Metal Blade Records. Band was called Agony Column, even though they were a metal band they were as much a part of the scene as Bad Mutha Goose (funk) or the Killer Bees (reggae). I guess you could say Texas punk didnt live by a rule book
What kept the thing going was kids making their own fun not any kind of ideology or isms & schisms. Maybe isms & schisms were important in San Francisco or at Dischord House but in all the other cities not so much.
What bugs me is that the ideologies and isms & schisms are so much easier to latch onto than the reality and so thats what the Ivory Tower will write as if it was the real thing when in fact it wasnt for the vast majority of people.
