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

I have waited for a long time to post this, but it has been well worth the wait. I will admit that Distemper had not been on my radar but I really wish had been before, but thanks to Roy it has been made possible. This band has also has Mike Schiffer from Metro Waste. Distemper came together in 1985 but actually recorded and played shows in 1986. Mike McCarthy (Guitar/Vocals) has written up a really  comprehensive bio on the band that you should also check out. There is also a picture gallery.  I believe they will also be playing the upcoming Antenna reunion so be sure to check that out. In the meantime here is the demo.
