DO YOU HAVE A COOL STORY FROM THE LATE 90s / EARLY 2000s Punk Scene?

There’s only so many people I can interview on the podcast. However, I’m sure there are a SHIT TON of amazing stories from back then.

If you feel like you have one, email it to me.

Below are some ideas:

  • It could be a story from an episode you heard where you had a different perspective
  • It could be a tour story if you were in a band or roadied for bands
  • Crazy shit that happened at a show
  • Video footage from a show
  • Etc.

Below are some recent submissions.

Lanemeyer / Humble Beginnings Reunion

Lanemeyer / Humble Beginnings Reunion

So I'm from Massachusetts, I live right on the MA/ RI border. Somehow most of my favorite bands from my teen/college days were all from New Jersey (LM, Humble, Boxcar, STD, Midtown, etc). I remember seeing Lanemeyer for the first time in New Bedford MA with River City...

Philadelphia Eagles Sweatsuit Kid 1997-1998

Philadelphia Eagles Sweatsuit Kid 1997-1998

From 1996-2000 I fronted a basement punk band called the Strap-Ons. We played VFWs, American Legion Halls, Fire Halls, Churches, Youth Centers, and Skateparks in the suburbs north of Philadelphia, like you do when you’re in a non-touring, weekender high school punk...

Recording at the Creep House, 1998

Recording at the Creep House, 1998

On the verge of high school, I moved from a rural area above Doylestown Pennsylvania to Willow Grove, a suburb north of Philadelphia.  My teenaged world was blown wide open by cable television, pizza delivery, walkability to the mall, and secret trips to the city on...

Remember That Guy

Remember That Guy

I wish I had driven out to The Regal Beagle to see a show that summer. My sense of direction is abysmal. In the pre-cell phone, fledgling internet days of 1995, the thought of getting lost somewhere in western Pennsylvania, driving around aimlessly in my ‘86 Dodge...

Zine Review of Me Winning Isn’t You Do

Zine Review of Me Winning Isn’t You Do

Alan Rappaport had an issue, or 2, of a zine back in the late 90s. Danny Dunlap from Jill (episode 63) found a copy the other day and I asked him to write a review. Here's what he said: "The zine was clearly written by people in their late teens/early 20’s. The JILL...

The Day At The Fair Story Part 1

The Day At The Fair Story Part 1

In 2001 Lanemeyer broke up. I was merely a recent fan, since I was away at college during the NJPP heyday and missed out on a lot of that scene. Truth be told, I had no idea that scene was even happening until my younger brother started telling me that he was going to...

Dashboard Confessional Story

Dashboard Confessional Story

Back in 2000, I moved to Dallas, TX from NJ for a job opportunity. Full disclosure: Dallas fucking sucks. It's hot, superficial (think L.A. but with way less interesting, talented or cool people), and there's not a whole lot to do. One part of Dallas I actually did...
