I’m willing to share the news that new found glory will have a christmas album out on dec/3, but don’t expect to hear much more from me on the subject

yes, I listened to the two new pup songs … happy now?

why hasn’t travis scott pulled escape plan from the airwaves? … jesus fuck

to chelsea and [especially] to buffalo, what the actual fuck? … to #lufc and to #lcdh44, well ok, I guess I’ll take it, but not getting the warm and fuzzies here, nah mean?

oh, and lewis, if you genuinely think valtteri is the reason you didn’t win that race, you need to check yo’self

FUN ALK3 OR SKIBA OR BLINK NEWS

#AlkalineTrio totally kicked ass in worcester, ma, saturday night … wow … a few shitty pics available here (along with shitty pics of lots of other bands I saw over the past few days) … https://grandpamusic.wordpress.com/2021/11/10/grandpa-finally-hits-some-live-fucking-shows-nov-2021/

SHIT YOU SHOULD BE LISTENING TO (band, song, etc … my main playlist)

randells; el mundo loco; pop/melodic/ramonescore punk … from swedish people land … I know some of you don’t like it when I add a song to my playlist that’s not representative of the album (or even the band) … get over yourselves … it’s a crazy world

latewaves; too much; punk-ish indie cool … awesome stuff

weatherworn; last rites; this one’s a melodic punk banger from these awesome mostly pop-punkers

steel bridges; pour jamais oublier; melodic punk goodness

dan andriano and the bygones; sea level              ; oh my god, yes, yes, yes … troubadour melodic punk … yet another example of truly one of the great voices of a generation

urethane; gravity; pop punk grooves (and yes, this is steve caballero’s band)

don’t panic; what’s a guy to do; it’s terrific … it’s melodic punk … fight me

don’t panic; one more time; more great melodic punk from these power-pop/indie/melodic punk lovelies

hawthorne heights; palm canyon drive; awesome melodic punk

sincere engineer; gone for so long; terrific up-tempo melodic punk stuff

face to face; blanked out; old guys still kicking melodic punk ass

face to face; this is my vanishing act; another great melodic punker

cold years; headstone; absolutely spectacular scottish melodic punk … terrific stuff … like rise against good

shackleford; dragged along; totally terrific melodic punk … this came completely out of left field for this grandpa … wasn’t on my calendar or my radar … so good

shackleford; guilt would creep; more spectacular melodic punk

the last gang; prosthetic lost cause; LA melodic punk doesn’t get much better than this …

the last gang; shameless; … unless of course it’s this … ok, I acknowledge that my memory is not the best, but I’m thinking this is a strong candidate for song of the year

grave neighbors; outrage porn; excellent melodic punk noise

frank carter and the rattlesnakes; cupid’s arrow; if long hairs and melodic punkers had a child, I imagine it might come out a lot like this

kind kaputt; leichter; terrific german melodic punker with more than a bit of grunge rubbed on it

kind kaputt; wasser; more spectacular german melodic punk

cold years; home; gonna have to call this one a melodic punk n roller … these scottish lovelies can do no wrong, apparently

OTHER GOOD LISTENS FROM THE PAST FEW DAYS

fully released and added to grandpa’s library

youth fountain; keepsakes and reminders; pop punk … when they decide to rock the fuck out, and when they put it all together, actually kinda awesome

faster forward; feeling nostalgic; if you like your punk rock fast and snotty, you’ll dig this

another one down; a bitter descent; mostly pop punk

dan vapid and the cheats; escape velocity; fun, melodic, indie punk

debt neglector; dirty water; in-your-face melodic/skate punk

the band for disease control and prevention; glitter tits; diy/garage punk n roll … tyneside repre-fucking-zent … I think I speak for everyone when I say that glitter tits are the best kind of tits … am I right? … can I get an amen? … no? … yeah, you’re probably right

the ramonas; haphazard; still sometimes sounding ramonescore-ish, but there’s something (punk) here for everyone

mark murphy and the meds; on the brink; melodic/pop punk n roll

heart attack man; thoughtz and prayerz; off-kilter punk

postage; s/t (or lp1); gruff-ish, garage-y melodic punk … mostly being reviewed as all brand new material, which it actually isn’t, but what it definitely is is awesome

upcoming albums with pre-release singles already streaming

scowl; how flowers grow; out nov/19/2021; indie/melodic punk n roll … streamed seeds to sow … groovy sound

pulsebeats; lookin out; not available until jan/7/2022; streamed she sings like joey ramone … melodic punk n roll

avem; three birds stoned; I’m hearing that this will be out spring 2022; canadian melodic punk … streamed calling card

senses fail; hell is on your head; release date is all the way out to jul/15/2022; we should probably expect post-h? … streamed I’m sorry I’m leaving

simple plan; tbd; guessing there’ll be a 2022 release; streamed the antidote … liking it, tbh … we should expect pop punk (or maybe pop-punk-ish alt)
