Hometown... well, not much going on. It would be easy to say Monomen/Estrus, that scene, but I always hated it (Monomen anyway) and was interested in stuff my friends were doing instead. A lot I can't remember off the top of my head. I was talking to another "native" a while ago about some of the old street bands & punk rock that got us through high school. Maybe more like folks I'm most fond of. The guys from Saucer, Noggin, drummer for Dune Buggy, Grien Cow, Outside, bunch of other shit.
Where I live now: It's a hotbed over here. Paul Revere & Raiders, Dead Moon, Poison Idea, Mini Max (old Portland white boy r&b late 60's-early 70's), Kingsmen, History of NW Rock comp. bands from around here. The Hunches, Observers, Sk & Punk Ass Bitches & Muddy River Nightmare Band/the collective stuff those guys did previously leading up to where they are now, The Silverkings, High & Mighty, Goddamn Gents, Exploding Hearts, Phantom Lights, Triggers, Weaklings, Fliptops, Riffs, Minds a ton more shit I can't remember right now. Especially proud of how the place is looking as of right now, it's been really good so far this year. Rectangles, Reptilian Civilian, Eegos, Nice Boys, Pure Country Gold, The Ones, Howie & Hot Knives, OSda Pop Kids, there's other shit going on that's good as well (my shit), etc.
I'm horribly ashamed of: Dandy Wharhols (somebody mow these fucks down with an uzi before anybody else gets AIDS), Everclear, the shit stain these groups left all over our fair city, I'm not a fan of anything related to college emocore pop at all and there's a fucking metric ton of it here.
