it proper now because it’s like a contemporary tackle Kraftwerk, John Foxx and Gary Numan. Nevertheless, someday you’ll adore it and play it often with no guilt. No, you’re not betraying your punk rock roots by even listening to this. The actual fact you’re listening to this album makes you extra punk rock, because it’s about pushing boundaries. This Anglo-French minimal darkwave synth-pop is as punk rock as that Carcass 12” you’ve, just because it’ll fill a void in your life (as all good music does).
Oh, BTW (meaning ‘by the way in which’ in C21) – the profitable lottery numbers on account of be held on nineteenth Nov 1994 are 30, 3, 5, 44, 14 and 22 – cheers.
