Something In The Water.

The title of this blog was inspired by conversations that I've had with people from Memphis and even people from other parts of the world that would describe the sounds of southern punk and hardcore. When ever I listen to a band like Copout, or His Hero Is Gone, that conversation comes up.

This blog is dedicated to all bands from Little Rock and Memphis (although all other bands from the south maybe discussed). In my humble opinion Little Rock and Memphis hardcore/punk bands have rarely been talked about or seen. If you are in one of the bands and have stories or pictures to add let me know. A lot of the music that is posted is out of print, but if you ever find it buy it. I do not make any money off of this, this is to turn people on to stuff that has never really gotten much recognition. If you are in one of the bands and have a problem with your stuff being up here let me know and I will remove it

My first punk rock show was in 91 or 92 It was at the River Front Amphitheater. For those who have either never been through Little Rock or didn't live here back in the 80s or 90s--there was really nothing going on downtown. Under the blue tent at River Front Park I saw this band play with a band from Chicago called 8 bark. Other locals such as Substance, Second Thought (who would be one of Little Rock's only sXe band-- Entrance). That was a life changing show. For years I didn't have this demo until a good friend of mine made it for me. Fishwagon had certain members of Hatful Day and (I believe future Chalk members).
