No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA


Happy Wednesday folks, and welcome to the latest installment of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly overdose of punk (and punkish!) rock.

The week is only so long and we have so much to get through, so let's get right to it. On today's episode, we get nostalgic on old tv shows, discover my favorite instrument, learn some European geography, see firsthand the dangers of trying gateway punk rock bands, and talk about everyone's favorite subject, American nazis. 

OH also we play dope fucking music from groups like Millions of Dead Cops, The Offspring, Bigwig, Off with their Heads, Valient Thorr, Violent Soho and more. What are you waiting for? Go listen, NOW:

(Emily's) MOVING DAY!


Alright guys, I have some kinda viral infection, and it is a total fucking butt. So I did not have the chance to make this week's episode. BUT have you ever known me to leave you completely empty-handed? No. I would not do that to you...the power of punk (and punkish!) rock is strong in this one.

Just so happens I was reminded that a buddy of mine, Emily, is moving back to her place in Columbia Heights today, after recovering for reconstructive surgery on her knee...which essentially amounted to her being stuck on her parent's couch for like 3 whole months. I don't know how the hell she did it, as I am going stir crazy after 3 days w/ this stupid bug. Not how the Souls woulda wanted to spend their summer vacation at all.

SO, with that in mind, Emily, here is your moving day playlist. The #WWA version of a fucking Jock Jams CD. Just picture me yelling irritatingly enthusiastic slogans of support in between each song. 

"You got this!" 
"No the table is NOT supposed to break apart that way"
"Atta girl!"
"ouch that looked like it hurt"
"NO DON'T LIFT WITH YOUR BACK!" 
"Is it time for pizza and beer yet?"

This is funny, cos i don't think she's actually moving anything per se, just going back home. 

Alright, enjoy the playlist punks, i'll (hopefully) be back in business for next week's episode
