I publish zines (right now it's called Hellcat) but I have a hard time sticking to one name. I've been involved in hardcore/punk rock since 1989, but I'm not one of those people who sit and talk about how cool it was "back in the day" or whatever. I think punk rock needs more activism and a better sense of humor...on Irc my nick is Lucky_13." Elvis On 10 Jul 1997 "Elvis..." <dench@coastnet!com> wrote: "Um...Self proclaimed vegan warrior."

He is the friendliest vegan on the west coast, and he is full to the brim with integrity. He does sing in a band as of July 1st and he is hoping that it will be called MonkyBoy. He hopes... He does a zine and distro under the name of xburn it cleanx and hopes to start a label in the near future. He is married to a beautiful woman that he calls dench, and together they have three cats...which are all the family they need. He loves to talk about religion and spirituality and their place in a modern HC society, as well as all things pertaining to sexuality. Try him out...he loves it. His all time favourite band is Trial, who are second only to Bane and sometimes Earthmover...depending on the day. He will do shows for touring bands solely because he likes bands and most of the sounds they can make. Do not be fooled into believing he is a HC kid only, because xgerryedgex has vast musical tastes ranging from Elvis to the Replacements... "All in all xgerryedgex is a damn good guy. Visit his web page at <http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/2879/index.html> or email him at <xgerryedgex@geocities!com>." spitbrother On 24 Jul 1997 Ralf Sandner <RalfSandner@swol!de> wrote: "uuh. emm, real name is Ralf, age is 32, got involved with Punk at 14 in 1979, putting up gigs in Stuttgart/Germany since 1989, writing for PLOT fanzine, constantly playing in bands since 1980... like punk of course ;-) hate the bad apects of punk today: major label sellouts, sXe jocks, gang bullshit in hardcore, the heroin revival in the crust scene... racism, fascism, sexism, homophobia becoming tolerated in parts of the scene(s). the scene here is pretty much divided... i, among some other older guys, am the only one who visits mostly all kind of shows (as long as they are not by major label acts) which can qualify as "punk"... so on every show i see faces who will never come to shows of the other clique... you have 77 style gigs, hardline sXe, moderate sXe, emo, "new york" hardcore, crust and hardly never the crowds mix... on the other hand you have the kids who watch mtv and they just go to every "punk" band on a major, without finding out that there is another scene... check http://www.diy-punk.org/spitbrother/ for some more info about me" Sikander On 03 Dec 1997 Sikander <SikanderXe@aol!com> wrote: "ok. my name is sikander, I'm vegan sXe. I listen to all kinds of hardcore, but I like old school the best. my favorite bands right now are ten yard fight, ensign, and youth of today. I'm from michigan where the hardcore scene is kinda crappy, but in the summer lots of good bands stop by here. I also skateboard, which I've been doing for 4 years. I've got a homepage but it sucks right now, all there is right now is hardcore reviews, I will be working on it during winter break though., so here's the URL: http://www.msu.edu/~khansika." Lars Hi. I'm the kid who looks after this FAQ for ya. I live Sydney, Australia with my lovely wife, our very cute son and two kittens. I'm an eclectic mix of old school and new school. I like my Xs big. ------------------------------ Lars Norved Technology Research & Development '\ /\ /` Australian Broadcasting Corporation | \ \ | GPO Box 9994, SYDNEY NSW 2001, Australia ./ \/ \, Tel +612 9333-5230 Fax +612 9333-5443 Net email@example.com
