Faves for Mar 23, 2018:
These guys have been yelling at me through the stereo for the better part of 10 years. First as WOMEN, then as VIET CONG. Now as Preoccupations.
Of course they are going to get the Joy Division/Interpol rigmarole, but there’s something else in the songs.
Maybe it’s Calgary winters? Alberta mosquitoes? Don’t know, but SOMETHING is making them cranky… and it’s coming out in amazing music.

It’s everything I didn’t want pop-punk to be.
But it’s not pop-punk. But it IS pop-punk…
I don’t know. I just love this dude.
