JUSTIN OGDEN WANTS YOU!



WANT YOUR BAND TO BE HEARD ACROSS THE COUNTRY? JUSTIN IS WILLING TO DO THAT.

"so i had this idea today: before i leave for the big tour let down's doing in the fall (us, have heart, ceremony and blacklisted, full USA) i wanted to use it in a way that would somehow benefit our area's hardcore scene as well. so i came up with the idea to make a compilation of sorts of doylestown area hardcore bands that i could hand out for free on tour.

if i can get this together i plan to get a song or two from all of the relevant bands in this area, burn them onto a CD with an insert that my roommate will illustrate (he did the one page funnies, the not normal logo, the let down 'europe can suck' it, etc) and then have them for free on our merch table, give them to people who buy our ****, and hand them to my friends who live in other areas. literally any band in the area (any by this area i mean like, all around doylestown, even like wilkes-barre bands and delco area bands if they wanted to be are welcome. no jersey though) who plays hardcore, punk, or hardcore/punk will be welcome to be on the comp. if you're down i'm not going to tell anyone they're not good enough to be on it, i want this comp to be in the spirit of the new breed tape comp of NYHC back in the day. obviously every band on that thing wasn't absolution or anything but just because you're not a "first-tier" local headliner or some **** doesn't mean you don't deserve to get your **** out there and be heard.

ok, if you're down all you need to do is:

1) sendspace a song or two that you want to be on it. i don't care if they're previously released, rough mixes, exclusive tracks, whatever whatever. that's all on you - if i were you i would put my best foot forward though because 9/10 times this would be the first time most of the people who will be hearing this will be hearing you.

2) supply me with $5. this isn't a money-making scheme, CDRs/sleeves/copies all cost money and i don't think $5 per band is exactly going to break the bank. if i get this together i plan to supply each band with several copies of the thing too, it will be a cool little item and to drive home the point that i'm not just trying to gip $5 off you, if you can supply CDRs or CD sleeves you have laying around i will gladly take that instead of the five. the money is negotiable because at the end of the day i'd rather have your band on it than not on it but it would help me alot if you could pony up the money so i can really make this happen. every cent i get will go directly into making more copies of this thing, and i know i can get every copy of this CD i produce into the hands of someone who will listen to it, so the more of you who aren't jews about a lousy five bucks, the better.

anyway since i leave on october 20th i'm giving myself a decent amount of time to get this together so if you're interested get at me here or on AIM or whatever so i can start making a list of who's going to be on it and whatnot. like i said, punk/hardcore bands only, all the indie/whatever bands of the area seem to do a great job promoting the **** out of themselves on their own time, and if they need any more they can just pay to get an add on MTV2 like that ****ty band ruse of fools did back a few years ago.


so, hit me up if you're interested

INTERVIEW WITH GREG FROM CONCRETE JUNGLE



I sat down with Greg over a nice brunch in my father's study to conduct this interview and asked the singer of Concrete Jungle what was beyond the jungle. Tune in...

DTHC: You wanna do this interivew now?
Greg: i'd rather be smoking a bowl...was that the first question?

DTHC: Go smoke one
Greg: brb
Greg: ay dog

DTHC: Ok, first, who are you? What band are you in? How long have you been attending shows?
Greg: Greg Marchand, i'm in concrete jungle, i've been going to shows since allie cislak gave me a the rock paper scissors e.p by mute, so 7th grade.

DTHC:
You are in Concrete Jungle. You guys just started and you are a fairly new, young band. What do you hope to bring to the plate with CJ?
Greg: what we wanted to do with concrete jungle is just bring something fresh. Doylestown is constantly shifting music styles. Metalcore, pop punk, "old school" hardcore, all phases this towns seen in one way or another. We've started at a point where creativity and uniqueness are running high and people aren't so worried about breaking the norm, i guess what i'm trying to say is, we just want to sound like something new, a little heavy, a little blazed, real pissed. we also want to bring the jungle sound to d-town, something funky.

DTHC:
You just recorded new songs and they are tight as hell. The lyrics are straight forward and straight up raw...where do you find inspiration to write?
Greg: thank you, a lot of the lyrics i write are just things that i wish i could have just said to someones face but didn't get the chance or just didn't. Also being around really retarded people or idiot girls i just think to myself like whats the best way to describe these people, why are they pissing me off so much. So i guess my inspiration are dumb sluts and drunk assholes.

DTHC:
What other up and coming bands besides the Jungle should we look out for this fall / winter?
Greg: i think suburban scum are looking to be pretty good, always been a fan of stay sharp look out for whatever they do, and do listein to weekend nachos. and layin' waste.

DTHC:
Give me your opinion on the state of the Doylestown scene.
Greg: the scene is pretty good, i mean were all close, were all friends, it'd be nicer to see kids that aren't always around come to shows more often. I just wish that there were more basement shows and the wacky shit that used to happen at depression shows, i don't know.

DTHC:
Rank the 5 best places to get a burrito.
Greg: 1. burrito night at the marchands 2. chipotle 3. el taco 4. baja fresh 5. anywhere but california tortilla

DTHC:
Last word? Shout outs? whatever.
Greg: everyone should all say thank you to bob meadows, dion made out with the inspiration for the song sloth, weed, text 267-614-5735 for nudes.
