Now I’m truly old. I’ve lived to see punk and thrash return to the station formerly known as KCMU. I guess the kids think it’s hip to be angry again. I’m glad! I was getting completely, aardvarkly sick of the whiney, neo-paisley, post-cobain stuff that passes for college radio these days. It stopped being fun after Hammerbox broke up. Good to see the hyperactivity return.
Still it’s kind of weird to think there isn’t any new sounds out there to replace the tired stuff now. Punk is fun but revivials do not creativity make.
