In grade 10 my friend Mike J gave me "Survival of the Fattest" and it changed my life forever. It was the first time I heard NOFX, Lagwagon, and Propagandhi. Not to mention NUFAN, Good Riddance, Dieselboy, and more. It carried me on a wild and furious wave of transition from being a Green Day / Offspring fan into being a punk fan. I had never heard music that fast, or that fun. Compilations used to be the best way to find new bands. Nowadays shit is splattered all over the place, and everyone is yelling at the same time. Luckily some rad folks are still putting out compilations of indie bands in an effort to share new sounds and stories. We are honoured to be part of 3 fun compilations this year:
Put on your over-alls and get frisky with this comp of ska and punk bands from around the Puget Sound by Pacific Sound System. Our song "95 Feet" made the cut, and I hope it cuts you.
The 2nd is a wicked mix of punk bands from across the continent. Big thanks to musicsheblogged for including us. Our song "Empty is the new full" is on there, eating away.
And finally, in the sprit of the Christmas season, musicsheblogged has dropped a wicked mix of festive favourites. And our song "A Christmas Song" landed in the opening spot.
Well, time to pour one more then hit the floor, you guys. Enjoy the end of the year, and all the joy and hugging it brings. We look forward to partying big time in 2016. Our new album will drop, along with vids, shows, shame, and shit. Be nice, have fun. -CWP
