I am new.
« on: November 10, 2011, 07:05:24 AM »
Hello.  My name is Colin, and I have been listening for many years -- very rarely live, because I live in Europe, although my passport still insists that I am an American.

You may see my first post in the Spin article thread, if you wish.  It is a video of the dj/failed veejay Smash (aka Adam Smasher) with his band, kickin' out the jams and runnin' his rap.

I am in part responsible for the invention of emo, and I apologize.

Welcome!  No worries, Emo has saved lives, but yes, please tell us more.

I was once a minor punk rock celebrity, whose old band was mentioned as progenitors of emo as a Ding an sich in an oft-plagiarized little emohistory that has been online poisoning the minds of floppy-haired kids for many years now.  It is a something I must live with, and sometimes kids find my e-mail address and ask me for old tapes.  I tell them to get the bangs out of their eyes.  If you own every recoding Jon Wurster is on, you have heard my old band.

Simple google and wiki search.
The Hated were on a Simple Machines comp with Superchunk.

Sorry, too many clues. You've been outed!

Mackro was gonna out me at some point anyway, I figured.  Just being coy as long as I could.

Nevertheless I admire your skills, Hugman.

Your past precedes you, and follows you around a bit, still, not many people can say they helped create a new genre of music! Very impressive.

No Psychotic Norman, no Promise Ring.  Clearly.
