┴┬┴┤・_・├┴┬┴ Nº122 Sound as Art & Can Hit You in The Heart 🌺 🌸
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #122 • View online
I’ve been a punk dude over 30 for a few year now. Some clichés do apply. Hell, I tweaked my back doing a nose manual on my BMX today…
So you can imagine when one of my all-time favorite bands released their first album in 15 years last Friday: I was more than simply stoked.
I first saw American Nightmare at a venue in Atlanta called Under The Couch on May 25th, 2002. Underoath, Striking Distance & Death Threat also played. Their album Background Music is easily my most played record ever. Wes’ songwriting set them apart then & still does today.
Like, for instance, this song on the new record that is essentially just a verse. A poem, even. (🎥  on Insta)
🌺 “Flowers Under Siege” 🌸
Flowers grow from the underground
To be stared at and stepped on and sold
Until what’s beautiful is too old
Been under siege since I was a seed
And I’ll be under siege ‘til they re-bury me 
I think that even if as a listener you can’t appreciate the sound as art, what he writes down can hit you in the heart. 
As always thank you for reading,
Jon
p.s. 
who else is going to the show in Eindhoven on May 1?!
