More then the music

Alternative Style Blogger Foxxtailz
I'll freely admit when anyone asks me what kind of music I listen to, I'll start reeling off bands I started to listen to when I was 15. I rarely get into new bands, with the exception of a handful, I don't like this new wave of pop-punk [looking at you Neck Deep and various others, get some NFG and starting line in yo life] I'm not entirely sure why I just found my fave bands and have stuck with them. I don't do it out of stubbornness, or an unwillingness to find new music, I'm just not really bothered about it.

But what about music you used to love but somehow forgot about? Connected to a time or a moment or a feeling? Rediscovering a band can be just as good as when you first discovered them, memories all flooding back. That's basically what happened to me when browsing The Electric bird site. Seeing the band shirts reminded me of a bunch of great bands I used to love, songs that reminded me of being at college, working part-time at a supermarket, hanging out with my friends that were just  as into pop-punk as much as me. Going to festivals, BBQ's by the river, walks along the castle walls, Richards long cuts [lol] getting picked up by my friend's dad after gigs, having our own DIY festivals, late nights in the Barf, waiting outside to say hi to Lights after the show, having the best summers ever and still being just as close 10+ years on. 

I guess the reason I hold onto the music so much is, not only because I love the bands and the songs, I love the memories they hold too. I'm very fortunate to hold as many special ones as I do and even more so that I still have these people in my life. So in honour of that, I picked out two shirts that hold early memories of friendships for me. Rancid cos well, it's Rancid and also they were first introduced to me when I moved away from more mainstream chart music and discovered that there was a whole realm of music that was different. The Cure I've always had a soft spot for and still listen to daily. That band reminds me of when I first moved out when I was 19 to a shitty little converted chapel with a shitty little bathroom and shitty slanted ceilings making it impossible to walk around my room, but it was my shitty little chapel. Whenever we got a new cat [I had three at one point rest their fluffy little souls] as a way of initiation to the house we would play ''love cats'' and well dance around pretending to be cats. . . . why? You got me.

  1. Those trousers are gorgeous! I love having memories attached to music, including coming to see Cute Is What We Aim For in Portsmouth back when I was 12 before I even considered moving here 6 years later :')
