Flagpole Music Awards: Punk

(Graphic/Ziona Kocher)

What are you lookin’ at?! Oh. The nominees for Best Athens Punk group? Ok, I can respect that. You see, these guys have enough guts, power chords, and attitude to be the best of the best. So check out the links, listen a bit, then click on this link before May 28th to vote for your favorite.

Everything! Ends! In! Exclamation! Points! Seriously though, it doesn’t get much better than the Agenda. Loud. Short. Dance yer arse off. That’s what it’s all about, right?

These guys are aggressive as hell. So much so that I’d put them in hardcore before punk, but to each his own, I suppose. Expect a lot of screaming and drums that will nearly kill you with their ferocity.

I have no real clue what the term “grindcore” means but it seemingly applies to Cop Dope. Guitar takes center stage here, thrashing and pounding you until your ears bleed. RAWK!

Dead Dog is very much alive, thank you. They’ll do flips for you and have this neat little trick of playing actual music. It’s a mix of punk, rock, and more rock.

Must. Resist. “Spell.” Joke….. argh! In all seriousness though, this group gives me hope for the future of rock. Not so much punk as just straight-forward indie rock but I’ll let that slide.
