all those mohawks killed punk by Ross Vassilev

riot grrrl is the only good punk left.

the rest is all crap.

the bands all sound alike:
same speed, same riffs
same singer, pretty much

no Exene Cervenka among them
no Lux Interior

they don't seem to know that
slow is BETTER than fast
like, say, Bikini Kill
or Alice Bag Band

they don't seem to get it
that the whole point of punk is
(or was, anyway)
to stand out
to be different
not to play the same music

not one of those bands out there
has any fire, wild creativity
like someone just escaped
from the asylum
or doped up on LSD

the last great punk band was
The Distillers

damn, I miss them.
