    Crustypunks - accounts from the edge of society

    crustypunks.blogspot.com

    Crustypunks are a tribe of tattooed nomads found in Tompkins Square Park, a locus of idiosyncratic culture and civil unrest in New York City's East Village.
    Some are weird, some are sad, some plain crazy and some uplifting but all of them are rather impressive.

    Never liked them, mostly because because i grew up with the more metal and d-beat heavy crustpunk ala Tragedy, Assück and From Ashes Rise.

    Sigh. Mongo middle-class wanna be hobo junkie crusty punks. The loserest kind of punk.

    Anyway, the music that the term crust is associated with is awesome.

    "Crusties" has been in use to describe urban low lifes and dropouts before crust punk came to be, so yeah.

    And yes, some of the interviewed are middle class kids who took their crimethink a tad to seriously and others like their opium. But it's about their stories and not some identitary bullshit ala punk or not.

    It doesn't change the fact that it's crap. Yes, everybody's got his own musical preferences, but lets be objective. This music is just horrible, how can anyone with good musical taste like this.

    No, you think it is crap. Taste is subjective. I for one don't like death metal. That doesn't mean its crap.

    People have different music tastes, if you don't like it, don't listen to it and move on.

    Look who's dancing about architecture.

    Suuuuuuuuure lot's of (Neo-, Melodic-, Whatever-)Crust and D-Beat may sound boring and same-y to bystanders but that's the same for every genre.

    Not sure how much people would call them crust with the post rock influences, but one of my favourite bands:






    Also, really enjoy Witch Hunt and Aus-Rotten

    It's all subjective and that but here you're just wrong. Very wrong.
    For one thing, without crust we wouldn't have Neurosis and that's a world I don't want to know about.


    and only one album later...
