Sean (Bassist) und Anthony (Gitarrist) haben sich die Zeit genommen und uns sehr schöne Texte zugeschickt, die ihr euch unbedingt mal durchlesen solltet! Ich bin wohl einer der größten Fans unserer Plattenreihe: Es ist immer wieder super interessant und spannend zu lesen, wie sehr eine einzige Platte jemanden prägen kann bzw welch Erinnungen an einer einzigen runden Scheibe kleben!
Thanks heaps, Sean & Anthony!! Vielen Dank an dieser Stelle auch nochmal an die liebe Katrin, ohne die dieser Artikel wohl nie entstanden wäre! We love Flix Records!!!
Hi my name Is Sean Carney and I play bass and sing in The Scandals. The record I randomly pulled from my collection is None More Black’s „This is Satire“ released in 2006 and limited to 310 on pink vinyl. This is the second full length from the band and one of my favorites in my collection. I am excited with this as a blind pick because it did come with a story. I got this record back in 2009. NMB were not playing as much anymore so when it was announced, The Bouncing Souls, 7 Seconds and None More Black were playing together in Philadelphia I immediately bought three tickets. At the time I had never been to Philadelphia so my buddies and I made a weekend trip out of it. On that hot day in august we took off from Rhode Island in my terribly reliable 2001 dodge neon. We drove for about an hour when my car began overheating. My heart sank at the thought of missing the show and letting my friends down. It took over two hours to get a tow truck to where we were stranded and by the time I got to the repair shop it seemed our weekend was doomed. At the last minute we were able to find a car to borrow and we hauled ass down to Philly. By the time we got to the venue, I could hear the rumblings of The Bouncing Souls and knew we missed 7 Seconds and None More Black. Although bummed about that, the Bouncing Souls put on a great show and we did get to see Lou from Sick of It all join them on their cover of „Good Lookin‘ Out“. On my way out of the venue I stopped by the merch table and found this very record. The guy selling for them ended up pulling the tapped copy down and was proud to tell me this was the very last one. Bummed I missed the band but very excited to grab this vinyl. We ended up having a blast in Philly. I remember that trip every time I spin this record. Since that show I ended up catching NMB at Fest 10 in Gainesville Florida and The Scandals shared the stage with them and The Bouncing Souls at Home For The Holidays 2014. Stand out tracks from this release include „We dance on the ruins of the stupid stage“ „Under My Feet“ „Zing Pong“ and „D is for Doorman (Come on in)“.
So the record that was randomly selected is Gorrila Biscuits– Start Today, an album that has a significant amount of meaning for me.
When I was first getting into the punk/hardcore scene and going to shows I was was only exposed to the more mainstream and well known acts like the Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, The Clash (the beginners guide to punk rock), and random „local bands“ from mix tapes that my friends would give me listen to, but being a thrash metal kid at the time I always thought something was missing for me…mostly speed. I always agreed with the message that the artist was trying to convey but the music wasn’t as aggressive as I would have liked.
