For this podcast, the goal post is set up for the final two songs. I actually laughed when I paired them together: Kelli Peach Pop and No Statik is pretty much like rolling a scoop of ice cream into society’s ashes and licking away.
And I like them both, for wildly different reasons. No reason to be all “subdivisions of the mind / scene cop” about it.
My argument is the thirteen songs which precede them set up part of the grey area between the two. Your conclusions may vary. Depends how uptight you are.
Let’s all get fat off this current buffet of great music being played and released by DIY punks. Get out the sweatpants, stretch the elastic of your ears, dig in, and get down.
PS: A note about the photo. The reason for the napkin? I was about to eat some pizza and there weren’t any pockets in my Buttercup uniform. Uniform, not costume. We worked.
