couple tracks from our soon to be record

This is probably the only thing from Brooklyn that people from Brooklyn don’t actually talk about. Check it out if you’re into stuff like Asylum Party - it’s fantastic.
Yo I remember that dog eating that dead bird. I think Direct Approach might have played this show.
Bring back Total Trash
The Vicious - Given Up
Good impression, you should be an actor.
Being poor sucks. Being voluntarily poor or maintaining a middle class life while you dress/act/pretend to be poor is maybe the scummiest thing I can think of.
Punks are so ready to demonize those who refuse to acknowledge their white/straight/male/cis privilege (and rightly so, those are all totally legitimate things) but at the same time are so goddamn oblivious to their own class privilege and able bodied privilege. If you come from a background where you’re able to work, you have an education that makes you employable and your rent is like $100 a month because you choose to live in a punk house with like seven other smelly lazy jackasses, don’t be on welfare. It’s really that easy. Don’t have a paypal button on your blog. Don’t busk with a sign that says “homeless youth, please help” if you still live with your parents. And don’t think for a fuckin second that you can tell me this shit doesn’t happen.
I don’t hate poor people. I hate people who choose to be poor to further their own image because it erases the experience of the lower class and provides scapegoats for politicians who oppose social services that actual poor people need. When some drunk fucker lies about being vegan so they can get an extra $40 on their welfare check every month and spends it all on booze, drugs and magic cards, complaints about “lazy poor people” and “welfare queens” by those seeking to oppress legitimately poor people become validated. Dirty kids aren’t just annoying, they are literally assisting the oppression of the lower class.
